you have an onboard computer?

Not right now but I plan on it. A sheeva plug (or pogo plug) has a low enough current draw that I think it could be left running 24x7 and not drain the battery enough to care, but also be configured to auto boot and shutdown as needed with the right power supply. If you add in wifi you can run a tablet or phone as a head unit that can boot quickly (and be put away easily for safety), or you could run a usb based touch screen. But with wireless the head unit would only need power and interact with the main computer over wireless. The main computer can be kept dry and concealed and all the wiring can be run discretely. That's the plan anyway

Charles, I'm definitely going to make one. Let me know I'd you want "in". Depending on the price of that TtS plug, I might go a different route though.
In exchange, you work in getting a software solution that will work on the Mac! [[actually, might be easier that it looks, I got GIT + Xcode + that QtSDK installed today; will try to compile the libs + widget tomorrow]]

can we also add pool option for "I have no idea of half of the terms used in this thread"?

Yeah I'm definitely doing one. The the plug is looking tough to find so it might just be best to put in something more generic. Don't go buying without talking to me.

I looked at the source and contacted the author before spending too much time on changes to make sure he's on board. He says someone else is already looking into it. It looks relatively straight forward, the hard bit being some OSX specific code to set the non-standard baud rate and some other serial io stuff. I am guessing that 99% of the rest of the stuff currently #ifdef'd for linux will be the same for the mac. I do want to get it to run on a mac, but I'll likely deploy on linux.

Maybe a source for the plug here ...

Nice catch! I asked Colin to confirm (the libcomm14cux guy) and he concurs. He says these were used by Bently too

Loic, let's talk tonight about putting in an order.

I'll take a couple if you are placing an order... i might have some time to home-brew something ... i'd still like an arduino based tester ... i like the idea of it sending my throttle position output to twitter! ;-)

Ok.

Here is what I think we need - an arduino based 14cux2odbdII converter. Then you open up the world of obdII resources to use with the data.

yep ... just the libcomm14cux that runs on arduino would open up a whole world of fun

Post up if you are able to get a response from those companies. I have not had any luck with those places listed so far, been using alligator clips so far.

It looks like arduino is just a simplified atmel setup, thats what my last serial comm to bluetooth was based on. Just need one that has 2 UARTs
