    I'm still interested. Is there any plans to make this a little more graphical? ie gauge-style formats? I found some BT OBD II ELM 327's on eBay, I'm ordering one for my Dad, and thinking about getting one for myself.
    Due to the cancellation of the penny, I no longer give 2¢ about anything. I may however, give a nickel

    Yes, we will continue to add features to the app after it's release. One item we intend to include will be data logging so you can review the data .

    Congratulations! I'd love to write a review for the site; any idea where to obtain a loaner OBDLink Bluetooth scanner for this purpose? Please send me a message via the site if you can help. Thanks. {Jonathan}

    Also, any idea if the PLX Devices Kiwi Bluetooth OBDII scanner (although marketed for Android devices) will work with this software? It's $50 cheaper than the OBDLink on Amazon. Again, thanks. {J}

    Too bad my 2.1 on Bell can't get 2.x software... otherwise would definitely give it a go.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    OK, I've ordered an inexpensive BT OBDII scanner from Amazon, and will try it with this software. I know it's a isk, given that this publisher has not confirmed compatibility, but I'm giving it a shot anyway. To quote Ruby, stay tuned. {Jonathan}

    The application was written to be compatible with ELM327. So any BT device that supports that should work.

    Just want to say that as a car tuner, I'm very excited about this. I have an Actron ODBII scanner that has all the diags but very limited real-time data.

    G-Tech capability would be awesome in a future version.

    Personally I have one of the Actron as well. The limiting factor is going to be what's available in the standard. Most of the vehicle manufacturers impliment some of the standard but the really interesting things are only available by purchase.

    The fees for the proprietary information are high.

    Been planning this for a while. Just had to wait for WebOs to catch up to the ideas.

    I just purchased for my Pre 2 (connected to Bell). Anyone know where I can get a compatible BT OBDII scanner locally in Calgary, AB, Canada?

    Couldn't wait. Went ahead and ordered this from eBay. Hope it works.

    I have a Pre Classic, that's why it didn't.

    $52.99 - ELM327 Bluetooth OBD-II Wireless Transceiver Dongle - OBD/OBD2 Car Diag. Tools

    This is the one I have. It works just fine with my N810 with Carman and the software it came with on my Centro. So presumably it would work.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    Thought I'd post my experiences using this software, since I've finally gotten some results.

    My setup:
    2002 Ford Taurus SEL & 2003 Ford Windstar SEL
    Palm Pre 2 on Verizon Wireless (running webOS 2.1)
    DigiObdii software
    Soliport ELM 327 Bluetooth module (via Amazon.com)

    My experiences:
    The Soliport unit is as generic as they come, which may explain some of my issues. I plugged it into my cars and was able to pair it with my Pre 2 (as an "Other" device under Bluetooth Preferences). Once I did so, it showed up under the Preferences section of the DigiOBDII software. I tried each of the program's options and, at first, was unable to get any response; I got a variety of Bluetooth and other errors, and when I tried to manually tap on the Soliport listing under Bluetooth Preferences to manually link to it, I couldn't connect. Finally, today, I was able to obtain at least some results; after pairing in the Bluetooth Preferences app (the Soliport's pairing code is 1234, by the way, although there's no manual that tells you that!), I launched DigiOBDII and selected one initial sensor under the Sensor Setup (RPM), then launched Data Log. The Bluetooth icon at the top of the screen went grey and then back to unconnected. I backswiped to the main menu and tried Data Log again. This time, it actually paired with the Soliport and I started getting some RPM data (which seemed to match my tachometer). Success! Only problem is, once I backswipe again to the main menu, I cannot get either the Data Log or the other options (Diagnostic Codes or Data Graph) to pair with and use the Soliport unless I go to Bluetooth Preferences, disable and reenable Bluetooth, and then try twice within the DigiOBDII software.

    In other words, this is the only method that works for me:

    1) Disable Bluetooth
    2) Enable Bluetooth
    3) Launch one of the DigiOBDII choices.
    4) Wait and watch it fail to properly connect.
    5) Backswipe to the main DigiOBDII menu.
    6) Launch the same choice again.
    7) Watch it work.

    Since I only have the one Soliport ELM 327 module, I can't determine whether the issue is the Soliport, some aspect of DigiOBDII, webOS' implementation of Bluetooth, or something odd about my car (although the latter is least likely). I don't really want to invest in another ELM 327 Bluetooth module until I have some more information.

    Anyone else had a chance to try this yet? {Jonathan}

    At step 4, what error message do you get?
