    Thanks!
    I will get a screen capture tomorrow while I am at the shop.

    Well not completely ELM327 since it's missing the CAN protocols I am sure he will get those added soon I imagine.

    Moreover kit's priced at $ 40 plus add time of building it plus cables plus enclosures etc will put you in the ballpark of other ELM solutions.

    I agree that for the adventurous and electronics hobbiest it would be a good project to work on and having more options is always good...

    I imagine it should be easy enough to get a PIC to read CAN code.

    This is what I am getting. It jumps around a bit. This is with all PIDS being monitored.

    Hi,
    thanks for posting.
    Thats interesting. What protocol (ISO, VPW, CAN..?) is it connecting ?
    If you try a software that allows you to set the timeout (I use wOBD) then I bet you will get better speed than that.

    VPW protocol

    I will try that software and let you know.
