    I am surprised that I haven't seen this mentioned yet, but wouldn't the blank dashboard in front of the driver make a good place to put a phone holder? So you could do something like run Waze there to augment the existing Nav.

    Someone should build a projector into a phone, mount the phone on the dash board, and voila, HUD ;)

    Would you really want waze on your ~5.5" screen vs 15" center console? I think many owners (me included) would love waze integration. Right?

    Well, yeah - CarPlay and apps like Waze. But if you don't get that, phone screen would be plan B.

    Sorry just can't resist it, whenever I hear HUD on TMC I think of this:

    There is no binnacle on the model 3 to mount the Navdy above. Really looks like I will be doing the same as all my other cars. Put an iPhone mount on the dash with a wire running to it to charge.

    Say, that's a point. Anyone seen the cigarette lighter? Where do we plug in all our favorite accessories and pumps?
