Heat for the price. Compared to John Lewis it's £100 cheaper. That said though, reviews on youtube dont seem to be amazing though.

I was hoping it would use the native navigation apps on the phone (google maps, whatever iOS have) but it's another Garmin app that needs to run - good price, but not sure I need another piece of tech in the car #mustresist

Voted hot. Sweet reviews but the fact that you can't use predownloaded maps may not work well for some with limited data plans.

Ordered , picked up a cheap Navigon license a while ago so hopefully compatible.

I tried this some time ago. Whilst the display is rather cool and works surprisingly well in daylight and night, the whole idea is a bit meh. You still need your phone for the audio part of navigation and the unit only displays basic navigation details. So if you prefer a more 3D map, this won't cut it. To me it was just an extra set of wires and another uneccesery gadget that you had to set up each time you got into the car.

I knew I didn't need thus. Thanks

The Garmin app for iOS is a free download from the Apple Store.

What Garmin app?

There is free Garmin HUD app for IOS, Android and Windows phone which includes European maps resident on phone and a once/year update. I have map gps in car but this HUD display in front of my eyes makes driving much safer. Great idea, hope car mnufacturers fit HUD as standad on future new cars. Was very suprised when my new Prius no longer had GPS info on it's HUD unlike my previous one. Very backward step for Toyota.

Ordered one off their email.... was gonna buy 5 but didn't want to spoil it for anyone else £170 on argos ebay!

LOL one left in Scunthorpe. Shame

Only available in a store in Scunthorpe and none online - Bit far from South Wales !

​I was surprised to find a HUD on a Toyota, very good car though.

Only 1 left, 203.6 Miles away. That's bit too far.

What is the point of a HUD when you need to look down to the dashboard to see the display?

Can I use this in my Apache helicopter?

Some left in Walsall if this helps.....

Eh?

Managed to get the last one from Walsall. Just tested it out and its a bit crap to be honest.

The same way you passed your reading test.

This HUD is positioned down on the dash and projects the image on to the screen down by the dash - not up into the line of sight.

So what's the point of a HUD when you need to look down to the dash to see the display?

Do you also assume a HUD display would be in the driver's line of vision? After all, its not a Head Down Display is it o_O

Right, you were being a pendant.

Oh, is it pedantic to want a Head Up Display to be a Head Up Display, and not a Somewhere Down By The Bottom Of The Windscreen Display?

If you're going to continue with the daft pedantic answers: The HUD works absolutely fine for those of us that are fairly short and look out from the very bottom of the windshield. So technically this should be a Head Up Display For Those Of Us That Are Five Feet Tall.
Happy now?

​No I'm not Happy, but you must be either Grumpy or Sleepy because topass above is certainly Dopey.
