Engineering credo:
  • Good
  • Fast
  • Cheap
Pick any two.

The really cheap ones and Apple products don't work with bluetooth OBDII adapters, so read the specs on whatever you buy. 7-8" screen hits the sweet spot for allowing plenty of gauges on display without being too small, yet the frame is not so big it covers or blocks something you'd rather it didn't.

It should work. That 1G of RAM is spooky, so don't try to run a video game with Torque Pro online.

Ideally I would sit in passenger seat and play with torque pro while my wife drove BUT she hates the truck. Itís to long, loud, wide, ďstinky, rough riding Ē and the arm rest is to high. She does like the manual transmission and how it handles the 5th wheel but thatís it.

I bought a pre-paid cell on sale for $20 (50% off) with a 5.5" screen. Good processor but no memory (6 or 8 GB I think). I never activated it but BT works for Torque Pro (runs great) and I use the Wi-Fi at home to download updates. It's smaller than a tablet but you can't beat it for $20. It sits in a mount in the lower left of my windshield just above the dash.

Custom PID for ICP? The stock one wasn't in there? There are very exacting guidelines for how to set up a PID that can work, one typo can kill it.

There was no canned gauge in the list that I could find
so I found on a different thread the pid that I believe you posted and filled in the blanks.

Look for typos, they'll get ya - there's no such thing as "close enough" in the binary brain that is a computer.
