    A link for OBD2 low-cost tools based on AGV processors:

    www.odb-diag.com



    AGVs are much faster (20-30%) and cheaper than ELM chips because of their hardware. They are also better equipped: You can connect LED and LCD displays to them.

    The AGV4000expert processor (based on AT90CAN128) has a PWM, VPW, ISO, KWP and CAN mode and also a CAN-low-level mode which is Lawicel compatible. The software is CanHacker.

    The interface is available in different versions. It also works with ELM-based software like Scanmaster, Digimoto or Scantool.

    The AGV4500 processor is an AGV4000 processor that was enhanced with an LCD display. It has a complete integrated stand-alone mode: erase errors, display errors (scrolltext & error code), freezeframes, sensor data.

    AGV4000 processors have a transit mode for the use of VAG.com 311/409. This mode is quite popular in Europe because there are many cars from the VW combine.

    At 99 euro the AGV 4000 is way more expensive than the OBDPro ; while the OBDPro still offers the higher speed advantages similar to the AGV due to the higher baud rates. (128KBPS)

    But for folks needing VAG COM AGV seems to be the winner.

    And from 3 posts ago, no -- unplugging the cable, requesting data (properly), and almost anything cannot crash an ECU. An OBD-II conformance test (J1699) checks many of these things, and the US EPA requires any vehicle to pass this test before sale. It is possible to cause problems if you use a crappy vehicle interface that causes network faults, but if you remain within the specs there is no problem at all.
    What are all these usefull protocols that I am missing out on because I'm not using a Mongoose? Also if I remember correctly to reprogram on the J2534 on some vehicles requires voltage to the computer through the bus?

    Sure can crash the CPU. If you haven't done it, then good for you. Don't tell me that I haven't, or that it can't be done. It really makes me wonder why you would even want to argue, seems that that would be counter productive. Especially seeing how there is a major lack of software for your product as far as I can see.

    What is your primary role in your company?
    Does the Mongoose have any clear advantage in a carpc?
    Is there any software for the carpc?

    michbound,
    Yes they use VPW, but HD mostly use custom messages that I need to listen for and decode their meanings.

    So JOEYORAVEC no answer to air1kdf
    What happened? Did the mouse eat your tongue?


    Any how you are way to over price. Thatís the reason no one will write software for you. If you lower those prices maybe you can have a niche on the market.

    Hello,

    On my search for an interface with a Harley Davidson / Buell machine I found this forum. Does anyone here can tell me if HD uses VPW or PWM?
    Thanks!

    air1kdf mentioned a couple of posts back that the HD uses VPW but the messages are "custom messages"
