    - Configuration dialog to setup look and feel of UI Gauges.
    - New dialog to enter maintenance records.
    - New screen “Events and Fillups” with data analysis and review abilities. Trial HOBD is limited with latest 12 records analysis.
    - Extended warnings tracking: hobdrive raises a warning if it finds MIL active, engine overheat or bad fuel trims values.
    - hobDrive now indicates detected errors and warnings with icon and sound (full version only)
    - New sensors: - Turbocharger Compressor Inlet Pressure A/B - Exhaust Pressure B1/B2 - Turbocharger RPM A/B

    Lightbulb Improvement

    Hey man, first of all, congratulations for your application, it's really great!

    But i would like to suggest three improvements:

    - On fuel economy, to have the option to display km per liter (Km/L), that's how we calculate fuel economy here in Brazil (and i guess in more places also ).

    - On acceleration, to have the option to display km/h per second (km/h . s), since we are not used to see speed in m/s, so you could choose between kmh per second and mph per second, 1 m/s is equivalent to:
    = 3.6 km·h−1 (exactly)
    ≈ 2.2369 miles per hour (approximately)
    The intention of this is to provide a more sensible acceleration, since the user will know that he is gaining/loosing 'x' kmh/mph each second, and this is very easy to implement .

    - The hability to choose what you want to display on the main screen, for example my car don't provide the air temp sensor, so it's always zero, i would like to switch for another sensor.

    Well, that's it, i hope ideas help to improve your application! and congratulations once again!

    This is in development already, you however may configure screens even now manually, editing *.layout files. Thats abit tricky, but possible.

    Thanks cail! it was very good to know that, now i can customize my screens! very nice.

    I have a question, i have a generic bluetooth adapter and it works pretty fine, except on reconnections, for example, when the system suspends (when no power) and then it turn on again, the application sometimes connects with a big delay (after hearing the sound of connection failed some times) and sometimes it doesn't, so i have to exit application and open again, then it connects.

    Anyway, is there any setting that i can adjust so this reconnection works ok?

    Thank you one more time!

    Hello Cail
    I was trying to get the info from the trac2csv but all I can get is the date and time.
    The rest is all numbers separated by commas and no idea of what the numbers represent.
    Is it possible to have the track2csv or some other way to get labels for the numbers.

    Thanx

    Keep up the excellent work

    Cail:

    First off, absolutely awesome program! I was finally able to get it up and running on my Korean navigation device, and it works flawlessly with a generic ELM327 USB adapter!

    The one problem I ran across, which I am hoping you can help with. I install the FTDI CE6 ARM virtual comport drivers into the Windows folder(http://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP/...CPDriver60.zip), which then creates the port I use to connect via HOBD. The only problem, however, is that when I power off my device and power it back on, Windows goes to it's default "state", which then means the FTDI drivers are essentially removed and I have to go through the copy/paste process prior to launching HOBD - which is a pain!

    Without cooking a custom ROM (no desires to do that), are you able to assist me in making part of the HOBD executable copy the two drivers files (ftdi_ser.dll and ftdiport.inf) from the main HOBD folder into the %windows% directory? I could probably write a small executable that will do this, however I'd like it to only require clicking on HOBD to copy the files, then launch as part of its initialization process.

    I am going to buy the pro version, and would also be willing to donate some additional money if you're able to make this request happen. Please let me know!

    Thank you very much!

    Thats strange enough. Are you sure only application restart helps? Will take a look into this.

    The rest number are obviously represent the sensor's value.
    Another value (increasing) is just a 'relative' time - it is useful in building chart in excel f.e.

    Thats not a right way to resolve things. There exist a "mortscript" - BAT files equivalent for WinCE systems. Just write simple script to copy files and run hobdrive!

    example:
    Code:
    XCopy("\StorageCard\ftdi_ser.dll", "\Windows\", TRUE)
    Run("\StorageCard\hobdrive\hobdrive.exe")
    Another example is more complex script which can enter driver DLL path into the "Unidentified USB Device" dialog prompt. I've attached it.

    BTW, some geek-related news:
    Hobdrive now has its own forum (http://hobdrive.com/forum)
    Due to .net nature and glorious mono project, I've recently made hobdrive linux compatible (that costed me change of two line in source code ;-]] So, if any linux-carpc guys here, you can run hobdrive as well.

    Hi Cail,
    thanks a lot for this awesome new version 1.1.0! :-)
    The problem is: I can't get a connection to my ECU. My car is a Honda Prelude BB9 with OBD2a ECU and a 3pin DLC connector. I tried it with an adapter 3pin to full OBD,
    but it doesn't work. I guess, the problem is the different protocol of this not fully OBD2 compatible ECU. Is there a plan to integrate this kind of (older) Honda ECUs to
    your software?
    Thanks and best regards,
    Peter
