Thanks Clive , i'm really looking forward to the fitting , Torque Pro is fantastic and opened up a world of Possiblities.

 

This would also be a good fit for the Mk2 pod as it's slightly bigger

So Sal , when are you going to do your install?

 

Paul, my phone contract is due in July i think so am looking at getting a free samsung galaxy tab 2 from carphone warehouse! i wanted the nexus but thats in only available in brown!

 

i now have a dashboard pocket and have just purchased another pod trim so trying to give myelf a few options.

i want to use the whole tablet with the torque/satnav app so will see how things play out.

 

main issues are keeping the tab charged/connected - what are your plans for this?

Hi Sal

 

Charging , i have a mini USB adapter that plugs into a 12V aux , you can then set the Tab/Phone along with Torque Pro to Switch on with Power , works great everytime. I will hard wire this when i'm 100% happy with the pod.

 

I have today installed the Pod , looks fantastic for a first fit , although i'm not totally happy with it , the corner sits on the inner air vent pushing it up on the one side , this also kicked the screen angle back a bit and i get some windscreen glare on the screen , it would be fine at night time.

 

So i will sit and enjoy it for a while before i decide how i'm going to sort the angle , i may remove it from its case. i set up three four screens i can rotate through , not sure if heat will be a problem the damn radio generates alot of heat.

OMG!!
That is fantastic mate,
You should start making and selling these,
So much information in the pod blows fords stock gauge setup out of the water mate.
Top respect brother.
I'm very Gel.
2.5bar boost gauge and everything.
Speaking of pressiure, you have to fit the ST body kit now to finish it off ;)

Cheers Lenny , you can set the Min/Max for every gauge , change size , colour etc etc , torque Pro is an excellent App.

No to sure about fitting the body kit , i prefer the tech side to appearence side of Modding :) and if the body kits on the outside i can't see it while driving haha.

 

Foci can't you see the video ?

Thanks Sal , i still have not been for a night drive yet haha to see what it looks like.

 

If you get a 1.4 HDI , make sure you have a good listen to it , those damn injectors cost a fortune if they fail , also the Diesel pump soleniods are problematic , and a nightmare to get too.

Pree that is one slick looking set up. Nicely done and it looks the business. 

 

I totally agree with you about Torque Pro. It's a really good app and well worth the money. Another alternative would be to mount an android tablet and connect it to Torque Pro as Sal mentioned. I reckon that would be equally interesting.

looking slick mate! shame that Torque Pro cant cycle the pages, then you could have 5 gauges per window, and then scroll onto the next five... shame also that you cant easily access it to do the ECU error check, but hey, its a fantastic idea, and looks immense!
