How to add OBD Data in video overlay

Postby 2006Z06 » Sat Apr 15, 2017 3:21 pm

Hi Everyone...I was wondering if there is a way to add additional OBD sensor data to the video overlay? As an example, can I add say oil temperature to the video?
At a minimum, how can I collect additional data elements from the OBD data stream so I can analyze them later?
Thanks! the app by the way!!

Oil temperature is shown provided the car delivers this PID using the standard OBD II parameter. Many cars deliver engine coolant only. The list of OBD PIDs requested by LapTimer is listed in viewtopic.php?f=39&t=2748. They are optimized in update frequency to not waste bandwidth. Every additional PID requested will reduce update rate, so I'm very picky with adding new parameters.
