1HZ Monitoring - anyone displaying engine data on a tablet?

Unread post by horn20 » March 26th, 2018, 5:15 pm

Hi all.
Well, I’ve just spent nigh on 10k rebuilding my 1HZ to turbo specs. It now has all the fruit.
Runs like a dream, and I’m loving having her back on the road.
I run a Samsung tablet on the dash for off road mapping, gps speedo, trip data and so on.
Question:
Has anyone worked out how to display engine data on a tablet?
I am looking for:
Engine oil temp
Engine oil pressure
Coolant temp
Battery voltage
And maybe a tacho

Obd2 doesn’t exist on my 97 80 series so thats out, and I can’t seem to find any info bar buying another bloody box to mount somewhere in the cab for a few hundred dollars.

I’m a bit of a tech geek so would love to have an obd2 style display on my tablet, and really want to keep an eye on the engine parameters while I’m motoring about.

Many thanks.
