DASH2 PRO - Frequently asked questions
What is the difference between the standard DASH2 and this DASH2 PRO?
The main difference is that the DASH2 PRO offers powerful live data processing and a range of enhancement options, enabling you to have a more complete system in just one compact component. For example: you can add CAN reception to take sensor data directly from your vehicle's CAN bus or ECU, and add an extra 4 analogue inputs for sensors - all without adding another component into the system. Reducing the number of components in the system reduces clutter and improves reliability by reducing the number of connections.
The powerful processor in the DASH2 PRO also allows for the "Advanced Options Bundle" featuring car computer functions, advanced alarms, advanced shiftlight functions and much more. These functions are available as an optional extra.
Visually there are differences like the bi-colour shiftlights (which can be configured to work in multiple ways with the Advanced Options Bundle) and higher density connectors. There are also some very subtle differences to the all new LCD display, with some extra segments and lap/sector timing functions now being possible on the large segment area at the bottom of the LCD. The backlight brightness and the display contrast can also be adjusted to your preference, for both day and night time modes.
Can the DASH2 PRO be used standalone?
Yes, the DASH2 PRO is a provided with direct inputs for sensors such as wheel speed, engine speed and analogue sensors; to be used as a complete standalone system.
