Default Raspberry Pi 3 and Tunerstudio

Hi all,

I'm looking for an easy solution to integrate a 2 DIN touch screen in the dashboard in order to run Tunerstudio and Tune Analyze Live in my miata.
Do you know if the Rasberry Pi 3 can run Tune Analyze Live ?

I have read that Tunerstudio worked on the Raspberry Pi 2 but Tune Analyze Live had some issues..

Thanks for the help.

I've been playing with the idea of doing something similar. I would probably go with something a bit more powerful like a banana pi since they're not much more expensive.

I can't even begin to image how frustrating it would be to use tuner studio on a small touch screen. It's bad enough with a keyboard and mouse.

Keep one of these in the trunk for serious work

I know this doesn't answer your questions, but FWIW: I tried and tried to force myself to use a mounted 10.1" Windows Tablet for tuning over the past year (HPTuners on a GM mostly). The issue is... none of the applications I've seen are setup well for touch. I kept a bluetooth keyboard very similar to what thenuge26 posted, but at that point it didn't make much sense. It did work great for a digital dash though, just getting around menus etc was a real drag.

See I had a touch screen laptop for tuning (well I still have one it's just a different one) and it was brilliant in that it's still easier to get around those menus with a touch screen vs a touch pad (even a large one like the one in my pic). I was able to turn off my "fixed 10 timing" setting I had turned on to check the timing while going 60mph down I-465. There's no way I could have done that with the touchpad.

But that may just be my preference.

It's possible that the touch resolution of your laptop is waaaay better than my $99 tablet too

I have an RPi3 at the shop I can play with, I'll see if it's plug n play.
I'd played around with the idea of using the CAN on the MS to play with data that way, but having tunerstudio around would be much more slick

Any news on this?
Has anyone found a UI that'll have tunerstudio, Radio and GPS working?

Another aspect to take into consideration is what double din device are you using that integrates with the RP, something like a carpc would work, and eliminate the need for a RP entirely, granted that's significantly more expensive, but already comes with windows, so theres that.

Well, I've gotten Tunerstudio to run quite well on my RPi3.
I was just going to use a GPS USB dongle, a small amplifier for the speakers, the RPi3, a Bluetooth Dongle, and a 7" tactile screen.
Just looking for a UI that'll work with TunerStudio AND audio...

Has anyone been using the standard Raspberry Pi 7" touch screen in the car? I'm mostly curious about glare and reliability of using it as an instrument cluster. My current plan is to have my Racepak IQ3s as my instrument cluster, and have a Raspberry Pi in my radio area. Now having the Racepak almost seems unnecessary since I'll be taking all the data through Megasquirt and transferring it over CAN to Racepak... why not just put the Pi in the cluster and not even worry about CAN transmission?

I've been looking into switching options, I found two sources that will take 12V inputs, but one of them has production on hold for a redesign. They use both constant and switched power, and safely shut down the Pi when switched power is removed.

Cool, will do. I still have original box, cables, sensors, etc.


I bought this dash. That's what got me thinking of using the Raspberry Pi as the instrument cluster. Now that I'm using a 0-5V oil pressure sensor on the LS1, I'd either have to use dual sensors to feed the Racepak, use a separate gauge somehow, or just use a warning light to get the reading in front of me. Having the Pi as a cluster would give me access to all warnings, CEL's, gauges, etc. The Racepak also wouldn't be able to display AFR2 since I'm using a wideband on each bank.

A replacement for the gauge cluster you say?

Is the hole there on the side for a fuel gauge? I'm pretty close to having this project wrapped up myself, just been out of the country on business for the last couple months.

Yes, it is. It is the only thing left to wire up. Tested GPS as a speedometer in TS and it works wonderfully on the track.

Awesome, I can't wait to get mine thrown in as well. What is the refresh rate of the GPS module that you used?
