Megasquirt ECU integratation

Post by MX5RACER » Wed Jan 30, 2013 6:34 pm

There is an app in iTunes that will allow you to connect your i-device via blue-tooth to a Megasquirt. Are there any plans to get this type of feature in Harry's?

Great product, by the way. I have been amazing people at my local tracks for over year now. Recently started to export the data into Exel and graph things between multiple drivers to see where time is lost and gained. Works extremely well. I run with a track day group and I got the event organizers hooked on Harry's. They also have an iPad with the app loaded on it. I showed them how to use the online feature and get realtime (Sort of) lap times and positions on the iPad while their driver's and others were running.

Thanks for the feedback!

MS looks interesting but seems to narrow the group of potential users a lot (please keep in mind - even LapTimer is no mainstream app). I will keep this on my list but need strong triggers to get it prioritized against all other requests. Thanks for your understanding.

Any chance this is on the radar?

There are a bunch of Track Data display devices already integrating this data. The newer versions of Megasquirt ECU's (MS2, Microsquirt, MS3, DIYPNP etc.) can communicate thru CANBus using a Serial/Wifi adapter. I would be really happy to help you in any way possible. I know one of the guys who works with DIYAutotune developing some of the Megasquirt products. I can ask him any specific questions you may need answered.

Here is some information about Megasquirt communications:

Hi,

The connection is not the issue, LapTimer has everything to connect to wifi sensors built in already. The challenge is the effort one needs to spend to add a parser for the MS output. Availability of a test device can probably be solved by using their test server (although it doesn't work currently). I do not see I can add this any time soon but will need someone to volunteer on the parser some time. I plan to add a sensor plug in framework - which allows third parties to add arbitrary sensors like the MS - but that is not yet available. I will post on the Announcements forum once I can provide the framework for development and testing.

I was hoping this would be possible one day. My track car is is obd1 and this feature would motivate me to get a MS just so I can get the additional data.

If there is anything I can do on the Megasquirt side to help this along, please let me know.

Once Harry releases his "API" you could write a plugin ;-)

I use MS on all my cars so this would be a good thing for me :-)
