    I'm new to this so don't mind the newb question, but how would one go about hooking up to the ECU to get this info? They don't come from the factory with e USB connection do they?

    basically need an ftdi cable with the tx,rx and ground hooked to the cars diagnostic connector. probably need an otg cable for your phone/tablet. get with rob lloyd - he can set you up with a boostbutton cable, etc. So diagnostic port -> ftdi cable -> otg cable -> tablet/phone. fire up the app, define your layouts and vehicle profiles and start logging!

    If It's a Samsung you will be ok. Processor speed doesn't mean as much with these tablets and phones as it does with computers, The limitation with cheap tablets is the low resolution display. Some of the $50 tablets only have an 800x480 screen where most any name brand tablet has a 720p or better screen.

    Just make sure it supports USB OTG (On-The-Go). If it has Android 4 or greater, chances are it does. My old phone originally came with Android 2.3 and didn't support USB OTG. But, I installed a custom Android 4.4 ROM and now it does...

    when you say load the software are you still trying to install the apk or are you actually clicking on the mpscandroid icon and running it? what info are you getting when you say it fails?

    Do you have sideloading enabled? Sounds like no...

    What version of Android do you have?

    On mine, it's under 'Settings', 'security', 'Unknown Sources - Allow installation of apps from unknown sources'. Check that box, and you should be able to install the .apk.

    I don't know how to check to OTG without an app. I don't think the OS has anything to tell you. You could check your manufacturer's online docs.

    +1 to what rob said. from a software point of view 3.1+ android o/s should work. from a hardware point of view typically when you have the otg cable plugged in and you add, say, a flash drive then a screen usually pops up. if not you should download an app like usb host diagnostics or usb otg checker to do the checking for sure. they are not 100% accurate but usually work.

    Re: MPScanDroid

    This is almost too awesome to believe!

    I would recommend a few things here:

    -picture of whatever cabling or adapters are required to connect your android phone to the ECU (almost nobody knows what FTDI or otg cables are)
    -link to where these adapters can be bought
    -a simple diagram showing how the connection is made, what all the pieces are called, and how much they cost
    -a screenshot of the program running
    -something describing how it may be possible to have a bluetooth link so that no cabling is required. i.e. bring the phone into the car, bluetooth link sets up automatically without any action on your part except opening the app. now THAT would be BITTTTCCHENNN

    Re: MPScanDroid

    I was using a Bluetooth adapter with the windows version a couple year ago. Worked alright, but not near as fast as the USB setup. Don't think the current version works with Bluetooth. Need to relook at it.as far as the droid version I'll break out the Bluetooth adapter later this year and see if I can get it to work.basically instead of buying the ftdi cable you buy the roving networks Bluetooth adapter.
