To fix the horsepower reading we suggest you alter the Brake Specific Fuel Consumption setting in the vehicle settings. Most likely, DashCommand's default value is not correct for your vehicle. Try values between .30 and .50 and see what effect the changes have.

DashCommand doesn't have any manufacturer-specific data for that vehicle. We'll likely have whatever Torque Pro offers.

I'm not sure what is going on here. Can you send us a tech log? Instructions are here:

Just start DashCommand and enter debug mode as explained in the link. Then start your vehicle and idle for 20 seconds. Then send us the tech log.

Sorry. Data screen is actually the DATA GRID. That is on the front page.

The rpm is supported on all vehicles, so you should see that one. I'd suggest you try re-validating the PIDs. Set the OBD-II response timeout to 1000 before the validation. This is in the vehicle settings->obdii settings.

In DashCommand, the torque is calculated directly from horsepower. You can adjust the brake specific fuel consumption value in the vehicle settings. However this will change both the power and torque.

There isn't a way to adjust one without the other.

That sounds pretty bad. There are a few things you might try, but the performance won't be great.

Go into settings and disable the persistent PIDs. These are used to record your trips, so you won't get trip data while those are disabled.

After they are disabled, go into the Data Screen and remove all the PIDs except for RPM. This will allow you to check how fast the RPM updates when that is the only PID requested, and give you a baseline of how fast you can expect data.

I am not familiar with that device, but it does claim to work with DashCommand.

Have you seen our WIFI setup guide?

Great! Way to be persistent.

I think the main file you'll need is on external storage. Probably /storage/emulated/0. The filename is ppe_fleetdb.vdb.

Unfortunately, dashboards made with the BETA version are incompatible with ScanXL and the Windows version of DashCommand.

You can use iTunes to upload the dashboards directly to your installation of DashCommand if you are on iOS.

Does sound like hardware. Could be the hardware on the vehicle though, rather than the ELM unit. Hard to say.
12  Products / DashCommand / Re: Readings after disconnect and other problems. on: October 03, 2016, 04:28:56 pm
I think there is something wrong with the ELM unit. It could be the vehicle though. Have you tried it in a different car?

Hi. DashCommand is unable to do this, and we are not planning to add that feature.

Thank you.

The HP setting is the Brake Specific Fuel Consumption. I think as you lower that value, the HP goes higher. We recommend starting at .45 for naturally aspirated engines, and adjusting from there. Should be a decimal value between 0 and 1.

The MPG sounds pretty close. I don't know how accurate your vehicle is. You can make DashCommand slightly more accurate by using the fillup screen, but that's usually more trouble than it is worth.

Glad you got it working. The 2005 PIDs should be fine.
