Look forward to hearing more.
I like "Dash Command" but as yet, no custom PID capability.

I don't like "Engine Link", but it does have custom PIDs, so I can monitor the DPF. What annoyed the hell out of me was I had to buy a separate version, another $8, if I want to run it on my phone! Bugger that!

Anyway, please keep us informed.

As soon as I've got it and plugged it in and had a play I'll post back, I too have engine link, but geez it looks poxy... I'm no master at entering PID, in fact this is the first car I've bothered to do anything with in regards to OBDII, although I have done a lot on motorcycles and programming fuel tables via laptop, they're not OBDII...

Re: Good OBD II App

Well I got it working, was able to pickup from the guy on eBay to save waiting for delivery..

OBD fusion is definitely a nice app and very customisable. I setup DPF monitoring as a custom PID and it's showing 40% full (car has only done 1068kms)

The way I set it up was for mode 01 PID 8B, put in the formula for the percentage and 0-100 as the range, obviously..

The only thing I don't like is that I can't change the apps own boost gauge from Kpa to PSI without changing the whole apps unit of measure from metric to English/American. I'm sure I can set a custom PID but I'm too tired... I know Kilopascals is metric but when it comes to boost I'm an imperialist at heart.. Also, and it may be because it's diesel, but it never goes to negative boost, always bounces from 0 to above 20 at max boost..

Thanks Scott.

Bit the bullet yesterday arvo and bought FUSION as we were driving 100+ klms last night. I have it all set up incl DPF% full! Not quite as easy as Dash Command for setting up gauges but of course the custom PIDs makes it a winner.
And yes, funny you should say that about boost, same for me, it's psi or nothing!!

My DPF was indicating about 58% full as we left Brisbane and now 63% full on the Sunny Coast, so theoretically I should see a Regen sometime soon!!!, and hopefully, on the highway, on the way home later this week. I have not had the Dec 18 software update applied yet, so will be watching it closely.

For anyone contemplating an iPad or iPhone app I would rate them as follows.

Dash Command. Nice, easy to get the look you want, but no custom PID capability. Can't get DPF percentage so if you want that, no good, though a huge amount of other info available, and you can set each gauge to the unit that you want. Works on iPad and iPhone.

Engine Link. Crap, crude and very limited but on the positive side does do custom PIDs. It looks more like a BETA version in early development. Don't wast your money, and they want even more if you want it on phone AND iPad.

Fusion. Slightly harder to set up the gauges the way you want, but custom PID capability so is the one to go for. As said previously, you can't easily get different units- it's either ALL imperial or all metric, unless you go delving into custom formulae, which gets a bit technical, something I might tackle when I feel like it.

Anyway, that's it for me, Fusion is what I'll stick with as I keep an interested eye on the DPF and other things. (I had coolant temp, oil temp, cat temp, DPF % full and boost running last night and that's it for now. Might look at some more later perhaps, or try to work out how to get boost into psi.)

Re: Good OBD II App

Thanks David, I'm with you mate, I'll stick with fusion, I like how you can really change the look of the gauges to suit, I'll try and setup a custom formulae for boost in PSI when I get back from my next trip (sometime next week) but at the moment I'm happy with leaving it in imperial so I can see boost and DPF.. The other temps would concern me more if I were towing but I'm not at that stage yet...

Re: Good OBD II App

Quick ready on the net confirms its normal for a diesel not to generate vacuum like a petrol car as far as boost readings are concerned, so I'll stop looking into it and set my boost gauge ranges accordingly..

The temps are something which might scare you a bit.
I tow a 3 Tonne van and the gauge is very active, and really moves up quickly when you encounter a hill.

HOWEVER, it stops just short of the red nasty bit on the gauge and thus far, I haven't actually had problems. I've monitored it closely with the OBDII and I think the highest I've seen is about 115C, way short of where it would boil.
It's a far more "honest" gauge than many modern cars, which are a complete lie, eg: my mates Landcruiser.

I'll be towing my van fully laden with full water tanks, up a steep range in about a month and will will watch it with great interest, especially if it is as warm as it has been around here lately.

Cya
David

PS the thermostat only STARTS to open at about 96-97C...
VERY different to older generation diesels.

Re: Good OBD II App

I confirmed with the app developer of OBD Fusion that he will be adding in the next update the ability to have gauge independent of an overall metric/imperial setting (available within a month) which is good news - my DPF is at 60% now and I'm itching to see it regen.. Small things I know..

Bought this adapter along with Torque Pro (< 29 bucks) - wish I had done it a long time ago.

Now it's all abut understanding everything I'm looking at and what to look at.

Could take a screen shot of the PID setup and formula you used and post? Thanks...
