What is HUDWAY Drive?
HUDWAY Drive is a portable heads-up display for everyday commute:
- Keeps you connected in a less distracting way: speed, navigation, calls, notifications, or music info on a translucent screen right in front of you.
- Works with any navigation app by screen mirroring: Google, Waze, or any other maps you want to use behind the wheel.
- One-time quick setup: stick the device to the dashboard and pair it with your smartphone via bluetooth. Next time everything will connect automatically as your wireless headphones.
- Designed to merge with your dash: flexible mount allows to install the Drive in most cars.
When the Drive is connected to an OBD-II scanner, it gets vehicle data and shows it on the screen as widgets, such as: RPM, voltage, fuel level, and so on.
Designed to fit most vehicles
HUDWAY Drive features a versatile design that allows you to fit it on almost any vehicle's dashboard. However, there are exceptions. Some models have a windshield that is too slanted for HUDWAY Drive to fit in with its lens open at the full 90°.
We suggest that you try out the paper device mockup in your car first. Download it, print, cut out, and take to your car.

Does it block my view?
HUDWAY Drive doesn't block the view in front of a driver since it's located a bit below the line of sight and its lens is translucent (almost transparent). The image from the app you stream is like floating on the line of view very comfortably.
H: 4 in (10 cm), W: 6.3 in (16 cm), D: 7.3 in (18.5 cm)
For better understanding, visit our Help Center article. You can refer to the pictures there and print a cut-out template to make sure it fits the dash. Please note, that we also have a list of incompatible cars due to the configuration of the dash and windshield angle.
How is it connected to a smartphone?
The main interaction way with your smartphone is BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy). It works with our proprieatry HUDWAY Drive app only. Alternatively, you can opt for a mirroring mode via WiFi and see your phone screen as is. More details here.

It's perfect clear and visibility. Love it!
Installation is not too hard but I will suggest to add some trim available in the base/Hudway, because in some car (like my Suzuki S-cross) the middle point of wheel to dashboard is not level (a little tilt), and it is really hard to done absolute straight sight line in single shot. Just a little trim availability will make it perfect. Also I would like to have a official dust-proof cloth cover if possible.
It was a little tricky to figure out how to remove the Hudway device from the included base. It took my a few tries before I figured out how to pull and twist it off which I don't remember being superclear in the instructions. The projection is really good, a little "oil spill" effects is visible in the top and sides of the screen but that isn't anything that is really bothersome. I had my brother in law try it out and he said he really likes it (he is driving a Honda accord with built in HUD but he liked your solution).
I think it works like a charm! :)
I don't know, it this applies to others as well, but I would have preferred to have the double sided tape from the mounting hardware as a separate and maybe even a spare. Otherwise, it all worked perfectly!
I am following up on my use of HUDWAY Drive. I have finally had a chance to install and use it for a couple of weeks. It does work awesome! I love the navigation and the OBD connection is great. The only issue I have had deals with the mounting of the Drive. First, more detailed instructions would be very helpful! Second, my dash slopes up towards the steering wheel. I could not find a placement of the mount where I didn't lose part of the screen view due to the angle of the slope. An include optional wedge for the mount would be helpful! Just some thoughts! Overall VERY pleased with the product!
After a week of use Ive finally settled on how I feel about the whole hudway set up. Its definitely something I would get if I had to get a different car. the OBD2 is the only sore spot for the device as it does not really work as of writing this. that being said everything else works great. I recommend using the camera systems along with the main hud unit for a better experience.
Easy install. Require new Hudway Drive App. Mirroring functionality from iPhone 12 does not work.
Hudway Drive review
Hi, everyone, I received my Hudway Drive four weeks ago, so I had enough time to test it out extensively. First of all: The waiting time was absolutely worth it! Installation: The product is delivered in a very high quality packaging. The instructions are easy to understand and the installation was therefore very easy. Commissioning: After the installation, the device was connected and the associated app was downloaded. The detection of the hardware and the initial setup went smoothly. Only the supplied OBD2 adapter stopped working after a short time. I replaced it with another model, and since then the OBD2 adapter has mostly been recognized without any problems. (Every now and then there seem to be connection problems after a long period of standstill. If you decouple the Hudway-Drive via Bluetoorh and reconnect it, the OBD2 adapter is usually recognized immediately.) Use: In the last few weeks I have experienced driving much more relaxed, focusing on the HUD is much easier than on the speedometer. The brightness is sufficient during the day, but a bit too bright at night. An automatic dimming function would be desirable here so that you do not always have to readjust the brightness in the app. The speed, which is read out via the OBD2 connector, is sufficiently accurate and is also updated and transferred quickly enough, occasionally there are very slight delays. When using the smartphone connected via bluetooth, I did not notice a big difference in terms of the transmission of the speed to the HUD, the delay is hardly noticeable. As a bonus when coupling with an OBD2 adapter, the engine speed and other vehicle data can be displayed. The date and outside temperature are always displayed as small widgets. I also really like the option of removing the device to protect against theft. All in all, I can only recommend the device. The speed that is constantly in view helps you to concentrate more on the traffic and still have the permitted maximum speed present. (For this purpose I have set the warning to 50km / h so that the speed display is then shown in red which gives already an indication in the peripheral field of view)
Like I have another car
Like I said: I am driving another car now! The image is clear, even in the sunlight. It is removable, so it is a good thing. For example, it is cheap to move it from a car to another just with few dollars. The package is nice, the power plug is with double outputs and small. Thank you for OBD II interface! A motorized glass will be great. Mount it with care, align with eye direction, and you will see a correct image. A direct link between OBD interface and device would be nice, without using smartphone (I prefer that). Specially for the link with the camera, I bought this device. It is the great feature! The reverse camera and the night vision camera, in special. Only... the night vision camera it looks to be too expensive... Attention: If you ever used silicons for polishing the dash board, the double faced adhesive or any duct tape, will NEVER stay in place! So, 2-3 screws will not ruin the dash board. Few holes in the mount will be helpful for future models. So far, so good. And sorry for my rusty English. :)
