Summary0000001: Automatically attempt reconnection to ECU after connection lost
DescriptionParticularly important for Pocket PC users, when you turn the car off, then back on again, you need to click on the gauges to exit out of them, then re-select the COMx port dropdown list to re-initiate the connection to the ECU. This is the case even if auto connect option is selected (which only auto connects on program start, not on disconnection).

Need to have it so ECUTalk will automatically retry connection whenever it is lost.

when 5 seconds elapses since last data was received, ecutalk will start attempting to reconnect (whilst the gauges are still shown, ie in the background). so as soon as the connection is set back up (ie car started, consult cable plugged back in, etc), the gauges will start responding.

so, if you set up your pda so that it turns off after 30s when on battery power, then when your car turns off, the connection is lost, ecutalk will start to retry connection...then pda will be turned off, until you start car again, once pda turns back on it will reconnect and continue showing gauges/logging.
