If anyone's interested in an on screen keyboard i found this.
Its an app that launches the osx builtin keyboard. Might be useful for plugins you might use.
saw this on the news this morning, thought it was cool since we were talking about OBD-II ($89 isn't too bad either)
on another note, too bad this company doesn't make a OS X version of this scantool software!:
here is the python module pyobd screen shot, it supposidly works under OS X:
No one has an OBDII OSX solution.
Which astounds me.
What astounds me MORE is that no one is attempting to create one.
The fact there is NONE makes ANY option all the more sweeter, for users and especially the coder.

You can tether your phone to the Mac via Bluetooth or USB and then have a constant connection and thus, be able to use Skype or the Internet for browsing. Although at that point, it'd probably be easier just to use the damn cellphone to make the call!
Unless you've already got a data plan! My response was more in reference to someone asking Verizon's EV-DO cards.
But again a data plan cost what? $40 a month? yeah, makes more sense to use a cell phone to tether, rather than pay for your cell phone AND a data plan, however, my thought is; Amp already has wardriving, and skype, for at least now, is free, so why not use the two?
tested out the latest version of amp out with my powermate (which is soley use)
what i thought was to enable this to be used is you allow arrow keys to be used (up down left right etc) this is how i use my powermate and that seems to be the obvious way
correct me if im wrong but thats what i would like !
keep up the good work!
1) Thank you for your work. I am sure that will be the best front end.
2) two important things need amp:
There arent software... I know.

3) Will be interesting run amp with remote controller. I have remote buddy and work very well.
From Spain, thats all. Sorry for my bad english and thanks again for your work and your time.
There are two solutions for GPS. They aren't perfect, but they do work.
One is to use Roadnav, an open source, free GPS program. It has good maps for the U.S. based on US government Tiger data. Since I don't live in Spain, I haven't looked into the sources for maps there, but the program has links to all kinds of locations and there might be Spanish maps available.
You can read my review on Roadnav here
The second solution is to use Google Earth, assuming GE has maps for Spain in it. [Edit - I just checked and there are streets in GE for Barcelona. I don't know about the rural areas, but if you're in the city, both the streets and the aerial photographs are pretty good.] You can read how to implement a Google Earth solution on your Mac here.
