    What all do you have working in there Sno? GPS, OBDII, TPMS, and an 8-8-8 Phidget?

    Right now the current board has scantool's micro obd200, phidgets 8-8-8, 4 pin connector on bottom right is for GPS and a 433mhz receiver. The receiver is for something different from TPMS and I thought it might do 2 things in one but will not happen that way. Also a powered 4 port hub. I am on version 1.3 being designed now with the circuit for the TPMS sold on the mp3 store in place of the wicked device's 433mhz board. Also will be adding a board on top (optional) that will have another 4 port hub with 2 Parking distance circuits (same as the kit designed by robby) and a usb port for camera/printer/scanner/whatever. The gps port will be the uplink port for the addon board and the addon board will have the new GPS port on it. The goal is to get as many of the seperate components used into 1 box with 1 usb cable out, powered by obd2 port. So far so good as it's all working as is. SNO

    Small update here and it sure has changed from version 1.0 this is version 1.3 and currently gone to PCB fab house should have in a week or so. Next level is being designed now and should be finished by tomorrow. Hopefully I will be assembling and testing both boards next weekend. SNO

    Nice progress! I think I might be up for one of these when available, or offered, as I would like to put a carputer in my Ranger next.

    These are the final design's for the add-on boards. They are made to be stacked on top of each other depending on the option's needed. One board has 2 Parking Distance systems based on the kit from robby either wired or wireless as well as a usb port for camera. The other board is more for the trucking industry that use reefer's. Most use XBee for the communication between the reefer and driver controls and also another TPMS to get the 10 tires on a rig and another usb port... they never have enough it seems.

    Any idea of the pricing required for such a beast?

    I believe I would be very interested in one of these as well.
    I was looking to do something similar but no point if yours becomes readily available.

    About the only thing not on here is a radio.

    Would be nice if someone would build a radio with amplifier options available on them. I believe the maker of the fusion brain has a thread on here for one of those but hasn't been updated in months.

    Also with the multiple radios on board how are you handling them so they don't interfere with each other?

    Hey Red I have no idea on final pricing yet but if anyone on here wants one it will be at cost, as my client is picking up the bulk of the cost's. I can supply with everything but the OBDmicro200,phidget 1010 and TPMS receiver to keep cost's down. You pay the same as me on those items.
    It's funny you mentioned a radio as that is also on the back burner. My thought on the radio was to be based on the Sl4743 chip, it has am/fm/lw/sw and weather. If someone want's to take that bull by the horns I have a couple of those chips on a 24 pin breakout board. Send me a PM outlining your details and I might send one off to you NC.
    The closest I can get to on testing up to this point was from ver1.0 of this board and everything worked fine, all signal strength was good. I'm hoping since everything is on different frequencies, there won't be a problem. I will be 100% sure in 2 weeks once everything is back from fab house and I can assemble and test. Will keep post updated with results. SNO

    I think I will be interested in one of these boards. I am currently setting up nearly everything on it but as separate units. It would be nice to have everything integrated into one board. I can't wait to see how the testing goes. Let me know what the cost will be.

    Final version is in and populated and in testing mode. So far everything is working perfectly. Should have the next level in on tuesday with parking distance system. Then to make a case using the tab and slot method. SNO

    TPMS is working great only a couple of test sensors in a pressurized spray bottle but all data populating.
