    do I actually got this all going and working. I found the connector from an online, I think from mouser or something and made a cable out of CAT 5. I got the code all going and now I just need to get the wiring in order.

    PClink software on a Vi-pec unit

    Hey Guy I am just now getting back to this and working on this car some. Can I flash the firmware with the Link g4 Software and working the same? and Grant the connection speed seems to be quite laggy. sometimes 10 sec for values to start showing real time, just really wanting to make sure this might not be causing any other issues.

    Hey CamB, can you do me a favor. I am having a bit of trouble getting the code I have working. I am also trying to purchase a can bus cable to connect to my ECU and can't seem to find one, can you point me in the right direction to purchase one of these? Mike- Hey Paul, here is the code I am using.When you get a chance let me know what you see or think. Mike- canbus.zip
  5. I have been trying to figure out if the link software will work with the Vi-pec ECU. I like the layout of the PClink software better and the color and background is a little easier on the eyes "out of the box". I have got it to connect but the latency is pretty bad. does anyone know the steps would be required to correct this, I.E. Firmware update/change or anything else like that. Thanks you!

    sorry to dig this up from its grave. I have looked at this code and tried to get a page flip to work. after not working I checked out the code and I dont see where the page flip would be in code. I have tried to place the code but I am not sure where it should go. anyone have any ideas on this? I believe it should go some where around here. void loop() { for(int i=0;i<NR_OF_CHANNELS;i++ ) read_channel(); if (digitalRead(UP)(millis()-500 > last_click && flip_request ) { current+=4; if (current > NR_OF_CHANNELS - 4) current=0; last_click = millis(); flip_request = 0; } flip_request = 0; display_page(); print_to_serial(); delay(10); } can someone correct me if I am wrong or point me in the right direction. Thanks guys! Mike-

    I know this post is old. Any one here interested in showing their code? I just want to look at the interfaces and a overall board design so I can get a little feel for this. I am doing some basic with this but still have some stuff to do and other things.
