You got to get Dave to work on the delux model. ;-)

Till then, I think you can also get those plots by loading your file into excel.

Mmmmmmm plots. There is something deeply satisfying about a nice big CSV file.

Thanks, about what I was seeing!

Tranny and coolant temp don't go much above 220F.

x-axis is in minutes. Load is plotted for values greater than 40.

Dave,

Former fast jet pilot and part-time computer programmer here. I've thirsted for a way to monitor trans temp on our 06 View (05 Sprinter 3500) and would love the other capabilities as well. I'd like to order one but will have to tune up my cross check speed again. My eyes aren't what they once were when I was scanning the sky for bogies so font size is a bit of an issue for me... I don't need glasses to drive and would hate to have to wear them for your panel.

In any case, please put me on your list. I'm even ready to pay up front if it will help improve/increase your production process.

One other question I have regards software updates..... do you support them and how is it done?

Added. You’re #65...

The fonts on the Driving page are about the same size as the T1N’s speedometer numbers... if that’s still too small I can likely cut some of the “Driving” page values out and make the boxes bigger for you?
The source code is included with the unit and can be tweaked. I intend to get it up onto github eventually, and the Arduino IDE is pretty straightforward. The Mega2560 connects via a USB cable, and can be accessed by unscrewing the front cover and prying the board up.

With three kids in grades 7 & 9 I’m suddenly a home-school teacher - which I’m fine with, but my schedule was already pretty full!

Sounds like your kids need to learn to solder?

Have you thought about making a cut down version of this that emulates the frontend of an ELM327. There appear to be lots of ELM327 emulators around. So the frontend code for that could be made to interface with your actual backend hardware K line stuff. The emulator would run on a serial port BT module on your hardware. Does it have a spare UART? or BT interface available?

Doing this means people could use their own display, for example Android Torque app, which would talk to your device. This would elimate the need for UI code on your hardware and would simplify its job a lot, so that it can focus on doing the actual K line stuff, and leave all the fancy display/logging/graphing to the external device.

eg. https://github.com/TheBigBadWolfClub/GTTurboEcu

I may have a few months spare coming up to work on this myself lol. how far away do you reckon my order is?

I like having the dedicated device. Having to take my phone out, get the BT to connect and load the app, and get the app to connect to the van, in order to get the data I want becomes very tiresome and old really fast.

Nautamaran, I forget if your already talking to the brake, ABS Kline or not. Is it possible to have it pull codes from the ABS? I think have a wheel sensor on the fritz. Everytime its wet outside I get the brake/ABS warning light on the dash. Once everything dries out it goes away.
Actually I was just thinking if it is a wheel sensor I have datalogging turned on, so I would be able to see if one of the wheel speeds doesnt correlate to the others.

Thats fine, you can continue to use the dedicated UI.

I on the other hand, have a permanently mounted android device on my steering column cowl. I use the torque app and it allows automatic start and stop of the device using the ignition. I have it there because I lowered the steering column angle to give me a much better driving position. But I can't see the top of the speedometer because the steering wheel is in the way now. So the android device functions as my visible speedometer, which is kind of a critical readout to have.

In addition, the device provides configurable alarms for everything and totally configurable gauges, graphs, displays and pages. All on a nice AMOLED display that is easy on the eye day and night.

But I only have access to the very limited ROW T1N stock channels. I would love to have EOT and GBT channels on that for example.

And if I were to use this device as is, I would lose all of that functionality.
