    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.
    I either will have a quick solution to adding support or make OBDII a plugin that is included in the SDK you get from the FDN so the community can add support and features...

    Well, there is an open-source SSM query tool out there called ECU.exe it's a commandline thing written in VC++ 2001. I think it came from openecu.org

    I'm not a C expert, but hopefully it won't be too hard to get it to work inside Centrafuse's framework.

    In my case, I am using the wireless BT on my scantool5 unit and i can see it reading and communicating (RX and TX lights on both the bluetooth adapter and the scantool blink), and centrafuse (latest one) shows it connected - but i get no readouts... .any ideas?

    david will look into it, but I do not think this has his highest priority...

    Well maybe now with Centrafuse finally released for sale...they can upgrade the OBD-2 functions. I would love a programmable shift light as well or rather some sort of bar graph gauge that goes from red (vacuum) to green (boost) depending on boost. It would probably help me in using less gas.
