Head Up Display (HUD) mode

Postby Kiran7777 » Fri Jun 17, 2016 4:31 am

Can you please add Head Up Display mode in the Waze app please? HUD apps currently available in the App Store are patchy and costly and unpolished. It would be great to have HUD mode available in the Waze app as it is safer to use maps with HUD mode while driving as you don't have to look away from the road to see the navigation instructions. People will have less distraction if they use HUD mode and thus have safer driving.

I found that people have been requesting for HUD mode since 2013 and it has not been applied into Waze maps yet. This feature could save lives, eliminate one of the causes of distracted driving. I hope Waze Team at least this year puts the HUD mode into Waze.

It's so disappointing that all the widely used map apps: Waze maps, Google maps, Apple maps do not have HUD mode. :cry:

I think it would shorten the time for people who focus way too much on the phone instead of whatever is going on on the road.
Thank you developers :D


HUD holders and dashboard pads are affordable and easily available on popular online stores these days.

Navdy is $499. Whereas HUD holders ($13) and dashboard pads ($5) are more affordable. HUD holder + Waze with HUD mode = awesome affordable combination!

I'd like to see a mirror mode as well. It would make it easier for me to use waze. I guess it will have to wait until Google buys or builds a mirror!

Well, can I disagree with you ?
I drive a Toyota Prius and I've been, one night leaving my Samsung near the windshield...
I foud the image absolutly readable except it has a reversed left/right image !
If I had the capability to mirror and reverse the image I should feel to be a jet pilot (!!!)

If you don't believe me I can take a picture ! The contrast and light are just perfectly adjustable and confortable.

Please consider there are other feeling than your !

I apologise I am french and my english is poor.
