Some recent car issues got me looking at various OBD leads/bluetooth adapters out there as I need to clear a light on my dash. 

One of my searches turned up http://www.obdautodoctor.com/ which has both Linux and Android versions available,  This got me to thinking that this could be another cool pandora use.

Seems some of the software out there (bundled with cables on ebay) runs on DOS and some of it wont run on post-XP. Would this be a possibility using dosbox or qemu?

Searching for opensource software for this I came across this list http://www.geekmyride.org/wiki/index.php/Open_Source_OBD_software and openOBD http://sourceforge.net/projects/openobd/

anyone attempted anything like this?

edit: something weird was going on with url tags showing as text

A colleague got torque working on his android (there is a free version, which has enough features unlocked to be useful). And I am interested, but have not much time to spare at the moment. But why not try it yourself, if you have the hardware.

PanQemu has an "other options" tab, where you can add things like "-usb -device usb-host,hostbus=2,hostaddr=3" (not sure if it works, but who knows)

Where 2 and 3 are the numbers that appear:


root# lsusb

Bus 002 Device 003: ID 1234:abcd nameofthethingy
some documentation where it appears:
