    Lightbulb Do any front ends support ODBII adapters?

    I'm in the process of getting all my hardware together for my carpc install.

    I'm interested in getting all the goodies such as gps, rearview cam, odbii, etc.

    I was curious if any of the front ends have support for ODBII data, gauges, or anything at all.

    I'm trying to pick out a front end, I was going to choose either Road Runner or Centrafuse... Roadrunner doesn't have support for ODBII, and probably won't ever by the looks of it. Centrafuse looks like it might have support for it...

    What do you guys use your ODBII for and how do you do it? (software, etc)

    Thanks for the info

    Actualy i'm using Road Runner, with pcmscan embeded into my skin.

    but it's very far from perfect. Many problem with it. I've searched for month for a solution.
    And now i'm writing my own front end. perhaps i will do my own obd2 integration. Tired off all those odb2 software looking ugly, not touch screen friendly and slow.

    Instead of writing your own Front End, why don't you script/piggyback the OBD-II software and take all of the necessary information out of it to put into your favorite skin?
