After reading all 17 pages, I do not recall seeing Retarder Temp.  It is supposed to capture all engine data but appears to not include:  HP, Torque and a few others that I look at often.

Would be interesting to get Roger's take on this????

HP & torque are not engine data bus items, they're calculated by VMSPC using a combination of data values like RPM and engine specific power curves.  The VMSPC numbers are estimations of HP & torque.  If BlueFire can't do that, maybe they can add...

I am here.  I have not looked at this.  The J1939 and J1708 data busses are standard.  There are lots of devices that can read and interpret this data.   Beyond that what gets done with the data, how it gets displayed, what the user interface...

Non-starter in my mind considering that silver-leaf gives away the data reading software. And we have one of our own (Roger) that does all the programing for us and whom we should support. I believe that part of that VMSPC purchase is donated to...

I am just interested the the differences between the Silverleaf product and this other brand, and see if others had seen/used it.

Thanks for this thread. I wasn't aware of BlueFire.

Just read all 17 pages of the" VMSpc Replacement Thread" on IRV2.

I'll be ordering it as soon as I'm in one place long enough to get delivery.

If you do not have the most current release of Windows 10 this will not run.  Not on XP.  Not on Windows 7.  Not on any Windows 10 PC that is not at the current release.  you can't even download it.

The early complainer on iRV2 says he is using a...

As I get older I realize I am old school and as long as my VMSPC works on my ACER notebook running on Windows 7, I see no need to replace it.

My Dad always said, " if it isn't broken don't fix it."  Now I understand.................... ;)

    I downloaded the free software and played around with it in demo mode.
    Made up a dash fairly quickly but don't know if I will give up the VMSpc yet
    One advantage is that it will run on Android, iOS and Windows 10 devices according to...

I did see on the IRV2 topic that one guy had a Dash he made with "AIR" psi for his ride height.. wondering how we can get that to read? Is it possible?.. That would kinda complete the VMSpc I think

I have no issues with my VMSpc and I really like...

The next release of VMSpc will have "radial" gauges as they call them.  I have a pre-release copy and have adjusted screens to use some of them.  For me they take up a lot of space for each gauge which results in less total information.

My...

Just read the IRV site info and see no need to change from my VMSP as I get all the info from it I need and am used to how it looks etc. I am using the very early edition of it  and have no problems on my dedicated Toshiba netbook. I also do not...

I sat in a live f18 cockpit long ago. All the analog round gauges had red needles that if everything was ok all the needles pointed straight up.  Adverted vision showed them without looking down.

Translating the digits takes a split second extra.
