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!

        For iPhone users who are willing to jailbreak their phones, I have a simple and affordable solution to the need for HUD while using Waze. Just jailbreak your iPhone (up to IOS 9.3.3) and install an apt from Cydia called "HUD mode" and voila, you can reverse (mirror mode) your IOS apps, including Waze. In this way, the cheapest solution is to put a sticky rubber pad on top of the dashboard to place your iPhone and reflect the screen to the windscreen (windshield if you prefer) and you can read Waze screen in the correct orientation. For even clearer view during morning/afternoon drives, buy a cheap opaque HUD film for the windscreen to help you see the image clearer. But for the ultimate view, order an HUD Mobile Navigation Bracket for around $15, and you're set to enjoy the best Waze experience ever, for the price.

        HUD retailers that use reflective glass are advertising other services (BECAUSE Waze does not offer this!) I would really like for Waze to get on board with this. And apparently with 3044 votes, I'm not the only one.

        Heads up display mode option would make your waze app just awesome and much safer to use in a vehicle. HUD will set up to reflect off the front glass and you would not have to take your eyes off the road. Your guidance app is already one of the best out there, this will put it over the top.

        Head Up Display and Voice Command would make WAZE as the best navigation app ever. so drivers can keep focus on road without distracting by tapping buttons etc.
