Just bought a killer tablet. I'm interes isted in reading tranny temp in realtime. Recommendations? The tablet is an Android.
I'd love to know how well it works with a tablet, either 7" or 10".2004LS said:I haven't used it with my tablet yet, but I should do that soon!
jimmyjam said:just saw the latest torque update they added GM PIDs for oil pressure. This is the only functionality i needed that wasn't there, pretty happy to see it
SAR85 said:I was happy to see that as well although I'm not sure it will be any better than the dummy gauge for the 4.2. I haven't tested it yet though.
As an FYI, the latest update also added ABS wheel speed sensor PIDs, engine oil temp and air conditioning high side pressure. I also haven't tested these yet.
I can't see anywhere to purchase a Dashhawk. It also looks like the vendor isn't supporting it any more as it wasn't on their website when I looked a few days ago.jimmyjam said:as far as i know the engine oil temp is another dummy gauge
yes the oil pressure isn't useful for i6 guys... v8 guys moreso.
i have buddies that ask me for my thoughts on getting a dashhawk, for the money torque + chinese bt adapter is just too much bang vs buck to not have. keep on checking things off the list of "things torque can't do that hpt scanner can"
Oy, frigging idiots..jimmyjam said:the oil pressure sender on the i6 is just a switch, that i believe is triggered at 12psi.
SAR85 said:Haven't tried others but Torque Pro works well for me with a PLX Kiwi Bluetooth.
It will read trans temp on an '03 TB, ads well as several other extended PIDs that can be found through the app and online.
What tablet did you buy? How good does it work in sunlight?ElAviator72 said:Just bought a killer tablet.
CaptainXL said:How does that kiwi work for you? Interested in what torque says is your max pids per second.
SAR85 said:I was getting an average of about 11 and a max of about 15.5 this morning. The numbers started going up when the car wasn't running, probably because the computer wasn't as busy.
