I need a Projector that will display the information's like Navigation's and map, Speed, Fuel limit etc on Windscreen.

Is there any such product is available for cars with minimal customization or installations?

Or any DIY Material is available here in this forum?.

Re: Heads Up Display - Windscreen Projection.

I am also a great fan of HUD Display

Most of the android phones are having heads up display mode, for functions like speed, mielage, max speed recorded

I will try posting screen shots of it


However i have also been searching for phones which display maps on the screen, without any leads till now

I think you misunderstood what I have asked...!! I have asked for a instrument which projects the speed, Map & navigation, Fuel quantity on the mirror (windscreen mirror) and not on the mobile screen mounted on the stand sticked to windscreen of the car.

Like the instrument will get outputs from androip app from a mobile and pass on to the projector which will projects the display in the mirror. [:)][;)]

I certainly understand your requirements [:)], i saw the your pic too.

The Android App (Which im talking about) makes the the mobile screen as a mirror image which you will have to position under the wind screen in such a way that it reflects on to the windsheild and available to your driving-level view

I am just waiting for the pic to be sent by my friend, will upload for better clarity

Some pics from Google until then, hope it helps !

Re: Heads Up Display - Windscreen Projection.

Its just a reflection on the screen. There is no 'Projection' as such.
The App gets the Speed via GPS and a mirrored image is reflected back on the screen.

You just have to place your phone on the dash.

IMO its more distracting than useful. I had tried it before and its only fun for a few minutes.

I agree the statements above and also the display is also reverse since it is a reflection from the phone screen. if the navigation is shows right side, the reflection shows left side. that will be a problem.

The other fact is the display will not be that much perfect in the day time...

I need a "projection" not "mirroring image" or "Reflections".


the Ulysse speedometer is good for heads up display.. and am going to buy that.

1. How is the performance.
2. How useful or attractive will it be
3. Approx. cost
4. Any specific brand
5. Best cost effective place to buy

As I am interested for getting them for my CIAZ.[:)]

Thanks in advance
