    Smile Suggestion for 2006 Subaru Legacy

    Hi Everyone,

    Finaly got my Carputer installed.

    Now need help for choosing OBD cables. I prefer USB connection since all the wiring has been done. However, I know some software is not support USB, please give me suggestion.


    Thanks.

    For a Subaru, take a look around this site. You may want to read up on the differences in the Subaru Select Monitor (SSM) protocol as opposed to the OBDII protocol. It provides Subaru-specific parameters and can update at a much higher rate than generic OBDII. There is much free software out there for SSM for datalogging and downloading/flashing ROMs, but you need a special cable to use it. So if you want this kind of access to your ecu, then read up on those cables. The OpenPort and the Cobb Accessport cables work very nice.

    Still not sure which cable I should get.

    Can you help me to confirm it works for 2006 Legacy and able to Flash ECU?


    Thanks

    You just need the $79 one. I can't confirm it will flash a Legacy since I have an STi. This link indicates that it will.
