    Mongoose / J2534 with CAN vehicle


    I am considering to purchase a Mongoose to use with my 2006 Mazda 3. Since the Mazda uses a CAN bus, does it matter which version of the Mongoose is used? Would the CAN/ISO version work properly with this car (including the ability to reflash the ECU)?

    Thank you in advance.

    I plugged my ELM327 scantool into a Mazda 3 SP23 (I think the SP23 brand is only used in Australia) and it fired up as an 11bit 500kb/s connection.

    It may have an ISO interface too, I don't know. Certainly my own car (an Australian BA XR8) has both.

    My Mongoose purchase will be for the Asia/Europena version with CAN and ISO support.
