HUDWAY Drive is an excellent way to add this useful tech [HUD] to your vehicle. It works and well at that, and it's admittedly fun to use.

Distracted driving is a serious problem, and if a HUD makes me less distracted while driving, I'm sure it would work well for you and others.

Why other drivers have purchased it:

Have it all in one place
Unlike plenty of aftermarket HUDs that show your car data or speed only, HUDWAY Drive can pull information from your phone, car, and cameras.

This way, you don't need multiple devices to keep track of all the things that matter to you while driving.
Customize what to see
Most aftermarket HUDs go with limited functionality and preset views.

With HUDWAY Drive, you can fine-tune what to see on the HUD — depending on what you need on any given trip.
Use it 24/7
Powerful projector + specially designed lens = perfect projection visibility even when you're driving in the sun —and when you're wearing polarized glasses.

And you needn't apply any film to your windshield.
Update it. Over the air.
We add new things to the app and device — and we make sure you have no trouble getting them.

Updating your device is a matter of one tap and a few minutes wait. Everything's automated.
It's built on drivers' feedback and our expertise
We've been making HUDs since 2013, and that's become our core competence.

We've interviewed hundreds drivers to understand what they need — and built the product on this feedback.

I am following up on my use of HUDWAY Drive. I have finally had a chance to install and use it for a couple of weeks. It does work awesome! I love the navigation and the OBD connection is great. The only issue I have had deals with the mounting of the Drive.

First, more detailed instructions would be very helpful!

Second, my dash slopes up towards the steering wheel. I could not find a placement of the mount where I didn't lose part of the screen view due to the angle of the slope. An include optional wedge for the mount would be helpful!

Just some thoughts! Overall VERY pleased with the product!

I've seen reviews where people say that the brightness is not enough during daytime compared to factory installed HUD. This could be right compared to some ultra-bright HUDs but the brightness of the HUDWAY Drive is perfect during daytime. Also I really like that the lens is a bit yellowish – usually the yellow color is easier on the eyes. Even my dioptric glasses have a "driver" tint which is yellow. Thus this tint would soften any blue light coming from the HUDWAY Drive's display and then night driving would be easier on the eye.

The HUD doesn't obstruct my vision – I was thinking it would, but it doesn't, which is truly great.

I just wanted to leave some feedback on my HUDWAY Drive now that I have spent about a month with it. Let me first say I think this is a fantastic 3rd party HUD. It is super easy to use. The ability to customize is great. Really crisp, bright display. I think the only change I would make is to add the ability to rotate it slightly in the base. This would account for slightly different seating positions, or a slightly off mounting allowing the image to always be centered on the screen regardless of your sight line. I really do enjoy this device, and being able to see everything pop up on the screen is a real godsend while driving. Great job by the entire team there. Thanks!

I've just wanted to share my feedback:

Pros:

1. Display is clear day and night and looks really nice
2. From HW perspective I'm very satisfied
3. Generally well though and good quality device
4. OBD is must-have option


Cons:

1. Reflective glass vibrates occasionally
2. Adaptive brightness could be improved a bit – need less brightness at night and more brightness during the day

Hi there,

I eventually got around to fitting my two HUDWAY Drives to my two cars.

I'm really pleased – you have solved the problems I found with the last model. I now put my phone in the charger, switch on the ignition and almost immediately the HUDWAY Drive connects to my iPhone (XS Max) and works – just like that.

I have not connected the audio cable, but the my phone connects to my stereos (the two cars are a 2016 Škoda Superb and a 2006 Audi A4 2.0Tdi Convertible with an aftermarket Pioneer stereo) and I therefore get turn commands through the stereo, overriding the music playing from the phone. Really pleased.

Slight niggle – one. My Škoda is hardwired from a power take off from the back of the cigar lighter (same on the Audi). On the Audi, this power supply is a switched supply – on the Škoda it is always live. This means I have to remember to disconnect the HUDWAY when I switch off the ignition in the Škoda, to avoid the battery draining. If the HUDWAY software (or firmware) could automatically power the unit down if it's in the same place for more than say – 10 minutes – and then reactivate when the phone detected movement, it would solve this problem. What are your thoughts?

Second problem. I have two separate HUDWAY devices, one on each car. I use both of these cars regularly. At present, it appears that I have to go into the app and disconnect from one before getting into the other car. It would be a lot easier if you were able to get the app to pair with and look for more than one unit – and connect to it when it finds it.

This doesn't take anything away from your team that has produced a great device – I have been one of your sponsors from the start and I'm now seeing the fruits of your continual drive to perfect this system. This is exactly the sort of Kickstarter/Indiegogo project I love to support – and I really appreciate the efforts you have made (and continue to make).

The unit works fantastic! It is an invaluable tool, especially when travelling long distances. I find it a little difficult to set it up initially. This is, find the appropriate place for the unit, including adjusting the size of the projected screen. On the other hand, once you have it installed, it works like a charm. As I said before, I find it especially useful on longer trips. It helps a lot. I was able to integrate it with my car, so I can also use the touch screen to control the phone. When I plug the unit to the car via USB, the car reports that it has found a device, but I am not able to connect or to control it. It does not matter, when I connect the phone I get CarPlay control over the phone and the information on the HUD, which is perfectly fine.

