Re: Stuipdity on wheels
I associate HUDs more with jet fighters than commercial aviation, although they apparently have made it onto some jetliners. Regardless, HUDs are used selectively (not for the data on every guage and dial) and only for critical pieces of information intended to improve safety (or in a military context, situational awareness). There are some HUD technologies that make sense for automobiles, for example to help the driver to see better in the dark, if they improve the actual operation of the car. But that's where it should stop.

I doubt airline pilots get heads up display of their text messages. I suspect they get heads up display of information needed to fly the plane. There's a risk associated with where your head is while driving, not just your eyes.

From the article:

In other words, the issue is too complicated to declare, "It's safe."

and

If safety is the goal, the best option would be to set one's smartphone aside while at the wheel. 

You have to be reading very selectively to conclude the article accepts Navdy's claims.
