To keep roads safer, Pioneer has refreshed their HUDs (heads-up displays). Rather than fumbling around with smartphones or looking away at a navigation system, Pioneer is placing a clear piece of plastic just above the windshield. The HUD’s main focus is on the GPS; however, more information like speed and time can overlap so the driver won’t have to look away from the road.
A major drawback of Pioneer’s HUDs is positioning. If the driver is very tall or very short, they may have to adjust the HUD often. Clearly that’s the opposite of what Pioneer wants to do. While the ND-HUD10 will be available in Europe (600 Euro) and Japan (60,000 Yen), the ND-HUD2 will only be released in Japan for 100,000 Yen. For a look at Pioneer’s new lineup, hit the break.
