    This is a better look at my digital gage package I put together.. Lets break it down so evey one thinking about this set up knows what up

    first the tablet is a MeMo 7 (me17cx tablet) its runs for $80 to 112 bucks and has ok cameras( race videos or dash cam for accidents) a great screen plus built in gps .. not internet gps the link below has all the specs
    http://www.asus.com/us/Tablets/ASUS_MeMO_Pad_7_ME176CX/

    next up is the Vgate 1.5 its the cheapest one you can get its about 4 bucks and its all you need but thay are on version 3 now.. and I have a newer on order.. its just a little smaller so it will fit behind plastic cover in the fuse area.. this set up requires you leave it off.. not a deal breaker... I leave it in my center counsel but im just looking for a cleaner set up.. Im getting a Icar3 updated dongle its about 15 bucks

    this is the link for the newer models.. if you want an older one just go to amazon and search v gate..

    http://www.accurateobd2.com/

    I also bought the Torque App pro form the Google play store.. its $5.00

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...l.torque&hl=en

    I hope this helped every one..

    112.00 tablet
    4.00 dongle
    4.95 Torque app
    12.95 10-7 in tablet holder from amazon.. (* sorry no link)
    =133.90
    not bad for some good gages and some data logging.. and the tablet works as a better brain for you base model head unit and does maps and navigation better as well.. just plug your axu cable in to the head phone jack or if you are not using your Torque app just sink with blue tooth..

    more coming soon happy modding

    Dude very informative! I like the tablet holder. My laptop has Bluetooth and since I don't have a seat I was thinking of making a holder like a cop car lol

    Hmm, tempting, very tempting. I was toying with the ODBII thing, had one of the Scantool WiFi items on pre-order, but decided to cancel, mainly as it would not have fitted behind the fuse cover, and I want that in place, and didn't really want to mess around with either take the OBDII connector out of it's location, or using a splitter / extender cable.
    The reason for the WiFi was that I was going to use it with my iPhone, though I do have an Android tablet lying around not doing anything, so it might make more sense to use that. I'll be very interested if your new OBDII dongle does allow you to hide it behind the fuse cover.

    Markus, you can get a 16 to 20 pin dlc converter cable for under 10 bucks and run the adapter off the diagnostic port under the hood.

    i'm looking in to that as well. precrack told me about this set up after I had made my order.. I guess with that set up is tucking the dongle away under the hood and water proofing..it a little. like a tiny Tupperware container or something and putting next to the battery.. that's where the port is in the bay.
