Rev App for iPhone on Suzuki motorcycle


Hi there, this is my first post in the forum and forgive me if its off-topic but thats the forum with the most expert people I've found about SDS, ECU, OBD, etc.

My question/idea is to figure out a way of using the Rev iPhone App and with a Suzuki (Hayabusa, GSX-R1000/750, B-King, etc.) motorcycle.

What's the Rev app?

Rev is an application for the iPhone and iPod Touch that monitors, displays, and records real-time vehicle data. By communicating directly with your vehicle's ECU via its OBD-II port, Rev is the first iPhone and iPod touch application to give you complete access to everything you want to know about your vehicle. http://www.devtoaster.com/products/rev/

I have sent an e-mail to the developers of Rev and they replied saying that all I need to use the app with a Suzuki Motorcycle is the hardware for the connection. The problem is that there isn't such hardware.

So, I was wondering if there is a way to make this connection hardware myself by adapting one of the available OBD-II wifi connectors (from PLX, ElmCanII or OBDKey) to the SDS data cable/plug (I have the SDS box and cable).

Furthermore I was taking a look at the ElmCan device and it seems to connect to the OBD-II port through a RS232 interface wich I believe is the same one used in the SDS. Do you guys think it would be compatible right out of the box?

Once again, forgive me if this doesn't make any sense or if it's just plain stupidity. I'm a total noob in this subject. Please disregard any grammar mistake, English is not my first language.

Haven't tried it yet. I was waiting for a reply from someone saying that it might work... but nobody answered yet.
