Default PL enhancement request

Current list of enhancement requests:

Current List: Trying to collect all of the requests.

1 make the PL connect automatically ------------DONE

2 remember the last screen it was on ----------DONE

4. configurable gauges (adding air temp)

5. size of window + datapage fonts - Improved

6. TPS triggering -Checked, seems to work

7. Edit/trim a recorded run to cut out the junk before and after the pertinent data. -- Added "snapshot" to graph page 1.3.24

8. Add BLM to graphs --------DONE

9. Add BLM to gauge ------- DONE

10. Add Int to graphs and LV8 gauge --------- DONE

11. TurboTweak correction % on gauges and graphs ----DONE


15. Fully automate the port setting process.

18. Configurable analog inputs (fixed scaling). --DONE 1.3.22

19. Additional analog channels displayed on Scanmaster

20. Transmission inputs visible on other screens.

21. Add new AEM Inline wideband unit

24. have a hotkey to switch between 2 (several) sets of selected graphs on the graph screen

25. larger legends on the graph screen

26. Configurable max boost on graph - Done 1.3.30

27. More selections for the EGT input.

-----------more for Norbs.
11. Add some color choices, gauges, etc.
12. Make the vertical tabs a little bit bigger and with bold font's and make ALL font's bold on the Graph screen, including the numbers on the graphs.
13. Have the option to select IAT, or V(4), or V(5) on the factory 02 mv gauge. Wideband users may not find this gauge too useful anymore once you have a wideband connected.
14. ECM status flags visible on all screens (priority to Closed loop, PE, and TCC)

16. Make the all the gauge borders with colors similar to the rpm gauge as they approach redline.
17. Allow % 02 correction to be displayed on the power logger from the Gen II translator.
22. ability to show MAF hz
23. lean cruise status flag



10/29/09 added 8 and 9 posted version 1.3.9
10/31/09 item 9 done posted version 1.3.10
10/31/09 item 10 done, increase some fonts on data page, version 1.3.11 posted

11/11/09 added 1.3.19 as the result of some bug-chasing. added correction factor graph and gauge for TurboTweak stuff. Limited to 18 fps
11/14/09 added a couple more to the Norbs list (I'm going to wait a little bit for the next update, so we can gather some feedback on 1.3.19)
11/16/09 replaced 1.3.19 with 1.3.20 - fixed the quicksave issue. If the user does not select a filename, the default is used and placed in the same folder as PLC.
11/24/09 added # 17
12/13/09 added #18 and posted 1.3.21 which should be good. The parameters for the new additions to analog 4 and 5 are in the INI file, and can be tweaked to your liking.
4/25/10 posted 1.3.23 you can now open log (.DAT) files by dragging them into PLC (you can't be monitoring at the time though)
4/27/10 posted 1.3.24 (replaced 1.3.23) save snapshot button on the graph page, saves a short logfile containing only the current view.
5/17/10 posted 1.3.25 with PL025 reflash file. this adds the AEM InLine wideband and fixes a BLM display bug.
7/16/10 posted 1.3.28 fixed some bugs with the spacebar. add some transmssion status indicators to the graph and gauge page , add new EGT amp.
9/5/10 posted 1.3.30 in place of 28, new serial communication library, added boost graph min and max in the ini file, added clear codes button (requires a patch in the chip and PL028 in the powerlogger)
9/18/10 replaced .30 with .32 fixed Win98 issue, added option to change O2 gauge to read IAT (option is in the INI file)

Bump to the top. Is this do-able Bob? Went racing last night and would love to see a large 02 or knock gauge rather than RPM/MPH. Thoughts?

Can't wait to get it.

making this thread a sticky.

Not sure when the next update will come out. Got a few other things to finish up first.

Keep the suggestions coming.

if its going to start with stuff like moving the gauges around, and skinning the program, then perhaps not.....

The software is set up to be simple. It is what it is.

Stuff like user scalable pressure sensors, better routine for setting the analog offsets, and other ease-of-use suggestions are what I am looking for.

Default ease of use enhancements

I'll start with easy of use:

1. Is it possible to make the PL connect automatically and not press monitor mode each time you boot it up with the key on?

2. Can it be made to remember the last screen it was on. so i don't have to press f4 each time it boots up.

3. Once you turn the key off the usb drops out and i have to exit the program and then get back into it. I am programing the chip with the key on and off and its a bit of a pain.

This is just the 1st day i started using it........what I've come up with, I;ll think of a few more in time.
