Since I no longer have a wing I can't really test this.
Maybe someone would like to try.

A company called Sygic makes a GPS app that is designed to reflect in the windshield and give you a cheap headsup display.
I believe there are a few others that do this as well.

The problem is that on the stock windshield, there is a blackened area near the base.
This isn't present on aftermarket screens or it can be removed.
I don't know how much of a distance from the windshield this will work for.
It seems to me that motorcyclists more than cagers need to keep their eyes on the road.

If all it takes is velcroing your smartphone near your windshield on your dash for a headsup display while riding,
it seems to me that this is a win for 2 wheelers.  
HUD integrated GPS in helmet displays are still a year away.

Does anyone feel like experimenting and reporting back?
