In just a short time, automotive displays have progressed from single point LED (light emitting diode) indicators to the very comprehensive electronic displays seen in today's cars. A few examples of milestone events are given, illustrating this rapid progress. Available market penetration data, customer/dealer reactions, and trends related to display technologies selected -- all relevant to the future of these products -- are discussed. Descriptions of selected 1983 and 1984 U.S. production vehicle offerings are also included.
