I notice that the Default gauge size is 66.6% on both iPads...interesting. It appears as though the Import function will resize appropriately; good stuff.

Thanks again!!
You'e welcome, Steve. Good to know that the IOS files will automatically resize, so thanks for posting that info.

I imported my iPad layout to my 10" Win 10 tablet and it did not automatically resize, which isn't really surprising since they're different platforms.

When I was adding gauges to my dash layout I was occasionally running into a problem where it would appear to drop gauges I had previously placed. For an example I would have six gauges on my screen. I would then double tap an open area to add a gauge, but when I went back to the dash screen there were only four of the previous gauges showing.

It was driving me nuts, so in case anyone else runs into this problem here is the solution that worked for me.

After placing the new gauge. double tab an open area and select Load Custom Dash. Select the name of the file you're working on, and then press the blue Merge Dash button. When you go back to the dash view all of the previously place gauges plus the new one should be there.

I would recommend saving the layout you're working on regularly.

I also found that BEFORE you select to VIEW DASH, after importing a new one, you must orient your iPad/Tablet correctly. Otherwise, the gauges will just be stacked on top of each other, or in a completely wrong location.

I proved this on all three of my devices; iPhone, iPad Pro and mini.

I ordered one yesterday I hope to have it by Tuesday so I can use it on our way to a Tampa. Hopefully we can compare displays.

Turns out my Surface Pro fits right in the insert over the steering column after adding spacers to the lower mount screws for the trim. If this thing works, it could get a better mount and be my new "glass dash". For the first run, I'll just stick it on the Nato mount for the phone.

If you all have control of your design I suggest a dark background instead of white. (or day/night mode)

I downloaded the ap to my tablet last night to start setting it up while I wait for the adapter from bluefire, seems pretty easy to use, but slow to react when I make changes or toggle between screens. It may be my tablet, I'm not sure. One thing I was looking forward to seeing is the fuel economy. I know vmspc can display it, but I don't see it in the menu for bluefire. Am I missing something?

My Win 10 tablet is much slower than my iPad when toggling between gauge selection and dash view.

For the fuel info, on the main menu screen click on Drive and then scroll down to Fuel Economy.

My windows 10 laptop with an 8th gen i7 and 16gb ram is slower than my android phone with this app.

I think it is specifically written for the android and apple products and windows is a emulation mode for compatibility.

Plus I don't have GPS functionality on my Win 10 without using a Dual external GPS receiver. Looks like I'll be switching to the iPad in lieu of the Win 10 machine I was using for VMSpc.

So, will any google driven pad will work better with this than a Windows based pad? If so, I'll probably end up buying a cheap unit as a stand alone display for the system.

As long as it's Android or IOS it should work.
