Default iRev for iPhone/iPod Touch Review (video)

Well, it finally came in, my OBD II module. On this thread i intend to make a full review on the iRev Software for iphone/ipod touch. For those of you who do not know what it is, hit up www.devtoaster.com and there's tons of info there, so i'm not rewritting it all. Basically, it's an app for the iPhone/iPod that resembles the scangauge II except it shows other gauges and measurements as well as allows for data-logging, so you can review the data from your runs without having to stare down at your gauges. I'll be updating this thread more and more, as i do more video reviews. But for now, here's an unboxing video, i'm just editing the setup video and then the final review video will come along.

(i wish we could embed videos into the forums)

A quick video on how to install iRev on iphone, using PLX Kiwi Wifi module.

There's a part in the video in which the IP needs to be configured. I left that out because it took me about 5 minutes to figure it out:S But all you need to do is setup the IP address for the PLX module inside the iRev settings. Just think of the module as a small internet router, because that's basically what it is, except it supplies ECU data and not a connection to the internet.

PXL and iRev installation/setup video:

Looks like a neat little tool to have...the revs comparison in your video was pretty damn accurate. Im thinking of buying an ipod touch just for this app...lol

NICE!!! If I didn't have a SGII already, I'd be all over this. Awesome! I guess I'm most curious about the logging really. Like if you log boost, does it also show boost requested vs actual? If it only shows what you ran, it's not much help IMO. Very cool toy nonetheless!

it shows actual only with correction for barometric pressure already calculated, but they're working on more measurement metrics for the 2.0 update, which comes with the ability to custom scaling for each measurement, so my RPM gauge will read the same 5500 as the one on my dash.

I'd love to know if it will show tranny temp on automatic trans cars (like the Scan gauge can do in a round about way so I hear) and also if there is anyway to get values from the passat B5.5 stock EGT probe.

Too bad the software developer is less than forthcoming regarding "clearing codes."

As with anything else, a code can only be cleared if the problem no longer exists. Otherwise, it's coming back.

www.devtoaster.com there's links there for the hardware you can buy 3 types of modules, just pick the one you like.

Can you show boost and EGT in the same window? Getting this would pay for itself instead of getting gauges. Wonder if it works with the Android.

Impressive; software side seems really well polished.

Have a browse around here for more info on the hardware - including additional sensors:

yea, you can show boost and EGT in one window, it graphs it on a line graph.

I'm waiting for the 2.0 software release from DevToaster, i've been talking close to them, and they asked me to wait, for a few bugs the software has are being resolved, so it saves me time from posting a video twice.
