    I know I've seen this somewhere..... just can't remember where.....
    Digimoto is definitely designed to be a diagnostic scan tool only. It is not designed to make any changes to your vehicle whatsoever (outside of resetting the check engine light).

    I know there is a company named Drew Technologies http://www.drewtech.com/ who have built an interface and have software available fo much more advanced features ~ also allowing you the ability to use your OBDII port (I believe) to actually program your vehicle. I believe they have an employee on this forum who can help answer this question in more detail.

Add some other parameters to monitor, and it isn't all the smooth again.

    Though you could stagger the other ones, so you keep the tach and speedo fluid while still getting updates for other parameters at a slower rate.
    Hi
    This is only one example!!!
    VPW Generic Mode 10 PID's at 0.474 to 0.583 mS
    VPW Enhanced Mode 10 PID's at 0.822 to 0.912 mS
    PID for Engine RPM Generic Mode:
    Snd..........> 01 0C
    Rcv..........< 41 0C [0B 98] = 742 RPM

    PID for Engine RPM Enhanced Mode:
    Snd..........> 23 FA 5A 00 FF 01
    Rcv..........< 63 FA 5A 00 FF 01 [0A F8] = 702 RPM

    I can get this speed sending more PID's than Engine RPM and Vehicle Speed
    look this screenshot on this vehicle support 64 PID's from my Data Base and
    not only Engine RPM and Vehicle Speed

    hi digimotojoel, i have not tried this obdII stuff but want to try it, i have a 1997 honda prelude base model, will this work for me? my check engine light keeps on going on everytime, can this be turned off with the hardware and software you have? i want to see my diagnostics also when i drive or whenever, can i leave the hardware hooked up on the obd port of the car? what potential problems will i encounter if i do this? i will be hooking it up with my usb hub, does the hardware require that it is the only one hooked up with the usb hub or can it work with other usb devices connected to the usb hub?what setup can you recommend for what I want to do and how much will it cost? i also sent you an email. thanks

    Can I use this interface to log and inject data to/from the Class 2 serial bus?

    I want to see what all the devices are saying to each other. I also want to be able to send fake messages to the bus, like messages pretending to come from the BCM for example.

    It really depends on the type of error that is being generated in your vehicle. The software will always attempt to clear a code, but sometimes (if the error is persistant) it may not be able to remove it completely. You can leave the hardware hooked to your vehicle, there is a small drain of power that occurs however as the OBDII device itself pulls from the vehicle. I do not know the power consumption off the top of my head. you can use the software with a USB hub, that is fine. I, of course, will recommend the Digimoto 4.03 with the mOByDic based scanner. It is an open OBDII based interface, inexpensive and has provided CAN support longer then many other open interfaces.

    The Digimoto 5.0 release is complete and all customers are entitled to free upgrades. Digimoto.com also has full time support on staff for any questions/problems that may occur. Again, you can always call me directly (414.232.6121) if you have any questions.

    Just looking for OBD-II software and looked at Digimoto's app. How well does this integrate with RoadRunner?

    I am planning on purchasing the Scantool.net's Elm scan product because I can hardwire that unit much easier than the ones with the molded OBD-II connector. Does the Digimoto app still play nice with the Elm scan VPW module? This is going into a '96 Camry that is VPW based.

    The 10% discount isn't still available...is it?

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Are you sure the Camry is VPW? I could have sworn the camry would be ISO, anyways if you are planning on switching cars anytime soon it might make sense to get a multiprotocol scantool that way you do not have to spend additional money when the protocols change

    Yeah, I think the 1996 was the only year they used VPW. I was planning on permanently installing it. I fI get a multiprotocol unit, it will have the molded OBD-II connector. The Scantool unit doesn't. If I use one of the more common multi-protocol ones, it will have the molded cable that won't fit my requirements.
