new dash daq firmware

just got the new firmware up and runnin. it's pretty sweet. it is now an icon based system and there is also a new software suit that allows you to edit the theme of the dash daq. as far as i know you cannot creat your own from scratch but you can mix and match and redo all the existing stuff. it's pretty cool. if you dont have it, get it before the holidays or you'll have to buy it on e-bay for a 300% mark up.

Where do we get it? Will that make it read my EGTs in *F? I hate reading it in Celcius.

i think they got the temp thing fixed a while ago. short of it is yes. you need to delete your update tool, download the new one from dash daq's site and then do the check web for updates. when you are loading the new update it will ask for features you want and give you a big list, you have to select the ford specific one or your gauges will not work. i just hit the select all button. it will totally change the look of the thing. they changed the website and it will look like the new website. good luck.

I updated the dashdaq and everything looks new, but it is still in *C. Can someone help me out here? What am i doing wrong? I just want to read my EGTs in Fahrenheit.

Rudy, just go to our support forums and download our CONFIG file. Install it per the instructions.

You are actually wanting to monitor "Exhaust Gas Recirculation Temp A", or EGRTA. The EGT/Cat temp sensors are what you are reading now. EGRTA is a true, preturbo *F reading.

I did all of that and it is still in Celcius. Downloaded the new config, put it to the memory card, installed it from the memory card, and it is still in *C.

what version of the firmware are you running? Did you install the Ford specific sensors?

If you haven't, you need to upgrade to the 2.0 firmware.

The temperature issue has been fixed for a couple months...
