    Unless you add pressure sensors and extra temp sensors you've got no chance.
    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 !

    If I get the probes from known guage makers is there any way to connect to the PC?

    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

    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 Skin
    MEDIACAR MM Skin
    obd_OFF.jpg,obd_OFF.jpg,obd_ON.jpg,obd_DOWN.jpg
    /, B, x, y, w, h, Command;COMMANDCODES, Tooltip
    B21,1,523,110,79,"CLOSE","Exit"
    /, 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
    A01,0,81,800,440,000,000,000
    /, I, x, y, w, h, Code;INDICATORCODES
    /, Y, Back Slider file path
    Y01,"\volume_slider\volume_*.jpg"
    /, S, x, y, w, h, x1, y1, w1, h1, O, Style, Pointer file path, h2, Code;SLIDERCODES, Tooltip

    END

    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..
