If my old man had a 2nd gen: as of right now he would never get an adrenaline because of not having gauges or buttons to turn power up and down...

try to get him to use his phone for that and I can almost guarantee that his phone will get thrown out the window in a matter of minutes. He has very little patience for computers and just sending an email via smart phone is difficult for him (his in his mid 60s) so you can imagine having to load an app and get it to connect and what not would be rocket science to him and irritate him to no end. Younger generations like ME will never understand this and say oh nobody needs a monitor the phone can do everything. it's kinda like saying: "What do you need a GUI for? Command line works just fine! Does everything and then some!"

I think the option should be there for those that don't want to use a tablet or phone, and want a device that is ALWAYS connected and powers on/off with the truck.

Should also note: if the new monitor doesn't support all new and existing features of the quadzilla and continue to be supported for years to come. don't want it. Still with my ancient pv1. But if it does support ALL new features of the quad + gets continued support for at least 5+ years then I will strongly consider it and be it's biggest cheer leader if I like it.

The phone has it's perks don't get me wrong, but it's definitely not for everyone and it takes too many steps to get gauges up and running every single time you get ready to take a drive. I still use my monitor for corrected vehicle speed and for EGT and trans temp.




as for @Mopar1973Man comment. I'm sure Jacob could come up with a pillar that can mount the monitor + 2 gauge pods.

mine is custom slapped together looks like crap but works...

but I have seen other members do similar but they fiberglassed it together sanded and painted it and it looks like it came like that from the factory...absolutely beautiful work.

Also a big deal for me. Yes the phone works and i could get another device to leave in the truck but a screen that comes on with the truck would be great.

It's not a GUI vs command line thing, it's very simply put a usb keyboard vs a wireless keyboard. Sure if you turn off the wireless keyboard after using it and put it in the closest you have to take it back out and turn it back on to use it again, But no one does that. That's the mindset that is killing me, it's not logical. What I don't understand is why people are so unwilling to change their perception of something. Your next statement is proof of that.

You don't need to load anything, or connect to anything, just leave the device on your dash just like you do your pv1. It automatically connects without any user intervention. Just treat it like it is a dedicated screen. I get in my truck, key on , wts , crank, and by the time I put my truck in gear the Iquad is connected and all of my gauges are there up and running. Didn't have to lift a finger, didn't have to load an app, exactly 0 steps needed.....

You saying you have to jump through those hoops to get your iquad running is like me saying you have to plug your pv1 into the adr box everytime you start your truck. Yes you would have to if you took the pv1 out of the truck everytime you got out of the truck, but you don't you leave it on the dash. Same as me, I don't remove my dedicated device from the truck, it stays in the truck.

If nothing else at very least compare them in the same situtation and conditions rather than treating the Iquad one way and pv1 in another way. No one should use their personal phone as the gauges, as a backup? sure that's a great idea, as their main screen, no that's not a good idea. Use a dedicated device just like your pv1. Treat the Iquad the same way as a standalone screen.




the single biggest perk of the app is the fact that it does not fall victim to aging hardware syndrome. Need a new feature? great update the app. 5+ years out of full hardware support is beyond costly and nearly impossible to do. Just ask Edge why they keep putting out new screens.

So for literally %10 - %20 of the cost of the standalone screen Quad is talking about you could get what you want right now, but you are unwilling to for what reason?

do you at least see my confusion with this mindset?

How so? As far as Ive seen, even if you leave a phone in the truck you still have to unlock it and open the app to use it. Then charge it when it goes dead unless I leave a charger strung cross the cab. I could be wrong though. Are the android phones capable of coming on with the truck? I just think a monitor that plugged into the obd2 port and read/cleared codes like the edge would be better. That being said i am happy with the product just trying to give some feedback witch is why quad posted this thread.

Leave the phone plugged in USB cord tucked away. Again having it plugged in is no different that having a screen plugged in. You can tuck away the USB in the same way. Leave the app running, it will automatically connect and be up and running 24/7. Been doing this for years and don't have issues with it.

The phone will stay on as long as the app is up and it has power.

I get the want I do, I just want to make sure that the want is for things that the iquad can't do.

Even for what I've got. I've got a homemade cradle in my ashtray for my LG G4 phone. So I unplug the phone shove it in my pocket the phone goes with me. Return to the truck plug in the charge cord and audio cord then start the app. By the time I drive out of the parking lot the Quad is hooked up and displaying.

Now, on the other hand, my OBDLink App requires me to press RECONNECT every single time I restart the engine which I'm trying to get them to create a auto-connect like Quadzilla already does.

That video proves my point of the part you don't understand. If someone left a phone all lit up in their truck like that parked in ANY major city in the USA I can almost guarantee you that your window WILL be smashed and that thing stolen because it is lit up and drawing attention to itself. My pulse monitor draws 0 attention because it is not lit up and it's quite obviously not a smart device so I have never had a problem with a broken window when parking in bad neighborhoods.

That screen lit up like that all night...truck window would definitely get busted out...

So that brings us back to have to manually power up phone, wait for it to boot up, then have to unlock screen, have to start up app, wait for it to connect, plug in to my 12v DC outlet and lose that outlet forever to a monitor that was originally powered from under the hood or go through having to plug it in and unplug when charged and plug back in. Point is extra steps we didn't have before with a monitor that was powered from under the hood and came on with the truck and turned off with the truck.

been in the city for 3-4 years with that, I have even had people break into the car right in front of my truck...mutiple times. Phones still there. so ,

that is a incorrect blanket statement.


And guess what, if they do steal the phone google knows where it is at when you turn it on.


I get what you are saying I really do, but you need to see that you are not forced to start it everytime. That is your choice. Just because you think one thing or another doesn't mean it is true.

Are we forgetting the cost of the bluetooth module?

That's $215 for that, that's over 50% of the monitor right there, then another couple hundred for a phone or generic android device...there's the rest of the cost of the monitor...
