  • Multiplex Engineering interface

    I have been looking around for an OBD scan tool for my iPaq and I realized it looks like I have the T16-009 interface that I use for my laptop OBD-2 program. As I read on the Multiplex website, it says in the FAQ section that it does not come with software, you must write your own. Is there an easy way to write software? Now that I know what tool I have, it seems useless for me to go out and buy another when all I need is the software. The OBD Gauge program won't work with it. Is there any software already written for the Multiplex Engineering T16-009?

    Thanks
    Dan

      OBD Gauge states on the website "Multiplex offers the T16-009 which also supports the CAN protocol, but is not yet supported by OBD Gauge. Support for the T16-009 will be added in a future version." So atleast for a little while I can't use OBD Gauge, which seems to be really well setup. But I am out of luck with that for atleast a little while.

          Try www.obd-2.com. Their software has everything and it's free. It is a PC version and easy to use once you learn it.

                  Our PCMSCAN software fully supports the Multiplex Engineering T16 interface. Unfortunately, we do not support handheld devices at this time.

                      but i wanted to know in the Preferences configuration... the configuration for the multiplex interface.. what's that about the destination address? in hex and decimals? could you tell me about that.. i don't know what to put in there....
                      thanx

                        Each T16 interface comes from the factory with a preset destination address. Each time you need to communicate with the T16, you have to first send the destination address. If the destination address doesn't match, the T16 ignores your communication and does not respond. So it's important to know your destination address. If you do not know it, PCMSCAN provides a T16 detection feature for you.

                        The reason that the preferences dialog provides boxes for entering the destination address in both hex and decimal is because some people only know the hex number or the decimal number of the destination address.

                        Feel free to download our demo version and play around with it. Let me know if you have any troubles getting connected and I'll help you out.

                          one other thing.... does the multiplex interface need to be connected with a null modem? or can it be connected directly with a serial cable?

                            I think it depends on which T16 model you own. Do you know what your T16 model is?
