I wonder if there are any ultra wide LCD screens that would be about the right size to replace a stock analog gauge cluster. Could layer it with a touch sensitive layer for changing settings and such (while stopped only).

I personally would rather have like a bar graph or similar to indicate speed with the digital readout near it. Kind of like the rpm gauge in the bottom right of this stock cluster from the early 90's. The biggest thing is the concept, could have more info displayed in an easier to understand format. With GPS it could record hills and such too.

you could use a tablet besure to remove the battery though don't want that popping in the summer time
