That's what it's going to do. Logging and code reading/deleting are already done.

As requested here is the current list of required items:

BLE Mini: Link
2 Male and 1 Female (or 2 Female and 1 Male) 4 pin connectors like these: Link
A Micro USB Cable like this (you may already have one laying around though): Link

Also needed:
Soldering iron
Wire stripper
Some solder
Some smaller wire (I'll look at what gauge I used when I get home)
Some sort of enclosure (my newest one uses a gutted flash drive and the fit is perfect, pics will be later).
A usb adapter for you cigarette lighter port (I am currently using a 2 usb port option so I can charge my phone as well).


If this seems like too much to deal with for you, I can make these setups for you. I'm still figuring out a price for pre-made ones. You would either need to mail me your JB4 usb data cable or I would include a new one in the price.

I'm still currently testing the iOS application, but so far everything is working great. I'll post up another video today or tomorrow.

Edit:
Also note that this setup will allow you to switch between the iOS end of the cable and the normal jb4 usb end.

This is coming along very nicely!!

I'm finding the Android app is really slow, and unresponsive. It may be my device, but it's not a good user experience.

Part of the responsiveness issue may be due to dealing with the serial data in the main thread. In my iOS app this is handled in its own background thread so everything is nice and smooth.

Why not use something like this Bluetooth Battery powered serial connector

The user would have to turn it off when not in use but it wouldn't require any significant changes and it would already be prefabbed to work with just about any device. I was thinking about getting this for my windows tablet so I could data log with out having to plug in the USB port.

The iOS devices don't support direct serial over bluetooth. To get serial data transmission, you have to use bluetooth low energy.

Here is an image of the flash drive enclosure I mentioned earlier.

The BLE mini is protected and 3 wires (eventually will be insulated into 1) and a plug come out of the side.

Serial data IS handled using a background thread. It runs very smoothly on my Note 10.1 and Optimus G Pro. Post up in the android app thread about which device you have and what kind of responsiveness problems you're having. Updates to my app will be coming, I just need to get through my final semester of school!

btw, nice job dmac, who knew these cute iOS devices could do this!

So in order to make this as simple as possible, I think I'm going to make the iPhone app free and just add the cost into the hardware. This way you can pay once and be done, or make the modifications yourself and it'll be free. Let me know what you guys think. Also I've ordered a few extra BLE Minis so I can start making some of cables for you guys when they get here. Still determining a price btw, re-evaluating the connectors for the ends, and working on a few new enclosure ideas.

sounds good for me count me in for the hardware. btw is it possible to use the BLE mini to connect to laptop (PC or MAC) instead of USB ? i know there is re-programing there but if it works you will have universal connection and it will be good marketing point for your hardware
also you can contact Terry to see if it possible to make you hardware integrated with JB4 then you can sell through him. bigger market less effort

I apologize if this was already covered, but will the iPhone version have graphing ability?

I mean it can. It won't starting out though that will be a few updates down the road. To start with, it will have a customizable display of gauges, code reading/deletion, and saving log files to be opened with JB4 software (windows or mac).

Eventually I will do an iPad specific version. Just focusing on the iPhone for now.

I'd be down for the iPhone hardware…

Been following the thread and the progression and just wanted to say great job dmac! (Even though I'm not using the Mac version of the interface; still prefer using my windows netbook because lugging around my MacBook Pro is too cumbersome because if the size and weight difference lol)

Dmac question for you in regards to the iPhone App. How do you plan on having the iPhone save logs? Will it be within the app or somewhere within the iOS? Would be nice to be able to email it to oneself once saved so I can look at it on my netbook. Also would be nice to have for the app to have graphing capabilities so one can review logs on the fly instead of having to connect a netbook or computer.

Again, great job on the progression of both the Mac version of the interface as well as the work on the hardware and app for iOS devices. From the community, just wanted to say thanks for taking on the project! I'm sure many of us Mac and iOS greatly appreciate it. It's always been "talked" about but never followed through like it is.

Logs will be saved to the app's Documents directory so you can access them through iTunes. I will also have an email option if you don't have a computer handy. The graphing will come along down the road a bit.

Thanks, hopefully I can start getting a few of these devices out there soon.

Update:
I've decided on the final connectors (1/8th inch stereo jacks). I bought some molding plastic so hopefully I can make some kind of enclosure that fits nicely.

Pics of the new connectors. Note: the power goes directly into the chip now rather than dealing with the onboard usb port.

I really need some kind of an idea what you all want out of a display page. Like draw something up or be detailed in a description. What I have currently is pretty basic...
