While BMW makes fantastic driver cars, one thing the manufacturer has been getting a lot of flak for is the instrument console which is now quite long in the tooth. But BMW is all ready to change that and has unveiled its forthcoming digital instrument display.
The new digital gauge cluster will be part of what it calls Operating System 7.0. The system is entirely digital, and it has been tailored to the user's requirements more than ever with customizable and personalized displays. Not only will it offer more information for the driver, but BMW said it will also present the information in a more organized and clearer fashion. It will also support the iDrive Controller, touch control, voice control, and gesture control.
The digital cluster will be able to display various modes like a normal display for everyday driving, an Eco display for fuel economy, and a Sport version with a more-aggressive look that includes a G-meter and other performance-related information.
While BMW hasn’t informed when OS 7.0 will debut, but we expect it to make its entry with the new 8 Series or the X7 SUV.
