I need someone to explain this to me.

Digidash: digital dashboard for megasquirt


The Digidash project is an open source digital dashboard designed just for the megasquirt EFI system we mentioned in our diy EFI motorcycle post. Unfortunately, the site doesn’t link the hardware design. From the description, I’m assuming that it’s essentially a graphic LCD driven by an Atmel microcontroller that talks to the Megasquirt to get the display info.

  1. I’d be interested in something like this that output to a standard composite cable based LCD. I’ve got a double din DVD/NAV unit in my car and plan in moving to a MegaSquirt system in the future…. tying it in with that screen would make for a slick integration.

    Maybe they won’t give out the hardware because they want to sell it?

    idd say put in blue tooth interface so you can connect it to a laptop via fast reliable wireless blue tooth
    also a gps unit wouldn’t have any harm and have it read the speed camera location log i know 4 one i have been cought speeding like 10 times in the past 2 months they have had them around here

    Take a look at http://www.beaglesride.org
    They are doing an open source PC companion for Megasquirt & FreeEMS, with optional display, WiFi, GPS & USB Flash memory for datalogging.
