Question about IQUAD gauges with my phone.

Recommended Posts

So I plan to jump on this train shortly, waiting for a check to arrive so I can get a Quadzilla Adrenaline with the wifi option.  I plan to use my current iphone 6, I was curious if I will need to have the app on all the time with gauges displayed for it to work or only if I want to see the extra gauges?  I may convince the wife to upgrade to a new iphone and I will use her 6S+ as a dedicated gauge display in my truck. I'm very computer illiterate, but after reading the info on the Quad multiple times, it's been making more sense. 

 

Another question, obviously I will be able to sell my comp and I don't imagine I will need my scangauge anymore either if I get a dedicated display.  Will the Quad allow me to change tire size in the computer or should I hang on to my smarty for that?

I highly recommend getting hte bluetooth not the wifi.  Andriod devices are SOOOO much cheaper when the time comes to replace it.

 

you don;t have to run gauges to run.  The tune apply process requires the device.

 

The quad cannot update ecm and abs items like tire size.

So the smarty will stay in the closet then.  I have a bad habit of changing tire size every time I get a new set.

 

I'm scouting CL now looking for a cheap used android phone, but my wife loves her iphones so much I doubt I would be without one.  She just got her's replaced with insurance but is still drooling over the new iphone 10.

I second the bluetooth version.  I have an iPhone and the wifi module wasn't that great at connecting.  The bluetooth is fantastic.  

Also, I believe the Smarty tire correction factor won't work unless a Smarty tune is loaded (right guys?)

That bracket is nice, followed your link and found one to hold a tablet as.  I found a 7" voyager pro tablet with 2 year anything goes warranty for $60.  Hopefully I can get this stuff ordered in the next week. 

 

I've been running the smarty on stock after my last keyboard lashing, haven't verified my speed yet, but I'm not passing anyone so I figured it was still good.  I'll just keep it in the closet and use it when I make that next trip to the tire store.

Well if you hook up with me I could program your Speedometer permanently without the Smarty locked VIN problem. I've got a CCD Network tool that allows for ABS speed adjustments. You might want to give me a call I'll be more than willing to do this for ya.

Man do I sometimes wish I leaved in your neighborhood, I'd be over there restocking your fridge with beer on regular basis lol. But that's probably why you leave where you do, you like you're space. Can't blame you for that.

My Quadzilla arrived today(Thanks Mike), not sure I'll have time to install it this week, but surely by next weekend I should have it in. 

 

You are Welcome. I'm glad you got it! Install is rather fast for the electrical being the only one wire to go into the dash. The rest is under the hood. EGT probe will take time to drill, tap, and install if you don't have a hole already.

I will have to drill and tap another hole for the EGT probe, I don't want my current gauge to not function but I do want the added protection of the Quadzilla monitoring it.  I already have an extra FP port and will put the temp sensor in the engine oil.  I do still need to remove my Comp and remount my CB now that I won't have the scan gauge strapped to it anymore.  I had to make a double bracket to give me the clearance, now I can tuck it up in the dash a little tighter.

Well it was so nice today, i decided to install the quad instead of my other plans.  Two things that annoyed me, first I thought the fuel pressure sensor was included so that was a let down, gonna take another $70 to get that sorted.  Second, I went to install the oil temp sensor and my heater lines are in the way.  I will need to go find a brass elbow for that to work.  Aside from accidentally unplugging my high idle switch and trying to fumble it back together, everything else went great.  That's a lie, I totally forgot the password for my tablet and had to do a factory reset and then I forgot to turn the bluetooth on so I spent like 10 minutes scanning for nothing.  I forgot what a dog these trucks are stock, got to get some tunes downloaded now.
