This is an interesting question. Which will be less distracting, or
move your eyes less off the road, a HUD on you windshield in front of
you, a VGA display in your rear view mirror, an iPad propped up on top
of your center dash area, or something else?
I am pretty sure that there really should be no place besides looking
in front that would be safer for you, your passengers and the drivers
If APRS info becomes that much a part of driving, we have perhaps
missed out on what drivers roles are.
