Hack my Car – ODB and GPS

2019 April 23

I got myself a ‘ODB-diagnoseger├Ąt’ from China. Of course it didn’t work right away and I had to readz the internets for fixing. First I had to find a suitable driver. USB identifier was: Product ID: 0x7523 Vendor ID: 0x1a86. This looks like a CH340 / CH341 Serial / USB Chip. Luckily I found the drivers here:

Next: get GPS Tracker.

Hope is to find my car, once it got stolen, but so far, it was more of a hack project :). I figured, the best opensource solution you currently get is traccar.org. Here’s how to set it up and dockerize: https://www.traccar.org/docker/
