More About iDash Digital Monitor

Meet the Banks iDash
SuperGauge and DataMonster

Vehicle Monitoring like no other! — Banks iDash SuperGauge and DataMonster open a portal into the vital inner workings of your vehicle, letting you see what’s beyond the dashboard. This instrument monitors, displays, and (with a DataMonster) data logs multiple vehicle parameters such as speed, EGT, AFR, RPM, and engine temp. In addition, the iDash calculates Banks proprietary and/or patented information such as manifold air density, intercooler effectiveness and more. Plus it logs performance, can set custom alerts. The iDash can also be used in pre-OBD-II vehicles by utilizing Banks expansion modules.

Available in two versions

The iDash SuperGauge lets you view and control your vehicles ECM information. It provides a window into every measurable facet of your ECM and engine performance, as well as the controls you need to get the most out of your Banks Tuners, Expansion Modules and Accessories, or PedalMonster. The MicroSD card slot is used as a means for firmware updates

The iDash DataMonster is the data logging version. It provides all the same functionality as the standard SuperGauge, but gives the option to record and save data in real time to an microSD card. You can have up to 4 iDash units daisy-chained together on a Banks-Bus network, but only one needs to be a DataMonster to achieve data logging, saving money for those who want to run multiple gauges. Data logging will be done on your primary iDash, regardless if it is a DataMonster or not.

 

Information... lots of information!

When it comes to your vehicle, information is key. If you don't know what is going on under the hood, how can you know that it's running optimally? The Banks iDash allows you to see information that your dashboard wont share. Whether your towing and want to keep an eye on your Exhaust Gas Temperature, or driving around town monitoring your Engine Load, the Banks iDash will tell you what your dashboard will not.

Pick what you want to see, where you want to see it and how it’s displayed. Populate the screen with English or Metric units and choose from 100's of pre-loaded gauges.

Here are some examples of what you can expect to see (varies by vehicle):
This is just a sample of what the iDash can read, and we're working on adding more every day!
 

Data-Log and view up to 100 parameters!

The Banks iDash DataMonster offers data-logging capability. With a single iDash DataMonster you can display up to eight parameters at a time — but with more iDash gauges, you can keep your eye on even more. By connecting up to four iDash SuperGauges or DataMonsters, you increase the total monitoring and control. With this configuration you can see up to 32 gauge readings at the same time to monitor much more of what is going on under the hood. Crazy right! If you’re into big data, this is the SuperGauge for you! Remember, you only need a single DataMonster version of the iDash for data logging, your remaining gauges should only be standard SuperGauges.

Accurate Data

OBD-II (On-Board Diagnostics port)  Information is key, and you want it direct from the source. The Banks iDash pulls data straight from your OBD-II connector. That is the port where your vehicle's ECM (or brain) shares all of it's secrets and the iDash is more than happy to relate that information to you.

*Available parameters will vary based on what ECM you have and what sensors are configured in your ECM
