I haven't found a way to tune in it yet. I use my laptop to tune. and the pi with the Linux version for my dash display. Guess I'm missing something.

I've been corrected, you can tune with the pi. I'll have to contact tuner studio tomorrow to fine out why I can't.

I had the TS in dash only mode..... Duh.

Thinking of getting one of these UDOO Bolt SBC. not for the dash project. OVER KILL for a in dash setup but running 4 UHD 4K displays is possible.

Very cool. size is 4.7 inch x 4.7 inch blazing fast for a Single Board Computer.

I just built a new Megasquirt dash with a ASUS Tinker board.

Used Debian OS from the ASUS tinker board downloads
I had to install java JRE. But thatís the only thing I did differently than the pi.
On the pi it just ran. Didnít have to install java.

The ASUS tinker board has a faster processor and better graphics capeable of running 4K.

It fits in the same exact cases as the raspberry pi.
I got the Tinker Board not the Tinker board S. They are different.

YES you should use.a fan on the processor for sure. It runs hot.

Specs and all.

Very interesting IW!  I had never heard of the Tinkerboard. It's hard to keep up these days.  Some pics would be great. What display are you using?

Thanks ,  Brad

I have yet to do much with it. But been testing the waters.
I am going with basically the same as in my first post setup wise.
In the videos I posted. Video one. He shows it all in there.
