95 Astro, what software do I need?
I am very interested in the various packages offered on your site for displaying "digital gauges" on an LCD screen.
However, I am unsure of exactly what I need to accomplish this.
I am interested in displaying all of the same info as my existing gauges (MPH, RPM, fuel level, oil pressure, temp, volts) in addition to turn signals, high beams, other idiot lights.
This would be used as my primary display, to replace my current guages.
I do not need touch screen for the main display screen because I will be using a small touch screen mounted where the radio is to control it all as well as display GPS, radio, DVD, etc...
So, in a nutshell, I guess I have quite a few questions to straighten out.
1: What exactly does the software connect to? I see it needs an OBD-II port. Does my van have that port?
2: Does the software need any other connections? To get MPH, can it be read from the onboard computer or does it need its own connection to the transmission?
3: Can the gauges be set to display on just 1 screen all of the time?
I'm sure I'll think of more as this conversation progresses.
