New from AEM – their DashDesign Software now supports GM E67 LS Crate engines. This software communicates with the ECU while leaving the OBDII port open. See more details below.
AEM’s new DashDesign Software (Version 1.04.05) is available now. It includes factory OBDII CAN bus support for GM LS Crate engines, app-specific layouts for Hondata and Haltech, several new layouts to choose from in the layout library and full support for the impending release of the CD-5 Carbon Digital Dash!
COMMUNICATES WITH GM LS CRATE ECUS
AEM CD dashes have been in-house validated to communicate with GM E67 LS Crate engines. The CD dashes receive OBDII CAN bus channels from the bulkhead connector in the stock wiring harness, leaving the OBDII port open for diagnostic or tuning purposes.
NEW LAYOUTS FOR 3RD PARTY DEVICES
We are excited to release pre-defined templates in DashDesign for Haltech Elite, Platinum Pro and Platinum Sport ECUs, and Hondata S300 V3. If you have one of these ECUs, you will find a layout template in the DashDesign library specific to these manufacturer’s products. You will be able to select this layout template, and when you connect the ECU to a CD Dash the channel values will automatically populate in the layouts. Typically, each template includes four different main screen layouts that you can toggle between using the left button on the face of the dash.
AEM will continue adding new templates and preconfigured layouts for popular 3rd party devices to the DashDesign software, which will always be available for free. Whenever new layouts are added they will be available in the latest version of DashDesign.
NEW LAYOUT DESIGNS
New color choices have been added to our popular analog style five-gauge layout, including orange, red, green, and purple. New layouts include a digital layout with a red hex background, green hex background and white/blue background, a 3-gauge open layout design with a dark blue and purple background, and a classic three-gauge layout with blue night glow gauge colors and a carbon fiber weave background. As we create new layouts in house, we will continue adding them to the DashDesign library.
AEM engineers performed other minor improvements and bug fixes to ensure DashDesign is easier than ever to use.
