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 support@hudway.co. They will also instruct you on how to purchase the cable should you be willing to do so.
