Question iPad and OBD info

I was just wondering if anyone knows of a solution for the iPad to monitor our vehicles diagnostics. I think it would be fantastic if I can plug my iPad into the OBD (or wireless) and monitor transmission temps, oil temp, etc. Having all this information in one place and on a nice platform seems so appealing. I have seen some mounting kits for the iPad as well so it makes sense that this would be available. Linking the iPad to a nice GPS would make it even better for the trail (or having GPS capabilities from the iPad). Anyone have info on this? Or, is anyone willing to desing this?

Rev is okay, but in between Jeeps I bought and built a tubo'd vehicle. I am past that so boost, fuel pressure, and RPM/s don't mean as much on a Jeep...a stock NA jeep that is.

We might have to wait and see what the Android Tablet has in store for us... :-(

They sell ODB plugs with USB or serial at the other end...
My friend has one in his Mitsubishi Eclipse...

I roll with my Dell Mini all the time on the dash for Google Earth GPS capability, and having diagnostic data in there would be really cool...

Cross posted, but oh well, I see this advertised all the time, and I saw someone on another forum got a plug-in bluetooth device off ebay for like $40, same exact concept though. Just look around for it. There are apps for both iphone / ipad and android devices.
