Ok I have a question regarding turbo. I was bored today so I was messing with settings and bench running the car with zero boost and max turbo with .5 delay and 3 ramp. At full throttle it appeared that turbo did not kick in at all. I added about 20 boost and then tried again. This time at full throttle it sounded and looked like turbo kicked in. Why does nothing happen with max turbo and zero boost?

It is there, it is just not as obvious at low timing. The difference in rpm from 0deg to 20 deg is not that big. The difference in rpm from 20deg to 40deg is huge and easy to hear. The difference between 40 and 50 is as big or even more. It is pretty exponential.

With the flood of Android phones soon to come on the market (basically, Linux 2.6.29 kernel), it would really be neat to have a version of Hotwire for Android. Then your phone could be used at the track to update your RS, and no laptop needed! Motorola alone is supposed to come out with over 20 Android phones this year.

You can get adapters. I have a cable that came with 4 different plugs, including mini and micro usb.

Doesn't look like Android phones have USB host capabilities. I'm pretty sure the USB is just a bridge to talk to the RS via serial, so if Android can do serial you might have an avenue there. Does the RS use a PIC?

Since Android is running Linux 2.6.29, I'm sure that it's only a matter of time before the open source community has a USB host driver.

It looks like there's been some efort in that direction already. It's not clear if all the phones have a chip that supports it, or if there's enough documentation available if they do.

Serial would be a simpler route. I've been meaning to sniff what's read/written to the RS to see how complicated it would be to reproduce via serial.

Most of the phones are running a derivative of the Arm® Cortex™ A8 processor , or the Qualcomm Snapdragon (another ARM Cortex A8 core). The Motorola Android development suite is available for free from motorola.com.

Doesn't the tether app work through USB? And it makes a serial connection through the USB to transfer files and sync...should be some way to make a droid based hotwire with that functionality.

It has no problem acting as a USB device, but hosting other USB devices is a different story.

Anyway, it's all beyond the scope of this thread. It seems like the hardware and OS are capable, but the support isn't enabled by default and may require lots of hacking, and then would be specific to certain phones. Once all that's sorted out, you can consider writing an app for it.

Or you can buy a netbook, they're cheaper.
