The Original Head Up Display!

JAN 2019 Update: You can now toggle between reflective and non reflective display!

Reduce your risk of speeding and fines!

.

It can be quite easy for any driver to go over the speed limit without even realising it. Statistics show that the risk of crashing doubles for every 5km/h that you exceed the limit.

.

The HUD Plus has proven to be an important product when it comes to reducing the chances of speeding and accidents.

.

The HUD plus displays your vehicle’s speed up onto the windscreen in a clear transparent digital format directly in the driver’s line of vision.

.

.

This allows you to clearly see what speed you are travelling at without taking your eyes off the road to check the Speedo.

.

A special benefit of the HUD plus is that the unit will give you audible warnings when approaching fixed red light and speed cameras.

.

The Polaris HUD plus is simple to install. Just plug it into your 12Volt outlet and the speed is calculated via GPS satellites.

.

.The unit also has 2 over speed alert warnings that can be adjusted to your desired level.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the HUD PLUS work?

The HUD PLUS is a small unit that mounts on your dashboard and reflects the speed up onto your windscreen. It simply plugs into the cigarette lighter and it calculates the speed via the GPS satellites. The HUD PLUS also has audible fixed speed and red light camera alerts built into it.

 How is the HUD PLUS beneficial?

There are many reasons why the HUD PLUS would be beneficial and some include:

reduces the risk of accidents as you don’t need to keep diverting your eyes from the road to continually check your speed.

.

Lowers the risk of speeding fines as you can clearly see what speed you are traveling at and it also has the added bonus of warning you when approaching a fixed speed camera.

.

.

Classic or imported cars where the speed is displayed in miles per hour

 .

How does it know the speed?

It calculates the speed via GPS satellites

How accurate is it?

Because the speed is calculated via GPS satellites, it is most likely more accurate than your speedo. All speedometers are calibrated to have some margin of error.

What is the GPS Refresh Rate

One time per second (1Hz)

How does it know where the Fixed Speed and Red light cameras are located?

The HUD PLUS works out via satellites when you are approaching fixed Speed and Red light cameras that are loaded in the data.

Who provides the data for the fixed Speed and Red light cameras?

The data is provided by Tom Tom

Does the HUD PLUS display anything on the windscreen when approaching the speed camera and red light cameras?

No the warning is audible only

Do I need to set anything up or turn the camera warnings on when I originally install the unit?

No you do not have to set anything up, just make sure that the voice is not muted (please read troubleshooting FAQ if you cannot hear the warnings).

How many metres does it warn me when approaching speed cameras and red light cameras?

The HUD PLUS will warn you approx. 190 metres on approach and then again at approx 50 metres on approach.

What kind of sound does it make when alerting me to a speed camera?

The unit will actually ‘tell’ you and it will also advise what the current speed zone is.
For example if you are traveling in an 80km/h zone and you are approaching a speed camera it will say ‘Speed Camera in 190 metres, speed zone 80km’, it will then warn you again at approx 50 metres ‘Speed Camera in 50 metres, speed zone 80km’

What kind of sound does it make when alerting me to a red light camera?

The unit will actually ‘tell’ you, for example when approaching a red light camera it will say ‘Red light camera in 190 metres it will then warn you again at approx 50 metres ‘Red Light Camera in 50 metres’.

Will it warn me when approaching mobile speed cameras?

No, it will only warn you when you approach FIXED red light and speed cameras

How do I update the HUD PLUS?

We normally receive an update every year. To get the unit updated, you will need to send the HUD plus  back and we will update it for you.

Can I match it with my vehicles speedo?

Yes there is a setting to calibrate the HUD PLUS to match your speedo exactly.

Does it have speed alerts?

Yes, it has 2 preset speed alert warnings that you can set up yourself.

The unit will make a beep sound when you exceed the preset warning.

So for example if you wanted to set a warning at 80 km/h and 100km/h the unit will beep once when you exceed 80km/h and beep twice when you exceed 100 km/h

Does the HUD PLUS display the time?

Yes the HUD PLUS does display the time. It displays in white and the feature can be turned off

How do I turn the HUD plus into a digital speedo?

If you have the new updated model that we started selling from January 2019 and onwards then you can hold down (long press) the UP ARROW touch button.

Can I hardwire it?

Yes we do have a hardwire option available, the cable is $22.00 which means that the 12/24 volt  power will be picked up from behind the dashboard.

Why do I need a hardwire cable? Can’t I just cut the cigarette lighter end off?

Our hardwire cable has a 5 volt reducer built in so that when you power it to 12 volt, you do not cause any damage to the unit. The 5 volt reducer is built into the cigarette lighter adaptor so when you cut this off, you are cutting off the reducer.

Can Polaris install the unit for me?

