I guess the days for analog dashboard panels will be over sometime in the near future, as the hybrid Crown from Toyota already features a full LCD meter panel. These meters and the LCD panel were joint-developed by Denso Corp. and Sharp Corp., respectively. The meter panel ain’t too shabby at 12.3″ in size, featuring a resolution of 1,280 x 480, boasting an operating temperature range that lies between -30 to +85°C. Guess that’s pretty hardy to last just about anywhere you park on this earth. Finally, meter colors can be changed according to one’s whims and fancies, while the meter frames are color coded so that you know whether you’re in “sports mode” or “eco mode”.
