    Hi!
    I know this is a very old thread... Do you still have this app for android?
    If you do, I would love to try it!

    Thanks,
    Peleg

    Yes, the app is still on the market, just search for it.

    I should be releasing a much needed update soon too.

    Malcom, what would you say is the 'best' Bluetooth adapter to buy? I'm thinking more of quality, compatability etc. Thanks.

    CreativeOMind: That would be the OBDlink from scantool.net (http://www.scantool.net/scan-tools/s...bluetooth.html)

    I don't know if anyone has run across such a thing or not, but I've designed a tiny Bluetooth OBDII module that is based on Scantool.net's STN1110 chip and has a FCC certified Bluetooth module on it. The adapter is a little smaller than OBDKey too. The whole design is open source as well, and although it wasn't really designed with the OP's app in mind, it should work well w/ it for all those looking for a decent Bluetooth OBDII adapter. It also has a very low power standby mode, which allows you to leave it plugged into your vehicle all the time! Check out the adapter and download design files here: http://batman.homelinux.com/blog/blu...obdii-adapter/

    Congrats on launching the product. Please ask us next time before posting a commercial product. Our commercial seller rules here:http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/misc.php?do=vsarules

    Since we're on the topic, What is the difference between your device and a device like this? http://distributors.scantool.net/dow...duct_brief.pdf

    Hmm...well I'm not seeing how this is a commercial product as the hardware is 100% open source, and if someone wanted to, everything is available on my blog to make their own adapter w/o paying me a penny. The adapter's sole purpose at this point is to allow people to be able to develop their own hardware for interfacing to their vehicle if they so desire. PCBs/parts/kits/assembled units are available to buy from my blog to speed the development. I don't have a company nor am I representing one, so I'm having a hard time seeing how this is any different than someone posting a link to a real commercial product as in many of the posts above other than a statement saying I designed it.

    The difference between my adapter and Scantool.net's is that mine is open source hardware (I actually have an agreement w/ Scantool.net to have my adapter open source), you can buy bits and pieces of it for your own development...etc. Mine also offers many of the same features as theirs for less than 1/2 the cost if someone decided to buy an assembled unit. I also had my adapter out and available before they did (almost a year ago now) if that matters at all.

    The intent of my post above was to provide another option amongst the many other options out there, of which none are open source hardware.
