    ALDLdroid

    This is an app for Android that a guy is making. I know him from another forum. The funny thing is, he doesn't even use a Delco ECM, he uses a Mega Squirt, and saw something like this for that system, and decided to make one for the Delco crowd.

    It looks pretty good, and he's wanting to implement datalogging both through a wired connection and through BT. I know he bought a BT cable from one of our very own to test the BT connection. He's making a bench test set-up as we speak to test this.

    Anyway, here's the video:


    If anyone is selling an Android device, let me know, I need to replace my iPhone. ;) lol

    Right now he's mostly just playing with appearance and a few other things, until he gets his bench test set-up, well, set-up.

    If I had an android device (I'm looking) I would be testing this for him, but unfortunately, I have no money for a device. :(

    Hey guys, I'm the one developing this! I'm 91z24 on v6z24 and 90BlueZ on 60degreev6, and 3400tZ around here... such a terrible idea to have usernames based on the car I own since I had quite a few Z :P

    Robert, I'm glad some people are realizing the amount of work required to do this, not everybody does :) I could say the same with ripping hair out for the work you're doing on the firmware side tho :) I'm more into higher level type of programming. I'm really having fun with Android lately.

    Chris, if you have an ostrich for sale, you might end up with enough money for an Android device :P I would like to add real-time tuning to the app at some point but it will be a while.

    As Chris said, the value displayed on the dashboard are currently just random garbage until I get the ECU comms working. I should receive all the stuff I need for my bench test late next week and will have everything working soon after that I hope. It is the most important part of the app really, so I have to focus on it very soon as most of the other stuff is usable for a first version.

    i can't really do higher level languages at all(yet).... i can get arduino code to work out, but beyond that i'm lost.

    Yeah, it's totally different! I'm too used to high level stuff now that when I get into low level stuff, even Arduino, I felt like I had to code everything from scratch and I got fed up. I had a similar project (as ALDLdroid) for MegaSquirt but Arduino based, but I felt like it was a waste of time as I could do the same so much more easily and with a much more powerful result on Android.

    Robert, do you have an Android device ready to test this thing ? :)

    i have what is left of my wife's tablet.... killed the screen and touch sensor after a fall, but the HDMI output likely still works. if only i had something that would accept HDMI natively....
