Would it be possible to see an active display of current engine statistics (air temp, throttle position, current boost, etc)?

If you browse the ideas section, there was a response to a similar question from one of their top people not too a long ago. They said they are working on implementing more descriptive fuel information and they might consider giving more detailed engine info as well.

Thanks for the feedback! We don't offer that at this time but providing more detailed info about your car is definitely something we plan to implement in the future. I can't say when or in what capacity, but you may want to check out this topic for a list of resources in our Community for some of our future plans.

Monitoring Engine Statistics.


Does Automatic monitor and display engine statistics like coolant temperature, oil temperature, and such. Just curious if this could be used like a ScanGauge in a Ford F-250 Turbo Diesel?

Greetings Bill! At this time, Automatic does not provide detailed engine stats, but we are planning to implement more data-driven stats in the future. Here's a link to the features and functionalities that we're planning to add.

Also note that we do not currently support diesels. There's a well-known issue when using Automatic with Ford diesels, and for this reason, we highly recommend that you do not plug the Link into these vehicles. Please see this topic for more info.

It would be so awesome if you would provide real time vehicle data like Torque: https://torque-bhp.com/wiki/Main_Page. The automatic app could keep its super simple view and provide the meatytech data in an alternative view. :) Alternatively, how about providing a more standard API (ELM) and just left folks use Torque. Thanks for the listen!

Thanks for the idea, Michael. At this time, we don't have plans to implement detailed engine stats into the app. Right now, our hardware only works with the Automatic app, but we are working to expand our API's capabilities in the future :) There's no ETA right now, but we'll be sure to update this related discussion once some progress is made.
