Looks like Amazon.ca has pulled the plug on the Le Pan TC:

[INDENT]Item Under Review

While this item is available from other marketplace sellers on this page, it is not currently offered by Amazon.ca because customers have told us there may be something wrong with our inventory of the item, the way we are shipping it, or the way it's described here. (Thanks for the tip!)

We're working to fix the problem as quickly as possible.[/INDENT]
It happened before on that very same tablet, people can't locate the accessories (USB charger?) so they contact amazon and complain (amazon put a hold on the item till they pull few units and check the accessories are there).

Thanks for mentioning Torque in this thread. Just ordered a bluetooth OBD2 connector from ebay.

On another note, here is my current battery life. Display on time here is 4 hours 38 mins. :lol:

This is a nice OBD2 Bluetooth Scanner that does the new SW CAN and MS CAN protocols:

I ordered since the price dropped plus I had a $15 gift card that came with my new Amazon.ca visa card....so $80 p/t.

Some questions for anyone, but particularly aasoror and anyone who recently got the Le Pan from amazon.ca:

Is the latest firmware installed (47xx). Does it solve the freezing issue (and/or other issues)?
Has Le Pan fixed the on button problem (since it has been reported since 2011)? If not, is the advice to be gentle with the button?
I've looked at the long (and to me not totally clear) original post link to "rooting"...are there clearer, simpler instructions somewhere?
Aasoror (my hero)...you've championed this...so why haven't you bought it? (P.S., still using my modded PBO based on your thread).

Thanks.

I need a budget tablet, and I noticed the Le Pan II is at $159 right now, which is apparently the best price it's ever been.

I grabbed it and the HDMI out cable with 1 day shipping on the tablet (using my Prime free trial) for $191 all in.

Scratch that, the Le Pan II just jumped up $60 in price ($219 now.)

Coincidentally the sale ended when it struck Midnight on April 1st... Must have been a monthly sale?

The ipad-I covers fits the lepan like a glove, I don't expect you would have any issues with that.

I do have the dollarama stand, its not exactly an item that needs fitting, it just has a slight protrusion meant to hold the tablet in place.

^Thanks and thanks clicked man.

When I saw it in store I was wondering if the lip was wide enough since I figured the Le Pan had to be thicker since it's value priced and not the super slick Apple product.
