    There is currently an OBD addon, I'm working on making it run a bit smoother before releasing it. It tends to be only partially reliable. The plan is to have a Gauge that you can put on any skin, or retrieve values via %variables% in skin files. Both of these are already implemented, just not used at the moment. If you want I can put up what I have and you can see if it works on your car. It also isn't very tolerant of hibernation.


    Edit: what other thing?

      Malcom,

      If you could put it up that woruld be greate.

      I am stile away from home I will be able to test it on about 4 cars here where I am at my aunts. I found a free wifi connection in a town about 30 mile from my aunts house. If you could put it up in the next 20 min I will down load it

        Alright, I'll get it to build and upload it here. BAUD rate is hardcoded atm, what baud rate are the obd tools you have? 9600?

            It's attached here. You'll have to go into your settings.xml file and make sure you have the plugin defined as such:

            Code:
            	<plugin name="ObdInfo">
            		<setting comport="COM1"/>
            		<setting start="true"/>
            	</plugin>
            where COM1 is your com port of choice. There are two .xml files included here which will replace ones in your Skins\Default folder to allow you to view the gauges. Let me know if it works!

              Hi Malcom,

              I have tryed it and it works with my car which is a Opel Zafira and it also work on my aunts Ford Festa. Well it works down to 2 of the gauges work part of the time. revs and load gauges work. The MPH was jumping around like mad. and the other one done nothing at all. Both cars give all the info above with other OBD software.

              Is it posbale to do it without gauges and read other things like fault code, temp, voltage.

              Can I design the xml file to get it to get the items above if I want if not is ok

                I'm glad to hear it was at least partially working for you. You can read temp, not voltage for fault codes at the moment, I'm working on these features though.

                    Not yet. I warn you, I'm gonna break skins at least one more time before we reach version 1.00.
