Head-up display or heads-up display?

Hi Oppo! Can you help me set the record straight?

The official name for this device is “head-up display” (singular), not “heads-up display” (plural, incorrect). As in: keep your head up, and not down looking at the gauges. You only have one head.

Heads-up implies it can give you tips about future events which is not what it’s supposed to do.


I find it annoying when car companies use the wrong term in their official materials.
