Exclamation Shadow Dash MS for Android

Now you can use any Android device (2.2 or higher) as a MegaSquirt display and datalogger. This may look like a TunerStudio Dashboard, but it isn't TunerStudio; this screenshot is from Android!

Look close and you will notice the addition of accelerometer and speedometer data.








Once again MegaSquirt tuning software stands in front of competitors. Not only do you get mobile logging via your Android phone or tablet, but now the dashboards you have appreciated with TunerStudio have been brought to your Android phone or tablet as well. Actually those dashboards have additional support for images in indicators and gauges.
Now, Released for Final Round Beta Testing, Android dashboards and data logging with style.
  • Tunerstudio Dashboard Style and flexibility
  • Shadow Logger simplicity
  • MSL format data logging
  • Tune save & Load with normal msq files
  • Support for all MegaSquirt Firmwares
  • Slide between 4 Dashboards that are open at all times
  • Android Sensor data (GPS, Accelerometer, Magnetic, etc)
  • HUD Mode
  • Support for Android 2.2 and up.

Awesome! I've been looking forward to this, but that adapter is so large!

Are there any pictures of the adapter connected to MS? I'd like to see how large it is compared to the MS with the space available to work with.

I will take you a picture tomorrow of the adapter hooked to an MS3. I have been using the adapter fine since I think January or February.

It is about 12 inches long with the BlueTooth and MS3 connected to each other.

If you have fitment issues, couldn't you hook the BT adapter up to a short serial extension cable and put it anywhere you want?

Just FYI, myself and others have successfully bought the $~9 dollar bluetooth adapters on ebay and wired them in direct to the MS. These adapters are usually without a case so they can be easily mounted inside your MSx!

this is so awesome! Gonna slap this on my phone and hopefully get a phone mount that doesn't break. I can finally leave my tuning laptop off and still be able to check gauges

I was hoping it was "Tune, Save, & Load with 'normal' msq files"

I wouldnt want to tune on a tablet, much less on a phone. Save and load a tune ok, maybe change a couple of parameters. But full tuning would be a NIGHTMARE on a touch-only device.

USB or Bluetooth keyboards for tablets are cheap.
