    ODBII Interface

    Hey Guys, great front end! I am very impressed with what I have been seeing. I own a company that does Home Automation and carputers are not far off from what we do in a home. Hence my extreme interest in building one. I have already decided to use Open Mobile, I am just working on my equipment list.

    My question is what OBDII interface do I need? I will be installing the system in my 2004 F150.

    Well i'll start off with a warning that openMobile OBDII support is not finished yet...

    That said, when it is finished (~a month or so) you will be able to use any obdII hardware you want. ELM based hardware will be first but really any hardware should work.

    Thanks. It will probably be at least a month to I get things together and ready to start the install itself. So I can wait for the OBD support.

    I googled ELM and see that they only make the chip. Any recommendations as to which third party company? I don't won't junk.
