    Any good HUD's? heads up displays

    Its my first post over here to the W club, I post on the I-club but just found out what was wrong with my acct here and fixed it....now I can post!!

    Anyway, I wanna get a HUD, just speed /tach, nothing fancy, just cause I like those bells and whistles. Noticed there wernt too many posts on this topic.


    Any good ones ($200 or less?)

    hot tips when it comes to vehicle HUDs

    1. you get what you pay for.
    2. a HUD in an F/A-18 costs around $60K
    3. there is a reason for #2 - good optics (ie daylight readable and infinity focus) are expensive.

    Well, $200 might be on the cheap side, but if someone makes it for our cars it'll be less than $60k!

    Several cars on the market have them. I drove a rented Nissan 240SX with a HUD speedometer way back in '90. That was like a $15k car back then, and electronics get cheaper over the years. The speedo was a total waste of a cool technology. Tach would've been useful. Then again, those new Caddies with the HUD night vision are pretty freakin' cool too!

    Here is a sight that has two different guages. They are both a bit over $200.

    I like the funtionality of that speed/tach, instead of building an enclosure, couldn't it be dropped into the dash like on the Pontiac GTP? I would definitely want that thing to be stealth. It screams steal me
