    Which cable?

    Well I was looking around and could not decide, which cable is best to go with for OBD-II readings, linking up to my laptop. I have a 03' Nissan 350Z, so I saw the ELM 323, and 327 cables, but are they the best to buy or is there something better? I'll be linking up to my laptop which is a Toshiba A135-S427 until I can get my car pc running.

    ELM is a perfectly good device for getting OBD data (and even getting and sending non-OBD data), but there are other devices out there which provide a higher throughput and more robustly programmable connection to the vehicle (e.g. Mongoose from, ValueCAN from, EASE devices from, etc.). The first two are in the $300 range, the latter has more variability in price and capability, I think.

    Check out our products at, they are much cheaper than the ELM327 based units and provide the same functionality
