I neither have the wiring ability or programming knowledge to do this. I would so pay for this!

Very nice project! I wish you had a 2013 so I could convince you the need to interface an HDMI and USB Touchscreen port to the Mylink screen so you can build a light better navcom using Android, Apple, or a Windows PC. It looks like you have those skills.

I wish Apple wasn't so restrictive on their operating systems. Any idea how a person can go around Apple and get a program to work on the iPhone?

Just to be clear on your transistors, you used TIP102, correct? I may have over looked this as well but would care to throw together a parts list for this project?

Thewall279 are you going to do something that is just plug and play and if so let me know I want one.

I have some questions...

1. What wires are you tapping into the OBD connector?

2. Why use transistors when you can use a set of relays that work off of 5v and can handle 12v?

Anybody else have any other features that they'd like to see in a project like this? And remember, try to keep it somewhat reasonably possible.

1. Remote Start
2. Lock/Unlock
3. Different functions with RGB lights

Not trying to sound smart or anything but have you checked out the OnStar App? It already can lock/unlock and remote start, I'm assuming one would need an active subscription to OnStar tho. If you haven't already checked it out.

Hey, someone else into electronics and Arduino! I'm currently working on a system for my Camaro as well. I'm integrating my own touch screen though. I'm not big on having to connect my phone to do stuff. There is an inherent simplicity in a stand-alone system. My system is still in the design/prototyping phases though. But back to your build. It's pretty sweet man. She is a NAUGHTY girl. lol. I'm curious about tapping in to the OBDII. Is that a serial communication? Also, I read somewhere that there can be interference issues with multiple devices using the port at the same time. Have you run into any issues with this?

Wow guys sorry I disappeared for a minute there... I have been working on a few changes to upload the code to github... I used Eclipse to write the applications for android but I now use and LOVE intelliJ so I dont want this to be IDE specific...

I'll be adding the code to these three Repos...
https://github.com/aV1rus/arduino_connect_main.git
https://github.com/aV1rus/arduino_co...ndroid_usb.git
https://github.com/aV1rus/arduino_co...ndroid_blu.git

There is NO code pushed to the repo yet.. Give me a few days. I'll update when the code is uploaded and ready for you guys...

Whoever wants access to the repo's (To be able to edit them and commit modifications) send me your public keys at av1rusapps@gmail.com.
(Hopefully you guys have experience with Version Control and Git and all that)... Source tree is a great GUI for GIT

Yeh I was thinking about adding an unlock feature to the app and remote start and all that jazz but haven't really gotten to serious because of security. The only nice thing is that i wouldn't have to pay onstar a month fee...

You might want to check out my code then... I actually agree that I dont wan to have to interface with my android (Which is why i now have the android inside the car via usb as well) but when i first started i added a second arduino to Serial2 connection on the arduino.. This allowed me to have a arduino dedicated to the display(Which could be touchscreen)...

I am connecting OBD to a Serial UART adapter(https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9555). I have absolutely NO issues interfacing with it and I have my bluetooth OBDII plugged in all the time for other android apps... Actually, the OBDII connection is probably the most reliable...

1) Here: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10087 You will find a pin description table explainign how the cable is wired... Instead of buying that cable I just bought a DB9 connection and wired it to the back of the OBDII plug...
2) relays are true or false... Relays would not allow the fading of the LED's... Basically they will only be on or off mine can be on and i can set the brightness as well...

Everyone is telling me to do this but i don't see how it's possible... There are ALOT of different components. Also, I have had some issues with the circuit board I soldered... So far I've had to take it apart twice to fix the solder... I wouldn't want to send you a plug and play and you end up with the same issue...

If anyone knows where I could get something professionally soldered than the plug and play might be doable. The casing for the circuit board will also need to be water proof...

Plus I work and go to school full time so I don't have much time.

Very impressive, I just have two questions.

Can this be done with OEM halos???
and which Arduino is the best one to use for this project?

I believe a DIY would be possible in the future but that's a long way off as you would need more of a "finished" product to make any finalizations. But for now there's way too many different directions that you can go as far as wiring it since there are still so many different possibilities.
