    I read about this a while ago - the guy who wrote the app in those videos (the uploader) says he's written it in Java as a hobby and he won't release it as it could be too easily decompiled. In one of his comments he says he wants to rewrite it into C before he'd release it - he could make a fortune with that but I guess he'd also get some unhappy people sniffing around too!

    Didn't realise they had an Apple compatibie version out now too with the Wifi. The mrs would kill me if I bought one of these now

    Sparkfun have this board based off the same chipset as the OBDLink dongles if anyone likes to tinker - have to admit I think i'd just go for the freedom of wifi!

    nobody seemed that excited a few months back.

    theres ways to obfuscate Java code so that you can't used the simple cavaj JAD type decompiling tools.
