A DIY CanZE dongle, part 2. Geek talk.

We might have ironed out most issues with the DIY dongle. If there are people willing to build an ESP32 based dongle, especially if they own a Q90, R90, or R110 model, we would like to hear about it. Requirements would be:

  • Preferably drive one of the above models.
  • Willing and able to build a dongle, which requires ordering stuff through Aliexpress or ebay HK, basic solderinig skills, and either some basic knowledge of using PlatformIO with Atom (or VSCode) with git, or the abilty to upload binaries to an ESP32 development board from the command line.
  • Fool around with it, and be willing to cycle quickly though different updates of CanZE or the ESP32 code.

    I’m up for it but have a Q210, I have the soldering skills and can upload binaries to an ESP no issue. I might even prefer to build a PCB with a OBD Socket on it rather than have it on a mix of bits.

    Great. Let me know when you have the parts, see previous post on this subject. By then I should have published the connections (just a few wires), and the code should be a bit more stable.

    I have the skills but -at the moment- I don’t have a Zoe. I already owned 2, and want to have the 3. soon…
    So I’m definitely interested.
