    Question Car Heads Up Display?

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anybody here knows if there are HUD
    (Heads Up Display) display-kits available to connect
    to your car pc. It would be great for displaying some
    extra information on your windshield

    Thanks,

    - JW

    Look up HUD! Many have talked about it. Don't know of many or any succeeding.

    From what I have read in the past you need to have a special windshield to reflect the image properly. At least that's the case with my car.

    I've been thinking about this alot lately. I don't want to do anything with mirrors, so I've been searching for a way to reverse the characters on an LCD. If anybody knows anything...

    Couldn't you use a graphical LCD and reverse it in the software? You'd have to draw it all yoruself I guess.
