    Digital Gauge Software

    Just wondering if anyone knows if Centrafuse are planning on expanding their OBD-II to display a set of digital gauges dipicting measurements like, speed, revs, boost pressure and oil temp within the Centrafuse software. At the moment the only software which displays this type of information is engine tuning software, but not really for the purpose of providing easy to read gauges while driving.

    Most vehicle ECUs collect this information and we can access it through the OBD-II inetrface, but there is yet to be a software that displays this information in real-time onto an easy to read digital guage you can read while driving. vDash almost has it right however, their gauges can only update in real-time only updating in one second intervals which is not accurate enough. vDash ---> http://www.chetcodigital.com/vGauge/vDash.htm

    Something similar to the digital gauge layout on the new Skyline GTR would be a huge selling point if you could incorporate this into Centrafuse. This would allow anyone with a carputer and OBD-II scan device to output a digital guage cluster on their carputer. Perhaps a Centrafuse OBD-II XLE release of the software, spesifically targeting those who require engine management stats, graphs and statistics would do the trick.

    Has anyone come across some software which can offer all this?

    That's interesting that vDash only updates 1 time a second. OBDII updates (I believe) over 32 times a second. Although, from what I've heard it is 64 times a second in newer vehicles.