Yes we can, if you want us to hardwire it, it is an extra $50.00.

If you just want us to set it up via the cigarette lighter, this is free of charge.

We will plug the unit in, mount the unit on the dashboard and apply the window tint.

Can I see it in sunlight?

As long as the HUD PLUS has been adjusted correctly to suit your windscreen, the HUD will display in sunlight with no problems. The window tint will also enhance the quality in sunlight.
Alternatively, if you have purchased a HUD plus from January 2019 and onwards then you can hold down (long press) the UP ARROW touch button to turn the display into a digital speedo. This means that you do not have to look at a reflection of the speed on the windscreen. You simply look directly at the unit to read the speed.

Can I see the HUD PLUS at night?

Yes you can clearly see the HUD PLUS at night, if the speed is too bright you can simply turn the brightness down.

Do I have to use the window Tint?

The window tint is optional; some customers can see the speed perfectly fine without the window tint (except if you wear polarized sunglasses, please see question below relating to this). We suggest that you set it up without the window tint first and see how you find it.

Can I adjust the brightness?

Yes you can adjust the brightness up and down via the main menu on the HUD PLUS, or if you have the automatic brightness adjustment turned on, the unit will adjust accordingly.

Can install it myself and how?

You simply find a perfect spot to sit your HUD PLUS, plug it into the cigarette lighter and apply the window tint if you wish to use it.

How does it stick on the dash?

The HUD PLUS uses 3M double sided tape to stick onto the dash

 What if my car has a dash mat?

We suggest buying some Velcro and sticking it to the dash mat.

Will it suit my car?

The HUD PLUS will suit any car. We understand that all windscreens are different shapes and sizes this is why the HUD PLUS sits on an adjustable mount so you can move it up and down to get the desired speed display.

Does it alert me when I approach red light cameras and speed cameras?

Yes the Polaris HUD PLUS will alert you when you approach speed cameras or red light cameras.

What is the difference between the DIGITAL HUD and the HUD PLUS? 

The DIGITAL HUD and the HUD plus are the exact same unit. The only difference is that the HUD plus reflects the speed onto your windscreen whereas you look directly at the speed on the DIGITAL HUD.
In other words the HUD plus is reflective and the DIGITAL HUD is non reflective.

Can I see the HUD PLUS if I wear polarized sunglasses?

You can still see the HUD PLUS perfectly fine when used in conjunction with the window tint, it does dim slightly but as long as the HUD PLUS has been adjusted to suit your windscreen you should have no problems.

Please Note: The above information is based from our own experience and customer feedback. Your experience with the Green HUD PLUS may differ due to individual differences and the fact that we all see colours differently.

If you wear polarized sunglasses a lot we would suggest to turn the display from reflective into non reflective.

Can I move it from vehicle to vehicle?

Yes you can move it from vehicle to vehicle as it just plugs into the cigarette lighter. We also sell the adjustable mount and window tint as spare parts.

 What are the dimensions?

The dimensions of the unit are (L) 10.07cm x (H) 7cm x (W) 1.5cm

 How heavy is the HUD PLUS?

The unit weighs 80 grams

Does it have to be in my line of vision?

Not necessarily, the numbers are a large display so mounting it near your line of vision is good enough.

We have the HUD PLUS mounted in the right hand corner of the dash and we can still monitor our speed perfectly fine.

Will it obstruct my vision?

No you do not have to have it directly in your line of vision but if you do, the speed displays in a clear transparent image, so you can see straight through it.

Are there different colours available?

No, the HUD PLUS is only available in a green display. The speed is displayed in green and the time is displayed in white.

What is the warranty?

12 months replacement Warranty

Where can I buy it?

We have a number of stockists available which you can find on our website www.polarisgps.com.com.au

Troubleshooting

I can’t see the HUD PLUS in sunlight, it’s too faint!

The HUD PLUS works perfectly fine in sunlight; it is probably just a case of adjusting it properly to suit your windscreen.

You will find that if you adjust it up or down, the image will either dim or become brighter.

Sometimes this means seeing the actual HUD PLUS screen as well.

The HUD PLUS is way out from my Speedo (this could range from 10 km/h to 100 km/h)

The HUD PLUS will vary slightly from your speedometer as your speedometer is calibrated with some margin of error, but if it is way out (from 10km/h and up) it is probably just a case of the unit being calibrated incorrectly; this is quite easy to do as it can be confused for the speed alert setting.

If you want the HUD PLUS to simply work off satellites, please set the calibration back to 0.

It takes about 30 seconds to pick up satellite, is this normal?

Yes the unit will take approx 30-40 seconds to pick up satellites

When I go through tunnels, it stops working, is this normal?

