As part of obdgpslogger [the winner of the plugcomputer competition], I wanted a plugcomputer living in my car; powering on when the car powers on, logging data, and powering off when the ignition is cut.

Reading it now. Thanks for doing a write-up. I eventually plan to run my plug off a solar charged 12v battery.. Smiley
