Bringing OBD-II vehicle data logger to next level

We are working intensively on the next generation of Freematics ONE (namely Freematics ONE+) with Espressif ESP32 as main controller which boosts the device with 240Mhz dual core processing power, 520KB RAM, 16MB flash as well as WIFI and BLE connectivity. 2G and 3G modules are still plug-in as xBee module. There will be integrated GPS receiver while the socket for external GPS receiver is still kept and can be programmatically configured for generic digital/analog I/O as well. This will truly make the vehicle data logger the Swiss army knife for vehicle telematics project. Stay tuned!

MegaLoggerHD is released

MegaLoggerHD is a reworked version of MegaLogger which targets at the new Telematics Shield with 3.5″ LCD of 480×320 resolution designed for our OBD-II Telematics Advanced Kit. It supports both Freematics OBD-II I2C Adapter and UART Adapter V2 (by switching in config.h). The code has just been committed to github. This is the initial revision. Subsequent improvements will be followed.
