    Gavin

    I think I have some info some where about connecting directly to the engine mangment system. I'll did it out but a co-carpc creator I know if looking at writing an interface to do exactly this but as a seprate app....

    The Virtual Dashboard Visual Basic source code is available so that it can be customised for individual applications.

    Could you tell me where to find the Virtual dashboard and it's source code? I'd like to investigate this a bit further

    az1324, I don't think he wanted the same link again.
    What I think he wanted was the virtual dash source code link.

    Thanks Mag2, that's right, I'm looking for the virtual dash software. I've tried searching on here and on Google without much success.
    I've got the Autotap cable and software. I'm so impressed with it that I've become a reseller! I'm writing the webpages for it at the moment.

    What I'm interested in doing now is integrating this into my RV system.

    I found some software which allows you to read and and retrieve source code from just about anything, even OBDII.
    I'm looking for it again right now.


    update: It was "ParseRat" http://www.guysoftware.com/ and I was wrong it doesn't seem to read OBDII or DOES IT????

    I also found this http://www.virtual-keyboard.com/ I don't know if we could use this for ME or carputer application.

    Update:
    Here is a list of most vehicle diagnostic software available: http://www.autoguide.net/software/diagnostics.shtml

    B&B electronics the makers of AutoTap do sell the just the hardware interface to connect to vehicle computer and retrieve the data. http://www.vehicleinterface.com
