Now I know Corvettes have these and some of the newer Pontiacs have them too... but is there anyway to buy just the unit to place in our 6? Just in case, i'm talking about having your speed, rpm or what ever being displayed on the windshield of the car. Any info would help, thanks.

Here is an email responce that I received from them.

~~~~~~~~~~



We currently plan on having the basic HoloSportÒ HUD ready for general availability around January. It will be priced comparable to conventional gauges at MSRP of $486. We are working on getting distributors up and running. The basic system comes with Tachometer, Vacuum/Boost, Oil or Water Temperature, Oil Pressure, and Volts. Also included is a programmable shift light, a NOS arming and activation light. All of these functions can be viewed at the same time or each separately.



Additional expansion cards w/ senders (included) will be available for $80 to $125 MSRP depending on the function. These include functions such as speed, exhaust gas temp, air/fuel ratio, stereo amplifier temp, and NOS level. There is a limit as to how many of these can be added because the display gets crowded.



The dash unit measures 7"x7"x1-1/4" and we supply all the necessary senders for universal installation. For the individual that wants to mount it flush under the dash we have an under dash mounting system available. This of course requires cutting a hole in the dash.



The image displays directly on the windshield but you need to apply our clear proprietary film (supplied) for the best results. This is to eliminate the distracting double image you often see when something is reflected off of the dash onto the windshield. We condition the optical properties so that you get a nice single crisp image of the display. We also have an optional Tombstone display much like the fighter pilots have in their aircraft. These are available for an additional $127.50 MSRP.



The unit will be available in three-color choices; green, red/orange, and blue. It turns out that due to availability the only color available initially will be the red/orange. We are having the web site updated to reflect this. We have also designed and patented the system to work in daylight. There are two settings because the light required for daylight operation is to bright for nighttime use.



I hope this was informative and thanks for considering the HoloSportÒ product.

You have to buy an upgrade to have it display speed? I would think that would come standard.

That has got to win the award for "worst place to put a gauge display EVER"... talk about right in your line of vision! :eek:
you do realize that aircraft, mainly fighter type, have been using a HUD system forever now? It's not something that gets in the way. you look right through it unless you're trying to focus on it.

Well, personally, I'd prefer it without the speedometer.

Wow that is some price they've got there.....i wonder how hard it would be to just take it out of a junker, though there probably are to many ones around that have it.

Hmm... with no speedometer... "Son did you know how fast you were going?" "Well actually, no..." Hmm.
