    OBD Gauges required for RR

    Hey Guys...can anyone help me out.
    I've got my ELM320 working in various OBD software programs...BUT
    I need a nice set of analogue gauges I can embed into a RoadRunner screen.
    Has anyone got anything I can use ? (apart from OBD-DIAG)

    I think it's time to integrate OBDII support in RoadRunner. Or write a plugin to it. Then anyone will use custom flash gauges as for GPS speedo and etc.

    Perhaps I should be brave and put that to the RR Forum

    Have you seen our DashCommand™ software? It was designed for just this purpose.

    Also, the mp3car.com community can use the "mp3car" coupon code to receive a discount from our online store.

    Ok, great! If you have any questions or problems, don't hesitate to post up and ask me about them. I'd be more than happy to help you get it set up and running.

    I've installed Dashcommand (registered) on my laptop to test it out and familiarise myself with it. When I hit connect it just sits there saying "connecting" If I touch anything the Dashcommand window goes blank with a "not responding" message in the window title bar.
    Where is the configuration file/screen to confirm com port etc. ??

    I have confirmed the correct operation of my ELM320 (V2) by running OBD-DIAG successfully. My 320 is connected by USB, which has been set to com1.

    HELP !

    PPE - out of curiousity what did you use to create those gauges? I'm guessing some of the tools from Dundas or Chart FX?

    Hi Wizz,

    Can you please download the demo version of PCMSCAN and see if it also has trouble connecting. Both applications share the same code for connecting to the OBD-II port, so I'd like to determine if there is a problem there, or somewhere else.

    Those gauges are completely custom. They are built using our custom DashXL™ technology. Feel free to download either PCMSCAN™ or DashCommand™ and try out the dashboard editor. You can find the online help for the dashboard editor here: http://www.palmerperformance.com/products/dashxl/help
