How this technology works
Head-up displays project visual information and warnings into a driver's forward line of sight. They can display information like forward collision warnings, vehicle speed, and route help.
You can turn the displays on and off when you're driving. You can usually change the information in the display in the vehicle settings and you can adjust the brightness and position of the head-up display image.
