ios would be great for the Ipad, but I also have an android phone so that is also a possibility. It wouldnt be that easy to see whats going on on such a small screen.

I would be happy with a Mac OS version of ElanScan, for the Laptop, currently using VMWARE with WinXp.

But hey, a bluetooth Android, or iPhone would be appreciated.

Did this progress any further? I don't have any laptop, and my PC is a bit too big to carry outside to get it near the car.

I do have Samsung Note tablet, and a Samsung phone, so would be interested in a Android version

Anybody though of writing just the routines needed to capture the data, and then installing it on a Raspberry PI which could be permanently mounted under the dash? The PI could be connected to the ALDL interface either with a USB port, or even directly to the PI's pins

The PI has USB and networking ports, so could be used as an interface to the Elanscan software running on the PC if necessary

Hello all (and happy new year :))
It would be a good idea indeed but if I were to code it for me I would probably just port the log feature so that the data could be viewable on a regular PC. That would be far easier to do.
As for the connectivity, there are a few phones supporting USB OTG so it could be as simple as plugging in the existing USB cable to the phone. Of course I don't know anything about the drivers, that could be the most difficult part.

I know it's been 9 months since last post on this thread but, I would purchase a cable for use with iPad Air 2 as and when it becomes available.

Kind regards

I take it we never ended up with an Android version ?!
