What's HUD mode and how to enable it?

HUD mode, or heads-up display mode, is a special mode in HUDWAY Go app which allows using a smartphone as a heads-up display.

This feature is handy when you're driving in low visibility conditions (heavy rain, fog, snow, twilight, or darkness) and would rather have navigation info displayed in your line of sight.

Please note that due to the windshield having doulble surface, the reflection may get slightly doubled. If you like using HUDWAY Go, and want a crisp reflection, check out our HUDWAY Glass vehicle accessory:
