Description
This is a minimalist user interface that changes the Adviser panels in the game by adding a bottom info bar and replacing the Navigator screen.
All backgrounds are vector based to give a smooth uniform look.
The interface was created so that you can maintain information on the screen in the smallest format possible without the Navigator screen showing.

The Navigator screen (GPS) has been changed so that it toggles either on or off with F3.
Hit F3 once to show the bottom bar and GPS, hit it again to hide the GPS so that you can use in-dash GPS unobstructed with the bottom bar.

Info panels use the same keybinds as default. F6 for job information. F7 for truck damage status. F8 for info panel. F5 will turn an active info panel off.

The new bottom bar has information shown for (from left to right):
-Running line information
-Mail
-Money
-Truck damage
-Current speed with speeding indicator highlight
-Current gear
-Fuel level
-Fatigue
-Game time
-ETA (now always shown with bar)

Navigation screen:
-Can be hidden independently from the bottom bar (F3)
-Smooth, solid background.

Information panels:
-Relocated to be at steering wheel
-Independent of the Navigation screen
--Unfixable Minor Issue: Navigation screen will not update animation when an information panel is active.
---In-dash GPS is not affected by this issue and will keep animating.

This mod was developed with a single monitor. It may not display correctly if you span multiple screens with the game.
Hemil's mod was used as a partial basis for this mod along with a lot of customization on my end.

Most practical mod by far. Cleans the HUD up; now I can have all my important information at the bottom of the screen while enjoying driving with the interior camera. Small detail Iike: when opening a new "tab" that's not the navigation, it opens it next to the navigation and not on the navigation tab; something the regular game did and what always infuriated me; well done at this point!

I also use it for the KW w900a and don't have issues with it.

@ 1stDoctor1963, do you have the right one installed? Works fine for me.

@ Patrolboy, no issue here with the 579, don't own the other too.

Narrowed a mod conflict down to this mod, when enabled I lose digital dash panel and gps in W900, 680 and 579, not sure if you know as of yet, thank you.

Great mod - thanks! I wanted to see the info from the TA but didn't need a double-up on the GPS display from the one on the dash - perfect solution. Also enables the use of the small hood mirrors on the GTM Kenworth T610.

For some reason, the F3 route adviser shows up on top of the screen but it is supposed to show at steering wheel level. Any thoughts on that?

Thank you, ptr1ck! Your mod is working perfectly in the game's beta version. I appreciate your time and energy.

I just answered your question ghost rider, nothing else.

The mod is updated. I removed old game version compatibility. Mod shouldn't break when game is updated unless they change the UI.
