    Will there be a wired version? How's bluetooth performance? Does it support SW CAN hi-voltage wakeup?

    Also, is the SW CAN implemented like the normal ELM-style? ie ATMA to read? It'd be nice to be able to write without having to interrupt reading. You may miss critical messages and software ends up in a bad state. Sadly the alternative to today's scantool seems to be 2 scantools. One for dedicated reading and one for dedicated writing. This device doesn't happen to solve that does it?

    It'd be cool to put the scantool in a special mode (ie STMA), where reading would resume indefinitely without having to spam atma everytime you try to write something... Maybe that can be solved in firmware?

    Excited,

    Perhaps.

    How's bluetooth performance?
    Excellent. We were pushing 130 PIDs/sec on CAN. The catch is, it seems to depend A LOT on the USB/Bluetooth dongle. 130 was with the fastest dongle. Others were as bad as 20 PIDs/sec.

    Does it support SW CAN hi-voltage wakeup?
    Naturally!

    No, sorry. Asynchronous send/receive is on the drawing board.

    Yes, it certainly can be. Just a matter of time.

    No, sorry. Development began in early 2011, and we had already gone through three revisions by the time of your post.

    What does the STCSWM mode command mean? I'm guessing to do a hi-volt wakeup you switch between normal (2) and wakeup (2) ? or maybe Sleep (0) and Wakeup (2)?

    /me confused...

    thanks!
