...AND IT'S NOT MINE!

Some of you know I was writing a program for the Palm to give away for code reading and data logging. Well, I procrastinated too much on finishing it because here's a better one than what I was wriiting:

http://qcontinuum.org/obdgauge/

OBD-Gauge has been around awhile, but it didn't read codes. I just went back to the site on a lark and here he has integrated code reading, realtime display and data logging into his package and he's still just giving it away!

I HIGHLY recommend it if you have an Scantool.net interface or other interface based on the ELM series chips.

Here's some screenshots:








And here's a shot of the PC software that lets you look at the data from it after you've recorded it.




Really, I'm not sure I'd do it as well as he -- I just wouldn't put that much time into it. So I'm abandoning my Palm project and just using his. It kind of makes me sad -- but I just can't see putting time in totally reinventing the wheel, as it were. Especially since his is free.

I think that one is more expensive (though probably more capable for logging). Some of the most inexpensive options are available at http://www.scantool.net and they give away code reading software for your laptop.
