Default I will pay $5

to the first person who delivers to me an MS-tuning application that will run on any common Android tablet, and includes both realtime autotune (ala TunerStudio) and log-viewing.

Phil Tobin is working on Android support. I suspect he'll charge more than $5.

Will you be paying $5 on top of the software cost?

also, what is your interface? as far as I'm aware, usb on android is used only as a device, not a host. bluetooth?

These guys figured out how to make it act like a host.

Haha, I'll give you an android logging app for $5, but it'll be a pain in the *** to write an entire tuning application. You're gonna have to wait on Phil for that one.

That would be the ideal solution.

There are numerous devices out there which plug into a standard DTE RS232 connection and then appear as a virtual UART to the host. I've no idea what the state of drivers is for these devices under Android, but we can't be the first people on earth who have thought it would be handy to use a tablet to communicate with a legacy serial device.

No idea for android, but I've used 2 different BT > serial adapters (one expensive, the other the cheapest one on ebay) with Win7, and both seemed to work fine for all things MegaSquirt. More testing is in order before it gets a full rubber stamp though.

No need for "drivers" under android... the functionality is built into android 2.0 and above. The bluetooth communication is the easy part. The difficult part is supporting every feature for every megasquirt version. You'd basically need to be able to read in megatune/tunerstudio ini's... which would be a headache. It look me maybe one or two days to write a logging app, but I would expect it to take months to write a full-fledged tuning app. Fortunately, Phil wrote TunerStudio in java, which means that he'll be able to reuse some code.

Yeah, the one I use works fine too, but it's limited to about 9hz.

Justin made me some test software to try with my bluetooth-serial adapter and I think I tried it once and it didn't work but we never got back into it. It was probably too cold or too hot or too rainy.

bluetooth-serial adapter works fine with my OBDII reader though.

You were the guinea pig for ms2 support, and I don't think I had an ms2 at the time. But I think the second version of the file I sent you works.

Natively?

I've seen some situations where folks used cloud-type apps (eg: VMWare View), but would that not require a connection to a server?

Not really, they just need to support the features I use on my specific MS implementation. Everyone else can come up with their own $5.

If its virtual can I still get $2.50? ;-)

There are a few ways to run non iOS on iPads. Apparently you can run android on some of the Apple devices, not that I'd recommend doing so.

The crushing success of the Apple tablets brings lots of egghead attention it seems.

I mean…90% Market Share

It didn't work because I wrote it for an MS-I, then completely blindly ported it to MS-II with no way to test. Then I sent it to you, and you said it didn't work. So I quickly built an MS-II and fixed the app. Then I sent you the update and I never heard back. IIRC the MS-II and MS-III protocols are the same, so it shouldn't have made a difference.
