It's the only option my Acadia does not have that I want, but I have a feeling it's not possible unless it is built in with the car at assembly time.
Thanks,

Corvette folks are adding HUD...I am not to sure how difficult it is to add it to the Acadia's though...

While we didn't ask about HUD, we had the same issue w/ the power liftgate (only missing option we wanted). The dealer said it could NOT be added after the fact. I'm guessing the HUD couldn't either, except possibly as a true aftermarket mod, as Adam mentioned.

I had to have the HUD unit in my Grand Prix replaced under warranty. It sits in a hole cut in the top of the dash in front of the driver, and the controls were mounted in a knock-out in the dash. Doesn't look like a big problem to install the physical unit, but the actual electrical interface might be a problem. Check with your dealers service dept. Good luck! I really like mine. After market might also be an option.

I really don't think it would be practical to add the factory HUD after leaving the factory--would require at least replacing the dash--big labor charge I'm sure.

I checked Ebay and they do have after market ones as well as some out of Corvettes and Pontiacs.

The most interesting one I found was from GM Hughes DataVision--they sell retail (lots of new ones on Ebay) for $316.

I copied a couple photos of one for bid--looks like it is installed on a Chevy Trailblazer.

Personnally it looks like something Jeff Foxworthy might have in one of his skits.

See below.

That would be rather annoying to have that big box on the ceiling. Looks interesting though

I had a 1999 pontiac gran prix with the hud, had the windshield replaced and it was a special windshield with special embedded gold stuff for the hud. Don't know if acadia is like this or not.
