    help: building a digital cluster w/ navigation

    i would like to have someone build a digital dash with the added benefit of a navigation. heres an image to help. but instead of having some jerk displayed id like to have navigation in the spot

    here are the gauges i would need to have work.....speedo/tach/fuel/a/f ratios/boost/oil temp and pressure/water temp/volts air temp would be cool to but not needed like the rest of the gauges. am i missing any....if possible id like some of the gauges combined like this
    the a/f and the boost, volts and water, oil temp/pressure. i know sensors would be needed to monitor the data and i can buys those but i have no idea what program to use to interpret the new sensors. if this sounds like something your interested in let me know and we can work on a price. i thank you for all help generated.

    Hey, that's my design

    I changed it again, but this version ain't to bad - will probably end up doing it for my UTE after all, but I will need to use an OS such as WinCE, which is a fair bit quicker than WinXP/Embedded (hopefully)

    The watermark you see in the AFR/Boost is one I skinned in, it's the Official FPV(Ford Perfomance Vehicles Australia's) logo

    Keep us posted, interesting idea you have.

    Can someone tell me if the new hi-series Mondeo has a screen in the Cluster like this?

    It sounds like someone will have to put something together.

    I came across one of these not that long ago - which struck me as a useful system for developing a Cluster Replacement system. It even has 2 x CAN bus inputs.

    Then again, I wonder if this is just the basis for Ford Sync?

    Nice find, Lukey Small and compact, and the ideal thing to drive a digital instrument cluster ok, maybe we need 2 of those, but, at the right price, it will be worthwhile!

    Can you send me your email addy via PM, I redone my PC, and need to set up msn again.

    Kind regards,
    MrBean.
