  1. When you connect, make sure to click the checkbox "Find more ECUs" (screenshot below), it will take longer to connect (almost 5mins) but will find every reading hidden by the manufacturer 😁
  2. hi @Niki Patel good to see fellow OBD-enthusiasts 👋🏻 I use Motordata OBD (screenshot below), cos it has an option to do "Extensive Search" while connecting, and the log shows it tries to connect to every possible controller from Climate Control to ABS. The most popular one is Torque but I find it lacking and for a phone the Dial Gauges are too small too see, maybe they are better suited for RAM-mounted Tablets or Android radios 😁. If you use iPhone I believe your OBD Dongle is WiFi instead of Bluetooth?
  3. My LandCruiser has a Pentium4 processor in its ECU, as such just like we monitor everything that's automated by computers, I want to collect what sort of parameters are good both for onroad & offroad driving. I'll start with below, mainly for offroading: 1. Vehicle Speed: seems redundant cos we have speedometer, but mine is in Miles per Hour, so having KM/h is important to avoid speed cameras 😂 Additionally any minute drop in speed means i'm losing power for momentum. 2. Gear Actual: unfortunately my OBD dongle doesn't connect to the transmission ECU so I can't get
  4. Gaia Track based on the trip, for those who want to repeat it again 😁 >> https://www.gaiagps.com/public/SuCAtpndeXdYeTAShzkicOul
  5. Great lead by Dr @Chaitanya D, all those weekend drives for the past year really shaped your experience & leadership 👍🏻 Paired with awesome assist by @Craig Finlayson, we were definitely in safe hands today 💪🏻 Everyone did well in self-recovery too, I greatly enjoyed today's drive 😊
  6. cc @Warren Flay token to remember for the Gajero 😊
  7. The previous drive to Bu Tais I left home 4am thinking I have ample time to reach by 6am. Then halfway through around 5am, fog settles in and I have to drive below 80km/h to prevent fines (speed cameras automatically adjust to 80 if fog is detected). I reached around 6:15-6:20am but was surprised people were there before me with tyres deflated. Moral of the story: I should have left at 3am, don't assume no fog 😅 Even if we arrive too early, we can make use of the time to sleep and the Marshall will knock your window to wake you up when it's time 😄
  8. hi @Warren Flay kindly refer to ADMediaOffice screenshot on this page >> https://www.instagram.com/p/CKqh0YBBBh8/?igshid=ce2jn0ytcmqk The footnote says u don't need test to enter Abu Dhabi, but the E icon is green with outer yellow. Not sure if this is the same icon you have on your Al Hosn.
  9. @Lakshmi Narasimhan you don't need to wait for second dose, you can do DPI (blood test) in exit after LegoLand. The trick is you have to alternate DPI-then-PCR for your second trip to Abu Dhabi. You can't do DPI-then-DPI again.
