So Ofer, how many does this make that you have installed? 3 or 4, this includes yours as the first one.

Thumbs up I saw the light!

I briefly considered it, yet I cast the notion aside when I realized that the only real need I had was knowing when to shift during a pass in the 1/4 mile. A shift light does that task better; the light is evident as you blast down the strip without having to read a damn thing. Don't YOU hate looking down when you're going 125+ MPH?

If you had it you, will see your tach on your windshield as well as you MPH, but for some a light is good.

No one near Toledo, Ohio interested in doing an install? How about if you are doing yours you let me watch/help you do it?

Anyone have a clue if there is any speed shops within 250 miles of me that will do an install?

I want the HUD unit really bad. The dealer told me the 2010 Camaro 2SS/RS would come w/ HUD but obviously it didn't. I was one of the first to get my Camaro in this area. I had never even seen one on the road before I got mine so I have had a lot of time to "stew" about not getting the HUD that I was told I would.

You can get the parts from Patrick at GMPARTSDIRECT, he has put together a packet that includes all parts that are needed. The harness you can get from 2SSRS, he did ALL of the research and now makes 2 different harnesses, one with ABL plugs and one without the ABL plugs. With expereience this Mod/install can be done in 4.5 Hours, this is how long it took 2SSRS to do the third install that he did, the first one took from 9:30 AM until dark, the second from 8 AM to 3 PM with a break for lunch. I helped on the first two installs, Ofers car on Friday and my car on Saturday the weekend after Thanksgiving. By the way this was done by two 50+ year old guys. Ofer I will be sending you those pictures I told you about, I got the problem fixed with my computer, and I am waiting on pictures for "Saved 3 & 4"

Here are a couple of pics of the dash.

Joe








Kinda looks like it is sitting across the street on the neighbors curb. (Yea know it looks smaller, was trying to get the steering wheel in focus, which makes the display look farther out in front of the car. Normally looks like it is sitting above the front edge of the hood.)

I still have a question whether or not the OEM windshield in my 2010 is compatible for a HUD unit. I have read online where the OEM windshield creates blurry and hard to read numbers. I talked to a dealer and asked if they were installing HUD units and he said no because most people don't want to spend the money on a new windshield on top of the cost of the HUD unit + the install cost.

Does anyone know FOR SURE if the HUD graphic is OK with the 2010 windshields? Is there a difference in the appearance of the HUD graphic when reflecting on a 2010 windshield -vs- a windshield that is installed in a HUD optioned Camaro?

The blur is only on the small lines you see in the pics not the numbers, you can read all the numbers fine but the lines in the tac is a little blurry, If like me you drive some then you know its only a mater of time till you will need a new windshield, That is the time to upgrade not before.

Hay if you make it out to CF2 i know of 5 cars that will have it in there car, and you can ask to see how it looks.

Happy new year to all

No issues at all using the HUD with the standard 2010 windshield here. I don't keep the tac up, so that might be blurry on the fine lines, but flipping through the pages I didn't notice it as being hard to read.

I let a friend drive the car for the first time yesterday. His remarks about the HUD ranged from 'cool' to 'awesome', but never once did he mention it being blurry or hard to read.

All I know is that when I drive my 2005 Dodge Magnum or 1987 Camaro RS, I miss the HUD that I now have in my 2010 Camaro 2LT/RS. I keep looking for it and realize I am driving the wrong car. The HUD is AWESOME!!!!!!

do these after market installs consist of all the original features. (im assuming so ??)

example.


you can adjust its position in this youtube vid. it also displays calls and music. and is this hud controled by the steering wheel controls or the colum controls?

It is exactly the same as the 2011. The car was designed to have the HUD from the start, even the mounting holes are there for it under the dash.

You can move the position vertically. It displays the phone number, music source, song name, XM channel, tach, speed, compass, gear (in automatics), turn signal, turn by turn navigation and probably other stuff I am forgetting.

There is a switch you have to install right behind the keys. It has a pair of buttons for moving the display vertically and a knob that controls the brightness and the page.

All of the parts for the HUD are GM Parts, except for the wiring Harness that Ofer makes and all of the connectors that he uses are GM Parts. So other then the Harness EVERYTHING IS GM PARTS, nothing aftermarket. Also as I and others have said, the car was built to accept HUD from the START, GM just decided not to include it in the 2010's at the last minute. All the info that was put out at the very first said that this would be a Standard Feature on all 2LT, 2LT/RS, 2SS, and 2SS/RS's. The same can also be said about the ABL feature that was suppose to at first go all around the door panel and across the dash and was changed to end up being only along the top edge of the door panel.
