Thanks for the info. I've played with the GetDashboardConfig() methods 
and hook posibilities already.
I want to use the Dashboard of the OVMS via the smartphone (placed in 
the holder of the e-Up) which is connected to the OVMS APs WiFi. Imho 
there is no point in showing data I have already in the cars dashboard 
(i.e. km/h) in the OVMS dashbard. I want to display mainly values there 
I don't see in the car yet...

So thats why I don't want to hook or frankly even fill the values of the 
standard dashboard.

I will give MyWebServer.RegisterPage() a try.
