Your M11 is the precursor of the ISM engine. under the dash you should be able to find the J1708 plug (6 pin). Coach is Monaco Diplomat. That is plug I have on my 2000 ISC engine. I get the following:
Tach
Speedometer
Boost Pressure
OIl Pressure
Coolant (engine) temperature
Transmission temperature
Voltage
Current and Selected Gear
Cruise control state and set speed
Local time
Engine Load.
Calculated fuel usage
Hope that helps

Fuel economy, Trip distance, and Exhaust Temperature



I learned on a recent trip that the engine fan does not work like I thought it did. I always thought it went to high speed when the chassis AC was turned on like a car. Apparently there is also a temperature sensor in the equation. Using the AC on a moderately cool humid day the fan only went to high speed once.


Ptw this is the exact setup I would like to have. Is that an iPad inside a ram mount?
Is the setup fairly easy as it relates to connecting the data output to the iPad input?

Yes it is an iPad Air 2 with the RAM suction cup mount. I used a Dremel to enlarge the hole slightly for the data port to make it easier to plug in and make sure there was no pressure on the connector.

I liked BobGed's setup. Figured I would try it with the suction cup before I did something more permanent. The suction cup worked very well on a 1400 mile trip with the exception that I have to take it off the window to close the driver side window shade.

Great thank you. So I would need the ram mount, iPad, and the $200 device? Is it easy to install?

Order the Bluefire adapter from the Bluefire Store. Use the coupon code Amazon and get $19 off. So about $176 with shipping for the IOS version.

Amazon has a refurbished iPad Air 2 for $159 with a 90 day warranty. New iPad Air starts at $499. If its just for the Bluefire I would try the used one.

I think it takes average computer skills to program the display. The RAM mount goes together in a minute.

So I’m new to this BlueFire for Motorhomes adapter. In any event I have several questions that maybe someone more knowledge could help. I’m unable to remove a gauge. There’s no choice for “none” in the select wheel. BTW I’m using an iPad/iOS. Also I am not seeing very many choices on the circular gauges. There are many more choices on the text gauges. The last item is I am not picking up any data on the primary and secondary air pressure, however I know that it exists on the bus because I’m able to show it on my scan gauge d. I am not running both devices together as I unplug one and plug the other in separately.

Bluefire ver: 3.9.2

I have finally exhausted the options:
Latest issue:
No longer sending Email under the Trip Function or the Logging function.
Does Email function work ? Yes, under sending Faults when first open.

Before you get into the obvious answers. Please don't, as I have tried them all. Both under the BlueFire Setting and the Android Setting.
I have also see Error under the Save Custom Dash Feature.


Using Samsung Galaxy Tab A, Android 7.1.1
Yes it works on my Win 10 Lenovo Tab. As long as long as my USB 3.0 is not plugged in to Computer.

If you have suggestion, please do. This is only a toy for me, as I do not use it to Drive. I have a good display and enough Electronics on the Dash to keep both drivers busy.

thank dale

I don't know if it will address any of your issues, but Ver 10 should be released sometime in the next week or so.

Will this show MPG and the actual amount of fuel in the tanks?

Will the data be available after the motorhome is turned off?

I think I have just about had it.
As I posted earlier, concerning the Email Function no working. In earlier version it did.

I just uncovered another (to me ) big issue.
Trip Function, I used this for refueling only. Once I enable Start Trip, I do not End Trip until I refuel.

When you stop for the day, (not pressing stop), but closing the App, all the trip data for that day since refueling disappears. I would have thought the data would have been stored in Non-volatile memory or on the memory card. But no.

It will Continue the trip, but, everything is reset to zero except for the Fuel Gallons.
