Hudway Go is a simple GPS navigation app for drivers.
It keeps it very intuitive and non-distracting, displaying just the outline of the road you’re driving and your next manoeuvre.
"Hudway is one of the cleverest driving apps we've seen"
"Hudway app is unbelievably cool for one special reason: It actually lets you see your directions and route right on your windshield"
— USA Today
"Hudway HUD tool will remind you nothing less than a science fiction movie that you watched recently"
"HUDWAY turns your windshield into a jet fighter cockpit"
HUDWAY Go helps you drive safer in fog, rain, heavy snow, in dusk and darkness.
Create a route and place your smartphone on the dashboard — you’ll see the route reflected on your windshield. Keep your eyes on the road and know in advance what’s ahead — a straight run, or a ramp-turn. This is especially handy when driving between cities.

1. On a clear day, the device screen brightness is typically insufficient to give a decent reflection for HUD mode. In that situation, you can use the app in standard mode with the phone fixed with some mount, OR stay HUD using our HUDWAY Glass accessory (learn more about it at hudwayglass.com). At night, in dusk, or in dull weather the reflection is normally well-discernible.
2. When driving, make sure that your smartphone or tablet is well fixed in some mount or on some sticky pad, and doesn't prevent you from clearly seeing the road.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

New features to Voice assistant:
—You can now adjust which voice hints to hear while driving
— Voice hints are now given depending on your speed: fewer, when you’re driving fast, and more, when you’re driving slower.
— Camera alerts are more detailed now: voice assistant will tell you the distance to the camera and its type.

New dark mode to 2D Map:
— When you’re driving with HUDWAY, the app will automatically check ambient light conditions, and will accordingly switch the 2D map theme to the dark mode if it’s dark outside — this way, it will no longer blind you.

— The POI categories now feature charging stations. You can select to display them on the map to find the nearest one for your electic or hybrid vehicle.
Ratings and Reviews
This isn’t the most user friendly app in the world but it could get by if it was tied to a decent GPS. But the GPS tied to this app is awful. I’ve only had one experience with it but that’s clearly enough. I bought 5 VIZR Heads Up Displays for myself and Christmas gifts. They recommend this app to be used with it. Apparently WAZE and Google Maps won’t work on HUD’s, which is regrettable. I live in a well established neighborhood in a good sized city.
I programmed in my Home Address and asked it to navigate me to a local post office 4 miles away, on almost a straight shot on a large arterial roadway. It did, and I was pleased. Then I told it to navigate me to my Home. The GPS on this very simple drive couldn’t do it. It directed me to make several wrong turns before even getting near to my destination. When I got home, the GPS didn’t recognize where I was, even though I started from there 20 minutes beforehand.
It’s too bad. The HUD hardware worked pretty well, but what good is a great display when the recommended app is misdirecting you? I’m going to have to send back the 5 display units until some decent GPS is made available with the reversed and inverted image necessary for this kind of hands-free display.

Hi! We're very sorry for failing to meet your expectations with our app! Please, visit this article advising other possible HUD-supplying apps for your devices - https://hudway.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/115006490947-HUD-mode-apps-to-use-with-HUDWAY-Glass. Nevertheless, thank you so much for sharing your feedback with us! Any needs or questions - please contact us at email@example.com. Thanks!
I got this app at Christmas time to go with a device I received as a gift. This app was recommended. Unfortunately, it didn’t work as I’d expected it to as everything ended up 90 degrees off at the time and a lot of the directions were off by blocks at times. . I decided to wait a while and see if it got any better but its still difficult to use and just an unfortunate waste of money for me.
I’d written before hoping to get a refund by requesting when canceling the subscription a week after I got it but never heard from anyone.
Also a very sketchy way to make sure a person has as much difficulty as possible in order to ask for a refund for an app they’ve deleted- made the name that shows up on the billing Subscriptions page say: “Premium Subscriptions” rather that the name of the app to ensure they can’t find the name of the app and give up!!

Hi Shanon! We've already answered you via email. Please feel free to text us if we can help somehow else. Thank you!
I installed the Hudway Go premium app with Sound. Upon using it it had many wrong turns and incomplete actions. Example it would say turn right in 200 feet but there was no right turn and the arrow was showing left turn. When using it on a highway in getting off in a city it had me get off incorrect exit and then lost the signal and could not provide new location. I had to switch to Google Maps. Overall it does work most of the time except when you getting into a city situation. What I have been doing is running Hudway Go with no sound and with Waze voice running in the background I would really like my money back on this one, bad choice not reliable.

Dear JJ, we thank you for such a detailed feedback and reporting the issues. We're working hard to improve the app performance — and the nearest update should see major improvements in navigation and voice guidance. We're also improving the overall responsiveness and efficiency for the United States, as we bought new servers to faster process the data.
Anyway, if you would like your money back, we respect your decision — please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we arrange a refund. Thank you again!
