Google "garmin mechanic" to see how you can display various engine info on your android phone or garmin gps in real time. Some of the info displayable on your phone includes intake manifold pressure, coolant temperature, oil temperature, oil pressure, air/fuel mixture, timing advance, throttle position; measures 0–30, 0–60, 1/8-mile and 1/4-mile times; calculates your vehicle's horsepower and torque; measures lateral acceleration; records live OBD data and you can export it for analysis and a bunch of other stuff. I don't think the gps has as much, but it sure is easy to read and is a way cleaner install than an A pillar pod. You can customize the info displayed, for example:

With a Bavarian Technic cable you can display even more info on a Windows tablet or netbook.

EDIT: According the Garmin website this thing doesn't work on a 2007 328i. But the BT should work.

I have BMW 328i 2007 (e90).
1) I made a triple Gauge A pillar pod and want to install water temperature, oil temperature and volts gauge. I've called installer and he told me it's not problem to to have a volts gauge but wouldn't be possible for this model to install water and oil temperature gauges.
Is it true?

2) Does anyone have installed BMW Performance Steering wheel Electric V2 in BMW 328i 2007? Is that suppose to work with this model?

3) Does anyone know a good and professional BMW Performance installer
Master or company in New York?.
