The sensor is accurate but the gauge is set up to display in the normal range for a large temperature range. It is not as "feedback rich" as many of us would like.

It's okay to have redundancy in a monitoring system, and having the physical gauges is a good backup that I turn to frequently.
Apparently my cheapo Android phone (that is my Torque Pro platform) does not like to be in the sun for extended periods of time. The battery exploded and the case blew up like a balloon. Trying to motivate myself to buy a replacement battery ($15) but it costs almost as much as I paid for the phone ($25).

Happy Monday.
The only two things I've done to successfully fix an issue is either remove then re-do the PID (as Sous mentioned) or remove the app altogether and re-install it and start from scratch.

Got in the truck at lunch, started and drove out. Speedometer and MPG still zero. Rebooted the tablet. Everything was fine when it came back up showing positive MPG and MPH. My tablet lives in stand-by mode with the TorquePro open when the truck is parked. It may often go months that way. Suspect that somewhere in the app (or the OS) is a log file that collects error messages that result in an eventual buffer overflow.

Phones, tablets, and even computers need to be rebooted occasionally. Don't know why. Even one of my tablets warns me if it hasn't been rebooted in the last week or so.
I have a computer for our home entertainment center that runs 24/7 for months without issue.

I work with a gabillion computers and computerized devices at work. It took a while, but all my operators are trained to reboot the device or the software when things don't make sense. There are so many devices, we typically have 3 reboots on any given day - and Friday night is a shut-down.

Now... startups... that's a whole thing in and of itself. We had a startup that took 1/2 hour yesterday. Computers have "moods". I have my carputer that collects dust from time to time. Any time I have to dust it off, I boot it about 1/2 hour before I even contemplate using it.

I don't know if I should start another thread or just get a reply here since we are talking about PIDs everyone will know the formulas Tugly furnished.

Anyway here it goes. Do these look numbers look normal for a basically stock engine?
Is there a thread or a guide where these numbers will give me a heads up if they change?
Screenshot taken on fairly level ground, approx 75mph, after about 15 miles of riding to get warmed up. I've got 271k on the clock so I'd rather have a little warning for preventative maintenance. I have a little idea of what I'm looking at....a little. I know temperatures and voltages are good. Boost seems good to me, it will hit high 20's if I stomp on it.
I can monitor changes but if these numbers are off now I'll never know the difference.
Thanks for looking.

axmrdr , they look good to me. You should have no concerns about the numbers you are seeing there.

Nice tuning there. Do I see engine braking? I set my max TDP to 40 (same with EBP), and all of my gauges to 270-degree sweep.

Oh... and the ICP, IPR, and, FIPW got boring for me to watch, so I put those on page 2. My page one has Torque Converter Slip - very important when towing.

Thanks guys. That's good to hear. She seems like she's running well. Leaking more oil than I like right now and too busy working to find time to figure out where its coming from. About to go back to normal work schedule in a about week, I'll start looking then. Driving the Buick most days on commutes to minimize oil spots in driveway.

I'll keep reading and learning. Appreciate the feedback. (Never knew that diesels were such science projects) Sure love my truck though.
