General

Installation should only be carried out with the vehicle in a level, stationary position and with the parking brake engaged.

There are 2 options for installation:

  • With power supply from the vehicle 12V accessory power outlet. For this option, instructions for the power connection are in the Power Connection (Plug Option) section of these instructions.
  • With power supply from the vehicle’s 12V or 24V permanent power supply. For this option, instructions for the power connection are in the Power Connection (Permanent Power Option) section of these instructions.

Installation involving connection to the vehicle’s permanent power supply should be carried out only by a qualified automotive electrician. Under no circumstances should it be carried out by unqualified persons. Doing so, or attempting to do so may result in serious damage to the vehicle and will void any warranty for this product, stated or implied.

Display Module

Select a position on the dashboard, preferably directly in front of the driver and as close to the windscreen as possible, where the display can be clearly read down the light shield.

Ensure that the proposed position will not interfere with the operation of the vehicle airbags, or any other vehicle controls, instruments or accessories. Also ensure that there is no obstruction between the top of the Display Module and the windscreen.

The proposed position should also ensure that the Display Module, when installed, is wholly below a (theoretical) straight line from the driver’s eye position to the highest visible line of the vehicle bonnet.

Before mounting the Display Module with the double sided adhesive pads provided, ensure that both surfaces are cleaned with a silicone release solvent. If necessary, use one of the Mounting Blocks supplied, to raise or tilt the Module for optimum viewing. If the dashboard shape or steering wheel obstruct the display, move the Module to an unobstructed position.

Mounting Blocks

If the use of a Mounting Block is necessary, attach it to the base of the Display Module in the correct position using one of the Adhesive Pads. Using another Adhesive Pad, locate the Display Module in the correct position and press it firmly into place.

Switch & Lead

Select a position for the Switch which is easily accessible to the driver. Ensure that this area is cleaned with a silicone release solvent.

Remove the Adhesive Pad backing from the Switch and press it firmly into the position chosen and previously cleaned.

Plug the switch lead into the socket marked SW on the rear of the Display Module.

Arrange the switch lead so that it does not interfere with the operation of, or impede access to any of the vehicle controls, instruments or accessories.

Power Connection (Plug Option)

Refer to Installation Diagram 1 following these instructions.

Using the Power Lead with Plug, connect the appropriate plug to the socket marked BAT on the rear of the Display Module.

Connect the power adaptor plug to the 12V accessory power outlet of the vehicle.

Arrange the power lead so that it does not interfere with the operation of, or impede access to any of the vehicle controls, instruments or accessories.

Power Connection (Permanent Power Option)

Refer to the general notes in the Installation section of these instructions and to Installation Diagram 2 following these instructions.

Using the Power Lead with One Plug, connect the plug on the lead to the socket marked BAT on the rear of the Display Module.

Carefully remove any trim from the right hand windscreen pillar. Feed the end (with no plug) of the lead through the gap revealed and pull through to below the dashboard and connect it to the vehicle ignition (Red) and body earth (Black), carefully matching the lead colours.

Carefully pull any excess length of cable through to below the dashboard and neatly and securely fix it in place.

Arrange the power lead so that it does not interfere with the operation of, or impede access to any of the vehicle controls, instruments or accessories.

HUD 09 OPERATION

Standard Operation

The speedometer is automatically activated when the vehicle ignition is switched on.

Drive the vehicle normally and the road speed will be indicated in kilometres per hour on the Display. When the ignition is switched off, the speedometer is automatically de‑activated.

The displayed speed is updated once per second.

Over Speed Warning System

The speedometer has an Over Speed Warning System which allows a preferred maximum speed to be set. When this has been set, there are 2 alarms available to warn when the preferred maximum speed is exceeded. These alarms are:

  • Visual Over Speed Display: red LED lights on each side of the speed Display. These are illuminated when the preferred maximum speed is exceeded.
  • Audible Over Speed Display: an audible buzzer. This sounds when the preferred maximum speed is exceeded.

The alarms can be set to act together or individually. For the method of setting them refer to the Setting The Over Speed Displays section of these instructions.

A buffer of +3 km per hour has been programmed into the Over Speed Warning System due to the difficulty of maintaining an exact speed of say 40 km per hour or 60 km per hour. At 3 km per hour above the maximum speed set (43 km per hour if the Over Speed Warning System is set to 40 km per hour), the Over Speed Alarms will be activated. They will remain on until the vehicle speed drops to less than 3 km per hour above the maximum speed set.

Activating the Over Speed Warning System

To activate the Over-Speed Warning System, legally drive the vehicle to the maximum speed preferred; for example 40 km/h. Click the Switch. The speed display will change to A.oN. and then back to the vehicle speed.

With this setting, both the Visual and Audible Over Speed Displays are activated. This can be changed as described in the next section of these instructions.

When the Over Speed Warning System is activated, the decimal point on the right hand side of the Display is illuminated.

Setting The Over Speed Displays

When the Over Speed Warning System has been turned on (and the Visual & Audible Over Speed Displays are activated), the displays can be set to different combinations.

This should be done with the vehicle in a level, safe stationary position & with the parking brake applied. The displays can be changed in the following sequence:

  • press the Switch and hold it down. When the display changes to L.oN. and the buzzer sounds, release the Switch. Now, only the Visual Over Speed Display is activated.
  • press the Switch again and hold it down. When the display changes to b.oN. and the buzzer sounds, release the Switch. Now, only the Audible Over Speed Display is activated.
  • press the Switch again and hold it down. When the display changes to O.FF and the buzzer sounds, release the Switch. The Over Speed Warning System is no longer activated and no Over Speed Displays are shown.

As an alternative, press the Switch and hold it down continuously. When the display changes to L.oN., continue to hold it down. The display will change to b.oN. and, if the Switch continues to be held down, it will then change to O.FF and then to A.oN. again in a continuous cycle. At each change of alternative, the buzzer will sound. Releasing the Switch when any alternative is displayed will select it.

Whichever selections are set for the Over Speed Warning System (preferred maximum speed and Over Speed Display selection) will be retained in the speedometer memory when the vehicle is turned off. When it is next turned on, the same settings will apply.

Changing The Preferred Maximum Speed In The Over Speed Display System

To set the Over Speed Warning System to another preferred maximum speed, legally drive at that speed, and click the Switch. The new preferred maximum speed is now set. The Over Speed Display selection previously made will be retained.

Other Information

The speedometer’s speed information is obtained from satellites, using a GPS module. A minimum of 3 satellites are required for this to operate. If, for any reason, 3 satellites are not available, the Display will cycle in a rotating pattern and no speed will be shown.

The speedometer will NOT operate in buildings, tunnels, multi-storey carparks or other locations where a view of the required number of satellites is not available.

Where the speedometer is in a location where it cannot access satellites for an extended period of time, such as several hours in a multi-storey carpark or in a garage overnight, it may take up to 3 - 5 minutes to commence operation.

This may also occur where there is heavy cloud cover, as this can reduce the initial availability of the required number of satellites.

Some vehicles have a metallic or UV resistant coating on their windscreens. This can, in some cases, prevent the speedometer from operating by blocking the view of the satellites. It may also delay the commencement of operation of the speedometer.
