    GIPRO_X (gear indicator) => What color?

    Have decided to buy a Healtech Gipro-X gear indicator...

    I just can't seem to figure out which of the 5 available colors that would suit my FZ6 best => Help/Vote!?
    My FZ6 is the non-faceliftet model with bluish ligthing.

    As far as I have read there the brigtness of the Gipro-X display is either auto or maybe manually adjustable.
    https://www.healtech-electronics.com...ts/gipro/gpxt/
    (scrool down and cycle through the images to view the 5 colors).

    Tried to watch some youtube videos with FZ6+Gipro but only few with my kind of dash.

    I went for white and am quite happy with it, red I thought was ok but a bit old hat now, the other colours seemed to be a bit garish for my taste.

    I think you are right... I would never get tired of white!

    Re: GIPRO_X (gear indicator) => What color?

    I would pick a color that has the least interference with vision at night. This would help with your straight ahead vision which is paramount at night. We've all probably heard about using red light for night vision and although there has been some controversy over this of late it turns out that there is a probable advantage to using red light. I recently bought a lighter socket USB charger with voltage readout for my bike and chose red color because of the advantage at night. Then again it might be predicated on the amount of lumen being projected as apposed to light frequency.

    Because of our protective disadvantage on a bike I like to think we should do all we can in regard to safety to gain any advantage we might.https://www.itstactical.com/intellic...-night-vision/

    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    Re: GIPRO_X (gear indicator) => What color?

    I have a blue gear indicator.
    Main reason is because apart form the hi beam indicator, there is nothing else blue on the dash or in the immediate surrounds. It is clear in daylight and at night, I havn't changed( didn't think I could) the brightness and it seems to be equally viewable in both day and night situations.GIPRO_X (gear indicator) => What color?-clutch-cable-clip-jpg

    you can just see the gear indicator under my speedo so it is out of most direct sunlight most of the time!

    Re: GIPRO_X (gear indicator) => What color?

    My "1st gen" dash is kind of blue-ish, so I was thinking that maybe another blue type color was too much?

    There isn't a really good spot to pyt the gear indicator like on AGF's 2.gen FZ6 - it will be easier to think of something once I finally order and recieve the Gipro.
    Most likely the indicator will end up just left of the instrument cluster.

    Still unsure about color... must make a descision later today
