DashCommand App Now Available for Pioneer AppRadio

Palmer Performance Engineering, the creator of DashCommand, a leading smartphone app allowing automotive enthusiasts in-vehicle performance, diagnostics, and fuel economy data access, announces a new partnership with Pioneer’s AppRadio. The newest version of DashCommand (Version 2.9) for the iPhone® 4 offers compatibility with Pioneer’s AppRadio head unit, giving DashCommand’s customizable gauges the ability to display on AppRadio’s in-dash high-resolution 6.1-inch capacitive touchscreen for the ultimate virtual dashboard. Pioneer’s AppRadio is the first in-vehicle product designed to utilize the processing power, storage capacity, network connectivity and apps of the iPhone and iPod touch® (4th generation) as the primary source for its information and entertainment capabilities.

Winner of seven Global Media Awards at the 2011 SEMA Show, the DashCommand app allows access to almost anything a performance enthusiast might want to know about his or her vehicle in real time. Advanced engine parameters, performance data, fuel economy data, and trip statistics can all be viewed on up to 27 customizable gauges--until now only on your smartphone (iPhone or AndroidÔ), iPad®, or iPod touch’s screen. DashCommand even includes specialized features such as racetrack mapping, an inclinometer (for off-roading), and a skid pad feature for monitoring g-forces, all through the smartphone’s GPS and accelerometer sensors. Vehicle data is pulled directly from the vehicle’s OBD-II port through a low-cost OBD-II connection device (available separately). With up to 229 OBD-II parameters at their fingertips, users can also operate DashCommand as a scan tool to read and clear OBD-II trouble codes that trigger the “check engine” light. All this information can now be visible on Pioneer’s in-dash AppRadio screen by simply connecting the AppRadio to an iPhone 4 that has been loaded with the newest version of DashCommand.

“Being able to access our DashCommand app through Pioneer’s AppRadio is a perfect marriage of products,” comments Brian Palmer of Palmer Performance Engineering. “It allows our users the seamless integration of our technology right onto the dash of their vehicles and opens a whole new world of performance data and vehicle diagnostics to AppRadio owners.”

“The ability to seamlessly add new and diverse apps makes the Pioneer AppRadio unlike any other aftermarket car radio available today,” states Ted Cardenas, Director of Marketing for Pioneer’s Car Electronics Division. “Consumers expect their car radio to play their favorite music, but through the combination of the iPhone, the Pioneer AppRadio, and the DashCommand app, a wealth of vehicle related information now is accessible right in the dash of practically any car."
