The Multimedia Cockpit of the new Arocs consisting of two digital displays replaces the classic instrument cluster and supplements the switch control panel in the dashboard. The high-resolution primary colour display behind the steering wheel clearly shows all the vehicle information plus driving and operating statuses. If an implement or mounted body is in operation, this is shown symbolically by indicator lamps in the primary display. In addition, pop-up windows can give the driver warnings, and up to ten messages can be configured. The pop-ups consist of a symbol and an information text. Potential messages might be “Transmission fault in the vehicle body”, “Fault in the trailer coupling”, “Body oil temperature too high” or “Body service required”.
