Ok, I know you've got another project or two on your plate (HCH1 LiFePO4 hybrid!).

You'll see what I'm talking about when you start driving your plugin hybrid with the HCH1 IMAC&C anyhow.

Sam,
Was on the wrong page literarily, didn't read the middle part. But did spend about two weeks reading, I didn't know they was a smaller selling version of mima control that don't need the OBDIIC&C that a problem For the hch1. bump into the video, capod has the same year as me, so was judging the comparability through that angle, much work for the hhc1. But this solves the 2 data stream problems, gages data and ima/soc data reliability.

On parking lots 1 click assist was first 10% about 13-14 rpm Perfect about 3- 7 mph now it's said to be 15% that about 18-19 rpm What mph is that? Too fast? So can you can click forward and cancel back and Forth to control speed following a car that way?
I think Iam going to wait till see what Pete might do to the lower drivability,but can you get a finish assembled item?

Yes, I frequently use the assist/regen/cancel buttons to stay with traffic... usually what happens is on a segment of my commute, it's a steady 45mph speed limit, but with lots of side roads causing perturbations in speed.

I often "dial in" my foot to about 60mpg, then use assist/regen to fine adjust my speed (assist to accelerate slightly, regen to decelerate) without ever having to drop from lean burn.

As for whether or not Peter sells a finished item, I don't know, I know I can easily build one if you get the circuit board/software from Peter.

You can get an assembled and cased one from me for an extra fee ontop of the $100 base cost.
That extra cost will be less than $100 but not quite sure exactly at the moment.

I only work on feature requests for people who actually own the device and have it installed.

I'm sorry if I haven't read enough, I have been following this thread off and on to try to stay up to date. As I'm reading I'm hoping that we are talking about a MIMA sort of device for the Civic Hybrid HCH?!! First off if this isn't the case I apologize. However if it is and now I think I see that there is a possiblity to either purchase a product that has been tested, or at least purchase the specific parts that both are needed and work together, that simply ROCKS. I would be very interested in talking about how to get this done. If none of this applies, well sux I have been just reading what I want to read to create what I want to create...good day!

Yep, it'll work for your 2004, but not your 2009.

I've been testing it for months now, and aside from one regen glitch that turned out to be a bad button (now replaced), I've had no trouble at all with mine. Not sure what the exact effect on mileage has been, as the installation coincided with my moving closer with a more stop and go commute, but I'd guess the fact that I'm still making nearly the same mileage as when I had a nice long steady 55mph commute has something to do with this device (also, I got a MaxIMA battery from Eli to replace my ailing OEM one).

Peter's done a great job here... if you get a pre-made unit or have someone build it for you, 4 wire splices and that's it for the install. The board itself is very simple (and tiny), all the magic happens in his software.

Thank you for the quick response! As I'm reading, the "magic board" that has been created by peter is for sale? And for $100?! As for the splices I'm pretty confident in that part if that is all that it takes, I'm assuming that purchase of this would allow me instructions! There is a lot of talk about buttons, so I take it that to get the assist you use a button technique instead of a joystick? I'm pretty used to the MIMA joystick on my insight so is there any thoughts in that as an option?

The blank pcb and software access is $100 paypald to me at address in sig below.

A built and tested board is about another $100 on top but it's easy enough to source the parts and build it yourself a lot cheaper.

The only instructions are in this thread so you have to do some digging.
Ditto connections etc Schematic and pics etc.
Others will chip in to help if you get stuck.
First read the entire thread and print out schematics and pics/button commands/parts lists etc.

The operation is by button clicks there is no joystick option.

If I'm reading correctly, $100 to you would get me the information needed to build a board for probably cheaper than $100 then I would need to dig on central to figure out how to put it into the HCH!? Is this correct?

Well, if you really want to build a board, the schematics are in this thread, you can make your own breadboard version like I did for initial testing.

The finished board is much nicer though.

Personally, I'm excited about getting the word out for this device, I'd be willing to populate a board for you at my cost plus shipping if you're interested. The actual parts that go on the board run $9.30 + shipping... you supply your own USB cable.
