The full-colour BMW Head-Up Display with M specific functions projects all information relevant to the journey directly into the driver's field of vision, thereby allowing them to fully concentrate on driving. The display includes data such as speed, navigation tips, telephone and entertainment lists, along with information and warnings from the various driver assistance systems. At the press of a button, the driver can switch to the sportier M specific display. Along with a digital speedometer, it also shows the selected gear and a multi-coloured revolution counter with shift lights for determining the best time to shift.
The icons projected onto the windscreen are displayed in a particularly high resolution and in full colour. The image's projection appears as if it were 2.3 m in front of the vehicle. This, in combination with optimal positioning, allows the information to be read quickly, conveniently and with minimal distraction. The brightness of the projection automatically adjusts to match exterior light conditions. Additionally, there are also daytime and night-time settings, and the height of the projection can also be adjusted. Furthermore, the driver can also select which information to display in addition to the current speed and warnings from the driver assistance systems.
