Hi Mark,
I've just installed a customsimparts dual needle flaps gauge. You will recall that we installed the customsimparts brake pressure gauge successfully.

I'm having a slight glitch with the SYSboard controller v1.94 software in that the settings for the flaps gauge OUTPUTS are not been saved. The correct outputs based on my connections to the Pololu card are 3 and 4 (one for each needle) and I save these settings with the Save option on the main menu. The gauge works well.

However, on the next start-up, the outputs are changed (i.e. they were not saved). Does the SYSboard software need a patch or is there a way around this issue?

Many thanks,
Jim

Hi Jim,

Damn Mad - It appears I've copied the line from the Left needle to the Right needle and haven't changed all of the references from "_L" to "_R"

I've corrected them and they'll be in the 1.95 update.
- I'm starting to pull this version together now... lots of internal changes, so I need to test everything thoroughly.

Hi Mark,
Any news on the v.1.95 update to fix the Flaps/Pololu Card issue as described above?

Regards......

Hi Mark,
Thanks for Sim-Av 1.96.

Just a note that unfortunately it doesn't seem to have addressed the Pololu card problems I have always had with previous versions (SEE POST THREAD ABOVE)..............still doesn't allow the correct outputs to correspond to pin outputs on Pololu card.

In fact in 1.96, Pololu card is not recocgnised at all.

With 1.94, the brake pressure gauge worked but the flap gauge never worked. Now neither work.

Thanks,
Jim

This problem has been partly resolved.....

Re-installed Pololu drivers and detected flaps gauge. Problem is that calibrating dual needles very well is near impossible for some reason. There is no option to calibrate each needle separately and this may be hte problem......probably not????

So Calibration of needles is close to TQ flap settings but not very close........so I've called it a partial resolved.

I am guessing this is never going to work.......shouldn't the Sysboard Gauges Assignment have two sliders for twin needle flap gauges?? i.e. one calibration for each needle?? Not sure............I can't calibrate this gauge!
