    How did they set up that digital dash in the fourth video?
    Check out my GMC Savana worklog.

    Remaining tasks to facilitate vanputer installation codename "Enterprise":
    - Edit skin to liking.
    - Get compatible phone for mobilephone.net.
    - Facilitate HVAC control.

    Depending on which ECU you have your datatransfer rate may be faster. GM's ALDL runs at two speeds, 160 baud and 8192. I have a 87 camaro which has the 8192 baud ECU, however it can also run at 160 if I choose (which I have used before). It has a data sample rate of about once per second, which really isnt all that fast. 8192 gets you around 10 samples per second which I've used as a sort of digital dash and it is fast enough for regular driving.

    Hi, you may didn't say "they" but better "he".
    Take a look at the site (zcarcockpit) below, everything is explained.

    Hi Zorro_x, I sent you a message on your site requesting a copy of the software. I didn't find a detailed description of the software, so I thought I might ask you a few questions here:

    1: Where does the software get the data from? Does it use digital and analog inputs from logic boards such as Fusion Brain?
    2: Can it pull information from other software such as WinALDL? I have a 1993 Chevrolet G20 van that has an ALDL port. WinALDL can pull information from that port and display certain data (gauges) in real time.
    3: Is it capable of being embedded into a front end (Road Runner)?
    4: Is it customizable? If yes, how much?

    Hello, I'm sorry but considering that I wish to commercialize it as a product one day (maybe) i'm not yet able to provide you anything more than described in the wiebsite concerning the Z-Car Cockpit project.

    For the moment it uses only analog input, but the software is designed to take any imput providing needed data.

    It could certainly be possible, but for the moment it doesn't.

    I don't know road runner, but it is a standalone application, not a plug-in of any other.

    Yes, as much as you want : linear or radial gauges in any direction, fonts, colors, bacground screen, etc...

    Actually i'm working on rear cam & a new skin to be able to show you the full capacities of my project. Unfortunately i've not enough time to work on it as much as I want, so you have to be patient, sorry.
