The Nissan systems don't measure boost at all! They measure airflow and air temp.
Hence why its called a Mass Air Flow system.
EGT also needs extra electronics and AFAIK isn't going to happen with Nissan Consult hardware... It would be easier fitting a new ECU like a GEMS setup to do what you want ;)
There's also ECUTalk for gauges ;)
Just ordered DashCommand and its is now on special offer :)
With the MP3Car discount, it only works out at $21.21. Looking forward to integrating it into RoadRunner now :)
Lets see if we can get some more great skins designed !

Its not been done yet to AFAIK.
Not unless you're good at programming and have a knowledge of electronics.
I suppose it could be done using one of those USB relay board thingies :confused:
Looks like i have succedded in embedding DashCommand into RoadRunner.
Looks pretty good IMO.
Wow Tissy, that looks great! Care to post the skin files & give a howto?!!?? I think I may have to buy this software now! :)
The base Skin is called Simplistique, however, it has since it was developed some considerable time again, been heavily moddified and built on by me.
For those who know how to skin edit, you will need the following.
Create a skin page with a predefined "Application" area.
Here is an example of such, call it obd.skin
MEDIACAR MM Skin
/, B, x, y, w, h, Command;COMMANDCODES, Tooltip
/, L, x, y, w, h, color R;RGB, G, B, font size;FONT, font name, Code;LABELCODES, Tooltip;LABELALIGNMENT
L01,283,31,74,35,255,102,0,18,"Digital Readout Thick Upright:B","REMAININGTRACKTIME",""
L02,6,31,268,35,255,102,0,18,"Digital Readout Thick Upright:B","/ ||TAGARTIST||= - ||TAGTITLE||=","SCROLL-LEFT"
/, A, x, y, w, h, color R;RGB, G, B
/, I, x, y, w, h, Code;INDICATORCODES
/, Y, Back Slider file path
/, S, x, y, w, h, x1, y1, w1, h1, O, Style, Pointer file path, h2, Code;SLIDERCODES, Tooltip
This will give you a basic skin with a close button and also track names etc.
Then, add a button to your main 'menu.skin' and have the 'command' field labelled as:
"LOAD;obd.skin;DashCommand;C:\Program Files\DashCommand\dashcommand.exe;!wxWindowClassNR "
Obvioulsy, the 'C:\Program Files\DashCommand\dashcommand.exe' needs to be where the where YOUR DashCommand exe is stored.
I haven't tried it in the car yet, but see no reason why it won't work.
How long did it take for you to create the guts of that? As in, not the graphical skin itself, but the stuff controlling how those gauges act in response to OBD-ii inputs? I already have a $600 Ford usb/obd-ii scanner/programmer, but am on the fence for a compact read-only unit with this dash command software, but I don't have much time to invest into learning/coding/skinning..
