    a modern "analog" gauge cluster is just stepper motors connected to the CAN bus getting digital data from the ECU and BCM/TCM like everything else in the car; it even usually has a screen of some kind built in
    why not just cut out the middle man and make the whole thing a screen?

      It's ok if it's done with some taste and can do something useful like showing a little map between the gauges.

        cars with HUDs have a special coating on them to reflect the image properly, otherwise you would get double reflections from the image bouncing off of the inside and outside surface of the glass. replacements are expensive and need to be properly calibrated in a shop to keep the image from getting blurry or out of focus.

        i was quoted $2000 if i never needed to replace the windshield in my Kia Stinger just because of the HUD.

    Manufacturers prefer digital because they can update it without hardware revisions between models or even on existing models via software updates. It's also easier to design a day that contains all the information needed for everything they can possibly think of by doing it in software and allowing the display to change based on context instead of trying to account for every single possibility in physical gauges and displays. It's not really that hard to understand.

        that's not true for an increasing number of cars. Some newer cars put the IPC/IPM node as a high priority on the CANbus and it will kill the car. Almost every cluster on todays market has terminating resistors in it that will kill the bus that it's on. There are some cars that route it through a CAN network hub that can survive a dead network on the cluster though. Depends on how lazy the OEM was during design.

            for the sensor to read accurately it needs to be in the water.
            you can develop cavitation or an air pocket at the sensor

    Those "traditional analogue gauges" have been stepper motors driven by a computer for decades now. It's a bit of a stretch calling them analogue or mechanical.
