Today we dispatched our 2,000th shipment. It has been just 2 years for Freematics to grow from a hobby project about OBD-II and Arduino exhibited on a stall at Maker Faire to a series of products shipped worldwide on daily basis. A big thank you to all our customers around the globe for your trust! It just feels so good to create something that is needed by many people. The most exciting thing is not about the past but about the new ideas we have on our new products. Just can’t stop moving forward!
As you may or may not know, we are working intensively on the next generation of Freematics Vehicle Data Logger.
Here comes the spec for the next generation of Freematics Vehicle Data Logger which is under intensive development.
- Directly plugged in and powered from OBD-II port
- Rapid access (up to 100 readouts per second) to OBD-II PIDs (including VIN & DTC)
- microSD seat for data storage up to 32GB
- MPU-6050 6-axis MEMS module for measuring lateral G-force
- Voltmeter for measuring battery voltage
- BLE module for wireless data communication with iOS and Android devices
- Micro USB port for live data access and history data downloading
- Firmware upgradable via BLE and USB
- SIM800 GSM module (micro SIM required) with GSM location support
- 10Hz U-Blox G7020 GPS module (external)
- Arduino compatible (ATMega328p as controller, Arduino libraries available for accessing all components)
- Dimensions: 60x48x20mm
This new Arduino sketch is designed for testing out OBD-II Adapter (both model A and model B) and benchmarking the data access speed of OBD-II and MEMS sensor. It works with our OBD-II Telematics Kit #2 and #3 as well as an Arduino board stacked with any of the color LCD shields available in our online store.

A critical bug in the firmware of Freematics OBD-II Emulator MK2 (J1850 supported version) has just been fixed. This bug will cause the emulator to hang after the PID 010B is polled. This is a bug caused by a typo but seriously affects the stability of the emulator. It is strongly recommended all customers owning the hardware perform a firmware upgrade. Non-J1850-capable emulators are not affected. The latest firmware is distributed with the latest GUI software package.
We are truly sorry for this!
