Hello lads & ladies,
I have recently purchased a Toyota Supra 1995 model - car can be viewed here: http://www.ozsupra.com -- anyway I have always been into computers and the functionality and have been following mp3car.com for quite some time, mostly reading what other people have done & getting a few ideas for a small project
I currently have an Alpine IVA-D310E, MRD1001, Type-X 12", in terms of quality and sound, it's bloody excellent, although I am looking at selling all my audio gear to start a new venture. I want a carputer! (still getting useto this term), I think I customize so many features with my carputer and have my car providing me with what I really want & that is just plain diagnostics & information!
So I have a few questions for all you professionals out there:
1) I have recently converted my car to manual, the engine loom remains the same, the ECU has been changed to a Power FC Pro. This car is mean't to be an OBDI, now I wanted to have this converted over to OBDII mainly for the added features of OBDII, since I am quite clueless as to how to do this and if it is possible with an automatic engine loom I am asking if anyone has had much experience with this?
2) I have had a quick read of these front ends (RR + Centrafuse) and both seem to provide some excellent features, I still haven't chosen as which one I will be using, basically what I will be wanting to do is be able to customize the software to allow it to prompt commands such as:
[sound] I want it to basically say "Your engine temperature is 31 degrees", I know there will be quite a lot of programming involved, but basically my question is -- will either one of the software programs above allow me to do so.
if engine temperature > 30 degrees output "sound"
I have very strong knowledge in PHP/XHTML/CSS/BASH (raw code).
I will see how things go from here and my limitations in terms of software, once I have compiled everything I will post up in the projects section. To all of you who have read this and replied thankyou
