Here's how my modified ELM327 USB looks like... I used a 2-way ON/ON switch from Conrad Electronics (order nr.: 700978, or direct link). The neat thing about this switch is that it's super small and if you happen to have a bluetooth version of the ELM327 (the el cheapo one, anyway) then you can fit it even nicer on the side. The casing for the bluetooth is identical to the USB version and they've used a plastic cap to cover the hole where the USB cable normally sits. That's a perfect fit for this rocker switch.
Btw. if you own an Android based smartphone and have bluetooth on your mobile computer, just go for the Bluetooth version and try out the Torque app (on Android Market/Play Store). This way you can make even more out of the already cheap device.

Mine now come on at 4c Orange snowflake
Anyone know if the auto heated screens come on with the orange snowflake? I've enabled it but the screens didn't come on when the temp was 3c.

So do mine. Nice feature although sometimes they're not really needed even at those temps. Wonder if the activating temp could be changed somehow.

ive been looking for something like this for a long time, even looked at buying an IDS VCM at one point just to be able to program some of these things. lol
does anybody know how to translate the AS BUILT Data? if so, is there anything in the data regarding the engine fitted to the car?
lol, just asking, because last year I did some extensive research... and I found the Kuga, with the 163ps engine, uses the same GEM module, instrument cluster, as the focus, and the dash wiring also remained unchanged pre and post releasing the 163ps TDCi engine.. only thing which changed was the engine module, and the engine wiring loom... but because the GEM module never changed, or the dash wiring I found it was possible to plug in the newer 163ps PCM and engine wiring loom into the GEM module of a 136ps Kuga.
stumbling point I had was how to then code that new engine to the car... lol
So I assumed it must of been some kind of ASBuilt data thing thing which needed changing as well as the security programming.
if I can find out how, then at some point id love to get that 163ps engine in my focus.
it never came to the mk2.5 facelift focus, but its a vastly improved engine.. injectors are better, fuel system runs at a higher pressure.. better EGR system, its smoother and quieter, also has pre injection.
technically there is no reason why it wont work, other than programming.
the kuga is after all a focus underneath its electrical systems were lifted and remain identical to a mk2.5 focus... its modules are the same even. so if the engine works in a kuga it should also work in a focus.
the other thing im wondering how to get enabled is, i noticed on the 136ps kuga, and 140ps mondeo... the instrument cluster has some kind of oil service warning enabled.. but on the focus it is not... any idea if this is also possible to enable?

Is there anyway to donate to the people that are coming up with this software?
i have tried to donate to them before but they wont accept it.
