    Just the dash? Are you referring to gauges, switches, that kind of stuff for the car? Or something just codriver specific, like ODO?

    I can think of a lot of stuff that you might want the codriver to look at / do / need, but a lot of it doesn't need to specifically be on the dash and might not be applicable or possible with your car.

    Mostly I would list things I do not want there: like a tree, a rock, fire, water, anything else the driver might find to crash into.

    Silly seat side of my car has (not necessarily on dash, come to think of it there is no dash over there ) Rally ODO, Oil pressure gauge w dummy light, temp w/ dummy light, foot rest, foot switch for rally odo, door switch for rally odo, foot switch for horn, for hooning for spectators (keeps driver from doing it and ditching car). Pouch for books, snacks, small tools, pencils etc. Small fuse block for interior items that codriver can sort on stage if things go wonky. Red lens navi light.

    A lot of navigators (most) have a cool watch and will time your stage with their watch as a backup method for spotting issues with time cards that could happen.

    you could have a stop watch over there.. but depending on the navi they most likely have that covered. if not they are probably newer and may not be ready to also try and time your stage.


    Oh camera controls (if/when applicable)
    did someone already say wiper switch?
    Bribe to get pulled out by a competitor ?
