2015 Kia K900: HUD Doesn't Work with Polarized Shades

May 19, 2015

2015 Kia K900

The head-up display on our long-term 2015 Kia K900 is a nice feature. Like almost every other HUD, it displays your current speed but it also issues small warning images for when someone is in your blind spot. I like this feature because it helps me keep my eyes on the road. I'm all for checking mirrors, but this is a great secondary warning system if someone slips into the next lane without me noticing.

The problem is that I can't see the HUD when wearing my sunglasses.

Polarized sunglasses help cut down on glare, but some HUD and touchscreen displays can't make it through the lenses. The K900 has one of those systems. It's not a deal breaker since the $6,000 VIP Package option includes so many other useful features along with the HUD. But it does mean I need to leave my favorite shades at home if I'm driving the K900 and want to use the head-up display.
