Terrible hard to read speedometer. Cheap Amazon HUD to the rescue.

    I hate that the speedometer on these trucks is so hard to read in a lot of lighting conditions. So I took a $33 risk and ordered a cheapo OBD2/GPS HUD. It's a little laggy but not terrible and more than usable. Nice and bright. We will see how long it lasts but so far it's real nice to be able to see my speed so much better.

    Looks fancy. Hope it lasts for you. If my little screen is too hard to ready, I just look at my needle. :notsure: I guess there could be a glare that made it hard to see that too, but I like the look of that HUD.

    2014-2017 screens don't show speed - the needle is all you have. Please post a link. My wife's Denali has a HUD and it is awesome on the highway; especially when there is a ton of traffic.

    Aaaah. I did not know that the displays were different. This makes more sense now. I feel dumb. :smack:

    Yep, Almost the 1st thing I noticed when I got mine is no back lighting and thought there was an issue till I read up. Most cars actually back light stronger during the day and dim down somewhat when you turn on the lights. o_O

    I have a 2018 Platinum which has the screen readout, but recently drove my hunting buddies 2016 1794 from the Bay Area to Hutchinson Kansas and back. He drove about two of the 27 hours. The lack of a digital readout for speed drove me nearly mad after being used to mine. The needle is off center and usually I have to crane my neck to see I'm going 80 mph

    Yeah, have it in a Fusion company car and have gotten used to it. Got in the truck and pulled out on the highway with a 65mph at the end of our road. Was accelerating up to speed and looked and saw Johnny Law. Was damn near 10 over and took me a couple of seconds to read the speedo. That could have been a mess.
