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?

I use my phone's GPS with a Ram mount on the handlebar left screw. I put a cigarette lighter socket under the seat hooked up to my battery and run a USB cord from there under the seat coming out the front middle of the seat to the phone. For me it works good. I used my dremel to cut a notch under the front of the seat lip so the cord wouldn't get pinched. Like I said, it works for me.

I bought a surface-mounting socket (BMW-type),bolted it to the lid of the LH cubby and ran a wire to the 12v socket in the cubby through the hole I drilled .
I know US Silverwings don't come with the socket but I think one from a Goldwing fits.
There are clear pictures of it in my Album.
It worked for me.
