Something for Linux besides FreeDiag/ScanTool?
Right now the plan is to use Suse in my carputer with a VM running XP or 2K and In Car PC to monitor my OBD2 port.
Is there a reasonably mature and stable package with a nice GUI for Linux? This has to impress customers, that's why I like In Car PC (for it's looks) and why I don't particularly like FreeDiag/ScanTool.
Then again, my navigation will be limited to the capabilities of GPSDrive unless I use a VM to run something like iGuidance for turn-by-turns (don't say roadnav to me ), so I may be stuck with a VM anyway (Feel free to suggest a Linux-based navigation program that's actually good at resolving turn-by-turns and solve that dilemma for me.).
Even so, I'd like the OBD2 monitoring to be done in the host, not the VM.
Is there anything (yet)?
Why not just use Winblows until such time decent applications are available for Linux?
It makes life so much easier.
Because this is my license plate:

Lol - good one.
Ah well, you have to hang tight for decent supporting apps for linux Your carputer should be up and running in, mayb, 3-4years then....rofl.
Seriously though, I luv linux, but having no/few supporting apps is crap, and hence the reason I am developing a XP Embedded image for my setup.
Good luck though, and keep us posted.
Btw, the image on the spare tyre-cover would look mean, nice choice!
Maybe not so long! I just noticed a blurb in the GPSDrive FAQ commenting that turn-by-turn navigation may be on its way using NASA's OpenStreetMap system.
