Product Description
Connected to your car's Engine Control Module (a mini computer that monitors emissions and runs your engine), the OBD-II port is used by mechanics and dealerships to read fault codes, mass air flow, engine speed and other useful data. So what if you could program it to change the way your car functions, or to detect problems long before your check engine light comes on? Read More

Does this kit still come with a different board for the Bluetooth version (Redbear instead of Particle)?

oddwireParticle actually acquired RedBear Labs, but to answer your question the bluetooth version would come with the RedBear Duo board.

Dear Carloop - I know What contain set for 49,99 USD (carlop Basics with the Particle Photon). when I give you 5 USD additionally , then carloop change me my borad as Particle Photon with bluetootch, but without Wifi. - Do I say right ? What contain set when I add 55 USD , I have Basic set , and bluetootch and 3G modem, or only 3 D modem without Wifi and bluetootch ?

@spicypasta same issue. I got the redbear duo instead of the particle photon.
C'mon massdrop. This is an important detail. It is possible to get code running on the duo but the particle firmware is 2 years out of date and doesn't fully support particle cloud.

Is anyone else having a problem because MassDrop sent this starter kit out with a RedBear Duo rather than a Particle Photon? This is ridiculous and now I'll have to go buy a Photon separately since RedBear is basically a dead project. Thanks MassDrop...

I'm not in the market for this, but it seems to me that having a naked circuit board is risking exposure to dust, groping fingers and other hazards.
If I wanted one, I'd want it to come with some sort of protective cover.

SennapodTeeI understand your concern... However this is a new piece of tech in market for developers... An open-source tech that allows developer to play around with ... a Protective cover would later be designed around it to match it's intended use ... But for now it is just a toy to play around with ... Just like any microcontroller in the market.

GasimmsThis comment highlights my biggest fear about this project. It's 'just a toy' that connects to a 2000 lb machine which is capable of killing both the occupants and innocent bystanders. There is no where near enough safety or thought put into this product. The main photo shows that GND is directly next to CAN-H with no protection -- meaning that it would be dreadfully simple to short out the CAN bus. Cute toy, but the inventors should be held personally responsible for any injury or death resulting from negligent use of this product.

Can you technically tune cars with this? Thinking like R32's, STI's, Evo's, Rx7's etc.

So... most cars don’t have the CAN bus. It has been around for ages, but generally it was only used on expensive vehicles before the late 2000’s.
Many more modern cars use it due to its abilities, but many (including some OBD2 cars) are likewise encrypted to prevent modifications (and with the modifications, the possibility of non-compliance, mechanical damage, etc.).
Chances are good that most will use this almost exclusively as stated... as a customizable ‘wireless’ code scanner.

So, is this of any use to me if my car uses ISO 1941?

skineI think it depends if the programs carloop has will read and decode ISO 1941. Otherwise if you can write or find code that will decode ISO 1941, you can probably code the micro controller to read in data over the ISO 1941 pins which are 7 and 15 I believe? You should also still get data out from OBD2 CAN Bus pins on the OBD2 port.
@Carloop Are only the BUS pins connected to the I/O's of the microcontroller or are other pins as well connected like the ISO 1941-2 and SAE J1850 pins?

Every time I see these drop I think it's a kit for remote car starting.
