Head-Up Display (HUD)

WARNING
If the HUD image is too bright or too high in your field of view, it may take you more time to see things you need to see when it is dark outside. Be sure to keep the HUD image dim and placed low in your field of view.

For vehicles with the Head-Up Display (HUD), some information concerning the operation of the vehicle is projected onto the windshield. This includes the speedometer reading, rpm reading, transmission position, outside air temperature, the manual mode gear range, and a brief display of the current radio station, including XM information or CD track. It will also display turn-by-turn navigation information if the vehicle has a navigation radio. The images are projected by the HUD lens located on the driver side of the instrument panel.

The HUD information can be displayed in one of three languages, English, French, or Spanish.

The speedometer reading and other numerical values can be displayed in either English or metric units.

The language selection and the units of measurement are changed through the trip computer in the Driver Information Center (DIC).

See Vehicle Personalization (With DIC Buttons) on page 5‑46.

The HUD information appears as an image focused out toward the front of the vehicle.

When the ignition key is turned to ON/RUN, the HUD will display an introductory message for a short time, until the HUD is ready.

The following indicator lights come on the instrument panel when activated and also appear on the HUD:
• Turn Signal Indicators
• High-Beam Indicator Symbol

The HUD temporarily displays CHECK GAGES and ICE POSSIBLE when these messages are on the DIC trip computer.

The HUD also displays the following messages on vehicles with these systems, when they are active:
• TRACTION CONTROL ACTIVE
• STABILITRAK ACTIVE

Notice: If you try to use the HUD image as a parking aid, you may misjudge the distance and damage your vehicle. Do not use the HUD image as a parking aid.

When the HUD is on, the speedometer reading is continually displayed. The current radio station or CD track number will display for a short period of time after the radio or CD track status changes.

This happens whenever radio information is changed. The speedometer size is reduced when radio, CD information, warnings, or turn-by-turn navigation information are displayed on the HUD.

The HUD control is located to the right of the steering wheel.

All formats will show the turn-by-turn navigation information and provide details about the next driving maneuver to be made. When you near your destination, the HUD will display a distance bar that will fill in the closer you get to your destination. All navigation information is provided to the HUD by the navigation radio, if the vehicle has one.

The HUD image displayed on the windshield will automatically dim and brighten to compensate for outside lighting.

The HUD image can temporarily light up depending on the angle and position of the sunlight on the HUD display. This is normal and will change when the angle of the sunlight on the HUD display changes.

Polarized sunglasses could make the HUD image harder to see.
