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.
The display unit from which the information is projected is located in the instrument panel. To avoid damage to the display unit's cover glass - do not store any objects on the cover glass and make sure that no objects fall down onto it.
Examples of what can be shown in the display.
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.
Certain visual defects may cause headaches and a feeling of stress during the use of the head-up display.
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.
The warning symbol for City Safety flashes in order to attract the driver's attention if there is a risk of collision.
