    it's all in good fun, don't take it the wrong way OP

    but getting back on topic, there is a couple threads around here that talk specifically about what you want to do, there's even a guy that converted his analog dash to digital using 2 7" lcds, just search and you'll find them

    OK if you want to do a speedometer that is digital then it is very easy, in fact if it is in roadrunner you can just use the speed label.

    However if you want to recreate the analogue dial type then you really need to use flash. In fact There are some flash speedometers already done for roadrunner.


    or can you give us a more detailed idea of what you want. Including pics seeing as you say you can do the graphics

    here is the concept i made. you guy got the ideas i want to do. as i stated above. how do i code the gpss peed when the car moving the number goes up and gps lock and artist. its just a scratch. the final skin will be black back ground and things in it place perfectly.

    You don't need to write any code for making this screen. You just need to make the graphics with the empty space for the speed/sat count and then learn how to use the skin editor. You'll basically be adding a label with the code "GPSSPD" and another label with the code "GPSSAT" -- you'll be able to choose the size, font and color for the label to display.

    To learn about the skin editor and skinning you should read those threads (it's actually very simple once you get the hang of it):

    I don't think 04wrx was aware that RR has built in GPS capability.
