  • Impressed by Multimonitor.

    Some days ago started to create a litestep theme because i was not sure how the driveline will work on two monitors....!

    Man you rock....!


    Something more. Sometimes on the gps settings the driveline cannot detect the port to assign . Is there any tip on that?

    I have Driveline on my home PC too, and have 2 monitors, so it's easy to set some things up like re-ordering icons on the home page, or playing music on the media page while on the other screen I am messing with settings or something.

    I want to add a second screen in my car so I can project driveline onto my windshield as a heads up display, but I need to figure out how to mirror image it so it comes out correct. My windshield has the coating needed for HUD, and I tested it with my cell phone as working great.

      I'm pretty sure I can add some HUD functionality with mirroring. The question is going to be, "what should be displayed on the HUD?"

      Should it just be a duplicate of the main screen? Or just speed+bearing? And how to configure it...

        I am thinking the gauges screen, and able to show any check engine warnings in the band at the bottom, as well as the compass, and the name of song playing.

        It just needs a screen flip left to right... AKA Mirror.

          i didnt play that much but for some seconds that used it i got impressed.

          anyway it will take a little while before i got the other monitor down to the car

                  If you have a second screen sitting flat on your dash, the light will reflect off your windshield for a heads up display.

                  Since Driveline works with dual screens you can have this display floating on your windshield so you don't need to take your eyes off the road:

                    We're going to start with just a basic display of speed, bearing, and other useful info on the HUD. From there, we'll evaluate gauges.

                    My guess is that the projected information will need to be bright and be on a black background for best visibility.

                      Yeah, I was thinking how a black background would work better. I alread have a Cyan colored HUD for just the speed, so other info would be good too.

                      Please include boost too, as I am going to take my car in for a 2.9L Blower and tune.
