ScanTool for EEE PC
Posted 02 February 2008 - 07:09 AM
You need a compatible OBD-II interface first before you can use this program. I tested this with my ELM327 chip via Bluetooth.
ScanTool for EEE-PC is a modified version of ScanTool. It can be used with compatible OBD-II (On Board Diagnostic) chip to read trouble code from an OBD-II compatible vehicle. It can also read real-time data such as "Engine RPM", "Intake Air Flow (MAF)", "Fuel trims" and etc.
The reason why it was modified is because the original ScanTool would not work or run on ASUS EEE-PC's native resolution of 800 x 480. On a 7 inch monitor, the sensor outputs would be too small for users to read, especially while driving. Some of the sensor names were too long, so when the fonts were enlarged, they simply cannot fit into the screen.
I have tried some OBD-II software, most of them either don't work well with the 7 inch screen, or they are not open-source. The goal of this project is to modify this wonderful software usable on an ultra portable laptop such as the ASUS EEE-PC since they can be mounted right on the dash of a car.

Just search EBay for "ELM327 USB".
