    Further messing about with my RangerEV, I now have a box converting OBD2 signals to USB and then providing wireless web interface, and a scan converted display showing things like SOC, voltage, etc.

    Note the bottom display here:

    (Top to bottom - GPS/NAV, backup-camera(view1),DVD/Bluetooth/MP3/backup-cam2,OBD2 diagnostics monitor screen.)

    New boxes behind the passenger seat:

    Wireless web access (still under development):

    Not a Tesla, but something to play with...

    TEG, I think you've passed the threshold at which your Ranger can be safely operated with only a single pilot. From now on, you should have a co-pilot in the cockpit with you at all times.

    It's like TEG has made his own steampunk Model S display

    What you fail to understand is that long ago TEGs Ranger was modified to the point that it is now a sentient being. TEG, himself, is the co-pilot.
