iScout HUD car — iSCOUT is a Head-Up Display (HUD) that projects all the information required for driving such as car speed, fuel level, GPS navigation as a floating virtual image in front of the vehicle. It syncs to your smartphone and displays incoming calls, messages, reminders, social media content and other notifications along with several other features such as blind-spot view and an integrated dashcam.
“As iScout can link up with the vehicle’s ODB plug, you can also see information like fuel levels, maintenance issues and speed. If you’re running out of gas, for instance, it can give you a warning and guide you to the nearest service station. The premium model has blind spot cameras that automatically activate when you use your turn signals, helping keep your eyes on the road. Speaking of cameras, the device has a forward looking dashcam, in case any of any accidents”
