    Upgrading the DIC?

    Hey, so I have a 2007 EXT and recently realized the DIC is significantly upgraded in the newer models (features like Instant Fuel Economy, the temperature and direction you're facing constant). Is it possible to upgrade your DIC?

    Yes you can change, has to be coded to your car. This company on Ebay does it

    I was talking more just like a software update, not changing the whole cluster. Is that possible?

    DIC's and the like normally have a build in firmware, it's like with your NAV- yes you can update the maps but there is a firmware built in that cannot be upgraded without directly flashing something or replacing with a newer unit.

    2010 and Above DIC.

    Does the 2010 and above DIC show instantaneous fuel usage while driving. I have a 2009 and it does not. If the Firmware / Software can be upgraded I would be interested.

    I agree.^ I'd be interested in a software upgrade. But, it's also not that important if it requires a costly dash cluster.
