    i bought one from Repco a little while ago as i figured it would be a perfect way to get an accurate speedo as it took its signal from GPS rather than the car. When i went to fit it though i had to install this ridiculous panel of reflective mirror type stuff to the inside of the windscreen and was going to be in the middle of my view. Just Dumb and i considered it to be a Safety issue. The unit i purchased also was going to be a real bastard to mount in a space on a GU Dash where it reflected into the right spot on the windscreen. the Dash was the wrong shape.

    I ended up taking it back and asking for a refund. Nice idea in theory but when it played out it was going to be hideous. Its great if its built in but retro fitting was a dogs breakfast.
    Its a Nissan! =====> Its a Keeper!! ....... Got a TD42 in it BONUS!! ....... I'm a lucky bugger! I've got 2 of em!

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    I just use this app on my phone, which can also be used as a HUD. Not tried it as an HUD during the day though. But it's free, so why not try it........... your yours is an android phone that is.

    I used the HUD through an app like a few of the others here, it seemed gimmicky and I got over it pretty quickly. I was pretty wary of the accuracy too, don't think the police would take too kindly to that excuse!

    Maybe a real one would be better, but I think I got the gist.

    If you search these models on Amazon though I'm sure you could find numerous reviews.
