    Post Qube Or Fusion Brain? That Is The Question

    I am trying to decide on which hardware should i go with. The Qube which is less expensive but can i use the same software from fusion for it? Or The Fusion brain which is a little expensive but allows individual programming etc etc.

    My automation i want to setup is

    HVAC Control
    Inside & Outside Temperature Control
    AMP Control (on and off)
    ODB II Control (on and off)

    Or do you think it makes sense i control both amp and odb using a toggle switch or a push button switch, or actually use both manual and automatic control. Any ideas? I am driving a 03 Neon, will this be possible?

    Personally i would go with the fusion brain. Its tested, reliable, and more widely supported. See my plugins for RideRunner and Centrafuse as examples

    I personally use the Fusion Brain and am very pleased. I cant speak to which is better since I havent used/thoroughly researched the qube.

    this plugin is all the configuration you'll need for each of the things you wish to do. The hookups however are all up to do lol

    I've not gotten my hands on a Qube... Yet. Hopefully I'll have one mid-week next week to play around with and be able to give a side-by-side comparison of it with the Fusion Brain, Phidgets InterfaceKit, and possibly even an Arduino (bit different, but capable of some of the same stuff).
    Play with it, 'til it's broke.

    as of now, i would also feel more comfortable recommending the FB. the qube seems like it is going to have a lot of features that the Fb lacks(like routing certain features without a need for a pc).

    but, last i checked, colin was getting held up with some personal stuff, and the programming software needed work...
