The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display projects relevant driving information directly into the driver’s line of vision (not fully visible with polarised sunglasses), allowing him or her to fully concentrate on driving. Depending on the vehicle’s equipment, the display can also show information from the navigation system, the no-overtaking indicator, ECO PRO tips, Check Control messages as well as information and warnings from the driver assistance systems. Frequently used functions such as telephone and entertainment services can also be displayed and operated.
The icons projected onto the windscreen are displayed in a particularly high resolution and full colour, with traffic symbols realistically reproduced. The image's projection appears as if it were 2.3 m in front of the vehicle. This in combination with optimal positioning allow the information to be read quickly, conveniently and with minimal distraction.
The brightness of the projection automatically adjusts to suit the external light conditions, while the height of the projection changes depending on whether it is day or night. The driver can also select which information to display in addition to current speed and the warnings from the driver assistance systems.
