The world is changing fast, as is the technology that supports it. VIZR has realized this and is offering a new alternative for the standard GPS and other car-related features. VIZR wants to offer their customers a product that will get them where they want to go in a safe and effective method.
They do this by creating devices that require zero hands-on and have the ability to read your car and offer explanations as to why some of the problems are occurring.
There are two main products that are offered by VIZR: the actual VIZR product and their secondary product, FIXD. VIZR is the main product that is offered by the company and is the GPS system that was being talked about earlier.
Essentially, it’s a bluetooth device that sits on the dashboard of your car and allows you to view your GPS trip without taking your eyes off the road and without obstructing your vision. The actual device is a small, transparent screen that displays your route, as well as a small tech piece where you can lay your phone down. It connects to your phone via an app that is free for iOS and Android.
The second product that they offer is something called FIXD. This is a little box that plugs into your car, reads some of the car’s information, and sends a status report to your phone. It’ll be able to tell you things like how much gas if left, why your check engine light is on, and the overall wellbeing of the tech aspects of your car.
How Does it Work?
The process is pretty simple. When you buy the VIZR, you download the app and link the two. Once this is done, you set the device on your dashboard and use it like your average GPS. For the FIXD, the device comes with a little knob that you plug into the corresponding USB plug in your car. This will send the updates to the app on your phone.
Cost and Price Plans
The cost of the two devices depends on how many you’re buying. They are as follows:
- One VIZR: $55 Canadian, plus shipping and handling.
- Two VIZR’s (+1 Free): $109.35 Canadian, plus shipping and handling.
- Three VIZR’s (+2 Free): $164.30 Canadian, plus shipping and handling.
When you buy a VIZR, you will be given the option for buying the FIXD as well for a price of $47.92 Canadian, plus applicable taxes. If you want to buy the FIXD device individually, you will need to contact the company directly and try and sort something out. Keep in mind that this does not have a set shipping or handling fee, so be vigilant.

The overall impression of VIZR is very positive. People who have used the products find that it doesn’t obstruct their driving, disables them from using their phones while driving, and has a display method that provides you with everything you may need all in one. Many customers comment on how the system is also reliable and removes a lot of the distance lag that people usually experience with GPS’s.
The only real complaint was that the money back guarantee is short compared to other companies. For VIZR, you have 30 days to make a return and get a full refund. However, with most companies, this time window is about 60 days.
Competitors and Alternatives
Like every area of business, there are always alternatives and competition. Below are listed three companies that offer the same style of products as VIZR.
Garmin - Garmin offers the same kind of products, but more on the personal gadget side of things. It offers watched and wristbands that track things like your heartbeat, music, steps, and time of day. They are, in essence, a VIZR but for your personal self.
Kivic - Kivic offers a product that is very similar to VIZR. Their products include transparent dash display devices that act as a GPS, but also as your literal phone. After hooking your phone up, you’ll be able to access things such as your maps, messages, music, and social media from the HUD display device. It connects via an app and is supported on most, if not all, iOS and Android devices.
HUDWAY Cast - HUDWAY also offers a product that is very similar to VIZR. While more expensive than VIZR, it offers the same benefits and more. Essentially, the HUD allows you to use any app on your smartphone, including social media, internet, music, messages, and phone. Essentially, it is your phone displayed in front of you. It supports all smartphones that use iOS or Android.
Where to Buy?
The only licensed place to buy VIZR is on their official website. Reselling VIZR products isn’t a popular practice for many online or in-store businesses, so if buying product from somewhere other than the main website, remain vigilant as it can’t be guaranteed that the product is legit.
Overall, VIZR is a company that wants to make your driving experience safer and more affordable. They recognize that using hands free devices can cost a lot of money as companies are tapping into the untouched market, so they want to make sure you have the cheapest alternative possible.
1 ‘VIZR’ Review
i ordered 3 VIZRs as gifts in November. Two of them came back to me recently, as one person soon got a car with GPS and never used it. The other preferred Waze on the phone.
Two days ago I contacted VIZR telling them the situation, wanting to return 2 and get a refund. The repeated response has been:
We have two warranty policies.
1) If you are unhappy with the product for any reason, you have 30 days to return it - no questions asked.
2) We offer a one-year replacement warranty for the VIZR itself. If there is any defect with the device, we will send you another one free of charge.”
Clearly this does not work for me. I said I would publish their bad customer service and inflexibility and that’s what I am doing.
