I've been reading a bit lately about these bluetooth transmitters that you can pair with an Android phone and use apps to basically have a dashhawk type interface on, so I went ahead and ordered this one.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003MQ89X4/ref=oss_product

Will post up my impressions once I get it and have a chance to play with it.

From what Chris told me about vag com this isn't going to replace it. It's more like a dash hawk on steroids.

One of my teacher Buddies at wcc had something similar with his iPhone and wifi. It's cool! Read fuel trims and everything. I am trying to get Erin to get it for here new iPhone 4.

I ran a data log on the way home and it saved off a google earth data file which I downloaded to my computer and I can see data logs in 1 second intervals for my whole trip. I can even tell when I switched lanes on the freeway. Laughing

I've barely scratched the surface though. Gonna spend some time learnin' stuffs on http://torque-bhp.com.

I just put in the mini-cd that came with it and found a file entitled "software instruction.txt". Within it is the following epic text.

"we suggest that you can use "scantool_net113win",if you think that this software isn't easy to use, you can free to choose following software:EasyOBDII,OBD2Spy,ScanMaster-ELM.But them require lisence."

The only video camera I have is my phone. So without a complex system of mirrors that isn't going to happen. Laughing

(Psst, check youtube)

1 second intervals? are you logging a shit ton of things? can there be more resolution? doesn't seem useful from a tuning standpoint.

That is the interval at which it writes things to the data log file. It's selectable down to 0.1 seconds or up to 5 seconds.

i looked at some videos, this tool doesnt seem to be very useful for a Vag-Com, it only looks like a bunch of different gauges to see, engine speed and pounds of boost, that the car is running
