Default Filling the hole in the Swift's dashboard

There's a hole in the dashboard of the Swift, right in the centre, just below the windshield. The hole is about one inch high, and six inches wide, with a curved back. (Will post a pic of it soon).

What could go in this slot? Temperature gauge? Digital compass? GPS reciever? Any ideas?

The hole is for the digital clock, which is already installed in the Zxi. Ask your dealer or some local car accessory shop for one.

Must be an accessory. My Zxi also came with an empty slot.

How much does the OE swift clock cost ?
Dealer quoted 600/- for the Baleno clock.

This is very shameful on part of Maruti.. they dont even provide the clock in the top version... how odd it must look for a car with climate control, to have that empty slot in dashboard....

even desi Indica taxis have one!

Default any possibilities of a clock on a NHC

Hi folks,
This could be a really late query on this forum. But do you have any ideas on how and where I can fix a clock on my NHC? My skin is allergic to a watch and clock on my audio system doesnt show up while on radio.
I have seen some after market clocks but they are really bulky and ugly.
