I'm impressed a '97 Honda has an ODBII port - never seen a car that old with one here in the UK (or japanese imports for that matter).

Must admit as cool as that is, an Adroid unit + the Torque app already answers this question. If either of my current 90's projects ('98 and '96 Toyotas which both have Android head units for Spotify etc) had an ODBII, I'd use Torque.

Been required since '96.

My '97 F-150 has it, and I do use it.
$20 USB cable and free software to the laptop/tablet.

This Pi is good for a "project", but Amazon has many of these heads up displays starting at $30.
