The full-colour BMW Head-up Display projects driving information on to a screen directly in the driver’s line of sight, making it much easier to view. Depending on the car's equipment, this can include route and entertainment information, as well as warnings from the driver assistance systems.
The symbols, projected onto a retractable panel above the main dials, are depicted in full colour so the traffic signs look realistic. The panel's slightly tinted colour increases the contrast.
The projection's brightness automatically adjusts to outside light conditions, and can be manually set to reflect individual preferences. The day and night displays also feature different designs. The driver can select which additional information to display along with the current speed and driver assistance warnings.
