    Hey guys,

    Jag ~ Send an e-mail to [email protected] with your purchase info and I will make sure you are credited. I saw a couple more orders come in again today from you guys (thanks again for the business). I am going to leave the discount code up here indefinitely.

    Shotgun ~ you definitely need to try out Digimoto Lite. You will be pleased. Our next release of Digimoto 4.0 (probably out in less then week) is based off of Digimoto Lite (just has more features) ~ all customers will receive 4.0 as a free upgrade, regardless of when you had ordered from us.

    Last night I released an updated version of Digimoto Lite which included support for the mOByDic interface ~ it is a multiprotocol unit (all protocols in one) and also supports CAN.

    Shotgun ~ also, about leaving the hardware hooked up to the OBDII port. The power that is needed by the OBDII hardware is drawn from the OBDII port. The drain is minimal, but it is a drain nonetheless. Just something to consider. I know I used a 12v adapter to power my ECU emulators, but I am not sure what the actual consumtion is from the hardware, I will look into it.

    I bought mine early this week. No disrespect Digimoto but is there any other software that others are using with this converter. I own a Dodge Dakota (ISO) and I want to see all the sensors if possible. Current draw...probably no more than a couple hundred ma's.

    Thanks for the quick answer. I'll have to give 4.0 a spin when it's released.

    I suppose I could just add a relay or transitor to cut the power when the car's off. Haven't looked in a bit since I have it embedded in the floor, but I thought the power light went off with the key out. Have to check it again.

    One other question. As far as the ELM, it's basically a PIC correct? Do you think it would be possible to buy one with a shortened delay to bump up the sensor readings? I thought there was a 200 or 300ms delay built in. Though maybe I'm remembering wrong. I'm working now on tapping the tach and speedo directly for quicker readings (for my digital dash), but if I could get the update rate up, I'd probably just forgo it.

    How well does the serial to USB adaptor work? Just wondering if anyone has got one and if they have had any problems.

    Our latest version (Digimoto Lite) queries the ELM about 5x faster then all previous releases. This does not mean you will get 5x faster results... it just means it will move as fast as the ELM will allow. We get about 200 updates a minute with the ELM hardware, with mOByDic we get about 380 and with mOByDic CAN we get about 890 updates a minute. These limitations are in the hardware, there is a 20ms delay between queries (software limitation) so the fastest I can take the software is about 3000 updates a minute ~ if I could find hardware to do that.

    There are all kinds of software applications that support the ELM interface (ProScan uses the same interfaces we do... also check out ScanTool.net for the complete list of 3rd Party Software Apps). Keep in mind that Digimoto Lite has a serial interface so if you do not see the sensors you would like in the software, you can write a query to the OBDII system directly to retrieve your readings. Down the line I will probably work out plug ins for people who are interested in developing their own end user tools.

    Snyper ~ You will need a USB to Serial adapter (like the ones we sell on our site) ~ otherwise you can purchase your own as long as it is fully RS232-compliant (i.e., it provides the full -10V/+10V voltage swing). Some USB to Serial adapters do not work because they use converters that have omitted the RS232 level shifter, and their output goes only from 0V to +5V.

    Too bad elm won't sell a version for "off road" use.

    New hardware is being developed by ScanTool.net currently as well as ELM Electronics (creators of the ELM). All these next gen devices should improve over time... as any product should.

    Hey, i bought one of your scantools and the digimoto software a couple months ago but I haven't had any luck getting it to work on any cars

    So far ive tried:

    - 2001 mitsubishi lancer
    - 2000 mitsubishi lancer
    - 2000 subaru liberty
    - 2005 toyota corolla

    I live in australia and was just wondering if anyone knows any australian delivered cars which are confirmed to work with the ISO scantool? I've had a Bosch scantool used on my car (2001 lancer) and it worked fine. Is there a chance that my scantool is broken? Or is it more likely to be bad luck with cars.

    I think the Magna is ISO. Not a hundred percent sure but an educated guess as much of it is shared with the "Project America" platform that the Mitsu Eclipse and Sebring/Stratus coupes are built on. I know they share many many parts at the very least and the american versions are ISO
