Woo! Last night I was looking for a project. Tonight I found one. Have you ever heard of OBD-II? It's a standard that is on every car since 1996 and spits out tons of data about your car – rpm level, speed, error codes, etc. How cool is that? The connector is under your steering wheel. I went out and checked my Mustang. Sure enough, it's just to the right of where my right shin would be. So what's my project? I want to make a connector and use my Jornada to make a real-time data read out of my car's performance! Seems pretty ambitious but hopefully I'll be able to pull it off. I'm sure you'll be hearing more about this in the future. Stay tuned!
