Your Dashcam Compilations?

Andrew, what is that on your dash? Is it a phone with a head-up display? Looks good?

Hi @Spacewagon52,

That's a standalone HUD, plugs into the OBD port and reads from the ECU, programmable & trimmable for speed and RPM (the analogue speedo lies somewhat enthusiastically! Overreads by 8 or 9%) The orange 4.6 at the top is Litres/Hour but can display system voltage or odometer and 86 is the water temperature in degrees with a bargraph below.

My phone lives on a sticky mount just visible in the centre running Waze for navigation.

The standard speedo is not particularly well marked, only 20, 40, 60, 80 etc. shown and with the proliferation of speed cameras I need accurate speed clearly.

The HUD needs a few days fiddling to get everything how you like it and a reasonable position on the  provided self cling mat, then fit the supplied reflective film on the inside of the screen. It's a bit bright at night on unlit roads and driving into a low sun (in the UK haha) can wash it out a bit. I also shortened the nice flat cable it comes with and added a custom right angle connector as the socket on the HUD is on the left and also swapped the OBD plug casing though 180 degrees to suit a RHD car.

The seller on eBay that it came from doesn't list that exact model now, but a search for HUD in vehicle parts shows loads of different varieties, although This one appears to be the same as mine and is around the same price.

Andrew

P.S. If you get one I've kept a note of my customisation/trimming values if you should want them......

Sorry chap, I believe that's a SsangYong Tivoli, but the effect is much the same! 

Haha @gdh300 I bow to your superior knowledge! A quick Google of logos proves you correct, I do Dacia Dustbins a disservice! It will henceforth be known as a SsangYong Tw@toli!
