mini post show a guide on how to use NCS Dummy to enable digital speed dispay
in the instrument cluster.

A frequently requested feature is a digital speed display in the instrument
cluster. On certain BMW models like the E60 5 Series and E89 3 Series this
just happens to very easy to enable. Function keyword °∞BC_DIGITAL_V°± in the
instrument cluster controls this feature.

Read  the FSW_PSW.TRCtrace  file 
from  the  instrument 
cluster  with  NCS 
Expert (see Reading FSW_PSW.TRC and NETTODAT.TRC trace files)and
launch NCS Dummy.

1.Set the chassis.
2.Set the module.
3.Load the trace file either by clicking the °∞Browse°≠°± button, dragging
the file to the textbox or,quicker, by choosing °∞Load FSW_PSW.TRC°± from the
button dropdown menu.
4.Go to function °∞BC_DIGITAL_V°± in the graphical trace editor. You can
make use of the powerful find functionality (CTRL+F or magnifier button) to
quickly locate keywords in the trace file. The function has parameter

5.Export your changes to the FSW_PSW.MAN trace manipulation file for NCS
Expert: Click the °∞Export FSW/PSW°± button and select °∞Export FSW_PSW.MAN°±

Finally code the FSW_PSW.MAN trace manipulation file back to the instrument
cluster with NCS Expert (see  Coding
modules with FSW_PSW.MAN trace manipulation file) and you are done.A simple
change like this could be done with a plain text editor as well, but NCS
Dummy makes the process easier, quicker and safer. For more advanced changes
a plain text editor no longer suffices and NCS Dummy is the only way to
achieve your goals. In fact, NCS Dummy allows you to achieve things that are
otherwise simply impossible with NCS Expert! A more advanced example is given
in the next chapter.
