       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

       -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 initialising.

       -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.
