Turns your smartphone into a head-up display for any car — specially designed app for driving in low visibility conditions.
"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"
This is a major revision of our existing HUDWAY app. We made it from scratch and it was large work. We did a lot of R&D on HUD interfaces to make it helpful and non-distracting. This version sees a brand new route visualization, handy trip info widgets, and lots of useful ride statistics in profile.
HUDWAY 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.
— Live 3D route moves as your vehicle moves — and you understand it immediately.
— Watch your current speed and the distance to the next turn right on the windshield.
— See how safely you drive: the app calculates your driving score based on your acceleration, braking, turns, and speeding data.
— Know your fuel consumption per each trip and the expenses on it.
— Switch among trip info widgets — check traveled and left distance, time spent and ETA.
— Get voice instructions — feels like driving with a co-pilot.
— Check the stats after the ride: maximum and average speed, acceleration, trip distance and duration.
— Collect miles and get bonuses.
— Save routes to drive them later, offline.
— Mark favorite routes, Home and Work locations — to quickly reuse them.
— Drive in map mode or HUD mode
— Works off Apple Maps
Note: If you face any problems or find any bugs, please email us at email@example.com or report the bug right from the app. We appreciate your feedback!
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.

A truly innovative app for drivers
This app isn't just a convenience- it's a safety feature, as well. Turning your head, even slightly, to glance at your phone to see how far out your exit is takes your eyes off the road and leads to accidents. HUDWAY solves this by putting this info right in your line of sight. And it works - extraordinarily well. I use it mainly for highway driving, as the fact that it doesn't give road names makes its use in city driving minimal. I will say that the app still has some tweaks that need to be made. 1/10 of the time I try navigating, it get constantly stuck in calculating the route, and won't load it no matter how many times I relaunch it. I'm sure the app's developers will rejoice when implements OLED screens for iPhone, as the slightly lit screen makes me still glance at my mirrored phone for a second before looking at the HUD. Of course, that's mostly my fault. I've docked a star because of the routing problem and road names, but I'd be happy to put it back in once those are fixed. I look forward to being on the front lines as HUDWAY evolves!
This app/idea is crazy cool but there are improvements that should be made. First, the gps does not re route if for some reason you leave the route it gives you. Second, it does not use street names, it only gives you turning directions. Third, the turning directions are only given within a few hundred feet of the turn. I tried out this app by using it when i drove to my friends house. If I didnt know how to get to his house already, I would've gotten lost using the app because of these things. Please update because I would love using this app
Simple... To simple for navigation
I travel hundreds of miles a day and wanted a navigation HUD to help. This app has a simple display and is to simple for accurate navigation. The apps doesn't announce the road names, doesn't show other roads to judge your turn against, and has very limited settings. I paid for the 1year subscription and without major upgrades I won't be renewing. That being said it is the best currently out there with a mirror function....
