As most of you probably know, I have already tried hard convincing Motec AU & Motec USA to work on the new C1212 display for the GTR. More info on this in HERE.
However without success, or plan to support the project thus far from Motec although Darren expressed great interest. I decided to try work on this project on my own after I commission my big boy build. Shooting for end of the year time frame to have a working prototype.
The costs are going to be high for developing this kit from the ground up as well as the display graphics, which to look good will require considerable custom work tailored for the GTR. There are several parts that will need to be worked to get it working flawlessly as Darren have pointed out to me briefly what needs to be done to have a 100% OE replacement display. To note, there has been few projects and there are few projects for integrating the Motec displays with the GTR, however none of which are true 100% replacement suitable for everyday street driving that addresses all OE circuits, replicate OE I/O, sensors, signals and display all the needed information.
C1212 is more cost effective and uses a regular connector where the C1812 uses an expensive race grade connector that is going to be very costly to make the loom for.
I plan to start a Go Fund Me once I receive my car back and use it as the test car for the kit. Meanwhile I would like to get some feedback on what information do you guys like to be displayed if you were interested in such kit?
Here are some generic templated to give you an idea. You can customize the display anyway you want to. You can also create multiple pages (Im not sure how many) so that you can flip for Racing mode and Street mode. The display is large 12" and is of high resolution (1280x480).
