Ok So I've figuerd out what the problem was, the CAN adaptor needed to have it baud rate adjusted (which you need additional software to do)

Has anyone got the BOOST/MAP value to show anything?  mine just stays static.  Admittedly this was just free reving the engine as its currently still on axel stands.

My next question is has anyone got a sensor that isn't in the "target identifiers" list to work?  I would like to show EGT but not sure how to yet

Hi, did you have any luck getting boost values and egt values to show?

I didnt look at your .xml yet, but attached is one that realdash done for me to try.  This is for the pre-configured "Generic Dash 2" (same as Dash2pro) stream sent on ID1000.  If this works then you can compare how it is formatted compared to yours.

link_ecu_short.xml 2.42 kB · 31 downloads

Where could i find list of parameters set up in the provided xml file?

I got realdash working thru can adapter and dashpro2 link thunder stream, only seeing limited values like rpm , ait, ect. Im still not seeing lambda, boost , ethanol, egt. 

Please point me in the right direction

Thank you

But as yet I don't have one to test.  

As a unrelated question, a while back you mentioned Link enabling the outbound data stream in the other ECU's like the Storm Black but it hasn't happened yet, is it still on the cards?

It has worked all along.  See this post:

Hi All,

The developers of RealDash have been working with us to make their app compatible with Link ECU's.  It is now compatible.

For those that havent seen it you can learn more here: http://www.realdash.net/

In my short play it seems to work well and has lots of cool features.  Lap timing, navigation, configurable alarms, live graphs, live streaming of data, music player, etc.  The app and a selection of basic "skins" are totally free, then there are some more fuller featured paid for "premium skins" that do more stuff such as data logging and may look cooler these are still relatively cheap ranging about $3-$10.  One example below.

Right now it wont work on the Atom, Monsoon, Kurofune or Black Storm as the serial stream is not enabled in those ECU's but we hope to enable that setting in the next couple of months.  Right now it will work in the Blue Storm, Xtreme, Fury, Thunder, all Plug-ins & Force.  It will also work on old G4/Vipec V series ECU's.

Connection to your tablet/smartphone is direct using your normal Link USB tuning cable, for phones/tablets that only have a micro USB port you will need a "Micro USB OTG adapter".   Instructions for setup and connection attached to bottom of this post.

 

 

Edit 18 Jan 2020;

Have added a zip folder with an example configuration for CAN connection using the generic USB or Bluetooth CAN Adapters (see realdash website for supported adapters).  This config also includes an example of how to send an onscreen button press to the ECU.

Yes they are, make sure you are logged in.

Yes, but better to use the realdash recommended CAN adapter (OBDlink MX+ is bluetooth and works with iOS), although it looks like a normal OBD2 adapter, it actually can do a direct CAN link rather than slow OBD2 requests.  OBD2 is much slower and has noticable lag.  http://realdash.net/manuals/supported_can_lin_analyzers.php

Probably a dumb question, but assuming I make the tweaks as described in that Realdash.pdf document previously posted to connect the Realdash app on my android smartphone via the USB tuning cable on my Link Fury G4+, would those changes prevent or impede me from using PCLink tuning software with a laptop?

Obviously not looking to run both apps off the same USB cable simultaneously; I just want to know if I would need to revert the tweaks required for connecting the Realdash/smartphone usage before plugging in the laptop again and using the PCLink app?

Thanks!

Hi can someone show real dash settings for usb/can. I changed the analyzer to 38400bps and 250hz and configured the can chanel in the LinkEcu but I can't get Real Dash to connect.
Can I set it to 500hz? I have the WB AEM connected on the same channel (CAN2) and it works at 500hz

Thanks!

I assume you mean 500Kbit/s.  You can use any bit rate you like.  My example was 250Kbit just because my dyno connection works better at that speed.

¿Cómo resolvió el problema?

I found it, AEM WB works at 500kbit and the can analyzer was at 250kbit. AEM WB had it turned off in the CAN configuration but it was still connected to the CAN input of Link. That gave the error, I set the analyzer to 500kbit and solved.
Now I am trying to get the CAN Di to work from Real Dash, if anyone can help I would be grateful

Hi, I am using can analyzer and Real Dash does not indicate speed.
Also Gear works intermittently.
The speed is on a Di4 and I use DASH2PRO to transmit on ID 1000 at 20hz.
Link ecu works correctly, speed and gear, could it be an error in the Real Dash XML file?
Greetings!

Go into Realdash, into Inputs & Values, and check that your Vehicle Speed data source is set right.

Edit:

I already have speed in another car, I changed the wheel selection in the Di on the link and now they work with any of the four...

The gears is what indicates one of more.  

I also just saw that the oil pressure displayed by Real Dash does not match that of LinkEcu

just download my files from the post above and then swap out the "<frames...>" for the "<frames>" and you are good to go. I can't explain it to you more, because it's not very easy for me to describe something complex like this 1. by text and 2. in english. But it's simple, just try to read my xml file and look at the pcl CAN settings and try to understand :)

I tried using your XML and copied your CAN settings from the pclink file over to my G4X and it's not working. In the can monitor on Realdash, "It says not connected" and on the next line under it "reconnecting". I know the cable works because I was able to transfer file to the double din.

Right now I have the Data Engineers Dream skin; are XML files skin specific? I am having trouble understanding how this whole thing is supposed to work.

In the first post there is a zip folder with a working CAN example from a G4X, including the dash config, xml and some breif instructions.  See if you can get that to work before diving in the deep end.  Note I had the bitrate set to 250Kbit in this example so do the same to keep it simple as a test.

Hi Adam, 

It's having connection issues. In the can monitor it cycles between a blank screen and:

"Timeout

Connecting..."

It's either the seedstudio adapter/PCLink/Realdash settings or the adapter plug I made. I'm using the CAN 1 plug on the XtremeX ECU instead of wiring it directly to Can2. 

Before tackling the software side, I want to make sure that the plug is wired correctly. I know the USB cable that's plugged into the android radio works since I could transfer files with it. 

I used the pinout from this post:

It wasn't the same situation but I figured it would give me what I need. This is the back of the male CAN/Tuning cable plug I bought:

 Capture-min.JPG.b7091cec0aeedefeb0fc8342cc658689.JPG

For me to use it with the Seedstudio can analyzer, I need a wire running from pin 1 (Grnd), Pin 3 (Can +), and Pin 4 (Can -) correct?

This is how I currently have it set up with the wires going to the CanAnalyzer's green plug with the screw terminals.

Hey Adam,

I configured the analyzer to baud of 11520 and then the can Bps to 250kbps as is shown in the the example file you pointed out. I decided to try and test the send receive function as outlined in the instructions that came with the adapter and I see it doesn't receive anything.

I can't help but feel that this is the cause of my constant connecting/timeout issue. Any advice you can give me?

 

Here is a snip of what I have in that configurator:

The default buad rate is 2000000, how many LED flashes do you get when you plug in the USB?  You dont need to change the bitrate in the USBCAN software, you do all the set up in realdash.  The only important thing is you need the USB dongle set to the same baud rate as you set in realdash.

I changed the baud rate to 11520. I don’t have it with me at the time of writing this, but I think it was 4 flashes, which was the corresponding number for 11520. 
 

Since I did change the bitrate, would that affect anything? I had the same issue even before changing that. When you run the set/start test, does your analyser only send and not receive as well?

Looks like you were right. I just double checked again and it was too high. I'll try setting up the can profile now to see if I can finally get this to work. I will report back

 

Edit: Looking at the Realdash can example, I don't quite understand what is going on on the ECU setup. Could you explain in a little more detail on how to set the streams up?
