Other Gauges from CanBus

Post by caseyonmiddleback01 » Thu Sep 05, 2019 4:21 am

Love your DPF app!

Was wondering if you've looked into pulling some other info out of the ecu?

I've a V6 amarok in Australia and I know a large portion of us Australian drivers would love to see a reasonably accurate boost, exhaust gas temp and trans temp guage. Most of this info isn't available via obd2 or is limited via the protocol.

Would your existing work interfacing with the canbus transfer over to completing such an app?

Cheers,
Abe

The ECU parameter list is enormous.
I know every user would like to have many parameters available, but with this app I'm focusing only on DPF so I prefer to avoid parameters not directly related to DPF and its functionality.
The problem is that more parameters means low reading frequency and I don't want to worsen that value. Moreover, as you can see, the available space on the screen is noto so much to have a good font visualization in case of use in car with a holder (so with the screen at about 1 meter from the eyes).

I have in mind the development of a similar app but focused on other parameters, like temperatures, pressures, etc. this would be relativele easy keeping the same screen layout and functions, but actually this is just an idea because I don't have much time available for development in this period.

That sounds cool.

I had pictured it as a separate app in my head too.

If you find time to make it, there will be. Huge number of us who will buy it!

I'm just sorry I can't offer any assistance. Anything beyond basic Arduino is outside my capabilities.
