Hello im new and looking to learn (On Board Diagnostics) OBD

Tue Sep 11, 2018 2:53 pm

Hello ive just joined as i have a Raspberry Pi in the Nissan Elgrand i have bought. It all works pretty well for Kodi to watch films on the go however apart from that the rest of it is way over my head being used to PC`s and not having to do technical things to make other apps work.

Ive been reading blogs about the ability to use it as on board diagnostics through the OBD port and i thought this would be excellent however way beyond my skill level. Im hoping to learn some more about these and ultimately if i can get an OBD program on there i would be very happy.

This is the blog ive been looking at.

The OP is introducing themselves and what they hope to achieve, not asking a question as far as I can surmise :shock:

*Please* don't try to watch movies while you're driving. Or, if you insist on doing so, please stay out of California.

Add Hawaii and the other 48 to that list. From the model he mentioned, I do not think he is in the States...more likely UK or AU or another...at least I hope so. :D

I think you are taking the comment 'on the go' too literarily.....

Yes, the Nissan Elgrand is huge. It can carry 8 passengers. Perhaps they appreciate some in flight entertainment.

Ha hi folks yes im in the UK and no im not watching it whilst driving are you insane. My Elgrand is the deluxe top of the range version so only the 6 seats however my daughter does like to watch Moana when we are on a long drive. I can actually split the audio to have stereo in the front and she can watch the movies in the rear.

Anyway has anybody had an experience with the question or do i need to put it in a different sub-index?

There is an old adage that you should drive like everyone else on ther road is crazy...because they just might be. Given some of the behavior I've seen on the road, I wouldn't care to bet that there aren't people watching movies while they drive.

Just find a similar Blog / Tutorial which uses Raspbian Stretch as it base and just follow the process, and yes there are many many OBDII posts scattered around this forum, such as:

The raison d'être as I keep stating is Learning and if you mess up it is just a rewrite of the SD Card:

Hi, you should check your vehicle obd2 protocols if its compatible.
I think there's some info that helps https://obdstation.com/obd2-protocols/
