:wiggle::wiggle: My Touchscreen Speedometer Build :wiggle::wiggle:

Okay, so Im back again to tear up my Celica and try out some more ideas. This time i wanted to convert my speedometer gauge to more of a digital look.

Check My build vids on this project:

Part 1(obvious where I start the idea process)- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6L9cUbWXAyI
Part 2(this is where i tear down the gauge cluster to fit the screen and build the frame) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ym3MRFHDOhw
Part 3(i have built the frame not its time to test it out) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0xc3zCLycg
Part 4(FINALE) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O50S1x6aioc


So initial of course i had to break down my gauge cluster




The only part i had to save was the actual odometer piece, because i need to save the mileage and the speed sensor is built in there.

Fitting in was obviously a challenge solved by Mr.Dremel




Once i got that in there, i could start taking the monitor apart. The circuit board of the monitor and the controller for the touchscreen fit beautifully inside my cluster and since I was making my own turn signals i drilled in some LEDS as well





Everything fits niceeee





So now i just need to build the frame using the bezel of the monitor into the bezel for the gauges







put em all together and what do you have?

Arent you worried that there will be some signifficant lag in readings? How are u going to obtain the information from the vehicle?
Looks interesting tho, i will follow with interest!

Best regards, George Iliev

awesome. Had the same idea once, never had the time to do it. I thought back then to get readings from OBDII if that was possible, where do you get the readings from?

Awesome work!! This looks promising. Love the LFA theme. Would definitely like to see a bit faster bootup time for those times when you need to get up and go. What OS are you running?

one thing more: What are you going to do with the 45-50 seconds of boot time?
I'd hate to have to wait 1 minute for my car to pwer up her gauges, so i can start driving ...

Ditto.




And when your driving around, I see that your shifting. But on your speedometer, can you program it so it'll show what gear your in instead of staying in "N" , neutral?

I done everytime next to overclocking. Thats probably the longest youll see it boot. I upgraded to a Solid state drive and i could be happier with the boot time. Itll be booted before i reach the end of my neighborhood. yu dont notice 30secs when you dont really rely on your gauges to move the car

Off to a good start so far! I think it just needs to be sanded down a little more to look smoother.
