    Cool! I'll try that. I was wondering how I had a different visualization on my car pc than I have on my desktop where I am learning about Driveline today.

    Well the new release is working just fine. Next build maybe have the low tire alert in a small icon on the main bottom bar green for good red for low pressure, also be able to change the sensor names like the phidget plugin. Great work! SNO

    I'll need to set up configurable thresholds for tire pressure alerts. I will probably have the pressure alert icon flash in the same location as the OBD status icon. I will also make it so you can assign locations like "Front-Left" or "Spare".

    Sounds perfect. You should be quite proud of this release, it's so fast and smooth. TPMS updates temp and pressure as tires warm up, nicely. SNO

    Any chance of getting a battery meter instead of just numbers on the TPMS tab. It might add a bit of colour to a numbers page. My poor attempt at graphics SNO Name:  battlevel.jpg

    If I were to connect an elm 327 reader to my pc, would it be able to read tire pressure through Driveline?

    I have an LCD screen between the speedo and tach that displays each tire's pressure, and I also have an android app that calls the car and grabs several screens of vitals through the onstar phone's modem.

    The OBD-II interface (which is what the ELM327 translates) doesn't provide a tire-pressure monitor. (or if it does, it is with an undocumented OBD code). DriveLine supports a third-party tire-pressure monitoring kit.

    However, OBD-II does support querying of Speed, RPM, CoolantTemp, IntakeTemp, ManifoldPressure (and DriveLine can calculate boost), Fuel Trims, FuelSystem, MAF-Rate, Trouble-Codes, and other things. DriveLine can even clear the check-engine light via OBD-II. When using the ELM-327, DriveLine will update your current speed instantly (as opposed to getting the speed from GPS which has a slight lag). Also, with some skin work, all of the values can be drawn as gauges.

    The OnStar thing sounds interesting. I wonder how the hell that works..

    It might be possible with the right scanner and if the pid for the tpms is available and Clockwork could add to the obd2 monitoring. It's really just setup for the kit available from the store or the forum member that designed it. Do you know what frequency your factory sensor's are? SNO

    The tire pressure is not really necessary for me, because I do have a dedicated LCD screen that display's it. More interesting is the other engine functions and codes that I don't get on that screen. I have a bluetooth ELM 327, but I was wondering if I should look at a USB based device that I could leave installed all the time? Any suggestions?

    As far as the Onstar thing, it's $300 a year, and it has a phone service and directions, but I rarely use it other than locking the car door with my phone when I cannot remember if I locked it. I purchased 60 minutes of talk time for $5 when I bought the car, and it expires the 26th, but I never used it. I only have had the opportunity to drive to and from work, 15 minutes each way, for the whole year I have had the car, so I just listen to 3 or 4 songs and am done. The car has it's own phone number, but my cell phone is 4G with unlimited data, so it's the device that gets used.
