With more manufacturers turning away from analog gauges in favor of LCD instrument panels, it was only a matter of time before an aftermarket company came up with a screen of its own. Enter the ID4Motion MotionGraphic Design Digital Cluster. Using car-specific hardware, the screen can tap into your vehicle's systems with either a CAN-BUS or analog connection to display everything from engine and vehicle speed to pertinent system warnings and fuel capacity in a more attractive manner. The device boasts a 10.1-inch color display with 1280x800 resolution and a suite of tech goodies.

Those include a G force meter as well as a timer odometer matched to your vehicle. More importantly, user and vehicle information is encoded to prevent tampering from outside parties. The Design Digital Cluster can even be configured to show off a company logo should you so desire. How much will it cost you? ID4Motion isn't saying, but the company will gladly quote you a price depending on your application. Check it out in action below or head over to the ID4Motion site for more information.

      Simply terrible. That spinning speedometer is a freaking joke how you have to follow it around in circles for seconds at a time. Pathetic attempt. There needs to be a beginning point and an end point on a graphic display to make it usable at a glance. Heck, even a simple digital readout of the MPH is a thousand times better than what they came up with.

      A high resolution 10" display with all that space, let's use an itty bitty font.

      I get the intent but I feel the speedometer wouldn't work well in the real world. Part of the "convenience " of current dials is that you can have some sort of an idea of what speeds you're traveling, simply by what portion of the dial the needle is pointing. With this, you'd have to physically look down and FOCUS on the numbers since 5 MPH, 65 MPH, and 125 MPH all occupy the exact same space on the dial. Of course, you'd never confuse the three speeds when driving, but I'm sure most people don't have to really focus on their speedo to know about where the needle is pointing, simply from their peripheral vision.

      No. That's as bad as a touchscreen console. Nothing will ever beat a lever or knob that you can use without looking at it. The looping speed readout is weird and numbers that change are small. I need to see it out of the corner of my eye or just a quick glance to see what's what.

      That's nice and all but from a usability perspective, it sucks to have the speed reading wheel change. 65 is in the same place as 5mph. It's visually confusing.

      decent graphics and all...but that speedo meter is just strange, as Dwight Bynum Jr. said. so i still prefer stock gauges of my '70 GS455 because they are more easy to read.

      Wont work well, because if I'm going on a speedrun, I wouldn't have time to look at the dash and read what my current speed is. With current needles on a fixed dial, just a glimpse can tell me what my approximate speed/RPM is.

        @Shiva Singh
        Exactly... I was thinking the same thing about the speedometer.

      The problem is, OEM's add all that Star Wars stuff and then neglect to include a simple temperature gauge.
      • 2 Years Ago
      Pretty cool but the speedometer needs to be ditched for a more traditional setup so you can easily tell how fast your going with nothing more than a quick glance. An adjustable top speed for the gauge would be cool though, that way you don't end up with a gauge that reads up to 200mph in an SUV or something lol. A digital MPH/KPH readout would be nice too.

      Cool but there needs to be a digital speedo in the middle (much like the CR-Z) http://www.cartype.com/pics/7858/full/honda-cr-z-sport-hybrid-coupe_cluster2_11.jpg

      or... it could just be this easy? http://img100.imageshack.us/img100/843/sergiomotecprovavf7.jpg I mean really. Who the F comes up with this garbage. Why does the future have to be so gimmicky. Can't it just be more functional? Faster, better, etc. Not omg look how I re-invented the wheel and made it uglier and more likely to crash.
