      What is this for? New technology to me. I assume it allows you to take some type of readings since you are accessing the On Board Diagnostic link.

        Its like having a dashhawk or OBDII scanner tool but it works thru your iphone via wifi signal. Also if you have PLX gauges in your car for boost, AFR, Temps etc... there going to release a connector that will allow you to plug into the sensor modules in the car. For me this will be a plus because while I love the PLX gauges having them on the A-pillar is a PIA at the track.

        If you have an I-pod touch or if you have an I-phone you can place your Boost, Temp any any other gauge setup in a wireless setup in your car which means several really cool things can happen.

        1) You can mount it just about anywhere.

        2) If you were at the track you could have an instructor watch your throttle position giving you better instructions.

        3) It might be possible to have friend sit on the sideline of the track as you go by and grab the signal wireless style.

        4) If you have the I-phone with GPS you could get track data

        5) + Have the phone so you can say Yo to your mama while being cool @ the track.

        Really cool stuff

            where's the receptacle ?

            Sorry to be asking the most basic question, but where is the OBDII socket in a S2k (2005) ?
            I have the Svc Manual, but couldn't find where to plug in to.

                    cheap alternative - if you lower your requirements

                    PLX Kiwi has a very small device that plugs into the OBDII port directly (no WiFi transponder needed) that measures MPG, afew engine parameters and receives/resets fault codes. If you're willing to settle for just those parameters, Amazon will sell it for $85 after May 28:



                    PLX Kiwi indicates that it's immediately available (and a few $ more). Their site has a full description w/ video.

                    I'm reserving my iPod for music (thru Honda radio) since I've installed the USA SPEC interface unit.

                    Btw, i've located the OBDII port, thank you Kevos2k.

                          Wow. I need to get one. Does the app for the phone cost anything? Or do they just assume that you can't use it without the OBD2 dongle and let you have the app for free?

                                Does the Rev software have some kind of lap timing feature?

                                  It can map out a track with the 3G GPS, but it doesn't directly have a timer built into the software. It's a great all around tool that does a little of everything.

                                    Just got my PLX Kiwi in today. I was able to reset my HFC CEL with it without getting out of my car. One question. I'm at work, so I only had to check it at idle. Does the MPG calculations work on the S2000? It didn't seem to do anything and said not supported by my vehicle. But then again, I was not moving when I tried it.

                                      I went for a test drive. I'm a little disappointed that the fuel calculations and MAF are not available. Every thing else works fine.

                                        Fuel MPG has to be built into the Car to have it show the data in the metrics.

                                        Funny I have got that same CEL in my car lately, I have looked up and down the car and cant figure why this is happing.
