How it works?
HUDWAY Cast operates as an external heads-up display mirroring your smartphone screen to the front of your eyes. This way, you can view your navigation app directions and stay focused on the road ahead. You can use any app to guide you, be it Waze, or Google Maps.
How does it connect to my smartphone?
There are two ways you can connect HUDWAY Cast to your smartphone — wirelessly (via Wi-Fi) and wired (using enclosed USB OTG cable).

Can I use it without a smartphone?
No, you can't. HUDWAY Cast has no operation system on board, neither has it anything that can be visualized on its own, without a smartphone.
Thus, it either works as an external screen for your smartphone (when used with HUDWAY Cast app), or mirrors your phone screen contents as is (when any other app is used).
Will it work in my car?
HUDWAY Cast needs to be mounted on the dash in front of driver’s eyes otherwise the driver will be unable to see the projection.
Provided that there’s enough space on the dash and there is a cigarette lighter receptacle available to plug in the power cable, the device will work in your vehicle.

Among the vehicles known to us where the device will not fit are Toyota Prius C, BMW Z3, and the like vehicles with very low-sloped windscreen.
How is it powered? Does it have battery?
HUDWAY Cast has no battery and powers from a cigarette lighter receptacle in your vehicle. The end of the cable that plugs in the receptacle has an adaptor equipped with two USB ports, so that you can power HUDWAY Cast and charge two smartphones at the same time. This cable is a default option and is enclosed in every device box.
Can I use my own cable to power the device?
Even though the power port in HUDWAY Cast looks like standard USB 3.0, you will not be able to power the device using a regular USB 3.0 cable.
The thing is that the power port in HUDWAY Cast uses a custom pinout — and while you can plug in your regular USB 3.0 cable, the device will not power on: HUDWAY Cast needs 12V to operate, and standard USB cables will only supply 5V.
We recommend that you only use the cables that are supplied with the device, otherwise if any damage to the device occurs as a result of using a non-original cable, this will not be covered by warranty.
