FIXD Automotive puts a VIZR heads up display in your car

NEWS – Many new cars come with a heads up display built into the top of the dashboard. What do you do if you don’t have that option on your new car, or have an older car? Enter the VIZR, a smartphone adapter that creates a virtual display using your phone and an app to give you navigation directions without having you look down at your phone.

The VIZR consists of a base, where you place your phone, and a translucent screen. The base has a non-slip coating so it doesn’t slide around when you’re executing hard turns. Your phone projects onto the screen allowing you to see a virtual HUD for your navigation app. It’s important to note that, because the phone’s display is mirrored, the orientation will be flipped. You will, therefore, need an app that has a HUD setting. The one recommended by FIXD is Hudway Go, although there are others.

The VIZR is large enough that FIXD states that it will work with any smartphone. The base is 6 3/8 inches long with the reflective part being 2 5/8 by 5 5/16. Although large, the VIZR is not big enough to fit tablets or tablet phones.

The VIZR is available directly from FIXD. It’s priced at $39.99 and discounts are applied if you order more than one.

      1. That’d be fine. What wouldn’t be fine is arriving at my destination with a dead mobile because I’d been using navigation and streaming music with the screen on full brightness.

  2. Please do not promote this product! I’m asking you as a consumer that purchased this item because I saw a similar article and thought it would be great. When I received it I tried it out and it is not at all what it appears to be. You cannot use any Map app. You have to use their platform and it falls far below what most prefer to use. It doesn’t come close to Google Maps, Waze, etc. Plus, it is very hard to see and doesn’t serve the purpose of making it easier to follow.
    I returned the product within the 30 day guideline listed on their site for returns. I packaged it up and sent it back. They never refunded my purchase. When I reached out to them, they told me it was purchased during a “Holiday Sale” and is not eligible for a refund!! Absurd! It never said that anywhere on the site about the product. Plus, the price was exactly the same as it is now. So the “sale” is completely false as well. I tried multiple times and kept getting the same response. I’m out about $40 but I have learned NEVER to deal with this company ever again. Others should learn and not make the same mistake I did. I’ve never been treated this way by a company for something that was not damaged and properly returned within the time frame. STAY AWAY!!!!

    Here’s the reply I received after I complained about the first response:

    Hello *******,

    Thanks for reaching back to us!

    We are so sorry for the inconvenience, but this is already mentioned on our site FAQs that the holiday sale devices are not eligible for the return, so we are unable to arrange a return for you.

    I am happy to answer any questions you may have for us via email, but if you would like to talk to one of our representatives you can contact us by phone at (925)-854-1766.

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with!
    Thank you,
    Brian @FIXD
