Its been a long time coming but it looks like Carman, the excellent car OBD-II analyzer for the Maemo platform (from the makers of Canola) is finally being developed again. After 4 months of no messages to the Carman commits mailing list this little gem appeared:
+ * Added support for new Maemo OS2008 (N8xx)
I for one can’t wait until the team at Open Bossa integrate Carman, Canola and navigation into one package. From their demonstration at the Brazilian car exposition it seems that this is a proof of concept at somebodies desk already.