I just received my HUDWAY Drive and it's a very nice device, thank you.

I have an OBD-II reader that lets me view my vehicle speed per the respective sensors. I've compared it with the speed detection devices used by law enforcement and have found the OBD-II estimate very accurate. My vehicle's speedometer reads about 5 MPH faster than I'm actually traveling and GPS estimates are often 3-5 MPH slower than I'm actually traveling. I only trust the OBD-II sensor data since it is reading directly from my vehicle with wheel diameter taken into account. GPS estimates are only okay when you don't have a way to obtain more accurate readings. I'd likely get a speeding ticket if I relied on GPS estimates.

FAQ

Will it fit in and work in my car?
It will work in your car, if you have a cigarette lighter outlet to power HUDWAY Drive.

But it is important to make sure it will fit in.

It will for the vast majority of vehicles, but a few models have too slanted a windshield for HUDWAY Drive to fit in with its lens opened at its full 90°.

We suggest that you try out the paper device mockup in your car first. Download it, print, cut out, and take to your car.

Here are the cars where we've tried out HUDWAY Drive and it would not fit in:

  • Audi A3 / S3 (2013-2020)
  • BMW 3 Series (2005-2011 and 2011-2019)
  • BMW 4 Series (2020-2022)
  • Chevrolet Camaro (2010-2015 and 2016-present)
  • Honda Civic (2005-2012 and 2011-2017)
  • Honda CR-V (2017-present)
  • Honda Insight (2010-2014)
  • Honda Ridgeline (2006-2014)
  • Jeep Wrangler (2018-present)
  • Lexus LX (1998-2007)
  • Mercedes-Benz G-Class (all generations)
  • Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class (2011-2020)
  • Mitsubishi Lancer (2008-2017) / Galant Fortis in JP, Proton Inspira in MY
  • Renault Megane (2009-2017)
  • Fiat 124 Spider (2017-present)
  • Toyota Corolla (2002-2008 and 2007-2013)

  • Toyota Previa (2000-2005 and 2006-2019) / Tarago in AU, Estima Aeras in JP
  • Volkswagen Passat (2014-present)
What can I see on the HUD?
  • Navigation*
  • Who's calling
  • Track name and artist (if the music is played in Apple Music or Google Music app).
  • Notifications from your calendar, GMail и Apple Mail apps, and 11 messengers.
  • Your car's OBD-II data**

Alternatively, you can have the app mirror your phone screen to the HUD. This way, you can see Waze or Google Maps fullscreen. However, since your screen is mirrored 1:1 to the HUD, all incoming calls and notifications will appear on the HUD in the same way they appear on your phone screen.


*By default, your HUDWAY Drive will use Bluetoooth to transmit arrow-style directions from HUDWAY Drive app on the HUD. Widgets and notifications also use Bluetooth.

**There a few widgets in the app that become available when you plug the enclosed OBD-II scanner to your car OBD-II port and connect it to HUDWAY Drive. You can use your own Bluetooth scanner if you like, just make sure it's an ELM327-based one.
Will it work without a smartphone?
Your HUDWAY Drive device will not work without your smartphone and HUDWAY Drive app.

You'll need the app to find HUDWAY Drive and connect to it, as well as to set up what to display on the HUD — and for the navigatoon to work.

The Drive has no GPS modules, which is why it's the HUDWAY Drive app monitoring your location using your powerful phone electronics. And it's the app that listens to (after you've allowed it) which push notifications are coming and who's calling you — and then sends this data to the Drive.

Also, it's the app that knows when the scanner is connected to unlock OBD-related widgets (for example, RPM, fuel level, or speed).
Where do you ship from? Will I need to pay customs duties?
To US customers we ship from a US warehouse (Alabama). US customers don't pay customs duties.

To the rest of the world we ship from a EU warehouse (Latvia). EU customers don't pay customs duties. All other customers customers may be subject to import duties.

We recommend that you check with your customs what duties you will have to pay, and whether this is agreeable to you.

Please note that we do not mark orders as gifts or samples, nor do we reimburse any duties and fees you may have to pay to get the device.
Is my payment information secure?
Yes.

On our online store, we're using Stripe and PayPal to process payments. Both are globally used as secure and reliable payment processing systems.
What is the warranty & refund policy for the device?
We do understand that it's stressful to trust pre-orders and waiting is tiresome, therefore you can opt for a refund. Please contact our support team at support@hudway.co to learn the details. That said, each pre-order contributes to the whole production and development process and directly affects the delivery date.

We warrant that the HUDWAY Drive will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for one year from the date of delivery.

We hope you understand that we do not warrant against:

  • Normal wear and tear or other cosmetic damage (say, scratches and the like)
  • Damage caused by accident, abuse, acts of nature, or other external causes (say, if it's crashed after you drop it)
  • Damage caused by modifications or alterations of the device without prior written permission by HUDWAY, including without limitation modifications or alterations by unauthorized service providers (say, if you decide to repair it yourself or ask your friend to do it)
  • Damage caused by connections to cables not supplied by HUDWAY (this rarely happens)
  • Damage caused by a vehicle and/or mobile device to which the device is connected (this happens almost never).
