Smartphone use during driving is one of the biggest causes of death worldwide. According to a report by CDC, 8 people are killed daily on the in the US due to smartphone distractions while driving. Heads-Up Display (HUD) is the solution to the smartphone distractions during driving. Heads-Up display technology projects your smartphone screen to a glass or a screen, killing the need to look at your phone screen for directions, reading text messages and getting calls. There are several Heads-Up displays in the market, but the best one is HUDWAY Glass.
HUDWAY glass gets easily attached to your car’s dashboard. The device is pretty simple to use. HUDWAY Glass is basically a small stand that gets attached to your dashboard. The stand has a sticky back that gets stuck with the dashboard. After fixing the stand, you can put your smartphone inside a special case that has a glass. Your smartphone screen will be project on this glass. When you will have your smartphone on the glass, you won’t need to look at your screen by taking eyes off the road. Watch this video on how to setup HUDWAY glass in your car.
HUDWAY glass solves a problem that wasn’t even addressed by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. When you are looking at your screen while driving, that means you are in big trouble, no matter how advanced smartphone or aesthetic app you are using. HUDWAY glass aptly solves the problem.
HUDWAY works with various apps if you want to have a nice navigation. The company recommends using Navmii GPS app. But I’d suggest sticking to Google Maps. No matter what app you use for navigation, it’ll be projected on the HUDWAY glass. But the problem is screen inversion. Apps like Navmii has a special mode called “HUD” mode. When you tap the screen and turn on the HUD mode, the display will become suitable for putting in the glass case.
After setting up your phone and starting navigation, just put the phone in the cradle. You’ll now be able to see your phone display on the front glass.
You can change the direction of the glass and set it up according to your choice.
HUDWAY Glass concept became so popular that the product quickly got escalated from $600,000 funding on Kickstarter and over a million users signed up to use it. HUDWAY glass is an affordable Heads-Up display device. The cost on Amazon is $50. The device comes with two stands (round and flat).
