The NS1 Gauge System that I've been working on for the last couple is finally nearing completion. I currently have just a few things left, like ordering the decals for the indicator lights at the top of the gauge, and generating the map data that will be bundled with the gauge system.

NS1 Gauge System - Next Stage Gauges

The app that runs on the gauge system is actually designed to run on any Android device. This means that I can let folks try and test the app even before they have the actual NS1 Gauge System hardware. You can find the app in the Google Play Store by searching for NS1 Dashboard:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nextstagegauges.tabletgaugeprototype

I've only tested it with large smartphone sized screens and larger. It is intended to work well on 7" screens, so on smaller devices you may find things are smaller or sized strangely. If you find a problem with the app please let me know. It's fairly well tested, but I'm sure there is a bug or two that needs to be ironed out still.

I have a manual for the gauge system, but it is a bit outdated, and the images of the gauge system are of the beta testing version, which has changed a bit for production.
https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnxkZWx1eGVnYXVnZXNvZnR3YXJlcmVmbGFzaHxneDo1YjZmMzJiMjQ1ZDc1ZTE4

A summary of the important instructions are:
-Swipe down from the top of the screen to bring up the Android navigation menus and buttons that are hidden when the app launches.
-The arrows on the left and right side of the screen allow you to change between 5 screens.
-The three squares at the top right brings up the main menu for the gauge system.
-You can configure a gauge face by touching the area you want to place the gauge for longer than 1 second, but less than 3 seconds. This is done so that clearing snow off and that water droplets on the screen won't activate menus.

Below are pictures of what is pretty much the final version of the hardware. The stickers for the indicator lights aren't on yet, but otherwise this should be pretty exactly how the NS1 Gauge System will look:







The Polaris mounting hardware uses a backing plate to mount the brackets that hold the display. The backing plate goes over the hole where the stock Polaris gauge normally is.

Looks good ! I'm going to down load the app on my tablet and play with it a bit. I'll PM you with any questions I have once I've got it loaded and played with it a bit.

I think I mentioned this to you before.... do you know if there will be any compatibility issues with the ViPEC I run ? Haven't had any previously with any of the re-flashed gauges I've had you do.....so guessing no....

I get "no results found for NS1 Dashboard" when I search google play store
Try seaching for NS1 Gauge System, or just NS1. The app's name is NS1 Dashboard, but it is called NS1 Gauge System in Google Play Store. I will fix that tonight.

any update on these yet????
I've started initial production and I will be taking pre-orders once I have pictures of the final version of it posted on the website, which should be by the end of next week.

I just replaced the bed coating on the 3D printer I use to make a lot of parts. There were some bubbles trapped under the old coating, and those bubbles made the parts cosmetically unacceptable on one side. Now that the bed coating is replaced the parts I'm making now are final version quality, and suitable for pictures on the website.

I'm a huge fan of making sure people can see exactly what they are buying. :)

Are you going to haydays?? will you be flashing
I won't be at Haydays this year since I unfortunately have a conflict. I will however be running the usual sale around Haydays, which is $89 for the standard reflash, and $109 for the AFR/Boost version reflash. That includes return shipping.

People that are local have the option of dropping the gauge off to avoid shipping it to me. Send me a PM if you are interested in doing that.

Any chance of doing this on the 6000?

Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
I will be testing support for the 6000 and the sleds with Yamaha motors early this winter. The actual electronics of the NS1 have been tested with those vehicles, it just needs additional software and the mounting hardware.

Also, an updated version of the NS1 Dashboard app is published that includes the current set of pre-loaded maps.
