How is HUDWAY Cast powered?

HUDWAY Cast has no battery and therefore should be connected to a 12V power outlet to operate.

Enclosed in the box there is a cigarette lighter to USB 3.1 Micro-B cable 2.4 m (7 ft 10 in) long. There are two USB ports in the socket adaptor piece, which allows for simultaneous charging of two smartphones. The electronic specs are the following:

Input: DC12V
Output: DC5V — 4.8A.


Alternatively, HUDWAY Cast can be powered from a car OBD-II port (where it's not prohibited by the car manufacturer)*. The length is the same —2.4 m (7 ft 10 in). This type of connection also allows for getting the car data (where it's allowed by the car manufacturer) — speed and RPM — and bringing it to the heads-up display.

Please note that the OBD-II port may not work in all of the vehicle models. It will not work in hybrid vehicles, and a range of Lexus models.

Because of that, we are selling these OBD-II cables per request, and recommend that you first check compatibility with your vehicle with our support team at They will also instruct you on how to purchase the cable should you be willing to do so.
