So tempted to purchase one.... Product looks good. I have not seen a single negative remark so far. ^_^
im interested in purchasing a unit. Im still deciding if to go serial or usb. Mostlikely will go serial.
* What is the current hardware version?
* Any known issues so far?
* Does the serial version still have a slotted user replaceable chip for the event of updating?
* Do you have any information on hooking this up with a PPC? Im assuming one can use a serial hot-sync or usb hot-sync cable from the pda to the unit and it would work? (i could be terribly wrong)
I might have more questions later.
* (i wonder if this will work without issues in my car...)
No issues at this point some of the initial versions would go into a infinite detect mode if not hooked up to an OBD II vehicle (eg on a test bench), but this did not hamper functionality in anyway, this has been corrected now.
Serial version uses a socketed chip so when there are updates you will still be able to just replace the micro.
Serial Hot-synch cable works but you cannot use a USB hot-synch cable since most PPC's act as a USB device and not as a USB host.
2001 spyder will work fine with this interface, but in case you run into problems you can always return it no questions asked.
Will the micro be available from you as well and about how much?
^_^ just about to buy the serial version.
I am not sure how to handle the upgrades yet, but currently I am thinking that if users ship the old micro back to me I will send out the upgraded one for a programming fee probably something like $ 15 (not finalized yet so don't hold me to it ) or so to cover shipping and handling.
Of course if there are any issues with the interface I will ship the users a new one at no charge.
Beats having to buy a new interface I think.
since the usb version does not have a socketed chip, does that mean it can not be updated easly -or- at all?
Eitherway, i have all the information I need at the moment. ^_^
*Purchased* OBDPro Serial Scantool ^_^ can't wait to play with it.
I tried to purchase the serial adapter, but I live in Canada. There is no option to select the right province. Just state...

I figured out what the issue was. You have to select which country you live in. Then it displayed the province.
My order is in.
