    BMW’s new HUD displays a navigation screen, speed and cruise control settings, and warnings from BMW’s suite of driver aids: lane departure warning, night vision pedestrian recognition, rear-end collision warning, and adaptive cruise control following distance. The navigation display is halfway between a directional arrow and the full moving map in the center stack. On a multi-line interstate, it shows the number of through lanes and exit lanes, the name of the next turn or exit, and the distance to the next route intersection both as text and as a graphical countdown thermometer.
