  • Need a clear understanding...

    Hi guys and gals, this is my first post but I've been reading for weeks. After researching obd2 for months I have a few questions. BTW, my car, 2000 mitsu eclipse GT.

    Is it safe to compare brX with elm? I mean, what's the difference? And if anybody can tell me what my car uses or how to find out then I'd appreciate it. I know my car uses ISO91...something. Does that relate to what uhhh interface I have?

    I have been downloading software for all the obd2 readers I could find. Now that I have played with them I got picky. Each one has something I want but not everything I want. So somebody please show me a program that allows full customization of gauges, a dynamometer, 1/4 mile timer, full customizable graphs, all possible tests, and logging and playback.

    Is there anyway to know what options my car does spit out to the software before I buy?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Chances are, if you are in the states then all cars after 96 have obd2. If you are in europe then it was 2001.

    I have the elm interface and it is OK for its price. It only reads about 1-2 pieces of information per second. I don't know about the brX.

    I know Frodo is/was working on a skinnable OBD tool, but I don't know when it will be available. It is designed around the Elm and the BR-3

      Yes, I have the OBDII. But it seems as though there are different interfaces and I need to know which one I have.

        Lots of views, no more replies. Guess I'll just buy one and hope I get the right one.

          Did you ever think about contacting a Mitsubishi tech department? Perhaps at a local dealer?
          Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
          How about the Wiki?

              Just wondering what the right terminology was. So ISO is the interface...what is BR1, BR3, ELM....?

                ELM is a series of chips that interface between OBD and RS232 (serial port). There are ELM chips to interface with the ISO, PWM or VPW standards.

                Dunno about BR1/BR3.
