Hello All,

I have built a LattePanda CarPC that I intend to use for datalogging and flash tuning my car with.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pmv6SyGUg3g

I've had the unit working well already with a power adaptor to the ciggarette light socket but for proper power on/off i have purchased a DCDC-USB. Intelligent buck-boost DC-DC converter with USB interface.

Has a large Input voltage range (6-34V) and Programmable Output range (5-24V)
Applications: power for motherboards with single rail power from any voltage to any voltage, laptops, custom electronics with buck-boost DC-DC
Programmable via USB interface
Sends ON/OFF pulse to motherboard
4 modes of operation: DUMB, Automotive, Script or UPS

This allows me to configure Power On/Off timers that are ignition sensed.
This means i don't have to worry as much about data corruption from power on/off via the car key.

Right now i am working on loading the new BIOS to the LP and so to not require power on/off from the LP power button. Once that is done then i need to wired up the DCDC-USB device to a 12volt power line that is always active and then wire up to ignition wiring for the trigger.

Nice you have OBD2 to get the data from. We are limited to an old Subaru OBD1 with minimal data and a funky interface. However we still plan to get as much info out as we can. Currently we are running Win10 with a DriveLine Front end. https://driveline.boards.net/

The buttons replicate touch screen controls and run on an Arduino script.
