I write this with knowledge Iíve learned from John@PPE and Weston@PPE but with some lingering questions.  Iíve been working some time on a fairly aggressive skin with a lot on information.  Iíve been attempting to refine it to improve the overall refresh rate when in uses.  Iíll point out that Iíve tested with the latest iPhone and iPad so this is not outdated tech.  In addition, I own the Kiwi 3 (BLE) and Kiwi 2 Wifi.  Iíve also organized my skin with all static elements on one layer, elements that update over 60 seconds on another and the fast stuff on another layer, so three in all.  Before I get to my main question, Iíd like to state that I wish the SkinXL software refresh rate actually reported useful information, but Iíll be honest, it doesnít seem to help much.  I wish I could add a refresh element to the skin during testing on the iPhone. 

So to my point, Iíve been playing with an area on my skin where Iíve stack several objects that I can cycle its State.  Iím trying to find a way to lessen the load on the PID data being collected.  In an attempt to find the best option I need to better understand some of the functionality. 

Dashboard Object Settings

CycleState Ė When a state in my visible it seem data should not be collected.  For Graphs it seems data is still collecting.

HideObject, ShowObject and ToggleObjectVisibility seem to all have the same function.  The check or uncheck Objects Visible.  Yet when unchecked, data is still collecting.  This also leads me to think that itís a bad Idea to have a skin and simple uncheck visible if you no longer use the object, itís better to delete and hope you donít change your mind.

Feature Request Ė I had a bright idea to use the SetObjectPid to insure I was minimizing data collection, only to find out I couldnít use it, because a unique Object Id is required so I could reuse the same object and simply changes its PID.  My next attempt will be to use multiple object with ExecuteMultipleObjectAction to set State, Hide/Show, and SetObjectPid to a real value and also try setting to others to nothing. 

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.  FYI, just so you know, I travel 200+ days a year and this has been a fun hobby during my boring hotel nights.  Thanks PPE for a great app.

Howdy folks! loving dash command so far.

My question: Is there any way to export the data log video playback?  I would like to use it in videos. I prefer not to use third party apps to screen record.

I use an Iphone 5c.

I have an iPhone6s and a pioneer avh-x3800bhs. All the stock apps show up on the pioneer screen using appradio but the dashcommand app is never displayed. I have tried everything and all different sequences on starting up and connecting my obd2 scanner and starting the dashcommand app and appradio. My odb2 scanner and dashcommand works great with my iPhone6s. How do you get the dashcommand app to be one of the apps you can select in appradio?
My email is
Thank you

I would like to test the PCMSCAN OBDII software on my Win10 Surface, but am unable to connect via Bluetooth. I am using an Autoscan 2016 OBDII Bluetooth hardware dongle from Berry King; which claims to support PCMSCAN and successfully connected via Bluetooth to other software (OBD Car Doctor, Scanmaster ELM Demo) The error states "Failed to open OBD-II connection! Error 104: No OBD-II response. Try increasing the OBD-II response timeout". I have tried increasing the timeouts to their maximums and adjusting just about every possible available setting just to test. Should PCMScan work via bluetooth only? If so, any thoughts what else I can try? Tahnks in advance for your help.

This reading is estimated from fuel flow, which is calculated from MAF if it isn't directly available from the vehicle. Make sure you have the correct fuel type and engine size selected in the Vehicle Manager. If its still incorrect after that, you can adjust the Brake Specific Fuel Consumption (BSFC) setting to directly modify the power readout.