Yes, unless the tunnel has a built in GPS booster, the HUD PLUS will lose satellite whilst in a tunnel.

My HUD has overheated and it will not start until it had cooled down, is this normal?

Yes, as with all electronic products they can only take a certain amount of heat. Whilst you are driving this shouldn’t be too much of an issue, however if you are leaving your car parked in the hot sun for a fair amount of time, we suggest unplugging the HUD, sliding it off the bracket and placing it in the glove box. This will prevent the HUD from overheating whilst sitting in the hot sun.

The HUD PLUS is not alerting me to any red light and speed cameras that I approach, is there a problem with the unit?

Please double check that you have not accidentally muted the voice or turned the volume down. To enable/disable the voice press set (do not hold it down as this will turn the time feature on and off). Also go into your volume settings and make sure that the volume is turned up to a reasonable setting so that you can hear it. If you have double checked both of these settings and they are ok, please give us a call on 1300 555 514 to speak with our support team.

The HUD PLUS alerts me for some of the red light/speed cameras and not others, why is this?

As more and more cameras are getting installed, if the speed/red light cameras have been installed within the last update available from Polaris, then unfortunately it won’t be in the data until possibly the next update that we receive from Tom Tom. If you believe that the camera has been there for many years and it still is not warning you please give us a call on 1300 555 514 to speak with our support team.

The DIGITAL HUD keeps cutting out 

We believe this to be a power issue. Please contact Polaris on 1300 555 514 or email returns@poron.com.au and we will send you out a brand new Cigarette lighter adaptor.

    Dash Camera tricks and tips

    Did you know that most of the dash cams out on the market pretty much all have the same features and work the same?

    Whether you own a Polaris dash cam or another brand of dash cam, here are just a few of our handy hints to ensure that your dash cam captures the footage you need:

    1. FORMAT YOUR SD CARD REGULARLY

    If you don’t read anything else on this list, then just read this tip:
    Most of the time, we blame the dash cam for not recording our most crucial needed footage when we should be blaming the SD card.
    SD cards used in dash cams are put through their paces. Recording and then getting stopped suddenly when the car is turned off can create potential problems. SD cards can become corrupted and this is where the problem lies. Formatting the SD card on a regular basis completely wipes the SD card and any potential hidden corrupt files. Trust me, it is better to be safe than sorry so let’s repeat together: FORMAT, FORMAT, FORMAT.

    2. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A REPUTABLE, CLASS 10, BRAND OF SD CARD

    Sometimes formatting is not enough for some SD cards and sometimes even the class of SD card makes a big difference. Our dash cam comes with a 16GB, class 10 Kingston. So when purchasing an SD card for your dash cam, stick to the well-known, brands and make sure it is class 10.

    3. MOST DASH CAMS WILL NOT RUN VERY LONG WITHOUT POWER.

    Yes most dash cameras have a built in battery however the battery is not designed to stay on very long while it’s in use without constant power. Most dash cams will only last 5 – 10 minutes while recording without power. The dash camera also won’t charge very much while in use.
    So what is the purpose of the battery then? Well a lot of dash cameras have ‘park detection’. The idea behind this is when you turn your ignition off, the dash cam turns off and goes into standby mode. If you have the park detection feature on and the G-sensor senses a substantial impact, the dash cam will turn on, record for x amount of seconds and turn back off again.

    4. YOUR DATE AND TIME CAN REVERT BACK TO DEFAULT IF YOU HAVEN’T USED THE DASH CAM IN A COUPLE OF DAYS.

    As noted above the dash camera battery doesn’t last long, nor will it really charge all that much while it’s in use (The battery drains A LOT when it is recording). So if you haven’t driven your car in a couple of days, the dash cam’s battery will completely drain and it will revert back to most of its default settings – including date and time. If you want to ensure that this doesn’t happen, our best advice is to take the dash camera with you and put it on charge at home if you know that you won’t be driving your car in the next couple of days.

    5. TURN MOTION DETECTION OFF

    In all honesty, motion detection is not needed in most of the dash cams on the market and I am not quite sure why manufacturers keep adding it in (Even our dash cam has the motion detection feature). The reason we don’t suggest turning it on is because most dash cams automatically start recording when you turn your ignition on anyway (without motion detection being activated). The problem with motion detection is that if the dash cam doesn’t detect any motion a certain distance from the lens, it will stop recording until it detects motion again. This is not ideal if you are sitting at lights and something happens. So our advice is to turn motion detection off as most dash cams are designed to automatically start recording when you start your car anyway.

    These tips and opinions have been formed from testing many dash cam samples over the years and have found is that most  dash cameras have the same features / problems.
    This list was devised as a tool to help ensure that you have the best chance of capturing footage that may be needed if involved in an accident.  (whether you own our dash camera or another brand).
