its not haters its just current owners trying to justify reasons they don't need it....but secretly wish they had the feature

i mean i'm sure they aren't to unhappy they got the camaro a year before 2011 owners...fair trade-off

most of these complaints are just sour grapes in my opinion...that thing isn't distracting at all...can't wait to have it

I like the way the black car convieniently pulls up so you can see it.

Let's see some video of it working with the car driving around.

The reason why I am interested in hud is because the way I sit, and the low wheel position setting i prefer the top rpm 5/7k are kinda hard for me to see unless i tilt my head down. So having the hud is not a bad idea, but I got use to just tilting my head.
YEah I am part way there to upgrading mine, I just hope it's not too difficult.

Same hear I can see the instrument panel very well with the way I sit and position everything.

I downloaded iHUD it sucks :(, I also downloaded aSmartHUD and it is better but still not great but I'd rather have my phone someplace other than sitting on my Dash the whole time I am driving.

OPINIONS

back when i was ordering i heard of the HUD and was asking my dealer when it was due to come out and also the addition to the rear back up sensors. I thought about waiting but no official word, but low and behold i did get the sensors (despite the circles, nice feature). I wish i had the HUD, it would be nice to have but even me being # 92,608 i still wouldnt trade mine in bc i just like to over the fact that i coincidently totaled my GP when i did and was able to get the first official release year. Just weird the timing of it all and the fact i was over my first camaro i ever seen in person back in May 09 and fast forward 8 months later and i was putting my order in!

My quote: "Yeah it sickens me over how i totaled my car, and it was a great car, but hey i cant totally regret it happening bc look at what ive got now"

No... It doesn't. This HUD is a bit more advanced than the one in the Corvettes thanks to the Camaro's next-generation electronics.

EDIT: Something else to consider...this CAN be turned off and dimmed separately from the interior lighting in case it becomes too distracting in certain lighting conditions. The controls are on the opposite side of the steering wheel from the headlight controls.

I like it a lot. It doesn't need to be large because it becomes a distraction. It's an additional reference.

I believe HUD was actually used in the millitary first. This isn't "parking assist" or some wussie crap like that. Lets be honest, if you can't park your car... you shouldn't be driving. (maybe a bicycle is more... for you?)

But, regarding HUD... Less time looking away from the road... less chance of an accident. Face it, this is a true improvement to the current method of driving. Not exactly what the millitary invented it for, but it definately works.

That said, I ain't trading in my 2010 for nothin'! But, well done GM!

I completely agree it needs to be an OPTION! But I just don't see how people can be so disappointed in something they were so passionate about the car not having when it was released. Based on the description of what HUD displays I don't think there is a lot more they can display. It shows useful and meaningful data to HELP YOU DRIVE.

DISCLAIMER: I realize not everyone who has posted was around when the HUD was first discussed, and vice versa.
I for one am angry that HUD came out on the 2011, but that's because it DIDN'T come out on the 2010 at all, so I missed getting it.

On the other hand, far too many people jumped down my throat for saying that the backup sensor should be an OPTION, so I can't get on board with anyone complaining that HUD should be optional.

All I can hope for is a retrofit kit. I hope it is do-able.

Unfortunately...HUD as an option is virtually impossible.

After talking to the Great Camaro Team members that attended the Fest....somehow the unit ties into way too many different subsystems of the car to even make half a lick of sense as offering it as an option. I say "somehow" because I'm no engineer...especially when it comes to sensitive electronics.

That implies this is an impossible retrofit.

However, as an electronics/software engineer I can say it would be really poor layout to tie this device into all kinds of systems with a mass of interconnects. The information that needs to be displayed should be readily available over a single connection from the main controller in the car.

I can accept it if they say that the info from the audio/bluetooth/usb controller is separate.

They should be working to integrate all these functions into a standard network on the car so that they can save weight.

The Camaro features their newest electronics "platform"(? I dunno what else to call it). Anyways...like I said, I'm no engineer so I can't really delve into it intelligently. All I can guess is that systems like OnStar, ECM, and the "silver box" all have to communicate to it...and everything must sync up...meaning lots of inter-system communication...all displayed through the HUD...which can get complicated.
