Im trying to make a dashboard for my truck using a VIM3. I belive with this unit already running Android, the app I use (tourqe pro) should run just fine. I plan on using an OBD2 to USB adapter that i have already used with an OTG cable to my tablet. I will only need a touch pad for the set up after that i wont need to interface with it on a regular bases. I will be using a HDMI monitior with USB power. I have seen some “one launchers” that will start your device into an app of your choice upon start up ( will this work?) The app i want to use will start in dashboard mode if selected in the settings.
I have a few concerns im hoping you guys can answer:
- Boot time.
- wake up with an external button
- can i leave the VIM3 powered all the time and just have switched power to the screen?
Thank you for taking the time to read this and responding (if you have done so)
