DashCommand™ for Mobile

DashCommand™ is loaded with features, including performance monitoring, a skid pad, race track, virtual dashboards, virtual gauges, inclinometer, and OBD-II data logging & diagnostics (find out why your check-engine light is on). Using WiFi technology and a supported hardware interface, you will be able to connect your Apple or Android phone to your OBD-II compliant vehicle and monitor, log, and playback vehicle information and parameters (skid pad, race track, and inclinometer features are fully functional even without an OBD-II connection).

Please see the hardware page for more information on supported devices and OBD-II interfaces.

DashCommand™ supports all OBD-II and EOBD compliant vehicles whether they be US, Asian, or European.

Supports all OBD-II protocols: SAE-J1850 (PWM and VPW), ISO-9141, ISO-14230 (KWP2000), and ISO-15765 (CAN).

*1996 is the year the OBD-II system was standardized for passenger vehicles sold in the United States. In Europe, this was standardized in 2001 for gasoline vehicles and 2004 for diesel passenger cars. Please verify that your vehicle is OBD compliant before purchasing.

Awards and Recognition

DashCommand has been awarded SEMA Show 1st runner-up for best mobile electronics and is a four-time SEMA Global Media Award winner! It was voted one of the best deals for under $300 by Truckin' magazine.

DashCommand™ Features

Virtual Dashboards

High quality dashboards utilizing our patent-pending DashXL™ technology. DashCommand™ comes with pre-loaded dashboard skins for both portrait and landscape modes. The DashXL™ skin sets include multiple dashboards with buttons to navigate between them. Each dashboard features a different gauge layout, so you can choose the right one for you.

These dashboards are built using our DashXL™ editor (accessible from the Tools menu of any of our freely downloadable Windows software applications). Using the DashXL™ editor, you can design custom dashboard layouts, so you can make them look just the way you want (and even share them with your friends)!

OBD-II Diagnostics

DashCommand has full support for OBD-II diagnostics. Find out why your check engine light is on, read and clear diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs). Supports over 220 OBD-II parameters.


DashCommand provides an easy way to monitor the performance of your vehicle. Data log what your vehicle is doing and determine your 0 to 60 time, quarter mile time, horsepower, and braking performance.


Customize your own gauge display with hundreds of options to choose from. Popular gauges include average fuel economy, torque, air fuel ratio, and the boost vacuum combo gauge.

Skid Pad

Professional skidpad showing real-time lateral, acceleration, and braking G forces. Clearly marked G-force circle visually plots the G forces and keeps a record that you can instantly understand. It also features indicators showing your maximum left, right, acceleration, and braking G forces.

Race Track

Visually maps out your path as you drive around the race track. Displays your current location and whether you are accelerating or braking in clear and easy to see colors. Visually analyze different race track laps to see how acceleration and braking changed from lap to lap.


Do you like to go off-roading or rock crawling? The inclinometer functions as both a tilt meter and a slope meter. Give yourself a little more confidence when off road, showing the roll and pitch attitude of your vehicle. Handy in terrain where the horizon is not horizontal or when wheeling at night and you can't get a good visual reference. Easily toggle between two different modes of display.

Other Features

  • Display sensor data directly from the factory computer in your vehicle
  • Record and playback log files showing OBD-II data and also skidpad/race track data simultaneously
  • Vehicle manager helps you keep track of different vehicles and log files automatically
