The head-up display shows warnings and information relating to speed, cruise control functions, navigation, etc. in the driver's field of vision. Road Sign Information and incoming phone calls can also be shown in the head up display.
The driver's ability to see the information in the head-up display is impaired by the following
- use of polarising sunglasses
- a driving position which means that the driver is not sitting centred in the seat
- objects on the display unit's cover glass
- unfavourable light conditions.
A number of symbols can be shown temporarily in the head-up display e.g.:
If the warning symbol illuminates - read the warning message in the driver display.
If the information symbol illuminates - read the message in the driver display.
The snowflake symbol illuminates in the event of a risk of icy conditions.
City Safety in the head-up display
In the event of a collision warning, the information in the head-up display is replaced by the warning symbol for City Safety. This graphic is illuminated even if the head-up display is switched off.
