Oh, and thanks for the heads up about the breadboard. I am planning on borrowing a breadboard and getting everything setup, so it is nice to know there may be problems that aren't 100% related to me involved.

I just wanted to put in a word that there's maybe a 75% probability I'd buy that assembled product. I still need to get it straight in my head if this will void my warranty....

Can you install a trailer wiring plug without voiding your warranty? This isn't any mopre difficult than that.

KJsatz: if you're worried about installation of the Guino, why not just buy a plug 'n' play ScanGauge? I assume that if you can make payments on a new car, financial duress isn't the reason. Just curious...

SWEET! I've already bought my second iduino, but I'd buy this in a heartbeat (and use the other two for other tasks, .

I echo most of dcb's statements, but especially USB! Thanks for your work kevin.

A well-crafted argument, Metro. But there's psychology involved. Plus I have a specific place in mind where the MPGuino would fit perfectly but a scangauge would not.

Anyway, very exciting thread. Pre-assembled or as a complete kit with a custom board, either is a great step forward for the project.

^^ Some of those holes on the iDuino are pretty small, but it was the first time I ever really attempted to do precision soldering, and I didn't screw anything up. Just make sure your soldering iron has a good point to it, and take your time! By the end of the iDuino, you will really be getting pretty good at soldering!
