  • Instrument Panel Display Options?

    I tried a search but couldn't find a thread with pictures of the Instrument panel display options available on the C8 Since it's all digital I suspect the ability to toggle between imperial and metric is built in so we will no longer see a 330 KMH display for speed on Canadian cars?

    1972 Yellow Convert with removable HT - enjoyed it for 4 years and joined by:
    1976 Orange Coupe - didn't use it much and sold after 12 years
    2000 Yellow Convertible - new C5 caught my attention and loved it for 15 years
    2015 Silver Z51 Convertible - replaced C5 with C7 then traded for GS after 2 years
    2017 Torch Red Grand Sport Convertible - still here and LOVING it

    John put together a great comparison of the display modes in this thread. I haven't seen a screenshot with metric units yet, but with GM hoping for more international sales than previously, I'm sure they've paid more attention to SI units this time around.

    Hope this helps!

    Edit: By the way, 330 km/h is not far off the C7's actual top speed, especially for the Z-06.

        Even plain Jane economy cars with digital displays allow switching between US and metric displays, so I'm sure the C8 will. GM intends to sell the car worldwide, and it's probably cheaper to build and test one set of software for worldwide use than one version for the US and one for everywhere else.

          I'm almost embarrassed to admit this, but.... We have programable screens in several of our cars. The one in our C7 really has the most variety/flexibility in terms of the things you want to see. Being the 'old guy' that I am, once they set it up in the Museum when we took delivery, I've never changed it! Sooo much for having all that flexibility. Actually, to be honest, I have muddled around on a few occasions with it. That's because either I or my wife had accidentally pressed 'something' and it changed.... So much for my grasp of technology.

            Been this way for the C7 and the C6, so I too think they would not go “backwards” and eliminate that standard feature.

              Thanks - I'm sure there will be a simple toggle in one of the mode setting to show metric.

                So, does that big 12 inch tv/infotainment screen fold down and slide into the dash to be unseen when not needed? It's an eyesore if it's sticking up there all the time.. Take a look at the Ferrari 488 and new F8 Tributo, the McClaren GT dashes. They're nice and clean without the in your face electronic screens hiding the flowing lines of the dashes.

                  It does not fold nor slide at all. Sorry.

                  Guess we disagree. When you sit in the car, it is pointed perfectly at the driver. It does not stick up above the dash (even its outside, right corner is not above the top of the dash as the dash keeps sloping upward going toward the windshield). I did not find it ugly, but tastefully integrated. It’s functionality for the driver, due to its placement, is going to be a joy.

                    I would suggest you sit behind the wheel in this “cockpit” and then judge if it still looks “to big” or out of place. That’s a personal choice that’s yours alone and that’s OK.
                    My take on the 488,F8,and McClaren comparison is this..those designers made their screens disappear because for $300 to $500k purchase price they couldn’t make a screen that was perfectly integrated and they had to make it disappear . Just my opinion but the MFD (multi function display -that’s hippo Jet cockpit talk*) is a fantastic design that allows one to just move your eyes with a quick side glance to get what information you want from that screen keeping you focused out front.

                      Thanks for the feedback John and V1 VR. Yup, I'm gonna have to check it out. Not going to be a deal breaker. Been waiting too long for this model.
                      Have a great day!

                        Unless you resemble Peter Drinklage, this image shows that the screen is not an issue to a normal sized person sitting in the car. I am 5' 10" tall.
