BIM Expansion Modules

Dakota Digital is proud to introduce the BIM Expansion modules for Dakota Digital VFD, VHX, HDX and RTX instrument systems. The introduction of the Dakota Digital BIM modules allow you to add up to an additional 16 gauges, that's right we said SIXTEEN specialty gauges to your vehicle without the need to cut extra holes in the dash or installing pillar and pod mounts to your columns or under the dash.

Please note that the BIM modules are only compatible with current VFD, VHX, HDX and RTX control boxes which have a black plastic housing. Older control boxes with metal housings are not compatible with the BIM modules.
