> Part one: What is OVMS?
> - One of us, I'm suggesting Mark, should do a practical overview of OVMS, what

> Ideally, some screen shots and/or live demonstrations would be good.  It's
> also really important to tell people how it differs from OEM's telematics, and
> how/why people may want to use it instead of them.
> Part two: How do I get OVMS?
> - Basic walkthrough on how to get hold of OVMS kit, along with 'what you'll
> need' for each main car. Talk about the various websites you can visit to buy
> the hardware, and recommendations for SIM cards.  It's important in this
> section to differentiate between those who want to develop/write for OVMS, and
> those who just want to plug in and forget.
> Part three: How do I set it up?
> -- This should be a walk through from downloading the iOS and/or Android apps
> to plugging the final setup into the car's ODBII port.
> Perhaps we could split this into further sections:
> * What will you need
> * 
> * How to open up the kit
> * 
> * How to put the SIM card in
> * 
> * First connection
> * 
> * etc etc. 
> Part Four: Using and understanding the app.
> Since this is partly different for each vehicle, we'd benefit from having some
> Tesla, Twizy and Volt specific sections here. But open to thoughts.
> Part Five: Questions
> We can either have a formal Q&A at the end of the hangout, or we could answer
> them throughout. My aim is to only allow those who have already volunteered
> (and those who have extra stuff to add now) in on the actually video side of
> the hangout. Everyone else will be able to watch.
> If we meet on Saturday ten minutes before the hangout is due to start, this
> should all be possible without too many problems. I will of course, need
> everyone's google ID so I can invite them in.
