Don’t you think it will be amazing if you can get a windshield HUD display on your car while working on Google Maps or Apple Maps? You don’t have to switch your vision between the road and your iPhone often as you can see directly on your windshield the navigation. In this post, we are going to talk about one such jailbreak tweak that is being developed by NoisyFlake. Going by the name of WindowHUD, the tweak allows you to flip your iPhone screen vertically so that it can be utilized as a windshield HUD.

This amazing tweak will add a Control Center toggle to flip your iPhone screen and the same can be viewed thereafter on your car’s windshield. As you might have understood by now, this will be a projected image; the quality of which completely relies on the weather conditions. The more dark it will be outside; the better the image quality will be. If you wish to achieve better results you require setting the screen brightness of your iPhone to the maximum level; of course that will affect the battery life dramatically, so it is recommended to keep a car charger handy when using the WindowHUD tweak.
