    More displays woo-hoo!

    I'm really excited for this. Especially when I get my upp'ed turbos installed. The second video explains more about what the features do and how they work (calibration wise).

    Posted by Calvin@Vishnu:

    Greetings!
    Here's some video clips that Shiv gave me this morning. It shows some new new free features we just got working. We expect to have this firmware update posted up for public use either tomorrow or Wednesday.

    What's new:

    1) Methanol Flow Display
    Initially, we were thinking about having it display in a gauge but that would make a pretty boring gauge since the flow signal is almost binary (on/off) 99% of the time. So Shiv came up with the idea of having it turn on both turn signal lights when meth flow was greater than or equal to the max flow value you specified in the Injection Mode user adjustable parameter. It turned out great since it's far easier to see those lights while looking straight ahead at the road than glancing down at a needle gauge. So this means when the turn signal lights turn ON, you know that you are full on map 2 settings and that meth is flowing properly. When the turn signal lights turn off or flicker on/off, this means that meth isn't flowing properly or at all and that the Procede is not running fully at map2 settings. For now, this display function is always ON when running in Progressive Methanol mode (Injection mode greater than 0).

    2) Wide Air/Fuel Ratio Display
    This value displays on the oil temp gauge (when this display mode is selected). The minimum reading indicates 20:1. The maximum is 10:1. Which means the middle reading is 15:1 or approx stoich. Very simple and self-explanatory. This gauge displays the leaner of either bank1 or bank2 AFR readings. So it's very helpful in disagnosing a bad or flaky o2 sensor. Or a failing fuel pump. Or, in the case of upgraded turbos operating at high boost, running beyond the limits of the stock fuel system.

    So, in summary:
    Display Mode 0= standard gauge displays
    Display Mode 1= Boost gauge active
    Display Mode 2= Boost and AFR gauge active

    3) Tachometer Map Selection Display
    Soon this will replace the SES light flash feature since not all cars worldwide have an SES light. So when you switch maps (by double-clicking the DTC button), the on-board computer screen will go blank, indicating that you are in Procede Display Mode. And the tachometer will display your active map# (0RPM for valet, 1000RPM for map1 or 2000RPM for map2. Upon start-up, it will also go blank and display the map#. When starting in Valet mode, however, the display features are completely disabled as many people have requested.

    4) There are some more "Easter Eggs" and new features hidden away in there.

    Here are some videos showing the new display features in action (ignore the brake light... broken brake pad sensor ):

    Good pullover. Seems like we are getting all the bells and whistles all at once this summer.

    Could you imagine having boost, meth flow, ignition advance and IAT all displayed using your speedo, tach, fuel tank and oil pressure gauge?

    I would be confused as $#@!.

    ^^ Exactly!

    I like the concept but i would rather have one gauge such as a plx device, which can display afr,boost,egt,oil pres,ait's all in one gauge. Maybe something even the hks camp2 as well

    good point, it could get messy huh? i like the easy turn on/off though right at your stick hand. i hope they have a way to make some gauges and some not (which they do via cycling through double-hazzard-clicks, but not in the user-interface) and everyone of them customizable to whatever reading the user wants in the program also.

    Pretty cool indeed, I really like the use of the hazards for meth flow.

    I'll stick with gauges rather than freaking out because my instrument cluster is going haywire from all these new readings.

    Don't forget that your brain is tuned to understand moving needles and what they represent without actually having to focus on the graduated marks. I can easily see someone get confused/distracted during a race because he sees his oil temp at 280 for a split second.

    That's just me though.

    They flash once when you use the hazard light switch to change between
    display modes. Don't light up outside when signalling meth flow.
