DashMaps Head-up Display GPS Navigation REVIEWS
Dale Stone writes in his DashMaps review- “It technically works as described but is not practical as the orientation of the screen is horizontal as opposed to vertical (the direction of travel), also the projected screen size is too small to be read realistically. Finally if you want voice directions, you must pay an additional fee to upgrade the software to premium”.
Edward Nunez says in his review of DashMaps- “The platform on which the phone has to be attached doesn’t have the best grip. And without Bluetooth – you are domed, so if you are getting an incoming call you have to push a button to switch from call to GPS and vice versa”.
Gloria Silvia complains in her DashMaps review that the reflection doesn’t show on a 45 degree angle. It has to be a 30 to 35 angle in order to see it.
Bessie Smith claims in her DashMaps review that it’s hard to see the screen with sun glasses on.
Jacob Brooks is happy with the HUD display and says in his DashMaps review- “It’s great, but you cannot see the whole map of the area, only the street you are on and turns as you come up on them”.
Otis Carpenter is disappointed with DashMaps and says in his review- “Very low quality and overpriced. Applications are disappointing and lack the data and sophistication available with Google Maps, Apple Maps or Waze”.
Susie Richards states in her DashMaps review- “Reflects on the windshield as well as on itself at night, creating a double vision. It is hard to see through this screen to the road beyond.
Jesus Reid says in his DashMaps review- “Its display is adjustable for your needs, but in reality for the reflection to show up it has to be at a certain angle. Furthermore, you can only use it with their GPS app which is so stripped down. In their app you have to pay extra for voice navigation, you don’t have features like “avoid tolls” as other maps do, and the mileage it says to get to a place is always at least several miles too short”.
Rob Huff claims in his review of DashMaps – “The display is so small there is no way to see it clearly while on the dashboard”.
