    that's good that the parsing engine worked in Centrafuse... now need to see why it wasn't connecting before...

    was your connector not secured good possibly?

    I still plan to go through and revamp the OBD code and post updates for people to test, but have a few items I have to finish coding first before I get to it...

    im pretty sure all connectors were fine. the only one i can see coming loose is the actual cable to factory obd port, and i unplugged and plugged it back in many times when obd wasnt connecting to try and see if that was the problem.

    but it seems to be working pretty good now, no clue why, but ill take it.

    My Mitsubishi FTO doesn't support the ODBII protocol, which obviously rules out the use of the engine management pages out of the box. Currently I output engine management data in the Mitsubishi MUTII standard, which is logged by a program called EVOSCAN.

    Evoscan is all well and good, but I'd prefer a proper embedded display such as the one in Centrafuse. Does the software in centrafuse connect directly to the ODBII port, or can it be coded to pickup inputs from another source? I ask this so I can use a program such as EvoScan to dump the data to abother file format for Centrafuse to pickup and display. Is this possible? Additonally, is there any thoughts on the introduction of gauges etc for the ODBII pages?

    Thanks

    Anything could possibly be displayed on the OBDII plugin, currently it reads it's source from the choice of inputs of ELM chips, but I guess it could be set to read from a file as well... I will think on it...

    We do plan to add gauges, but after the first version of the application is completed...

    Hope this helps david and raygun

    I have not gotten to working on OBDII yet... I have all my bugs seperated by section...

    I should hopefully finish up all application bugs by tonight, then I will be working to fix the 10 or so phone related bugs/fixes that I have...

    Then the last section is OBDII... All this should be happening before the end of the weekend, hopefully...

    Out of interest, is there (or will there be) a plugin architecture for adding OBD-II style plugins at all?
    This means that someone else could produce a plugin for SSM (as used by the Cobb Accessport) or Mitsubishi's system, or Nissan's Consult system.

    Most of the manufacturer-specific diagnostics protocols have major advantages over OBD-II, usually that you can transfer data a lot quicker (eg. Using SSM I can poll every sensor on my car once every 0.2 seconds)

    I realise that writing support for all of them is unreasonable, so hopefully others can do it and display on your gauges when you have them ready.
