    Is anyone running any kind of HUD system on their tacomas?

    I wish they integrated this into the 3rd gens..

    That caught my attention, too. They took a stock photo of an E46 BMW and did a really shitty photoshop job to add that HUD to the image. Leaving in both KPH and MPH was dumb, too. But hey, at least they matched the fake HUD's speed display to the car's 130kph on the speedo. Didn't bother matching the RPMs, though.

    I had a HUD on my Prius. It was cool at first but the novelty didn't last and it was very hard to see with sunglasses on.

    It would add too much money to these trucks. The box that houses the projection unit in the IP would have to sit far back enough (if it cannot be made smaller, also $$$) to allow the proper viewing due to the angle of the windshields on the Tacos. The glass also need to be optically treated or impregnated with an optical laminate ($$$) for the best image quality in all conditions. We're complaining about easily broken glass now... LOL.

    I doubt Toyota will ever do this on a Taco.

    Doesn't he live out in the plains somewhere with miles and miles of unobstructed terrain? :)
