Akabane’s A500 takes a different tack when it comes to heads-up displays, opting for a direct-view display instead of projecting the data onto the windshield. This HUD is able to combine ODB and GPS data to show what’s going on inside the car, while also offering the ability to perform acceleration and braking tests. For all it does, the $90 price tag is a reasonable price to pay for such versatility.
