Thats wicked...Thank you so much for posting these pics, I'm still waiting on mine 2LT non RS with roof ordered 05/18/10. One thing that I was was wondering is if you can turn the HUD off when you don't want it on?

on that note, my GTP has HUD, if you wear polarized sunglasses, you cant see the display

looks cool and all, but after using it for a while i dont even have it on in the GTP anymore

I wish it looked cooler. Like more futuristic and maybe used the Camaro font or something, it just looks blah and its so tiny it looks lost on that big windshield.

Is it just me or does the HUD look really far?

I agree. Looks like something that would annoy me actually. I'n not too lazy to move my eyes a few degrees down to look at the damn dashboard instead.

It looks far because of the angle and the pic was taken with an cell phone. Being tall, the camera was at a different position than my eyes. The good thing is that it can be adjusted up or down based on your sight line, or turned off if that's what you prefer. Pictures do give an idea, but it really doesn't do it justice.

For me, it was never something I would have needed in a car but since I've started using, I really like it a lot.

my dad has HUD in his 02 (i think) vette and yea its cool at first but i find myself lookin back down at the dash anyway so its different but it wears off after awhile in my opinion it would be a waste of money to change over my 2010 windshield and everything for somethin like that

Im glad I did not wait for this feature. I was expecting a much larger display. That tiny little graphic IMHO is not worth it. Is it really that much harder to glance down at the Driver Information screen between the gauges??

I think the HUD system should be re-designed to cover a larger span of the windshield. Maybe it's just because I'm a product of the digital age..... and i'm used to info displays from a variety of racing video games....... but sorry, I'm not impressed.

Yes it does. I work at a glass company and many many years ago we tried it on a grand prix and no go. There is a filament in the glass that projects it And GM was way ahead of there time on this all the other auto makers had a little 3x3 or so square in the window that you could see and it looked like sh**.

NICE!

I think the camera position has a lot to do with it looking small, the camera was in front of the steering wheel. IF you are looking at it from where your head actually is during driving, it probably is a little bigger and more readable. I've never looked at one in real life before and just my thoughts. Plus they really cant put a huge projection up there and potentially block your view of the road.

With all due respect..a large display? Would that not defeat the whole entire purpose. I agree it is def not a "need", but something cool to have. No one said it was hard to look down...I don't see a purpose in the HUD excluding MPH, nor would I drive this car off the road into a blaze of flames without it. You are arguing you want a larger display (which I can only assume meaning more information) but you also don't see need for it? Did you just mean the text should be larger? This cell phone pic does not do justice to the size. While it is not "large", the size is fine when you see it in person.

I don't really understand why people find cost as an issue. The cost of the vehicle increased only 350 dollars, and in all likelihood we would have seen an increase eventually regardless. I can't remember the last time a vehicle did not increase slightly in cost from one production year to the next production year...and that was with no additions. This HUD is not much different from the vettes...and we won't see some futuristic, pilot HUD before the vette does.

The day you see a Gran Turismo mega HUD across your windshield is the day you no longer control the vehicle...
