A large TFT display lets you expand upon the six analog gauge readings, all installing in to your stock or reproduction bezel; repop chrome pieces are available separately, as is the HLC clock. Not to be used alone, the HLC is the perfect complement to the bolt-in HDX system.

Available with your choice of black or silver gauge-face styling, each HDX system allows the user to select independent illumination colors for the gauge readings and needles, as well as the message centers. Calibration and personal settings are manipulated with the built-in, capacitive-touch buttons, or the available Bluetooth app for Apple and Android devices. Each needle hub is black nickel plated spun-aluminum to match the buttons. All HDX instrument systems feature dead-faced indicators (turn signals, high beam, check engine, cruise control, parking brake, plus two user-definable), and a red, settable warning light for each gauge. With our central control box, installation is greatly simplified with vehicle-harness sourced signals and supplied, solid state sending units connecting cleanly to their respective terminal. 

*Bezel not included, shown for visual/presentation purposes.
System uses OEM or reproduction style bezel.

* Instrument system eliminates the stock automatic gear shift indicator immediately above steering column. To display gear position, add GSS-2000 Gear Shift Sensor (sold separately)

Lighting Technology


Colors
 ·Over 30 user-selectable color options allow you to independently change the needle color, sweep color and digital TFT display color.

Brightness
 ·Both daytime and nighttime brightness can be easily controlled through the HDX setup menu, allowing you to choose your preferred lighting intensity level, toggled by the activation of the headlight switch. If on-the-fly rotary type control is desired, the DIM-1 is a common accessory to add this functionality.

Themes
 ·With 12 factory preset color themes, you can quickly create a beautiful looking system. Or, for the ultimate in customization, choose all of the color zones yourself.

Technology
 ·Full LED backlighting provides a strikingly visual gauge package, with sharp contrast for ease of viewing both night and day. Full RBG backlighting allows you to create the specific color you want, with a unique daytime and nighttime theme if desired. Whether your goal is an OE look or something truly bold, the HDX Series lets you make that choice.

Included Sensors

sHDX Specs GM (bottom)

Water Temperature
 ·1/8" NPT, ground isolated sensor with a 10 ft harness.

Oil Pressure
 ·1/8" NPT solid state sensor with a 10 ft harness.

Cable Driven Speed Sensor/ Generator
 ·Replaces GM style speedometer cables with a 10 ft harness. Sensor requires approximately 5" clearance extending between the cable drive output and any obstruction. Part # 130011 (sold separately) allows for relocation of the pulse generator when additional clearance is required. (Tremec and Ford style adaptors available on request.)

 ·Each kit comes with 1/8" to 1/4", 3/8" and 1/2" NPT bushings along with bushings for 12mm and 16mm x 1.5 threads.

Control Box Dimensions
5.5" x 3.5"x 1"

Calibration and Use


Pushbutton Control
 ·All HDX Series Instrument Systems include LED-lit onboard capacitive touch pushbuttons through the gauge face. These pushbuttons provide quick and consistent access to all functions, either in driving mode or while in the setup menu. Button-press feedback is available through the TFT Message Center, or through the included buzzer. Additionally, remote mounted switches can be wired into the HDX system if this proves more accessible based upon seating position. The HDX Series can also be completely configured through the Bluetooth app, suitable to Android and Apple devices. Using your existing tablet or smart phone, download the free app, sync your device to the HDX system, and enjoy quick and convenient menu navigation and real time gauge readouts for diagnostic use or a secondary display.

Calibration
 ·All calibration settings are handled through onboard capacitive touch switches or the remote Bluetooth app. While many calibration settings exist, the speedometer and fuel level are completed in most cases (unless GPS-50-2 is used, negating the need to calibrate the speedometer) through a few taps of the pushbuttons and a short test drive of the vehicle.
