Porsche-gate: Android Auto isn't slurping tons of engine data, claims Google – but questions remain


"but you are unlikely to upload all the data to a central database"

To actually use the ODB-II dongle, you need an app. Have you looked in the app stores how many of such apps are popular there? There are a few with *many* installs. And by that I mean several hundred thousands.

Plenty of means to create that database, I'd say!
