Visibility of the display

The visibility of the displays in the Head-up Display is influenced by the following factors:

  • Seat position.
  • Objects on the cover of the Head-up Display.
  • Sunglasses with certain polarization filters.
  • Wet roads.
  • Unfavorable light conditions.

If the image is distorted, have the basic settings checked by a dealer's service center or another qualified service center or repair shop.

Special windshield

The windshield is part of the system.

The shape of the windshield makes it possible to display a precise image.

A film in the windshield prevents double images from being generated.

For this reason, it is strongly suggested to have the special windshield replaced by a dealer's service center or another qualified service center or repair shop, if necessary.
