  • OBDroid, Android based bluetooth OBD2 scan tool

    IPhone has Rev, however the Android has nothing for OBD2 gauges and logging, so I decided to write an app to do just that. Presenting OBDroid! This program is in the very early stages, and atm it only supports a few OBD2 values, and the bluetooth adapter address is hardcoded in.... but it works!

    If anyone is interested in testing this, I would be more than happy to work with people on an individual basis making sure it works until I get it to a stable enough point to release it.

            Hey looks good. As soon as I got my Droid I started working on a bluetooth OBD application too. My app is called Voyager. Hit me up if you're interested in working together!

              Sorry, I don't need any help with this project, I need beta testers :P

              powermaxtransmi PM me your email address along with the model of phone and bluetooth obd2 you have if you don't mind. Be advised that due to the lack of descent bluetooth functionality in earlier Android versions, this application is for Android 2.0+ only.

                I would love to test your app, I dont have a bluetooth obd adapter yet, I would like to see the apps available first.

                also, regulatre I would like to have a look at yours as well.

                  I'm willing to test.

                  I got this bluetooth obdii interface from ebay:
                  http://cgi.ebay.com/Bluetooth-Scannn...item3a510212cc

                  Will this work? I also have the Sprint HTC Hero Android, but I do know that it's 1.5 not the 2.0 that is needed.

                  So, 2 hurdles for me. If you say my bluetooth obdii interface won't work, then I'm out. If it's good, I'll work on getting a 2.0 Android.

                    Wow, I am really impressed with your screen shot! I would like to beta test. I would consider buying the bluetooth elm if you are serious about getting this app going.

                      Yes I'm serious about it. I plan on eventually putting it on the market once it's in a stable enough condition to do so. I'm working with Tidder at the moment on getting the interface up and running, however I've tested this on three different vehicles (all with the same scan tool) so it's getting close to being releasable. What phone and firmware do you have?

                        I can't say for sure if that interface will work. Judging purely by the price I would say it'd probably not work anyway. It's a cheap chinese knockoff, and I can't afford to support all the different non-compliant ELM327 imitation interfaces.

                        Who knows... it might work. Some people get lucky with the knock off brands, but I've never had any luck with them. Buy a quality tool and I can guarantee it will work if your car is OBD2 compliant

                              Once the Hero gets 2.0, come see me Until then unfortunately, I don't believe this will work for 1.5 due to the lack of a good amount of bluetooth support.


                              I now have a working beta program, so if anyone is interested and has a 2.0+ phone, let me know and I'll send it your way.
