       obdgpslogger - Log OBD and GPS data to sqlite


       obdgpslogger [ options ]


       This is a tool to log OBDII and GPS data to an sqlite database


       -s|--serial <serialport>
              Open this serial port device to connect to the elm327 device.

       -c|--count <count>
              Take this many samples at most. Leaving this option out defaults
              to incessant sampling.

       -u|--output-log <filename>
              Redirect stdout and stderr to this file

       -l|--serial-log <filename>
              Log all serial comms into this file.

       -a|--samplerate <samples-per-second>
              Sample at most this many times a second. The software will sleep
              temporarily at the end of each loop if appropriate. Keep in mind
              there is an upper limit to samplerate, typically capped  by  I/O
              on  your  serial  port.  Set  this  to zero to sample as fast as
              possible.  BE WARNED. Values greater than ten here are forbidden
              for  cars  predating April 2002. If you think your car postdates
              early 2002, and you'd like to sample as fast as possible, the -o
              option may help

              Enable  certain  elm327  optimisations. This will [usually] make
              sampling faster [not a noticeable amount if you're only sampling
              once a second], but makes it much easier to accidentally disobey
              the standard if you're sampling as fast as possible.

              Dump the commands your OBD device claims to support  to  stdout,
              then exit.

              Convert  the  program  to a background daemon after successfully

       -B|--modifybaud [rate]
              Attempt to upgrade baudrate to rate. If  rate  isn't  specified,
              we'll just take a few guesses and go with what works.

       -b|--baud <rate>
              Attempt  to  set  serial  port baudrate to this after launching.
              Passing zero tells it to  try  and  guess,  or  -1  to  not  try
              changing at all.

       -d|--db <database>
              Open  this database to log data to. The software will create the
              database if it does not exist, and create the tables it needs.

       -i|--log-columns <column names>
              Comma-separated list of column names. These are the short  names
              listed when you use "-p" to get your car's capabilities

              Print out version number and exit.

              Print out help and exit.


       These  options  are  not  intended  to  be  used by end users using the
       command line, they are support options for the GUI  component.  Use  or
       rely on them at your own peril.

              Write  all  readings to stdout. The format is unlikely to change
              in practice, but if you choose to try to parse this yourself,  I
              don't want to hear about it when it does change.
