Hi,

Does anyone here know where I can buy a proper OBDII connector and reader for my car. I want to be able to connect it up to my smartphone.

I had my eye on this http://amzn.com/B005NLQAHS - Seems to be a great product 4.5 stars from 4000 reviews. However it does not ship to SA

Any local places where I can buy one of these?

I was actually thinking of developing a desktop app for this the other day.
Not sure where to start though.

I have a similar one (USB) as well as a much better one (Standalone unit)... I might be willing to sell one of the two

If you're in JHB, send me a PM and I'll give you further details

I bought one from DX.com. Works great.
Otherwise if you want faster shipping - try Zastra.com
