The style of mount is a "heads up" style with landscape orientation and designed to be on top of the dash. I'm sorry you don't understand that.

thanks, but i understand what heads up is.. unfortunately this wouldn't fit the description of what that should be... one of the biggest reasons is this is not a transparent display...

so you cant call it a heads up style if its not, in this case its just a dashboard mount. that will scratch the hell out of your car.

I should have checked with the heads up certification authority. Amazon specificallys lists this as "Amazon's Choice" for search term "Huddy". I'll let you guess what the "Hud" in "Huddy" stands for lol. And actually it doesn't scratch the car, I have one because I used to be anal retentive about sticking anything to my dashboard. If you aren't interested then move along, just sayin.

I will have to disagree with your definition of Heads Up Display (HUD) and offer a counterpoint. While I completely understand that many people traditionally think of a HUD as a transparent display, that is not the actual definition, though sites like Wikipedia do specifically say "transparent". However, sites like dictionary.com define it as "an electronic display of data from instruments or other sources projected at eye level so that a driver or pilot sees it without looking away from the road or course." (http://www.dictionary.com/browse/...isplay?s=t)

For example, I am a volunteer fire fighter, and part of the regulator attached to our SCBA has a "HUD" in it with 4 lights corresponding to air level remaining in the cylinder. When you clip the regulator into your face-piece, you can see the air level indicator at the bottom portion of your vision. This is in no way transparent, but is specifically termed a HUD.

So, the argument that this is not a HUD is invalid. But even though I can agree that many people do incorrectly assume that HUD requires a transparent display and would agree with you, @MysteriousKarma, there is no reason for the attitude in lower posts.

just because a regulator also incorrectly calls it a HUD doesnt make it a HUD. your own "Counterpoint" is contradictory to your point. as your alternate definition indicates, that itmust be projected, and in both of these cases again they are not projected or transparent. just becasue you are dropping something in your field of view does not make it a HUD.

improperly describing something for your car as a HUD, when its not, is just jumping on the new trend of ACTUAL HUD devices coming out for vehicles...

but again, when the individual has agreed to post deals to get paid, the point is moot, as the the OP only cares about getting paid and doesnt mind hoodwinking those around him for his own personal gain....

Just to clarify though, my counterpoint can be seen as "contradictory" as you say, but is giving all of the facts as opposed to just showing you definitions that completely agree with my point. The fact is, there are different definitions out there for HUD, some state the word "transparent" while others do not. You are choosing to ignore every definition that does not and only follow the definitions that agree with what you are trying to say, and then concluding that my regulator example is "incorrectly" called a HUD, when it just doesn't match the definition you chose to use.

As to your point about the OP being paid to post, that is a different issue that I am not arguing for or against with this. I am only debating the disagreement with the term HUD. I do not disagree that car companies and third party companies are trying to make what you call "ACTUAL HUD" devices, but I think the term is misleading and what they are making is what people traditionally think of as an actual HUD device, but other devices, despite you not thinking they fit into one of many definitions, can fit into the definition of "actual HUD" as well.

This kind of makes me laugh as it feels almost like a political debate where one can pick whatever facts/definitions they want to back up their case, though "alternative facts" and definitions exist that can be counter to the points being made. It would be nice if all sources defined HUD the exact same way, but sadly they do not.

"Amazon choice" for "Huddy" bc no one else uses the term "huddy." Just like a related item is an Amazon choice for "ipow"...a product marketed by ipow. In short, it's manipulating the "Amazon choice" designation system (which as evidenced by such easy manipulation has no informative value). Buyer beware of businesses using such tactics.

The reference to the qustionable "Amazon choice" designation in this post (first sentence highlighting it even more so) raises other suspicions....

Lastly, a phone, no matter how fastened, is not an HUD.

Context makes it obvious what a Heads Up Style Dashboard Mount is. No, it won't make your phone transparent. It will put it in the line-of-sight of the driver.

Um, actually Huddy is a specific product people searched for, and it's a more expensive heads up display unit. This is simply a cheap alternative to a true heads up display. Google is your friend, even if you already think you know everything.
