    I wanted to see how my Droid 3 phone would work when my GS-911 arrives, so I went ahead and downloaded the verifier application. I had used it once before a couple of years ago with my original Droid.

    Then I remembered I needed a JRE to run it, and picked up netmite, which I had used in the past for this purpose.

    It didn't work. :cry

    Then I discovered that there is a beta version of an Android app available through hexcode.co.za, via their installer software. This runs on the PC, and apparently once a GS-911 is connected to it it will give you links and such to download the various applications.

    Since it's native Android, I expect it will work. I forget whether the site said you need Android 2.0+ or 2.2+, but either is fine in my case.

    Cool, sounds like you are on it. Let me know if you run into any problems. I don't have a Droid, but I understand it needs to be a version 2.0 or newer so it sounds like you are good to go.

    Thanks for your business!

    I have a customer out in the middle of nowhere on a group ride with a warning light on. Of course the rider's manual tells him to check the oil and otherwise "take it to the nearest dealer" . He made the mistake of leaving home without a GS911. :huh

    He just placed his order for a GS911 and is paying for overnight Saturday delivery so he can read out his codes and find out what's going on.

    Thanks to everyone for their support, we've moved a lot of inventory. :clap We will need to end the discount at the end of this month, so that means discounts will apply through September 30 2011.

    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the quick shipping. I got my unit today, and within a few minutes I had everything set up for my Droid3 to talk to it. They're happy with each other, and I expect they'll be even happier when I plug the thing in to the diagnostic port for some data.

    It's nice and compact, and there's no reason I can't take it with me on trips. :thumb

    And it works like a charm.

    I discovered and cleared an O2 sensor fault code, verified that the ABS unit had no complaints, and watched real time data while I idled the engine and fiddled with the throttle and such.

    I am relieved to see that my GPS does in fact under-report the battery voltage, so I don't have some sort of problem there.

    So the 911 will tell you if your battery is on its last leg?

    Not exactly, but it shows the engine computer's idea of the battery voltage, which turns out to be higher than the value my GPS is showing. Since my GPS shows a lower value, I thought that my battery was putting out only about 11.7 volts with the ignition off. It turns out that the system is at about 12.5 volts instead, which is quite healthy.

    Awesome JD, this is truly one of the coolest devices out there IMHO, glad you're having fun with it. It's a very good insurance policy out on the road. :D Don't overlook the Beta download also, it has some cool new features.

    There's a "Plot O2 sensor" button on the Real Time Data page at the top, click on it if you haven't played with it yet and watch the O2 sensor switch voltage on a graph in real time......pretty cool.

    If I order one would it be cheaper to ship to my daughter in AZ or myself in CA for sales tax purposes?

    Shipping is only $10.00 so it would be cheaper to ship it out of state vs. paying sales tax.
