monitored by engine monitors. JP Instruments' engine-monitor units
have begun to encrypt the data output of its monitors so it can't
be read by third-party software. Whether this is to protect itself
liability-wise or to discourage competitors is unclear. It seems the
company is working on a fix, which may require a fee from users to
translate the file format."
