There are a number of different display versions that have been fitted to the Omega.

MID - Multi info display (Early type)

(Notice the missing pixels - a common fault on these earlier MIDs).
Functionality as per above with the addition of computer functions (Outside Temp, Inst Consumption, Average Consumption, Range, Stopwatch), consists of a single full size screen. Early versions have two connectors one yellow and one black. Has 8 digit radio info line, which appears above fuel computer information.

In addition, not that the left side of TID pic above is dark - this is a sign the backlight bulb that side is blown, easy to replace. Same with the right of the earlier type MID above. Both these have to backlight bulbs. Later type MIDs have 4 backlight bulbs.

The CCRT display above is shown outside of its housing, and 2 of the 3 backlight bulbs are blown.

The GID also take 3 backlight bulbs, but the CID uses a properly LCD style tube, which is not replacable.
