Note: this is an early access beta that may have bugs and UI polish issues. Please read to the end before installing.
** Coming soon: ELM327 bluetooth support. ELM327 is the standard for cheap $15 bluetooth adapters on Amazon. It will not have full support for all the ADAS (autopilot, blind spot) alerts but should have vehicle info, albeit at a lower rate. Good choice for people who want a cheaper option, albeit with reduced functionality.
Modern vehicles since the 1990s have one or more CANbus networks, which carry signals that contain vehicle information between various systems in the car. The CANdash uses a CANserver to convert these signals into a useful dashboard for your Tesla Model 3 or Model Y.
The Tesla Model 3 and Y have a single large display in the center of the car that contains all information needed to drive the car and operate controls. Unlike virtually all other cars, there is no display in front of the driver, and instead instrumentation is placed in the top corner of the screen on the driver’s side of the display.
CANdash has the following features:
Distance to empty
State of charge
Live Blind Spot monitoring
Emergency Blind Spot alerting when changing lanes into traffic
Front and rear motor temperature and torque
Live power display in HP or kW
Autopilot alerts for hands on wheel
Door/Aperture open alerting
Automatic night mode based on vehicle status
Manual night mode for those who prefer dark mode’
Supports Android 6.0.1 to 12
CANdash is also 100% compatible with Android split screen, so that you can run the CANdash along your favorite navigation app like Waze or Google Maps, or even a music or podcast app if you prefer.
To access this information, the CANdash uses a CANserver, which is a small hardware device that installs under the passenger seat and connects to vehicle wiring to capture and broadcast this data to a receiving device over wifi.
