raspberry pi 4b? Tuner/flash data loging dashboard gauges

Postby V8Hilux84 » Sat Jul 18, 2020 5:11 pm

ok so ill cut straight to the point here is an idea.
raspberry pi 4b mother board pc 3.5 inch screen $130 aud
load it with a striped down windows 10 or os that can...
load it with tuner pro/pcm hammer and maybe 1 or 2 other diagnostic software
add a usb to obd2 cable
add 12 volt usb plug to supply power to raspberry
nvram board
get this to work and what have you got

a sub $500 tuning / hand controller / dashboard / dataloging (add gps data logging for track cars) and there is probably some features i cant think of that can be added.

no laptop/desktop required
even at the $130 price tag just loaded with a scan tool is going to give a scantool better than anything at that price.
ill have a raspberry in a few weeks to play with

iv only just got into delco tuning still taking it slow but this hit me and well?
Is this a good idea or not? :comp:

i'm all for learning new things but ill be starting from scratch. i'm only winging it to get this far 8-)

Its an arm processor so im not sure how you will go with windows. There is an arm version and pcmhammer is .net so would probably work but tunerpro is x86 so unless windows has a hardware compatability layer it probably wont work. Would be interesting to know. I'd like to do similar for my track car, and i'd like to know how many nits display brighness is needed in car for easy viewing in the sun.

This doesnt make windows sound terribly useful. https://www.windowslatest.com/2020/02/0 ... i-4-and-3/
I think you'd be better off with android and aldl droid as we discussed via PM https://konstakang.com/devices/rpi4/LineageOS16.0/
For windows on x86, with a touch screen, that can run tunerpro I think you'd need hardware like this which seems to start at about $350usd. Thats 4gb ram, 64gb ssd, 800x600 resolution display. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32860227194.html
For about $450usd you start getting in to reasonable spec machines, it just depends how much you want to spend and exactly what you want to do with it.
Edit: Maybe..... https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32976930739.html

Check the first comment here: https://thepi.io/how-to-run-x86-program ... pberry-pi/
I remember tying tunerpro under wine some time ago and it worked. Im not sure the serial layer would work, and what performance is like but qemu might be worth a try.

So while i'm waiting for the raspberry to turn up ill put the raspberry os in my desktop and see what's available and what i can do with it.

not going to lie my computer skills are BASIC.
so i have no bias and no bad habits..... and no skills :lol:

i'm in over my head so python or java? most relevant to what i want to know?

i'm in for an education even if i have to enroll in a on line course and pay.
