Hey Chris, I am pretty much all set to rock-n-roll with OpenXC except for the hardware interface. I already have several Arduinos, but it looks like the chipKIT Max32 board is PIC based whereas Arduino has the Atmel chip. Is the extra performance really necessary or could I get by in the short-term with an Arduino Mega?

See you on the OpenXC Google Group.
