  • Port to Android?

    Any chance this could be ported over to android?

    "Android is a mobile operating system running on the Linux kernel. It was initially developed by Google and later the Open Handset Alliance. It allows developers to write managed code in the Java language, controlling the device via Google-developed Java libraries" -

    All android phones have GPS and Bluetooth built in..

    Would love to have this on my G1

    afaik, Android requires apps to be written in Java. OBDGPSLogger is written in C. I believe you can right lowerlevel stuff in C with Android, but the UI would have to be rewritten in Java.

      Aye, what he said. OBDGPSLogger is written mostly in C, which I don't think works with Android. I'm open to suggestions and stuff, though.

        Quick question, I saw TeleNav nominated as the best GPS navigation app by the Android Network. (this is their blog page where it is posted: Should I get this service or is some other service like Google Maps available? Thanks for the help.
