Again, bike technology, but this fellow explains a bit about motorbike "learning" tech:

I was able to calculate which gear the car was in based on the ratio of speedometer to tachometer pulses, as part of a now back-burner boost controller project. See demo video below. I had the benefit of knowing the gearing in advance, but you'd only need to run through the gears a few times for the processor to "learn" the gears. If you need help adapting any of the gauge sensors (fuel, etc.), I'm sure we could make an adapter box or two. I'm looking forward to seeing your "lean angle"

Tom, Thanks for your video... it's inspiring!
I like the LED lights also. You are obviously a smart and skilled fella.
I will definitely keep you in mind as a resource if the gauge isn't compatible. Many thanks!!

Gee, lol @ Motec 820USD for 250mb storage And then people recommend going Motec for a hot street car when someone asks which ECU to use. Usually in USA when people mean standalone most mean Motec (as in it is a synonym for standalone :P ).

Nowadays there are so many nice options for dashes like RealDash etc that work on Android and one can buy a 7" tablet and use that as a dash, everything is freely configurable etc.
