The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display projects all relevant driving information onto a panel in the driver's field of vision, which means they can remain focused on the road. Data such as speed is displayed, along with navigation tips, Speed Limit Info including no-overtaking indicator, telephone and entertainment lists, and information and warnings from the various driver assistance systems.
The symbols, which are projected onto a retractable panel above the instrument cluster, are depicted in full colour so that the traffic signs look realistic. The panel's slightly tinted colour increases the contrast.
The brightness of the projection automatically adjusts to outside light conditions, and can also be manually set to reflect individual preferences. The day and night displays also feature different designs. Furthermore, the driver can also decide which information to display, in addition to the current speed and warnings from the driver assistance systems. Visibility of the display is limited when wearing polarised sunglasses.
