    Thank you for your feedback.
    We have been looking further into this project and have come to the following preliminary decision:

    We will offer two different versions:

    Version 1: With OELD Display with Alpha Numerical Display (no graphics) which is UV resistant and operates from -40C to +80C and no Communications
    Version 2: With Analog Gauges and Meters, no Communications

    Both units will be a direct replacement and will take over both units CIM and A5 - All connections currently on A5 (i.e. J20, J17, J23, J25 etc) are going to connect directly to our System

    The two primary obstacles are the consist availability and pricing of the analog meters and gauges and for Version 1 would be to find a OLED large enough in resolution

    The estimated sales price for either of the Versions will be around US$ 800 to US$ 900

    This is pretty much the lowest we can go and provide a reliable, high quality, USA made System
    Sincerely

    Peter

    If you can get a deliverable product at that price, I believe it will be quite successful, but as a manufacturer myself... for what it is, and the captive nature of the product, I do believe your target price point could be higher, without being considered outrageous.
