DIY Smartphone Interface For Older Cars

Stuff like this really makes you wonder why no one has come up with this idea before.

After scanning your car's onboard computers, the little black box pairs with your smart phone and offers a choice of key fob designs on the screen. Choose the one that most resembles your car's original fob, and you're ready to go. Essentially, the smartphone app replaces all of the functions of your fob. Honk the panic button, open the doors, remote start, etc. Using the OBDII connection, Delphi's gadget can also be used as an error code scanner.
