2013 Cadillac ATS: Useful Combo of HUD and Gauge Cluster Display
October 1, 2013
Normally, I'm not all that keen on head-up displays (HUD), as a nice set of gauges is all I want or need. But I've found the ATS's gauges to be a little hard to read, and sometimes the top of the steering wheel blocks my view of the top of the speedo depending on my seating position. As such, the HUD comes in handy.
I've found that with the HUD and the configurable display in the gauge cluster, I can have everything I really want displayed in a way that's very easy and quick to see. (It's also less distracting than looking over to the main central touchscreen display.)
I'll set the HUD to show speed and the road's speed limit, and then the configurable cluster display to some variation, but usually fuel economy/audio information/fuel range.
If I were buying an ATS, I'd very likely spring to get the optional HUD.
