Looking good. That display is right up my Straße and I'd be in the market for one.

I finally made some progress over the week end.
After many 3d print trials, I have finally found a way to hold the display in place securely on the dashboard. And this won't require any modification to the original parts.

Now, my prototype is ready to go in the motorcycle.

Nice work Buzz90. If I still had an 1100S, I'd order one without hesitation.

You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

This looks GREAT!
I shall do some more reading but it looks like it will fill a gap on my project
(1100GS and I dont think to use the normal RID as I am re-wiring the whole thing)
Thanks!

Thanks for all your kind comments.
Sorry for the lack of recent news. After a few weeks of use, I'm working to improve the displayed information.
I shall try to improve direct sunlight readability as well, but that would sacrifice to the global integration of the module...

Since the last news, the hardware has nearly not evolved (apart from the AR lens).
The software however has changed a lot and especially the display layout.
I mainly wanted the voltage and oil temperature information to be more visible.
I have worked on the logic for the adaptative brigthness and a few other features, but I'll show that in an incoming video.
Let me know if you have remarks on the UI or wishes.
