So I've been searching on here for a while about pocket/data logging with a pocket pc OS (aka windows ce) so that I could use my fast, reliable, and color compaq ipaq for logging and not have to use my palm m100.
I found some stuff while surfin the net and wanted to see what you guys thought.
here is a link to the cable and converter, ElmScan ISO 9141/14230, which according to the site should hook up and work:
I'm sure there are others available, so please post links/reviews!
to get the ipaq to be able to go serial, there are cheap cables on ebay, like the following:
you could then use a serial male male cable to connect it all together since the connection off the ipaq and the elmscan are both female:
now for the software, ie "the most important part",
I found a few sites that were developing pocket pc datalogging stuff, and a lot of them had the software to download for free:
and some that are developed and for sale:
Now I realize the ones for sale are costly, but they sound like high quality logging software from what I read. I could justify spending a little more than what the "pocketlogger" costs, but nothing outrageous.
Anyways, I was wondering what those that have been searching for a pocket pc based logging system thought about this info and if anyone had any input.
I cant afford to buy nor do I need to buy dsmlink, which to my knowledge isnt useable with pocketpc anyways. Again, to reiterate what was previously stated, I am trying to steer away from my palm because I have something better (ipaq) and just personnal preference. Any input or insight is greatly appreciated!
Sorry to talk so much, I just ahve spent a lot of time researching this and wanted to see what some of you guys thought! Thanks!
