Sorry to be anal, but unless you've got two heads, it's a "head-up display" :-D

Appreciate it, and you're right! I actually looked this up, and learned something new -- while "head-up" is the correct terminology, according to the Wikipedia entry reference, the Oxford Dictionary says that "heads-up" is the common usage in North America:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Head-up_display#References

Which makes sense to me, I've never heard anyone in the US say "head-up" in this context. I think because here, "head's up" is already a common expression for "look up, dummy, something important/dangerous is happening in front of you."
