    That's great. Let us know how easy it was to gain the additional Driver Information Center features with just that panel.

    Got the D.I.C. yesterday and put it on today. Very simple and had it installed in less than 10 minutes!! Works great.

    What is cool....their is an instant fuel economy that shows the cylinder mode at the same time. It is neat to see the V8, V6 and V4 modes and then see the fuel economy too.

    What really pisses me off is there is actually a socket molded on the back of the original panel for the D.I.C. connector to rest in with no buttons. It is actully plugged into it awaiting simply enough for the buttons. You would think that for all the effort to add the wiring harness the buttons would just be standard equipment. Sad...so sad GM is that greedy.

    Default Driver Information Center for 2008 trailblazer

    Do any of you know if a Driver Information Center is available for 2008 Trailblazer? I purchased the vehicle without one, and am having trouble locating one.
    Thanks for your help.

    It is available, not sure if it's plug-and-play though like on the silverado. it might be. Try calling down to the dealership and see.

    My 2008 SIlverado LT Z71 didn't come with the driver info center either. The parts guy at my dealer didn't know what I was talking about when I told him I wanted to order it. he couldn't believe that my $32k truck didn't come with it.

    All-in-all it cost me $150 installed and I love it!! It keeps me reminded of the terrible gas mileage I get!

    What other information does it give other than gas mileage?

    JD i just got my 08 ext cab truck, I have the DCI , no panel like you bought,On the dash over the oil gage indicator is a small push tab that when pushed i get odom reading, trans temperture,and trip odom reading thats all. My question JD is when you got the panel buttons , what were you able to get readings on? was you able to get anything more then what i got.I assumed you could get mileage per gal as well as other info.In my particular DCI did i get a min or with additional panel button your able to get more info from your new wiring hook up
