Windows based dash board gauges

Will here goes
I'm trying to run a windows touch screen for my gauges (an app) in dash on my TJ I'm running a 5.7 Chevy and I was going to connect to the obdI port and running everything thru the 7 inch touch screen window based computer. has any one tried or is doing this, any input would be great.
If any good ideas for a 7 " or so touch screen that would work good for this application.

Haven't hooked it up my ODB port, but I do have an 8" Xenarc touch screen in the dash and it works great



It's connected to a laptop mounted under the passenger seat:

That is pretty neat. Do you utilize it for navigation as well as for music? Or is it simply cool factor?

Either way, its cool.

What about just getting a 7 inch tablet running windows? I'm doing the same thing but for obd2 and with droid and it's amazing thus far. Along with the above mentioned, cameras, music, navigation it's killer


Are you looking to use tuner pro or?

I was told that the 89 5.7 Chevy runs a window based program OBDI and that I would need a windows base touch screen. apple and droid based will not work, I looked in to the kindle fire and was told that will not work. I like the to run revtech or some app the has gauges fuel temp oil. Plus use it at a gps and music

I think you misunderstood what I said,

I have a droid based tablet for my obd2..yippy for me.

What I was saying is there are already, and soon to be more tablets running windows 7 and 8 is on the way. That's what I'm telling you to find to meet your needs.

I used WinALDL for data logging and sensor reading on my Chevy OBDI setup.

The dash board isn't that great but it was the best around for OBDI...

I have not done much with TunerPro - but it is supposed to have a dash (I think...)

If you're asking if I put windows 7 on a droid, i didn't.

I am saying there will be and are already windows based tablet.

If you have a droid and obd2, read up on a app called torque to do what I and others on here are doing.

I think the pay version does, the free version doesn't.

I'm not sure he's going to get the gauges he wants out of a 89 computer. Fuel and oil aren't hooked to the computer in any way that would make for a good gauge.

What exactly are hoping to see on the dash Bugalowjeep?
