We are please to announce the 0.5.0 (BETA) release of openOBD.
This release has the basis of the most important functionality;
* Connect to an ELM OBD-II interface device through a serial port
* Check MIL status and clear any stored error codes
* View live PID data (engine temps/fuel status etc) depending on what is
supported by a particular vehicle.
Available for both Windows and Linux (deb or rpm), and source code, from
https://sourceforge.net/projects/openobd/files/... read more
The good news:
Connects to device
Menu item View:Get PIDS will write some PID values into the log window
(remember to connect to device first!)
Can see MIL status and reset (WARNING - can't yet see what they are so
use with extreme care)
The bad news:
This is VERY alpha.
Only builds on Linux
No "make install"
Serial port hard coded into obdFrame::onMenuConnect
Only works for ELM327 interface devices
No covenient way to access PIDs
