    Streetdeck ODBII features?

    I am interested in purchasing StreetDeck. I would like to know from someone who has it and who has the ODBII adapter the features StreetDeck offers. I was about to buy the DashDAQ II because of its amazing feature with the touch screen display and the ODB II functions. I am mainly interested in the Trip/ continuous and average gas mileage. Also the MAF and the additional sensors display. Does the StreetDeck offer these features when using the ODBII connector?

    StreetDeck is only compatible out of the box with ELM based OBDII adapters. I do not believe that this include the DashDAQ II.

    god_of_cpu thank you for replying. But I think I didnít word my question correctly. I know the DashDAQ will not work with the StreetDeck software. I want to know what the StreetDeck software offers when using an ODB II connector. If it doesn't offer all the features I want then I am going to buy a DashDAQ unit instead of using the StreetDeck software.

    I was just looking into this as well, Red. The link you just posted ends with a request for a listing of all the sensors Streetdeck can measure with the Elmscan 5 available via mp3car.com's stores. Is there a list available somewhere?

    Well to answer my own question with the information RedGTiVR6 told us, the StreetDeck software with the ElmScan5 ODB II adapter will not give you the continuous and average gas mileage. Although, the ElmScan5 adaptor does output the fuel banks, MPH and MAF. With some work someone could write the software them selves to calculate the values.

    Thank you for the information.
