Anyone hear of anything in development or anything? I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I came across a thread on Vortex talking about it but nothing further. Anyone?

I would buy that shit in a heartbeat. But I wish they would because I have an iPhone and a new MacBook Pro and OSX isn't supported at all. Only shitty windows FTL [down] ha

It'd be great to not have to lug my 17" widescreen laptop out everytime I want to run diagnostics...

OBD-2 port Relocation would be ideal too. MK3 cars have the best spot, right under the Radio.

They have VAG for Palm I think.

Here's the thread:

And don't you mean female to female?

There's no word on anything in the works, but I was wondering if anyone heard anything differently.

And yeah, I've seen it for palm, but I couldn't bring myself to buy a palm JUST for VAGCOM.

Just saw that posted over on honda-tech which is what made me post this here. Thinking about buying it.

you should be posting this somewhere other than here. maybe a developer would be nice to you. haha.

have you used winpwn for 2.0 yet? theres hardly any apps. :(

and you could always just score an old, smaller, cheap laptop off craigslist. i got an old skool p3 600mhz dell for $85 with a wireless card already stuck in the pci slot.

oh, and you can run xp on top of os x. thats what i did when i had a macbook. for the 2 months or whatever it was i owned. what a disaster of a computer.

i think hpa might be developing VAD for the iphone, thats theyre mobile software that runs on palm. But i could be wrong.

I do the same damn thing. I have to lug my damn computer all the way to my garage and run an extension cord and ethernet cable all over the damn house.

I'll be going to school for CE in the Fall and one of the projects that I wanted to do if I have enough free time is a diagnostics application for the iPhone. It wouldn't be nearly as advanced as VAG-COM initially, and I think I might design it not VAG-specific (all cars use a required protocol; however manufacturers may customize it with special packets and such).

But don't expect anything soon [:p]

You know you can run BootCamp or similar programs that let you load Windows as well as Window's apps right?

Hmmmm, I've been thinking about writing an app like this. I've got a developer license for the iPhone and I've been dying for some sort of OBD-II access.

The only problem is I'm not too familiar with the whole OBD-II interface (or the VAG specific stuff). I'll do some digging and post up if any of this amounts to something. In the meantime, if anyone is more familiar with the VAG-COM and OBD-II side of things, PM me!

OOOooooOOOOOHHHH! [insert crossed fingers Smilie here)

I put Dynolicious on my iPhone, haven't run the A4 with it yet... and I don't have an actual rigid base in the GLI either... but it's very neat.

I just bought that for mine, the first run was acutaly pretty accurate(after that I had trouble with it because of the terrain I was on), the HP was almost exactly where my car was on the AWD dyno I went to.

I got 170 w/o my FMIC on the AWD dyno and 177 with my FMIC on my chiped k03 with the dynolicious, so you figure mabye a few HP off, but otherwise pretty accurate for what it is..

it's a neat app, the only weakness is that it needs to be still, which is hard to do with a SB stage 5 clutch sitting it in the cupholder..

defentaly worth the $13 though.

the company claims 0-60 accuracy within 0.08secounds and distance (0-60' 1/4mile stuff like that) accuracy within 0.10 secounds.

pretty good imo.
