One of the cool things about the OBD2 system is that you can easily create custom dashboards with gauges on your phone or tablet. These will provide you with live and accurate information from your vehicle. To do this, all you need is one of our OBD-AUS OBD2 scanners and an app on your phone or tablet.
We will take you through the steps below to show you how easy it is to make your own digital dash board.
How to do create OBD2 Gauges and Dashboards?
Step 1: Plug your OBD-AUS scan tool into your car’s OBD port. This will most likely be just below your steering wheel and looks like a triangle with the top cut off. You can see in the picture below that the OBD2 port is under the dash by the clutch pedal.
Step 2: Download an OBD2 app to your device. we have a post here where we explain which ones we suggest.
Step 3: Go into your phone’s Wi-Fi (If Apple) or Bluetooth. Connect to the device called OBDII. The password will be 1234.
Step 4.:Open the App and build your dashboard. You can do many things in these apps. It can even create vehicle profiles so that you can have a trip computer as well on your custom dashboard.
