The two main engine instruments don't fog up, but the separate engine hours meter does. They are digital LCD displays - Opti and others are analogue aren't they? (I mean they have a moving needle as well as the little LCD dissplay).

Point Taken

Does the engine hours have a moving component or is that purely LCD?

I guess one solution to the Opti Problem is to go Navman Smartlink and then you get the best of both worlds, a purely digital display and a fogged up screen

No, the engine hours meter is a fully mechanical one, a bit like a car odometer but electrically powered.
