I couldn't get it to work, so I checked back on the website and it looks like only the cable they make or a tactrix cable will work.
Hope that helps!
I got EvoScan v2.2 but can't make it work. Anyone out there have a WRX with a flashed ECU and a tactrix cable and can successfully use EvoScan/STiScan? I want to make some custom gauges for my 7" dash-mounted LCD but can't

It didn't say anything about supporting WBO2s. Am I missing that? Did anyone see it?

Like many out there, I had a hard time finding a download link for EcuExplorer. Most threads link to http://www.tari.co.za/blog/2008/05/ecuexplorer-v3025/ but it appears that site is no longer in use.

Finally found out that Calvin has moved his downloadables to Google Code along with the source. http://code.google.com/p/ecuexplorer/

For those trying to get ecuExplorer to work w/ an 06 like I was, this thread is helpful: http://www.cobbforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36743

I just tried to download both versions: 3.0.25 and 3.0.28
Neither one won't communicate with the ECU
Weird thing: I borrowed the laptop from my buddy, and the same s/w worked there like a charm..
Any suggestions or advices how to get mine to work will be appreciated.
I was trying to follow these instructions, but it didn't work for me..

Also, if I can get it to work somehow, how can I log the knock correction data?
The only thing that I can see here is "Knock signal #1" at the bottom of the screen. However, everybody who share their logs here do have the "knock correction" field.
Thanks.
Anton.

What cable are you using?
Are the problems installation related? Does the laptop detect new hardware when its connected to the subie?

with either laptop, mine or my friends I use the same cable, which was provided along with the AP.
Both laptops detect the new hardware "Cobb Talk 2.0" The windows control panel says that it works properly.
Still, one laptop can communicate with the ECU, and the other cannot.. ((

If you are trying to run it on XP SP2, check post 169 and 166 on this thread:
http://www.cobbforums.com/forums/sho...574#post545574

Mixed success rate, but if you have nothing to lose except some time, give it a shot

I had some success with the following ...let me explain my scenario.

1. Installed the latest version of Accessport Manager
2. I installed the accessTuner Race software
3. Tried to hook up car via accessTuner....
4. An install for Cobb FU or something came up...(I was like WTF?)
4.5 Cannot connect...blah blah
5. Tried ecuExplorer...no luck...could not connect
6. Found the dongle instructions and latest ecuExlorer.exe file via Cobb website. Followed instructions. No luck.
7. Went to Device manager and noticed Cobb FU thing with yellow question mark
8. Reinstalled driver by pointing to the directory for where the dongle instructions/new ecuExplorer.exe were located.
9. Both apps work now...


good luck

Cool Nokia N900 Phone logger with ROMRAIDER

Hi guys,

This post is how I manage to assemble the pieces to make a logger for my car.

I own a Subaru WRX 2002 (US) I wish to be able to see some ecu parameters in a screen in a portable solution.
At first (2006) I wish a Linux carputer with a touchscreen, but the HW was expensive and there were no good OS interface.
I could use a laptop but still too big.
Then I discover Nokia tablets.
I owned a N810 that I manage to connect to the car using an adapter and a Tactrix cable. I used this because I tune the car with RomRaider (http://www.romraider.com).
The problem was that the open sourced program was made in java so it was slow and unresponsive.
Anyway, I fell in love with the tablet, so I sold my N810 to get
the N900 phone.
I almost shot myself when I learned that the N900 does not support USB OTG like the N810.

Then MohammadAG announce the USB host mode (H-E-N Thread)I thought that maybe possible so I installed it ( I already have powerkernel).

So I connect my old adapter and yes it work, except for the drivers to the serial port.
I did some digging and found the drivers were compiled for me and come with the installation of the powerkernel46.
They are not loaded by default, but they are available in /lib/modules/2.6.28.10power46.
I needed usbserial.ko and ftdi_sio.ko ( the Tactrix cable use this chipset).
The modules where added to the kernel using the following commands:

Code:
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.28.10power46/usbserial.ko
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.28.10power46/ftdi_sio.ko
The port was mapped successfully to /dev/ttyUSB0 after you enumerate in H-E-N.



Now the Java on the phone part:

I learned in this thread (Java Thread)
that I could run java applications and installing an official java engine from Sun(Oracle).

With this, the application works, but the logger part failed, because of the lack of the librxtx-java library that connects it to the cable.

Here comes the black magic:
After several failed attempts with the libraries from the RXTX site compiled for arm, the libraries were old so they conflicts with the ones in the N900 like libpthread.so,
it occurs to me that the Debian libraries should work. So I download the librxtx-java deb package from the debian libraries for armel in here (Librxtx lib Debian package) and force it in with:

Code:
dpkg --install --force-all librxtx-java_2.1.7r2-4_armel.deb
The reason I have to force it, is because the we do not the java-runtime installed. Perhaps we could install it from the Debian also instead to avoid the brute force.
For some reason, the package install the file in unexpected directories(/usr/share/lib), so I have to move the .so libraries to /lib.
I also copy the RXTXcomm.jar from the debian installation to the lib folder of the RomRaider program.
After I copy the files I unistall the package to avoid the invalid problems with the apt.

Now, I can connect the cable, enable the port using H-E-N and start the java logger program with:

Code:
java -jar RomRaider.jar -logger
I test it with two parameters(manifold relativ pressure and exhaust gas temperature) and get 7-8 refresh per second, in my phone!
