Is there any diagnostics software that can be installed on a laptop? If you remember in The Fast and The Furious, dude was running the software that screamed "DANGER TO MANIFOLD". Well, I guess I'm looking for something like that?

Basically I'm running a laptop for business purposes in the MS3 and figured, why pick-up a Dashhawk, when I could get the same thing on a lappy.

I found this: www.digimoto.com However, I don't think it will monitor boost, which is something I'd like to see. Any suggestions?

an all in 1 carputer equiped with full digital gauges + navi + internet + music + dvd all under the glov hooked up to the stock navi screen.
but havn't yet due to lack of funds n know how, especially since i'm not the best wen it comes to electronics
let me know if it helps n if u do decide to do pls do a good write up so i can follow :p

Wow, Magden is an amazing interface, but VERY PRICEY!!

I've found a lot of free software, such as:

DashCommand


Car Diagnostics Center 2009 - (I downloaded the English version)


OBD-DIAG - This looks the best of them all.




This has a lot of links to possibilities - http://www.obd2allinone.com/sc/pages.asp?pageid=60

Of course, I have yet to found what all is needed & if any work with a MS3...
