  • Free Software OBD II Simulator redux

    Now with real windows support!
    Builds against mingw/msys to produce a completely cygwin-free tasty experience!
    Uses com0com to present virtual com port!
    Almost no bugs!



    Comes as part of OBD GPS Logger. Windows version only available in subversion right now.

    Disclaimers: "Almost no bugs" may or may not be accurate. Untested against build systems other than mingw. Supported ELM features "limited" at best. Untested with most windows OBDII programs. Open source and free. If it breaks, you get to keep both pieces. May turn into fleshreaper after midnight and snack on loved ones and/or firstborn.

    Lots of new features. Many, many, many new features.
    Code:
    $ ../bin/obdsim.exe --help
    Usage: C:\msys\1.0\home\chunky\src\obdgpslogger\bin\obdsim.exe [params]
       [-s|--seed=<generator-specific-string>]
       [-g|--generator=<name of generator>]
       [-q|--logfile=<logfilename to write to>]
       [-V|--elm-version=<pretend to be this on ATZ>]
       [-D|--elm-device=<pretend to be this on [email protected]>]
       [-w|--com-port=<windows COM port>]
       [-e|--genhelp=<name of generator>]
       [-l|--list-generators]
       [-v|--version] [-h|--help]
    The generators built into this sim:
     "Random"
     "Cycle" (default)
     "Logger"
    By default, both --elm-version and --elm-device contain "OBDGPSLogger". Some OBDII software refuses to work with devices it doesn't recognise, so I added -V and -D. For example, to pretend obdsim is from scantool.net, something like:
    Code:
    ../bin/obdsim -V "ELM 1.3a" -D "SCANTOOL.NET LLC"
    I was just now watching Rinarledge.com cross-country road trip in scantool.net's software.


    Among other plugins on the way, there's a megasquirt generator in development. There's been some OBD1 stuff before on these forums. I'd kinda like to get a vag-com one working [anyone want to donate me a VW car and a vag-com device? :-)]


    TL;DR. obdsim lets you use your favorite OBDII software with your non-OBDII car, even though that software doesn't support anything other than OBDII.

        Current build of obdsim for windows [from just-released 0.11], here:
        obdsimwindows-2009-11-25.zip

        I'm using it with com0com, which I documented here. It probably works with Xport as well as com0com, but I haven't tried that yet.
