Phone Reflector Head Up Display
This product is useful for those seeking to utilize technology in the cockpit while keeping their eyes on the outside and maintaining situational awareness. The non-certificated HUD features a 6.5-inch display for magnified viewing of whatever is on your cellphone screen, which is captured simply by placing your phone flat on the HUD. Whether you’d like an enlarged attitude indicator in the cockpit or to track your flight progress with your favorite aviation app, this product allows you to do so without losing sight of your surroundings.
The HUD itself requires no outside power, and it comes equipped with a no-slip base so that it can be mounted securely on top of the panel. The display angle can be adjusted as needed for most effective viewing from either the left- or right-hand seat. The product is available for $19.95.Learn more at Sportys.com
