When the time comes I would be more than happy to donate any GPS equipment that would be needed.
As an update, I managed to open up the serial port without any problems (by accessing /dev/cu.usbserial0) using PHP Sockets (sorry, not a C coder yet)..
I haven't had any success yet, I've found loads of documentation on the OBD2 and VAG ISO protocols, when I try and communicate with my ECU I hear the relay clicking as it tries to send data, but nothing is received back, I think this is a timing issue..
Also, with it being winter, I'm less inclined to stay in my car because its cold, also because it means leaving my ignition on (to counteract this, what I would do was connect a battery charger to the car to help keep the battery topped up, and I got a 5 meter active USB extension cable, and yes the cable works fine on an XP laptop with VAG-COM)..
I'll keep digging when I have time.
Oooh will take a look at this now, thankyou
