I just came across CANdlestick on the Particle forums today, and dug in enough to find my way here.
At first glance, the Carloop looks like a great little package to do some really interesting things.
My first thought is doing a rally computer for navigation car rallies (precision driving with puzzles to find the route; arriving early or late costs major points), and I would need to get some data from the car (speed mainly) and GPS.
My second though was how it could help setting up a performance rally (high speed with one car at a time) car.
My project car is a 2004 Subaru Impreza, which I believe uses ISO 9141-2 instead of ODB2.
I also have a 2010 Subaru Forester and a 2015 RAM1500, which of course do support ODB2.
So, my first question is whether the Carloop hardware could be easily modified to use jumpers or dip switches to switch the Photon CAN Rx/Tx between the ODB2 and the ISO 9141-2?
That directly leads to the second question if there is interest in doing an ISO 9141-2 library?
Finally, is it straight forward to get an order to Canada by ordering directly from your online Store?
(I had to go through buyapi.ca to get my Photon...)
