Does anyone use a tool to capture OBDII data from their car on a smart phone? The tools I've looked at allow you to configure your own dashboard with live data, so you're no longer stuck with the gauges and trip computer on your car.
They also include GPS tracks so you can build a database of journeys and show them on Google Earth.
I imagine they'd be useful for geeks wanting to understand how their car is performing and track people wanting get lap data. I organise a few club trips each year and it'd be great to build a log of our routes, especially so we can compare data between two people on the same route.
Here's a link to one supplier.... http://www.plxkiwi.com/kiwiwifi/software.html
I'm seriously tempted to finally get a smart phone just for this. Any feedback on similar phone apps and hardware would be appreciated before I spend my cash.
