Arrow My Winter Project

We're in for a long winter up here so I've gotten busy with my winter project. I thought some of you might be interested. I wanted to have a better/more complete instrument display and this is what I've come up with. It's got all the standard features as well as a few sweet additions. (e.g. wireless connection to the bike, A-GPS, totally configurable display, etc.) Here are the specs so far... But I'm adding more as the winter goes on. My VROD is stored for the winter so the data I'm using is from a NightTrain. (This will work on all Harleys with the JPW1850 interface)

Wireless, Portable, Full Color, Touch Screen, Integrated GPS

Instrument Display

Speed
RPMs - Digital Readout to 16K
Graphical Readout
Gear
Shift Light
Coolant Temp
Fuel Gauge
Average Fuel Economy
Distance Until Empty
Trip Odometer
Million Mile Odometer
Turn Signals
Indicator Lights
Security
Low Fuel
Low Battery
Check Engine
Check Oil
Check Coolant Temp
Countdown to Service
Heading (Graphical)
Altitude
Ambient Temp

Configuration Display

Display Units (US, Metric, UK)
Display Items Visible
Display Item Colours
Redline RPM
Coolant Temp Min/Max
Shift Light
Shift Point
Shift Light Type
Fuel Capacity
Pulley Teeth
Speed Calibration

Drag Display

Full Tree Display
Race Options
1/8 Mile
1/4 Mile
0-60 mph
0-100 mph
Custom Distance (mi)
Custom Speed (mph)
Race Results
RPM, Speed, Distance and Time for each shift point
RPM, Speed, Distance and Time at Finish
Time-stamped Save of Results


Logging Display

Store vehicle data
RPMs
Speed
Odometer
Fuel Consumption
Gear
Coolant Temperature
Warning Indicator States
Turn Signal State
Security System State

Store GPS data
Latitude, Longitude, Speed, Heading, Altitude

I've attached some pics...
1) a minimal display
2) addition of numerical RPM
3) addition of the other sensor displays
4) switch to metric, color change for speed display, gear as shift light
5) My internet table running the app (A nokia n810 - but I should be able to port this to Android and/or IPhone as well - it's on the list)

Let me know what you think. If anyone's interested I'll post more pics or info.

WOW!

That is an amazing project you've got going ...

If you can get it to work on the platforms you mentioned, you'll make a fortune! That is one of the best mods I have seen yet

Great work! But you'd better add another 1000 rpm for the V-Rod or none of the display will be red. And I hate to sound ungrateful, but you didn't mention a clock.

Thanks for all the kind words. You're never sure what you've got until you hear it from others. I kind of work in a vacuum up here. No v-rodders around and these winters are a real killer for us motorcycle enthusiasts.

tyson876: Will it fit in the stock cluster location?

It will be Ram mountable... The medium size Ram Aqua box provides a weather proof mounting box which is touch screen compatible. You can pretty much do what ever you want with the the stock gauge (keep it, remove it, whatever). Remember, the device is portable and most likely will be doing multiple duties (your phone, gps, web browsing, etc.). You could mount it permanently if you want but that wasn't my original design intent.

Tie_One_On R U thinking of selling these...?

Well, that's an interesting question... I was thinking of this as more of a DIY. When I get everything finished I'll post up complete instructions about how to build it yourself. I would probably charge some nominal cost for the software application mostly to recoup the cost of my time and maybe to purchase an upgrade to Nokia's new N900 Admittedly I did this as a fun project to keep me involved with the bike over the winter, but if I can make a couple of bucks to fund more bike mods or projects that would be totally cool.
That being said, if there was enough interest I would consider providing fully configured/ready to run systems as some cost. You would just have to supply your handheld device if you want it to run on something you already own.

As for other platforms...

TaxmanHog Droid!!!!!!!

o2man98 iPod Touch version please.

Strange as it sounds, I got my n810 on Thursday. I had never even seen one before. I wrote the entire application on a regular desktop PC. (That's right I have a huge honky PC and monitor out in my garage next to my bike. - not even a laptop for god's sake)
And I got the app running on the n810 in a day or so. I suspect it will be similar with android (I have their SDK). It might be a bit trickier with IPhone... but I'll take a look at that soon.
The current advantage to the n810 is that they are cheap. You can pick one up on ebay for ~ $200.


I've attached a few more pics to whet your appetite.

1) Display in regular tablet mode (i.e. windowed)
2) Configuration screen.
3) The Drag Display. (It's crude but it's coming along)
4) Drag Display after a simulated run.

More to come!
