Outrageously cool gizmo for your car's OBD<-->smartphone @automatic

Well, that's unfortunate... I went to take a look at the Kickstarter... got this message:

Drive with Dash is the subject of an intellectual property dispute and is currently unavailable.

No need to check the servers — the rest of Kickstarter is doing just fine.

If you are interested in this project, please check back later. Thanks for your patience.

A while back I was using DashCommand in my car with pretty good results. The updates were about 1-2 times per second. I wanted to see smoother updates on things like RPM.

 

I used it a few times to read diagnostics codes and reset my engine check light. Also, my car didin't display gas mileage so I would use it on longer trips to see what type of gas mileage I was getting at any given point in time. Linking to the bluetooth ODB2 transmitter was kind of a PIA because it took about 10-20 seconds to get it set up so it's not the kind of thing I would use around town or on shorter trips. Around town it seemed like it was another thing that could distract me and take my eyes off the road. California is really starting to crack down on smart phone usage in cars these days.

I don't understand why the funding goal was a full $750k. Can anybody tell? This seems way, way too high given the project.
