Just saw a post from JimmyH for the OBD2 cable for the iPhone and wanted to post up some options that I have.

First off; PLX Kiwi Wifi

http://www.plxdevices.com/products/fuelsaving/kiwi_wifi.png

This little guy plugs into your OBD2 scan port and emits a wireless signal that is picked up by your iPhone. Just click on settings on your iPhone then select Wi-Fi and it will show up as "PLX Devices"

Once you get that far, you can download one of three programs listed here on PLX's site:

http://www.plxkiwi.com/kiwiwifi/software.html

Rev - 39.99
Dash Command - 29.99
FuzzyCar - Free

All will check your check engine lights and supported sensors, however Rev and DashCommand offer much more "neater" things.

With the DashCommand application you can save the logged information and open it up in PLX Logger on your laptop and view the information in a more magical way ;)

Next program/hardware that is similar is the AEM X-WiFi which allows you to log and display Wideband Air fuels.

AEM X-WiFi Link: http://www.aemelectronics.com/x-wifi-wideband-uego-and-egt-wireless-gauge-controller-1158.html

It can monitor EGT's as well and transmit them to a laptop.

If you guys are interested I can get some initial sale pricing going for the first couple people!
