  1. Additionally, it would also be great if we could copy cell/selection/table values from the compare file to the main file.
  2. This is a feature request for something that I think would be really handy. When in compare mode and looking at a table in 'graphic' mode (e.g. a chart), especially for 2D tables, it would be really handy if you could overlay the two charts. That way you could visually see the difference in the map. Currently it highlights red points that are different, but the only way I can find to see the difference is to switch back to table view. I realise this might be fairly difficult for 3D tables, but for 2D tables it should be quite easy to graph the 'comapare' values on the same chart as a different colour line or something. Update: Additionally, it would also be great if we could copy cell/selection/table values from the compare file to the main file.

    RTD EGT Problems

    Hi Nick - No update that I have heard. I still have my Cal table divided by 10 as a workaround. Cheers, Martin

    RTD EGT Problems

    Thanks Adam, I noticed in the CAN setup "Test Calculator" the RTD EGT only has a resolution of 10deg, presumably to allow the much larger range necessary for exhaust temps. I suspect there is just a "divide by 10" missing from the calculation somewhere. Can I get a copy of the MicroTech "Automotive CAN protocol V2.0" datasheet? The dash seems to be capable of receiving a lot more inputs than those listed, so maybe it is a newer version of the protocol. If I can get the datasheet, I will try to reverse engineer the additional values I want to send (EGT, Oil Temp, etc.). But I can't seem to find this datasheet online. Cheers, Martin

    RTD EGT Problems

    I am currently wiring and setting up my VL Link plugin ECU. I have an AEM RTD EGT (http://aemelectronics.com/files/instructions/30-2050 RTD Temperature Sensor Kit.pdf) wired to AN T4, and entered the calibration table to match the one in the document (Cal Table.png). However, if I set AN T4 to be "RTD EGT", it seems to take the calculated temperature and then multiply it by 10. The picture EGT1.png shows the value with the engine off (cold) and a resitance of about 222R across the sensor, and it is showing 300 degrees. I expected to see about 30deg. After a lot of mucking around I figured out that if I set AN T4 to be "Fuel Temp", or any setting other than "RTD EGT", then it displays the temperature correctly (EGT2.png). However, setting it to "RTD EGT" just seems to multiply the calculated value by 10 for some reason. I have worked around this by dividing the cal table values by 10 (Cal Table 2.png), but I would prefer not to have to do this if I don't have to. Is this x10 functionality by design? Why? I couldn't find anything in the doco about it. Or is it a bug? Secondly, I have a MicroTech LTC display dash connected, and the RTD EGT temperature value does not seem to be sent to it. I expected to see it as "EGT-1". Can this be added in the next firmware version? Or can it be configured using a "Custom CAN Stream" as mentioned in the doco? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Martin
