    VirtuDash 0.1 released - a freeware to DIY customizabled dashboard for your car

    VirtuDash is a freeware for people who want to DIY a customized and unique dashboard for their cars. It reads out live vehicle data and illustrates the data in a customizable way based on a simple XML-based definition file.
    The download package contains two executables. The vdash.exe is the main app. The vcon.exe is a console program which polls data from OBD-II port, communicates with main app and pushes data to it. The main app renders the data in graphics with the data pushed.
    I developed VirtuDash on my VW Scirocco and has tested it on many types of cars and more than 95% of them worked.

    Features

    • Reading out vehicle data through OBD-II port (work with ELM327 compatible USB or Bluetooth OBD-II adapter)
    • XML-defined dashboard layout (gauge, bar, digits etc.)
    • Third-party data input
    • HUD mode (mirrored display for projection)

    Any chance you could add MPG rating? There's been a formula floating around for gasoline vehicles that uses MAF, Short Term Trim and Long Term Trim readings to figure out instant MPGs

    Yes. I will do this quite soon. Actually I am testing the calculation by comparing the result with built in MPG display in my car.

    All common PIDs data can be read out. Just take a look at the XML file and the type of data to be shown can be configured.

    I don't think you have been banned, if you had it would have only been for this thread and the thread would have been deleted as well.

    Although a first post that is a thread showing new software with a link to another site from someone in China is likely to be picked up as spam.


    Oh and creating a second account is almost certainly going to get you banned.
