I just bought the new version of the sca hud for $89. https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/sca-sca-gps-head-up-display/579260.html

Was originally keen on the scoshe version from jbhifi, until I read reviews they like to overheat & throw out a warning buzzer & shut down

I can't comment on the quality of this sca hud yet, but it runs on 12v, has a 1year warranty & I can take it back if I'm not happy so it's worth the gamble. And this new version has the ability for speedo correction which was apparently a major fault in the previous version 👍 out of the box its reading 58kph when my cars says 60kph, so it's actually reading spot on using GPS satellites. There's the expected lag which is frustrating I guess, but it's pouring down so that might be a factor as well. 

As with most of these things, they require u to apply a strip of film to the windscreen, which I will not be doing as I've got the image sitting pretty high up & don't wanna see an ugly piece of plastic there. As such, the numbers have a bit of ghosting but I'm fine with that. I've got the image up high because I chose a spot to place the module on the back of the hump on the dash so I don't have to see it as much. If I placed in down on the flat area close to the windscreen, then u can see the actual screen on the module which looked crap. Would be nice if they made a shroud along one side of it to block the actual screen from the driver.

Overall, I recommend it, it's quite a cool feature on an older car 😃

Hi Adam. I've never really paid too much attention to HUD to be honest but this looks like a handy gadget for those long trips.

How does it read the speed ? Does it have a GPS module in it ?

Also, just remember that your cars speedo is always reading higher than real time speed. So you could see 64 or 65 on the dial but you're actually doing 60.

It reads speed via GPS. Is already accurate straight outta the box, but I might adjust it inline with the cars gauge to read 'wrong' purely for the safety buffer

I'd adjust it also. better to have that safety buffer as you say. 

Thanks for sharing Adam.

Moved it closer to windscreen, numbers are larger, brighter & I made a shield so module screen can't be seen, & adjusted it to read 5% higher.... Success 👍 still has ghosting though
