VMSpc Engine Monitoring for PC.

New Green 500K connector and Setup

Received the new 9 pin twist lock plug and had a problem installing it - got check engine warning and trans comm fail - no J1939 Data. Called and talked to Mark and he requested I send the unit back to SilverLeaf for an update. My question is - when I get it back, what version of VMSpc will best work with the new setup? Currently using 2.5 but that was with my old coach with a CAT 350 made in 2007. This new 2017 Newmar Dutch Star has given me some surprises with SilverLeaf. One other thing, I use Pressure Pro Bridge in the setup. Thanks in advance, Tom

Latest ideas for v4.0.6

Here's the latest idea for the new build; what do you think? 21. Alarms 1. Single-button "Alert" (audible alarm) feature in gauge properties. GUI "Sound Effects" pop-up then selects file or _records_from_local_mic_. Is there a way to show time-length of selected file? How long is Ride of the Valkyries anyway? Normally, one hits (Advanced), (Audible Alarms) to get a 'Sound Effects' box. Select your gauge, Give it a value (like, over 15 etc) then pick a file and (OK). Mostly overlooked yet easy enough to accomplish. Not a big deal--but why bury it in advanced features? Its a normal expectation to have an Alert any more. Alerts for texts, alerts for email, alerts for tweets, low battery, charged, dropped signal... This will accomplish two simplifying goals, really: 1. Group & Reduce clicks: Gauge (Properties), (Alert) _and_ 2. Add Record-Your-Own -in the event you (or the sweetie) have a really great radio voice! Your thoughts? -Art //

Various Gauges Momentarily go to Zero

For quite some time (well over a year) I have had this problem that various gauges will go to zero for 10-15 seconds then return to normal. I have not been able to determine a pattern or commonality with the occurrence. But, in the course of an hour I will see it several times in several different gauges! I first noted it in our previous RV, but when we changed RV's summer of last year the problem followed us to the newer one. Both had Cummins engines, the previous one was a 2009, current one is a 2013 model! In the last several months for unrelated reasons I got a new laptop for the job and I installed newer VMS programs v3. Nothing has made a difference. Anybody else having a similar problem? If so any suggestions on how to fix! Bob

Can't locate my engine

I'm converting a school bus into a motorhome. It's an 1999 International AmTran diesel. It has the diagnostic port under the dash to connect the VMSpc hardware to. I looked at the VMSpc user manual and the additional engine codes but could not find my International DT466E engine listed. What other engine is my engine similar to that I can choose so that VMSpc will interpret the codes correctly? Thanks.

Check engine light blinked a few times twice but nothing reported and nothing in the diagnostic file

Cat 3126E Allison 6 speed in a 2003 Fleetwood Discovery. Yesterday, while rolling hills in NY, my check engine light came on and went into a 10 second blink for 30 seconds. Did this twice. All readings on my monitor were good. Checked the diagnostics file and there was nothing in it. I'm new to VMSpc and diesels for that matter. Is there a reason that the light would come on and VMSpc not capture a code? Is there a way to use VMSpc to get the code from the ECU? Is there another way to get a code from the ECU? Thanks
