Abstract

See full text

A display control apparatus for a meter is provided. The display control apparatus includes an electronic control unit. The electronic control unit is configured to: (i) when a shift start condition of an automatic transmission is satisfied, calculate an estimated rotation speed of an engine by adding a correction amount commensurate with a state of a torque converter to a turbine rotation speed of the torque converter, the turbine rotation speed corresponding to a gear position after a shift; (ii) control the meter such that a rotation speed displayed on the meter is brought close to the estimated rotation speed; and (iii) when a fixing condition, including that the shift start condition for a downshift is satisfied and the engine is driven from the torque converter side, is satisfied, fix the correction amount to a value at the time when a start of the shift is determined.
