Vision at Hand- Superchip’s iHawk Phone-Based Monitoring and Gauge System

Monday, March 11th, 2013

Years ago, when NASA had its eye on the moon, computers were used to crunch the numbers and keep watch on the missions. These computers were so large they filled entire buildings and teams of scientists were deployed just to program them to play solitaire. Nowadays, even the most basic smartphones have more computing power than the giants from the ‘60s. The same can be said for modern vehicles relying more and more on computers to not only control the engine, braking and other functions, but to read every aspect of how your vehicle is running, not just the basic gauges. All of this can be accessed and now, thanks to the folks at Superchips, it’s all available on your phone!

The new iHawk from Superchips is an OBDII wireless Bluetooth Linq module that works in conjunction with your iOS device to act not only as a gauge monitoring system but as a portable dyno, code scanner, data logger, drag strip, notification center and more. Once you plug in the iHawk, download the free app and link it up, you can start selecting parameters to monitor by way of analog or digital gauge readouts. One of the best aspects of viewing from your phone is the easy manipulation of different gauges. You caneven swipe through various screens to showcase all of the important information you need.
