It is possible to data log on a laptop without the xcal. There are several OBD II programs that support multiple protocols and are capable of it. But I dunno of any that are capable of tuning on the Foci, so thats where the xcal comes into play. Maybe someone with more experience will pop in and give a little more detail for ya. Later -Jeremy-
