Ts Dash

Hey I was wondering if anyone has experience with Ts dash. I love my analog dash but I am just tired of having to fix 30+ yr old electronic parts and grabbing my laptop every time I want to see info in tuner studio. So I was gonna make some sort of Rpi4 + screen and use Ts dash. Thanks!
 
Is the pi-dash as simple as it sounds? Just get the PI, a screen, sd card, TS-dash and it works? I haven't used it yet but am intrigued.
 
It’s a custom os, boots straight to tuner studio. I would just get the kit. You could diy, I just know that the pidash is stable, and the screens are decent quality.

But yea, it’s that straightforward. You can also just get the os, a load that on a pi.

This is the best option but I’m cheap so I’ll probably go the diy route.
 
At nearly 2x the pidash, it’s not my favorite option. The aem cd software isn’t really fantastic, and no ability to do anything other than view, it’s a good thing for someone, but not for me for the price tag.

I used a cd-7 logger dash for 2 years on my motor dyno and it has its place, but for the budget diyer, it’s low on my list.
 
TS Dash is cool you just need a good tablet. You could even use an android phone.

I have an old tablet with a usb port so it connects to the microsquirt just as easy as a Pc.

Im thinking about doing a pidash in the future but with a big wide touchscreen.

yeah I was thinking the same thing but with the prices of RPi these days, not sure it really makes sense anymore.

Pi's are coming back in stock and prices are actually dropping.

There are a bunch of clones on the market that can do the same thing.

I bought a OrangePi 3 LTS a couple months ago for a project.
It would work if your not interested in using a touchscreen.
It doesn't have a SPI/DSI interface so your are limited to HDMI for video output.

oh good news! yeah I was looking into knock offs but haven't really researched quite yet.
 
I am actually running Shadow Dash on a tablet, not TS Dash. Sorry for the confusion.

I did some research and it seems like TS Dash is the better alternative so I might start a thread on it when I start that project.

Check out this video.

He explains how the Pi can create a echo network which lets you wireless connect your PC to the micro-squirt
 
I run full TunerStudio on a Pi 3b+. It auto boots into dash mode, and I can also autotune with it. It doesn't look like TS Dash will do autotune and I don't want to run a laptop in the car while on the track.

It does take a long time to boot.
 
Depends on the guts. With a full built in pidash, it would probably be around the CD7 dash or so depending on screen size features, ~1k or so.

With a simple segmented digital display like the intelletronix here, closer to a standard aftermarket dash. 5-800 or an empty housing and a couple laser/waterjet cut parts for around 450-500 depending on what you’re after.
