You're right, it would be worthless.Originally Posted by cadence117
But, it would be usefull, if, for example, you could set the maximum speed to 60, and when you go faster than 60, a warning message appears.
I'm gonna put something out there, and if you want it you can take it, if not just send it right back....
and I know it's pretty worthless and has no actualy functionality except looking really awesome, but hear me out.
Whenever I drive with music I sub-conciously time my driving with temp/style/energy going on with the music. This, combined with milkdrop visulisations provides for a pretty trippy experience.. but i want more.
How cool would it be to have your OBD-II input into a winamp visualization. Acceleration/turning/braking/ all could have some affect on the visualization so that when you speed up or take a left, the image actually looks like you're speeding up in a wormhole and veering to the left.
Anyways, if your bored and have no life.

Yeah, this is something that I planned to look into when I got an OBD reader.
It may not be too functional, but I think it would a cool feature, and I don't think most of us would be on this site if we only installed stuff in our car that we NEEDED.

Cool Idea. Definite pimp factor/no funtionality.
Lets see someone do it

Once I actually get something OBD working reliablity I'll give it a go. Though i think I'd probably do RPM + MAF as that would change a lot depending on how you drive. The turn left/right thing is a no no as far as I know
