I have no experience with Raspberry PI but am aware of its concept and have had friends explain how it works.
I would love to setup a Raspberry Pi to replace a motorbike dashboard in its entirety. The plan is a 7 inch LCD connected directly to the PI. It is my understanding that this type of display will show the OS and the Gui (should I choose to have X windows running).
The idea is to have the screen display all paremeters, including
Indicator lights, oil pressure lights etc.
use it to control various electrical items on the bike with its GPIO pins.
Is this something that is theoretically possible? I understand that using a large 7 inch LCD essentially means I have to code a program to display these values, as opposed to using a 16x4 LCD display or a Nokia 5110 LCD display, where coding is much easier.
Is this something that is possible
Thanks in advance!
