The Head-Up Display that’s an option on various models in the Mercedes-Benz range is an option that’s often overlooked. It’s a feature that’s important for improving safety and comfort while driving. Here at Mercedes-Benz Downtown Calgary, we want to ensure that all Mercedes-Benz owners know about the available safety features in their vehicles.
Since the introduction of new technologies like navigation displays, and other accessible features on media displays, it becomes overwhelming to absorb all the provided information while driving. The simplification of having all the important information displayed directly in front of you is a feature that can’t be missed after you first use it. It provides information like vehicle speed, speed limits, navigation instructions, and warnings from assistance systems.
Effectively, the Head-Up display works by the principles of mirror optics reflecting onto the windscreen to present a 480×240 display of information. High power LEDs are used to illuminate the display module. Using LED lighting in this display creates a crisp and clear reflection that minimizes distraction and maximizes safety.
By a marginal amount the level of safety of not having to look at the large display to the right of the steering wheel saves the driver the distraction of taking their eyes off the road. This split second when looking away from the road can make a life changing difference.
