The update sketch added test procedures and support for MPU-9150 9-axis MEMS module available in the new OBD-II I2C Adapter while 6-axis MPU-6050 is also supported with the same MPU9150 Arduino library. OBD library was also update recently. All the latest code and libraries were already committed to Github repository.
New firmware for Freematics OBD-II Emulator is available. In this update, several reported issues have been fixed including the DTC resetting issue. Since the release of BLE version of the emulator, the firmware now has two versions for hardware with and without BLE. For those purchased the BLE version of emulator before the release of our Freematics Emulator iOS app, please update your hardware with the latest firmware with the GUI software in order to use the emulator wirelessly with our iOS app.
Our Freematics Emulator App is now available in App Store, finally! Actually Apple is quite fast on approval of hardware interactive App. The most time was spent on the delivery of the inspection unit from AUS to 1 Infinite Loop. Here are several screenshots of current version of the App. We are going to update it very soon as quite some improvements have been done already while waiting for the approval.
Freematics OBD-II Emulator now ships with optional BLE support for wireless control and configuration via an iPad.
The interface of Mega Logger (the Arduino sketch developed for OBD-II Telematics Kit #3) was just re-organized. Information is displayed in a more logical layout. As next step, touch screen operation will be implemented for switching between different layouts of data display.
The updated code is already in GitHub.
Our Data Charting Service has been experiencing some difficulties for a while. After some server updates and fix-up applied recently, it is now up running again. The Data2KML utility was updated as well. Please make sure to use latest Arduino sketches with your Telematics Kit to do data logging so that the logged data can be parsed and rendered into chart and map correctly.

Freematics OBD-II Emulator will soon integrate Bluetooth Low Energy. That will make it possible for emulator to interact with iPad App. The App is almost a rework of the GUI on PC with more convenient touch control. The development of the App is now almost done and we are going to submit it to App Store. Stay tuned for more updates.
Arduino Telematics Kits are designed to putting up a data logging and monitoring device with OBD-II, GPS and motion sensor data access. This users guide contains information to get start with the kit and the Arduino sketch designed and provided for them.
Freematics was on the stage of Maker Faire for the 4th time. The weekend spent in Powerhouse Museum for Sydney Mini Maker Faire was just as exciting as the previous ones we went for. One slight difference was that some visitors had already heard about us online and some even had purchased our products before. It was good to be face-to-face with users, whether past or potential, and we got lots of good feedback.
