ACtually, im thinking this would probably be a better starting point, as If I am clever with the way the screen displays data, I wont need 4 lines (ie, selected tank gauge showing, rather than both gauges at once etc)

The wonderful thing about lights and dials is that you do not consciously need to "read" them.


Absolutely. You can glance at an entire wall of "oldfashioned" meters and tell at a glance if there is a problem. With digital displays you have to look at the numbers and figure out what they mean. It is the same with watches are you analogue or a digital person?

Both. Analogue hands for the time, with a digital display for other info. I much prefer analogue speedometers in cars, over digital.

My bike has a digital speedo. I like it fine.

Thanks for the link to the "project".
