Question Inifiniti Q50 Hybrid and ScangaugeII

Hi,

I just bought the SC and it works fine in my 2008 Mercedes R-Class but it doesn't seem to work in my 2014 Q50 Hybrid.

Following parameters will not show:

GPH
MAP
MPG
AVG
HPR
CPM
FPR

Does anyone had similar experiences or can give me a hint?

Thanks

Is it possible that your Infiniti uses a different communication protocol than your Mercedes ? Try setting your scanguage to Automatic Mode in the settings menu. The scangauge should detect what protocol your car is using.

Thanks for the tip. I reset to auto mode and it picked the same protocol. It's not like it's not connecting. I have readings for half of the possible parameters like RPM and temperatures and throttle position but nothing about fuel.

Update

After two weeks with the tech support from liner-logic they told me that scangauge is not compatible with my car. :-(

Only reads certain parameter like revs and temperature but not MAP or MAF. Therefor it can't display any fuel economy data.

That's a bummer. Do you know if they are going to update this list to reflect your situation ?

I have never seen a Q45 on the road. Must be a very rare vehicle.

I think the hybrid is a very solid car. On the pro side is for me the exterior and interior styling which liked much better than the BMW, Audi and Mercedes I compared with. It has plenty of torque and HP of course and it's pretty darn quick. That were the main reasones to buy the car for me. I'm also please with the fuel consumption. On my daily commute in western PA I get around 27-30 mpg on a 9 mile trip. I f I enjoy the commute it can go down to 23 mpg.

On a con side there is the not quite perfection of the car. I expected more from a premium car. Sometimes the e-motor and engine interact very rough. The transition between the one or the other are not as smooth as I would have expected. Especially at slow speed. At higher speed >20 mph it's fine. I like responsive brakes but when the car is cold in the winter the brakes are super sensitive in the beginning. The software is also faulty. Two major complaints: no backup camera lines after start (takes 2 minutes for them to show up) and in the dashboard the throttle meter has jitters from time to time. On the body side I have a crackling noise from the interior roof liner in the back of the car. Should be there at 3000 mls in a competitor of BMW and Mercedes.

Overall I like the car.
