Got it today! Has some real good stuff in it James. It is over 50mb though, so just use wi-fi to download it. I only took a quick peek at work, will look more closely and give some feedback over the weekend.

Good job James and thanks!

Will the app perform maintenance duties for its owners, or are we not that advanced yet? :D

Thanks for sharing, Brad. I was wondering if there was a link to this for the Google Play store. Looks like it's just fuse/relay charts. Is this accurate? Price may be a bit steep if that is so.

Yea, nothing for the other phone OS's as of yet. We are discussing how to get there or if there is enough demand to go there. This stuff is not cheap to develop for sure...

You guys will still have to do your own maintenance, but there is a lot of cool info. More to come.

It is a BIG FILE to download because it has LOTS of cool pics. The nice thing is that it is ALL ON YOUR PHONE so you don't ever have to burn up your data usage with this app.

Cool app!

I'd like to update this app for the S2 cars, there is much missing.

What is missing on S2 cars??? Enlighten me... The S2 cars are 84, 85, 86 EURO and if you look under Model Year you will find the entry for each and the specifics about them. Yes, we can only discuss so much in an app such as this so I don't mention the dual dist specifically but I think there is actually a pic of that in the "engine pics" area... Though it might be hard to tell from the pics.

We need constructive feedback though so we can update accordingly though so tell me what you would like to see guys!

That '90 sure looks familiar... ;)

Initial item for improvement:

Fuse charts - Too small to read in portrait mode on my 4s, doesn't support landscape mode to increase size. Need to be able to zoom in on the chart to be useful.

J-Rod, thanks for the pic bro! It looks GOOD!!!

Yes, we have several things to improve. If anyone has or can scan a better shot of the fuse chart that would be awesome and yes, we need to do some stuff to support Landscape mode and such.

Hope some folks find it useful and enjoy it...

James - when using the iPad the fuse chart sizes nicely by expanding and stays sharp. So I assume in a pinch you could size it on the phone as well.

2nd - maybe add torque numbers in the model years pages? At least I do not see one in the 83 US page.

Otherwise still exploring it... Thanks James I like it.

Yes, I did forget the Tq numbers didn't I?! DOH! I thought I had them on there. They must not have been in the same place as all the other numbers and it just went right out of my brain to add them. I tried to stick with factory numbers for performance btw, so if you see a blank somewhere it is because the factory didn't list that value and I didn't want to start mixing stats...

I will get Tq values in the first upgrade which should be coming in the next month or two.

Keep checking it out guys and let me know. If you have not tried the Road Side Assistance part of the app yet you are in for a real treat!!! Should help those who travel! In fact it was Stan's RSA program that made me think of doing the App in the first place. I never had an unlimited data plan and wished there was some way I could just have all this on my phone on a map so I could see who was closest to me while traveling. You will need a Password to use it for the volunteer members, but there are also a bunch of commercial shops that are not locked...or at least that is the plan for how it should work. That way ONLY 928OC members have access to the 928OC RSA volunteers contact info!!! YEA!

Nice app James. I like the assistance part, but it does show Adam living next door to me, which he doesn't. I'm guessing his postal code is miss-entered.

Thanks Martin. I'll check that out. I can't tell you how much work went in to this. And the RAP (RSA...which one should it be guys??? Roadside Assistance Program, or Road Side Assistance program??? LOL) was particularly time intensive to create. All kinds of crazy stuff we had to do.

For me the point was to have all the little tidbits of info that we often forget and want to look up real quick right on hand w/o having to sign on to any internet sites or anything else. All right there at your finger tips.

I think it is particularly great reading for those new to the 928's or those looking to get in to 928's. It also has that PPI checklist that you can fill out and email... Pretty cool for those guys who are willing to look at and evaluate cars for others! They can look at the car, fill out the info on the app and immediately mail it to the person who is having them look at the car! It is not the most intensive of PPI's but it is pretty solid and a great starting place and guide!

Anyway, if it helps a few folks out that will be great... Just another 928 project that I have wanted to do that I can check off the list.
