As a top distributor for Dakota Digital, and a huge fan, we are excited to announce this new series of gauges!
Right now, these are a Pre-Order item. They are expected to be ready to ship some models starting in September and October. The app should be ready towards the end of the year.
PRE-ORDER yours now to avoid major delays, back orders, etc.
Here are some key features:
Available with your choice of black or silver alloy gauge-face styling, each HDX system allows the user to select independent illumination colors for the gauge readings and needles, as well as the message centers. Calibration and personal settings are manipulated with the built-in, capacitive-touch buttons, or the available Bluetooth app for Apple and Android devices. Each needle hub is black nickel plated spun-aluminum to match the buttons. All HDX instrument systems feature dead-faced indicators (turn signals, high beam, check engine, cruise control, parking brake, plus two user-definable), and a red, settable warning light for each gauge. With our central control box, installation is greatly simplified with vehicle-harness sourced signals and supplied, solid state sending units connecting cleanly to their respective terminal.
-Wide angle color TFT LCD Message Center(s), offering high brightness and contrast for tremendous visibility
-RGB Color selections; over 30 independent options for needle/backlight/TFT Message Center
-12 combo theme default options available or build your own
-Independent day/night color selections
Face and display:
-Standard dead face indicators, in addition to red warning LEDs for each gauge (except speedometer)
-Spun aluminum needle caps for an extra touch
-On power-up, needles sweep to full scale
-Integrated capacitive touch pushbutton switches, lit for easy identification at night. Control module contains separate switch inputs if remote switches are preferred. Buttons provide up/down menu selections for quick and simple navigation
-Split speedometer scale allows a 160 mph top end, but provides typical driving resolution of a 120mph speedometer
-Turn signal reminder
-Within the Message Center(s), the intuitive home screen displays the Speedometer/Odometer/Trip Odometer/Clock. If purchased separately (BIM-17-2, BIM-01-2, GSS-2000 or GPS-50-2), Compass/Outside Air temp/Gear Position can also be shown
-Beyond the default home screen, three programmable pages exist in a grid format, allowing user to display a wide array of data in each location
Control box, sensors, connections:
-Sensors and main cable include overmolded ends for moisture resistance/strain relief
-Included buzzer, plugs into the back of display head and indicates a button press or a warning point exceeded.
-Two programmable inputs available, giving the user an option to assign a unique display name and priority of how they are displayed/cleared
-In the menu, the user can determine which warning points trigger the warning output, activating the buzzer or separate light, etc.
App, coming in late 2016:
-Bluetooth connection to tablet or smart phone
-Provides ultra-quick setup and calibration, graphically using sliders and radio buttons to view additional information. The app provides real time changes on the gauge system, making setup very intuitive
-Real time gauge readouts function as a diagnostic tool when working outside of the driver’s seat, but also a temporary auxiliary display
-Diagnostic mode provides sensor input details, assisting in troubleshooting a sensor, especially under the hood or away from view of the instrument system
-Remote access to demonstration mode
