My brain is a bit fried, so if I am rambling, forgive me.
Now that DHP isn't selling hardware, LS1M is out of busines my hopes for a PocketPC scanner is dead.
That said, I have gathered documentation from AVT and other sources and have started building an open sourced scanner. I want a system that works with laptop/desktop as well as PocketPC platforms, and works with at least the PT hardware, LS1M hardware, and ELM hardware.
A quick look at eBay reveals ELM scanners for $50. Who can beat a $50 scanner that will scan and clear codes, log parameters, and use GM Enhanced codes as well.
I have put the project on Codeplex, along with the source code I have built so far. The existing source code is just some gauges and LED's, nothing to read the PCM with yet. PCM reading is going to be slow because the exact documentation for the older PT hardware is not available, I have had to use different model's documentation and brave the cold to test my theories.

Help is appreciated, and maybe we can get a good looking scanner for
