    app idea !!!

    ok this one is for car guys/girls how about an app that you can input your car make/model/year and then input the engine code when the check engine light comes on so that it lists the code and problem like an obd tool

    Are you talking about just a searchable database of codes or a full OBD-II interface?

    searchable database/ considering that the driver would have to buy an obd connector that has a small usb connector for the phone that would be awesome but more costly a project because then the owner would have to search out the cable.
    it would be cool if the database also contained a setup that would send you a list of parts/ideas of what cause the code other than something like

    p0102 02 sensor failure

    it could go something like:

    p0102 02 sensor failure
    Average cost for part $23
    est. install time 30 minutes
    difficulty of install easy

    of course thats just an idea

    Not a bad idea. I did a quick search and came across a couple of companies attempting to develop a bluetooth / wifi obd connector with corresponding software for Android. Something exists for the iphone and winmo already, but i can't find anything really solid for our platform.

    ive searched too im a huge car guy and its nice to be able to pull a code realquick and reference it on the fly instead taking it somewhere and have them pull it or pay $100 for an obd scanner that gives you an idea of the issue but no help for a solution.

    on a similar direction, being a big motorcycle person I thought an app to make adjustments to a bike's Power Commander instead of having to use a laptop, would be a great idea. I would think that cords wouldn't be such a factor as PCs area already have USB connectivity.
