Beyond OBDII – Small, Dedicated, Aftermarket Onboard Computers

It’s time to let go of the limitation our tiny-screen phones and limited-character dedicated OBDII devices. Imagine pulling into your garage, and when your new onboard aftermarket computer is triggered by proximity to a WiFi node in your garage, the data from your recent outing is sent to your home Mac or PC, and all parameters for the drive are processed into a neat report that may let you know before a code is set that your thermostat is likely getting a little long in the tooth.

The report is emailed to your email account, and arrives at your phone (and your 14-year-old’s phone, because s/he is next in line to your Volvo and wants to ensure you’re treating it right) before you turn the car off.
