Default NAV Display of ECU Data

NOTE:
You can select more than one option in the poll. If you vote, please choose one box from the "I would use..." list and one from the "This would..." list. Basically the poll is to assess how often you feel you would use the feature as well as if you feel it would increase the value of the NAV option.

Thread Description:

Having the OEM NAV unit display useful information like boost, AFR, IAM, etc, would be much more useful to 2008+ STI owners than simply seeing Avg MPG (already availabe by clock), instant MPG (who cares), and throttle position % (who cares). If we assume that this data is being collected from the ECU, then it should be a relatively simple matter for Subaru to provide an update to enable the display useful data.

While it is unlikely this post will cause Subaru to release an update to enable this for 2008 owners, it might serve to show interest for having it as a 2009 feature.

Posting Rules:

For those that would like to see this feature, please post here. Please only post if you would like to see this feature. Also, if you could indicate whether you are a current owner or potential buyer (08 or 09+) that would be helpful too.

This is not a discussion thread.

Default Re: Petition: NAV Display of ECU Data

I'll start. Yes as a soon-to-be owner of a 2008 STI, I would like to see this feature delivered as an update, if possible. At the very least this should be a feature for MY09.

I didnt order my 08 with navi but if it did have these options, I'd probably would of got it. I think a ODB II code reader would be helpful to. :/

Current owner. If USEFUL data were displayed by the Nav, I would have purchased this option. As it stands, however, I did not opt for the Navi since I already have a handheld unit and $2K is WAY to much to spend for a Navi.

Current owner w/Nav. I would like to see this as an update, and I believe it would add to the appeal!

Also current owner... definitely interested in a factory update.

if not, would it be possible for the factory to release the code under GPL and allow those with the time and the resources to cobble something together?

current owner, no NAV.

i would still not get the nav if it was able to do this. i already have a gtech-pro, a scangauge II and an Accessport v2 to read everything that i need to see. and i have GPS built into my blackberry. just can't justify spending $2K on another set of gauges and nav.

i voted "This would *not* increase the appeal of the NAV option"
