I purchased Dashcommand a couple days ago and gave it a shot today. I had a few issues. First when it did get connected the data rate was pretty erratic. The RPM would update very fast for a couple seconds and stutter badly then go smooth again. The OBDII reader is on it's own usb port.
I tested entering standby and resuming and this caused dashcommand to stop updating. I also turned off the ignition and then started the car again and it wouldn't reconnect automatically. I would have to close the program and start it again.
I hope there is a way to get this thing to auto reconnect in both these situations or else it's not going to work for me as a digital dash.

That's strange - It shouldn't be having those issues.

What is the year/make/model of your vehicle? Also, what brand of OBD-II interface are you using with it and what dashboard are you using that's giving the erratic results?

My car is a 2002 BMW 330ci. The interface is an elm327. The dashboard is the default dashboard.

The only thing that I can think of is that your vehicle may not be responding to OBD-II requests fast enough, which could be causing DashCommand to time out.

Can you download our PCMSCAN software and data log Engine RPM and see if you see the same results?
