I'm definitely getting power on the OVMS -> OBDII cable. 11 volts when the
car is off, and 12.6 volts when the car is on. I'm assuming this is quite
deliberate. (And like 0.2 volts when the power to the ext12v is off).
By default, the HUD was needing (according to docs - probably) 13.2v to
trigger it to turn on.. so I connected it directly to the car OBD and
changed that setting to 11.5 volts.
When I turned the car off (still connected directly).. the HUD remained on
as it was still getting > 12V.. so the setting definitely worked.
Unfortunately when I then connected the OVMS to the OBDII and the OVMS ->
OBDII cable to the HUD - it still didn't turn on. :( (oh and yes - "power
Any thoughts on this would be welcome.

> 7 *ISO9141 K Line*
> 14 CAN Low
> 15 *ISO9141 L Line*
