    Default Installation of touchable display control terminal

    I want to make a kind of display terminal, but I don't know if GS850G can be applied.

    The display terminal can provide speed, power, steering information, and additional information such as RTC clock, heading, ambient temperature, a variety of mileage data, etc. On the user through the touch screen to complete the driving mode and personalized lighting settings, and can automatically turn on the lighting system and other functions.

    Let my GS850G have the same sense of technology as Tesla's display terminal.

    Ambitious sort of fella, aren't you?

    Just make sure it's water(weather)proof and can be used with gloves.

    I've heard about resto-mods, but your GS850 was designed and built a long time before any Tesla.

    Shaved off my neck beard about 15 years ago but have considered doing something similar. I'd bet there's some folks playing around with the Arduino project who have solved a few of these riddles. https://www.arduino.cc/ Then there's Raspberry Pi which my be closer to having an actual working system. https://www.raspberrypi.org/

    cheney, are you just thinking out loud or are you actually going to build this?

    Yes, I have seen some waterproof LCD and non-waterproof LCD, I just have to choose the waterproof one, but the price will be a little expensive.

    The arduino is friendly to amateurs like me, I've fiddled with various microcontrollers and have some familiarity with them all. The Raspberry Pi is a bit more advanced, I've used it and I think maybe I can do it.

    It's still an idea, but I want to make it happen as much as possible. I have checked a lot of information on this, the hardware implementation should be barely doable, the focus is on how to implement the communication between the display and the car, maybe I have to change the car.

    You've got to wonder if hacking one of these could save a guy a lot of time.

    This looks very small and easy to use, can I just program it with arduino? It looks like a normal LCD not sure if it is touch screen capable.
