Say am I the only one who looks at our WAY COOL LCD speedometer and thinks "wow wouldn't it be cool to be able to display a GPS system, and other things, there? Laptop interface?

Thanks,
Dickson

I agree it seems like some smart Electrical/Computer person could figure out how to add stuf to our little screen.

I would like to see an added interface with:
GPS
Thermometer
Tach
Tire Pressure

and if you could please - mpg.

oh and please put the toggle switch where my thumb can reach it without wandering far from my grip...

Thank you.... I'll be waiting

Between RefValk and myself we could come up with something. But, it would not be cheap. The original LCD display appears to be special and not a computer screen. The easiest way to add integrated electronics would be to scrap the original LCD display and replace it with a palm pilot type screen. Then, run software to coordinate what is being shown, doing the calculations for fuel economy etc.

You are looking at $2,000+ to design and build a low rate production.

I think that for now I will continue investigating eloptic energy sensors rather than 'strument up my Rune. :shock:

Heck

Ken,

You spent almost half that on your matching spots. While expensive I still think it would be cool to be able to view and use other functions through our onboard screen. Eloptic? Ah joke LOL.
