    Hi I have been doing research on making digital gauges for my Pre-OBD car. I see that some other systems, based on arduino, are accepting input from temp sensors and other types of system info.

    Is anyone doing that with the 4d system?

    Thanks

    Hello Paul,

    Pre-ODB Car? As in pre ODB0, ODB1 etc? So no ECU as such? Classic Car?

    To answer your question, it's very feasible to do without an Arduino, but it does depend what you are wanting to achieve. If you use a Diablo base display module for example, that has Analog Inputs, Digital Inputs/Outputs, counters, PWM, etc etc.

    Regards

      What I am hoping to do is simple:

      Oil Pressure.
      separate left and right cylinder head temp (corvair engine)
      gas guage
      Tachometer.
      Speedo

      I was hoping to use several of these: http://www.4dsystems.com.au/product/uLCD_220RD_AR/

      And a master one of these: http://www.4dsystems.com.au/product/uLCD_70DT_AR/

      Depending on how the large display might be incorporated into a satnav or stereo. If not possible, would just opt for something like this: http://www.4dsystems.com.au/product/uLCD_32PTU_AR/

      not sure what is available on the satnav. Regarding the stereo, I usually just stream off my phone, so I could do some sort of bluetooth module to the arduino?

      Thanks.
