I replaced my Davis Instruments CarChip with the Automatic recently and I was surprised that you offer such limited functionality in your product. My previous product not only logged over 300 hours worth of information to the chip itself, but it also allowed logging of any four out of 23 user-selectable engine parameters, including:

• Throttle position
• Engine load
• Fuel pressure
• Fuel system status
• Short- and long-term-fuel trim
• Battery voltage
• Timing advance
• Coolant temperature
• Air flow rate
• Intake air temperature
• Intake manifold pressure
• Oxygen sensor voltage

Can you please make this feature available. We would also love to have this information available via the API.

Thanks for the idea David! You're right, we only display a portion of what's available to us through the OBD port. While we never set out to be a competitor or a clone of some of the more technical products out there, we do at least plan to add more real time data in the future.

You said, "we do at least plan to add more real time data in the future." I don't see this yet. If I can't access my car's raw data with this product, I plan to return it to the store for a refund.

Hi there, Vaughn. At this time, we don't have any plans to implement functionality in regards to raw engine data, but having said that, the web dashboard does allow you to export past driving data into a .CSV file. Check out this FAQ for more details.

We hope you stick with us! Here's some more information on the features that are available to you.
