Default iPhone App for Megasquirt?

Is there an iPhone app that will hook to megasquirt and display some gauges and maybe do some datalogging? I can't imagine tuning from a phone would be any fun, but it would still be cool to hook it up and monitor stuff.

David Andruczyk - the author of MegaTunix - is working on one.

I've toyed around building UI and some basic stuff in the SDK kit but I don't know enough to make it actually talk to the MS.

Although I hope someone pulls it off. It would be great to be able to just plug the phone in and make simple adjustments instead of breaking out the tuning laptop.

That's unfortunate. I'd really hoped that we'd see development moving in the direction of the Android OS, given the lower cost, higher availability, wider selection, and greater open-ness of that platform.

I'm pretty sure that like all other apps once it's out on iPhone the Android version will follow very quickly.

As much as I hate to admit it Android would probably be much easier to develop something like this for. However the money is still in iOS so it will most likely come first.

I looked into developing an Android app last spring. The biggest problem I found was that the USB built into my droid could not be used to communicate with the MS. You would have to rig up some sort of bluetooth adapter to the MS to communicate. That is about when I decided to give up.

Last year I wrote an Android app to view some gauges and datalog. It just communicates over bluetooth. It was exceptionally easy to write. One of these days I'll put it in the Market.

I thought that you have to get 3rd party devices "certified" to communicate with the iPhone over bluetooth or the connector? Maybe he's going to use wifi.

Phil Tobin is looking into that side for TunerStudio.
