    Default HUD display option?

    Has anybody thought of mounting a remote display in the top of the dash pointing UP (not towards the driver) so that it refelects in the windshield? This would create a sort of heads-up-display (HUD).

    I have the V1 mounted in the headliner of my 99 540i together with a Stealth One display and it just couldn't get any sweeter than that! But I am trying to come up with a V1 mounting and remote display solution for my new toy- a 2000 Boxster. (Hence my last post)

    It wouldn't have enough power, etc you wouldn't be able to see a thing.

    Some HUD cars like Nissan 240SX had a special "tintpanel" on the windscreen that helped with visibility, it also made the windshield cost $1000 to replace instead of $250 :roll:

    I wonder...

    Everything seems to reflect onto the windshield: the speakers, and that little IR alarm nub (or whatever it is). So some bright red LEDs should show up. I'll try to do a test one time and see. If anything worthwhile turns up i'll post a follow-up.
