    Cobb-Like Digital gauges for ANY OBDII via Iphone and Android devices - Torque

    This is really awesome, It can show multiple great gauges via OBDII as well as being able to check codes!

    I would think this would be awesome for JB4 / Vishnu users that don't have the Cobb HUD with an open OBDII port

    Already working on it actually. Not a fan of the way those gauges look.

    Think more LF-A using a 7" tablet.

    This definitely looks like it fits the bill, and its made by innovate which is a super reputable brand in the gauge market

    I saw those too. Just not a fan of any of the gauge looks I've come across. I think the LF-A style presents everything really necessary for racing in a small, easy-to-read package; and very pleasant to look at. So I'll roll my own until I can find something similar. Currently writing it using OpenGL.

    There are a few companies out there that make digital gauge displays like this. I know Sledgehammer was looking into the Zeitroninx display

My final decision is this, its called the Zeitronix DashDaq and it will be able to read my Fuel Pressure, AFR and Boost. Plus a host of other functions like Data Logging, Acceleration runs, Navigation (which I did not opt for) and so on. Its the size of a portable Nav screen and is hard wired to the car. You can mount it in the dash space allowing or like any other portable nav on the window. I plan to keep it in the drivers side corner of the windscreen. Here's a video and link to the product itself. I am also posting dyno sheets of the all motor setup and original blower setup as well.

    computer engineer, but I've had exposure to different things; I do mostly embedded development right now (VxWorks, etc). I did a bit of OpenGL android work for military maps some time ago, and have been itching to play with it again.

    This is the way to go if you want everything hidden. You just need to get the proper additional sensors and you can measure boost, egt, afr, etc if im not mistaken

    Hehe. It'll be on a Nexus 7 tablet in landscape mode hiding the stock gauges in front of the steering wheel. So you can stream Bluetooth music to your car and get that if you want it lol. Ever notice that spot is the perfect size for a 7" tablet?

    HKS Camp2, if I'm not mistaken, is VERY expensive. I'm looking at a free/cheap Android app that runs on a Nexus 7 (<$200). Very nice though. HKS has some slick stuff, but for some reason they just charge ridiculous prices for everything.

    This would be awesome if you can duplicate this, or even come close. That's impressive. I am curious how fast the OBDII will refresh signals... I am super curious how this pans out, keep this thread alive! Click here to enlarge

    I can keep it smooth and approximate using interpolation and a few other predictive techniques. We'll see. For now, it won't have textures and will just be some lines drawn on a screen Click here to enlarge But with OpenGL, which is what I think the Lexus gauge cluster is done with, will allow for VERY smooth graphics.

    Once the tech demo is done, it comes to expanding features.

    Sered,

    You would be able to do this onto a IOS or Andriod device?

    Could this become an alternative for non-idrive users, to have a custom tablet with this software permanently installed into the dash? is that the idea?

    I was bored yesterday and took a look at the Torque application to see if there were any plugin APIs or something. And it turns out there is. And not only that, there's themeing, which there are quite a few themes out now. Looks like a FRS owner mounted a Nexus 7 tablet and used a theme for a pretty spectacular effect:

    This isn't EXACTLY what I'm looking for, but the pragmatist in me thinks I can make a cluster themed how I want it, or if that doesn't work, a separate APK that acts as a plugin. No sense in re-inventing the wheel. Looks like making your own theme is pretty easy, just trying to find better documentation for it right now.

    I've got an ELM327, tried these apps; and even on the fastest update speed; the latency is stil TERRIBLE. Like 250-500ms between events and update.

    I think its directly attributed to the OBD2 update speed. Right now its going from OBD2 to bluetooth, to serial stream, to app, to screen. I think if I were running a USB-based one or a better module than the ELM327 which is dirt cheap, it would be substantially better If someone else with a OBD2 bluetooth/wifi unit could go try it I'd be appreciative. You can test it with the free app; just watch how fast it responds to changes in rpm.

    Definitely feel it's got a huge cool factor going for it but doubt I would ever use this.

    Well after having been spoiled by my S2000, I want to get part of that dash back. The problem is, I don't think the cheaper bluetooth OBD2 tools like the ELM327 are going to cut it. They just don't have enough throughput. I think the max PID/sec my ELM327 can do is about 6/sec. There's no way you can get enough information to display with that slow of a speed; not to mention the latency I've found. I've seen other tools online quoting 60PID/s, but still over bluetooth, so I'm not sure if the latency would be any better.

    Really the best way to do it is via USB and not all Android tablets support USB host mode, it would require an ADK setup for a slave/master hybrid.
