Mallie, I'm using an iPad Air 2. I'll share just as soon as I see it live connected to the adapter. Still waiting on it to arrive.

Still tweaking things, hard to find the best colors and layout ... how much to include, how much to not include ...etc.

Not sure what the difference between 'Driver Torque' and 'Engine Torque' is, and don't like that it's displayed as a percentage.

Here's another layout.

Looks like the BlueFire app plays nicely in split screen mode on an iPad. Here's a layout I did optimized for split screen with Google Maps on the right side.



The right side is left blank.

A shot of BlueFire for Motor Homes displayed on my 10 inch Simbans Tango Tab. No data being displayed, just playing around with different gauge arrangements. Will take another trip soon and get pics with live data,

Look nice Dick. Your planning on mounting yours in a portrait rather than the landscape position?

Kip, my mount is presently located to the far right of the WL dash, above the drink holders & will quickly adjust to accommodate either portrait or landscape position. I have designed 4 or 5 different BlueFire dashes and can re-load another...depending on my mood.

My new BlueFire digital gauge will be my 'primary' display and the 20 year old analog gauges will now become secondary. Kinda nice to not have to scan so much real estate when doing a scan. The analog gauges on the Wanderlodge dash, while really cool, are truly scattered all over "****'s half acre".

Just curious if anyone has one on a DDEC coach?
I have the OBD shaped connector not the round Deutsch style.

Very interesting, I downloaded the app for Apple and will most likely order the adapter this weekend. Thanks for sharing.

Default Correct Oil Pressure?

Just curious, has anyone that has installed the BlueFire in a M380 (Cummins ISL) been able to see an accurate oil pressure reading, as opposed to the 55-PSI programmed display? Everything I've seen indicates the BlueFire still does not register accurate oil pressure.

Update to my last post. This is what my diagnostic ports look like. I think these are GM ALDL connectors vs the Allison style connectors. There aren't any markings on them so.. The black connector is what I currently have connected to my Silverleaf JIBB, the male plug is to the Silverleaf itself. The gray connector is to the Allison ECU. Now to find an adaptor....


EDIT: Found an adaptor and it matches the wiring from my previous post with the diagram from Silverleaf.
