I read in the OVMS_Development.pdf (git hub) this:
So you've got about 20 seconds after powering the module / reset to send the
magic word. You may send the word as often as you want, the module will
normally respond to it after the first modem init (i.e. after "Call
Ready" / "GPS
Ready"). If it does not, reboot.
Once you're in DIAG mode, enter:
. "HELP" to list available commands (also lists SMS and MSG commands)
. "DIAG" to see a short status overview
. "S command" to execute an SMS command
. "M command" to execute a MSG command
In DIAG mode, all SMS and MSG outputs are sent to the DIAG port instead
GPRS network. MSG output will not be encrypted.
and I thought that it was possible. I don't want the modem but I am not
in electronics and embeded systems. My first thought was to use an
ELM237 to get
data from OBDII but I can not find the PIDs of Twizy and I thought of
using this interface
like I would with ELM. Just send a command via bluetooth and get back a
PS: Thanks again for the support!
