    Heads up display with lcd?

    I am currently working on a project that would try and have a heads up display that has gps. The idea is to view the navigational map on the windshield instead of looking away from the road. I have the gps hooked up and has a vga output, the problem is getting it to view. I was thinking of using a 10.4in lcd screen and have the reflection show up on the windshield. I understand that it will be a mirror image but would the idea work? Ive read that it may not be bright enough but I would like to hear any ideas on how to make it work. A logical idea would be to use a projector, but i dont know how it would fit in a dash, an be affordable. Let me know if anyone has an idea.
