I was able to succesfully run my windows program and monitor a few of the cars vitals; speed, autonomy (range), rpm, soc and odometer. This means I'm definitely reading data from the obdII port and I can confirm it with my instrumentation. Next, I need to work out some issues with reading the data from my FTDI USB cable, not a big deal but something I noticed last night while testing the system.
Then I can move into creating a workable interface. The image here is just a quick layout so I can test the FTDI capabilities. Thanks Gary, Priusfan, lincomatic and anyone else that I failed to mention that helped me with examples and advice. After I get this program a little further along the development path, I'll make it available to the forum here to use as you see fit.
