If apps like https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ter.beta&hl=en exist, I am sure there is a way to extract this info out. I know that at least ford vehicles transmit this information through 11B6-Transmission Selector Position Input Status

Well, I use torque pro regularly. But have not yet seen this gear pid anywhere. Let me try this app and see if it really works.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1927504 - this is an interesting thread I found at xda. People using tasker and torque pro to automate tasks depending on the data from obd, maybe it can give you some leads. ATB!

The huge demand for the Xiaomi Mi3 and the moderate success of the Zenfone 5 must have played a role in the price drop of the Moto G. However, the most plausible reason could be that the Moto G, launched a year and a half ago, is at the end of its production life and Flipkart must be in a hurry to clear its stock. The likely fallout of this clearance sale is that the Moto G LTE, with expandable memory, could be introduced in India very soon.

Highly unlikely of Motorola to launch MotoG LTE in India anytime soon or with expandable memory. We can except a MotoG with better camera and maybe some hardware tweaks. All this info is from someone very higher up in Google who has been working on Motorola projects but needs to be confirmed.

Regarding my post at #18723, the Moto G was launched in Nov 2013 which is less than a year ago. I stand corrected on that.

@BoneCollector, the Moto G LTE, which has already been launched in some foreign countries, does support expandable memory cards till 32 GB. I am not privy to confidential information but I guess that its easier for Motorola to launch an existing model in India.

The LTE model available outside I guess is a single sim handset. There are some technical issues which I'm not aware about as I was not told anything about it.

All that you have written points towards hardware failure - the LED may have fused/burnt. Can't do much except taking it to service center since the phone is under warranty.

Well , after I typed this I was searching for authorized moto g service centers in Bangalore . They have 2 centers and both of them are quite far away from my place. I removed the back panel , removed the SIM card , switch off-switch on , a little bit of uff uff blowing and removed the dust on the surface and gently pressed sealed battery, and behold the LED flash works perfectly. .

Does anybody know the secret of buying the xiaomi mi3? I logged in from about 12:30 and at sharp 2:00 it changed to buy now. I clicked on buy now as soon as it came (literally less than a second) and it showed out of stock. I am confused as ever. How can this possibly be?

Boss, this could be a marketing gimmick to develop interest of buyers towards the brand. Flipkart hand in hand with Xiaomi. We can't rule out this. This is even worse than irctc

No proof. just my thought.
