This is exactly "supersonic", but faster than alot of other sw's I have tried available OBD.

I was talking about the digimoto SW in my posts not the needed hw parts for OBD logging.

It's a first-rate product, but it's also first-rate money....

I like Autoenginuity's product. Software + Hardware. With two sensor's the refresh rate is about every .6 seconds. With one sensor it's about every .3 seconds.
It can also read and reset Diagnostic TRouble Codes as well as clearing the CEL (technically it's a MIL, but nevermind that) ... on top of that it can initiate system tests, whereas most scan tools can only monitor.
Costs a pretty penny though. $250. Ouch!

|ricot83||o and vigge i think every software u posted up above... is for use with elmscan..... so its worthless without the elmscan interface i dont think any of em work without it|

the only thing i would b worried with just using a software, and not matching hardwre is burning my laptop or worse my car....... i feel better getting hardware and software that are matched....
just for the helll of it what kinda hardware would i need to use if i used GM Mode 22 Scan Tool by Terry

Takes about a minute or two to plots the graphs.All these programs log senosor data to file, not some "raw" strings if that is what you mean.
I cant see much use besides "visual" fun with a logger what can log a number every 1500rpm or so... I would not mention tuning and OBD logger in the same sentance the re-fresrate is way way way to slow for that...
Like I said before this logging speed is far more important to me. I respect every bodys point of view what they value, but I felt this is something wort mentioning to all who are interested in logging values.
I hopefully will have a CAN logger soon, so I be out out this "one value per 1000rpm" for ever. Sensors can also be monitored with a scope, its not too difficult to hok up.

Anyone can get "free" software lol. I don't know if you are aware of the product, but the hardware is where most of the money comes in at.
Personally, I'd rather have a program and hardware combination that reads codes, can reset the CEL light, have an estimated (if anything..) scantool, and give real time sensor readings.. all in one package RATHER THAN having to copy my values and paste them into Excel and figure out the correct formula for each wanted output. Just to save a few bucks. I highly doubt your Excel method can come up with all that data at a 1.5HZ refresh rate.
For tuning or even basic automotive maintence... I fail to see many people copying and pasting their values into Excel.
I may be off in some of my statements (so sue me), but I think you get my general point.

To me logging re-fresrate is far more important than fancy graphs or power calculator, 1/4 timers and sucs.

|JABM||To the guys already using some sort of datalogger, what software are you using?|
|03-02-2005 10:14 AM|
No offence, but IHMO digimoto is not worth the money compared to other free OBD loggers. Oh yes, if you like to look at real time "graphs" and such go for it, but I must warn you that the logging speed is far from good. With all OBD logger and saab there is a lack of log speed to begin with. Digimoto is about twice as slow as the free OBD II logger for instance. With OBD II one can get about 1.5Hz re-fresrate when two sensors are being logged.
I have personally contacted Digimoto over this issue, but after few mails they stopped to aswer my guestions, I take this as "it is how you say it". One cant blame me from trying, I have sent about a dozen mail to the genteman at digimoto asking and asking for their comments. If this is the way how paying customers are treatet at digimoto then I'm more than happy to spen my bucs elseware...
just my 0.02

Datalogging Question (Eric or Adrian maybe?)
I know that some of you guys have hooked up your laptop to the obdII port in the car to log intake temp data and such, I would like to know what it necessary to do this myself.
Software, cord, brainpower, etc
