The 2020 Buick Encore GX is an all-new addition to the Buick lineup and it thus features a number of new technologies that some buyers may not be familiar with. To help these new owners out, the automaker recently released a number of helpful how-to videos explaining how to use and take advantage of the various features on offer in the new compact premium crossover – the latest of which covers the head-up display.
This piece of technology used to be limited to expensive luxury cars, but not anymore. The 2020 Buick Encore GX may start at well under $30,000, but it is available with a head-up display as part of the $1,935 Advanced Technology Package. Buyers who tick the box for this package will also receive an eight-inch Buick infotainment system with navigation, camera-based adaptive cruise control, rear park assist and HD surround vision, but let’s stay focused on the head-up display for now.
If equipped, the head-up display controls in the 2020 Buick Encore GX will be located on the switch panel to the left of the driver. Pressing and holding the middle switch upward will open the head-up display screen, while pressing it down will allow flipping through the various display options, which include vehicle speed, engine speed, audio/phone information and navigation directions. The height/location of the display information can also be adjusted on the screen with the ‘HUD’ tab located furthest to the left, while the switch closest to the driver controls the display brightness.
GM makes a point to tell owners to never open or close the head-up display screen with their hands and to always use the switch located to the left of the driver, though we’re sure many readers already know this.
