Heads up Display (HUD)

make an heads up display icon so that the user can place it on their dash and the reflection will show up on the windshield.. for night time driving whee it is safer to stare closer to the road versus looking down...other apps use this idea but they dont have the GPS ability..it will set waze apart from all other GPS systems..and make it look extra cool!

        I have a hudly HUD in my vehicle and I use it with Waze and I love it as it is an awesome combination! However the issue I have with it is that they don't have a color scheme that is transparent enough to use with the HUD. Problem is the map's background color is projected by the projector onto the glass, so you cannot see through it. (Making it equivalent to just physically having my phone suspended above my dash making it so I cannot see) I wish they could make it so the map's background color wouldn't be displayed and instead only the roads and road warnings would be displayed. This way I could see through the HUD still. I know this is not impossible as there are other apps which do this.

        One other suggestion. Can you please add a setting that would lock the iPhone in different views? (User definable for either landscape or portrait) It's annoying that every time I move my phone that it flips over to portrait even though I want it to be in land scape. This is important because the HUD mirrors my phone and it is setup for landscape projection so every time I move it and it flips into portrait the image becomes so small I can not read it. May not sound like that big a inconvenience however please trust me when I say it really is!

        That all put aside, thank you for an awesome app in general!

        You cannot use this feature in hot weather, Phone gets heated up when placed on dash when exposed to sunlight directly.. thinking on options of screen mirror thru bluetooth or other means will be practical.

        At least come up with a mount/mirror mechanism that reflects the Waze mirror image on the windshield. The reflected mirror image should be "right" when reflected for the second time off the windshield. The upside/down problem may be resolved by a software change in Waze to reorient top and bottom. Maybe, you can even magnify the image by using a magnifying mirror. There must be a simple solution to this consumer demand.

        Yes please... a HUD mode would be really awesome! Don't you see, this is the future :p

        This would be very cool. I imagine this would take a long time but I think it would be very creative and safer for drivers.

        Couldn't agree more. Let me chime in here: Waze is by far the best smartphone GPS system out there - and getting better all the time. HUDglass is providing a tremendous service by providing the ability to not have to take your eyes away from the road. If these 2 technologies were combined, it would create a dynamic duo and one which many users, including myself, would be more than willing to pay a fee for! It also is easy to implement - just provide a button for reverse imaging to show up on the glass. Perhaps an hour at most for a coding expert to implement.
