  • Temparature displays

    Hi There

    Has any one or does any one have knowledge on how to get the ambient temparature and perhaps internal cabin temparature displayed on the carputer screen as a seperate application ? or maybe even visible like the time in media car or media engine ?

    thanks for the response

    have you tried the matrix orbital displays? it's an external serial/usb LCD it has temperature probes. www.matrixorbital.com. Plugs in pc then program it to display the temp with the help of the sensor. That's what i've done, didn't intergrate it with the mediacar / media engine interface.

        To get the temperature you can use this kit. It sends data to the serial port, and also gets power from there.

        Order on this page (CPS145 one sensor included)

        Extra sensors (supports up to four per board)
        DS1820, order on same page.

        I have ordered it, but not yet installed/written software for it.

            I've got the hardware that NewTechFool describes. I'm using it to run a weather station. I've got multiple sensors (one inside, one outside) daisy chained to a long piece of CAT5, works great! You can even get humidity and barometric pressure sensors. Hardware is relatively simple, and tmp ensors are cheap. (I think they're around $3 each).

                Matrix Orbital MX 212USB and the temp probe last item on this page. I've built it in where the original clock used to be ( centre of dashboard) looks absolutely gorgeous, displays mp3 artist/title for 10 seconds, temp for 5 secs, and clock for 20 secs. It carries on like this. It comes with the LCDC software and new plug-ins can be downloaded from net if needed ( e.g equalizer disp that works with winamp) It has a splash start up screen sayin my name etc) SORRY FOR THE LATE REPLY. WAS WATCHING THE A-TEAM!!! Also i bought it from http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/...ay_Mounts.html

                  Well I got the temperature module I mentioned in my post above. It is almost depressing how simple it is. Solder in a few components/wires, hook it up to your serial port, start HyperTerminal, and out comes a stream of temperatures.

                  I am REALLY impressed with this kit.
