Custom car dashboard

Question

Custom car dashboard I've been working on. Uses a 7" touchscreen and a raspberry PI 3b+. The software behind it is Node.JS + Electron and interfaces with a cars OBD2 port for diagnostic information but right now im using dummy data because haven't quite got it working great atm.

What you think of the UI, any suggestions?

It looks nice :) 

Can you zoom in on the map? I know the sat nav on my Dad's car allows you to change the zoom level on the map. Also how do you enter your destination into the map? Is that on the home page? Provided that you plan for GPS usage as well. 

Providing the diagnostics by default is great, I know my dad has had issues with his car that we couldn't work out what it was without the use of the OBD2 port. E.g. Car says one thing on the dashboard, but it's actually something pretty different because of how encompassing the warnings normally are.

The homepage uses the map as a background. Shows your general location. Have a specific tab for navigation. Haven't done that part yet as im going to buy a GPS hat for the PI.

Sort of modelling it off of the Tesla dashboard. only much smaller screen would be cool to have a desktop screen though as a dashboard. :)

yeah im ordering a bluetooth OBD2 adapter since i have bluetooth on my Rpi. The only thing im a little concerned about is the wiring of a few things so i can control music from steering wheel. Right now im simulating it. Guess im just going to have dive into it. 

i did add the ability to control music from the dashboard yesterday as a wee widget. just refreshed it a little.picar2.png

    • How many staff/adm do we have? If all are to busy maybe we need to find some people who do have time? I dont want to offend anyone but i am just curious if we can make this an active server again. (ofc i understand irl goes before the game ) 
    • As per this post. We reboot the servers once every 12 hours to ensure they are running as smoothly as possible. I apologise if this causes you any issues. We can review these times in the future, as it currently stands most of the staff have irl stuff going on so that's taking priority at the moment so I am not sure when we'll get round to taking a look at this. Your feedback has been noted
    • Is it possible to change the maintenance time from 1 in the afternoon to 4 in the morning? I play a lot at daytime and when i tame, sometimes i am 3 hours or more busy taming. Even with taming pots. (some dino's are going up with 0.2 with a taming pot).  Every time i have to run to a safe place and hope the dino wont get killed during the maintenance . Wich happend once after 2 hours being patience taming . I know on some other servers they have the maintenance time early in the morning. thx Heaven
