Dear friends,

Harry's GPS Buddy v16 just arrived on AppStore. Besides it's trip computer features, GPS Buddy is a pretty sophisticated GPS and OBD monitor. It is based on the same GPS engine all my apps use - in it's latest version.

Instead of selling it for 99 cents, I decided to make this version available for free. It serves as a kind of technology demo for my series of GPS / OBD apps. Please note is supports the full list of external sensors now:

GPS Sensors
  • TomTom car kit
  • Dual XGPS150
  • Emprum Ultimate
  • G-Fi
  • and any NMEA wifi sensor

OBD Sensors
  • Kiwi Wifi OBD
  • OBDKey
  • OBDLink
  • goPoint BT1
  • goPoint GL1
  • and any ELM327 based OBD Wifi dongle

Hope you have fun with it!

Here is the link to AppStore: ... d320423931

And please spread the news / link / share / like.

- Harry

Probably to allow volunteers to define and submit vehicle definitions. :-)
Stay tuned.

I just purchased Harry's Lap Timer Gran Prix and a OBDLink LX dongle. I'm having issues activating the dongle from the Grand Prix App. Do I need the GPS buddy installed in my phone also; or the native OBDLink's native app installed in my phone at all? If I understood post 12778 correctly, I don't need any other app other than Harry's Lap Timer for the Lap Timer App to talk properly to the OBD dongle. Is this correct? Thanks.
