  • Is there a OBDII to pc interface available for Mac?

    I'm looking to implement a OBDII cabling to USB or firewire, to do engine management and tuning as well as monitoring. Has anyone come accross the cabling and software to do this, either MAC or Windows?

    The cabling isn't an issue. A USB OBDII module should interface w/ any OS.
    Now software is another story. I don't know what OBD software there is for Mac. Hopefully someone else can assist you with that part of the equation.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

      Thank you for responding.
      Can you tell me, where I should look for this USB OBDII module?
      This would start me on the road. From there I could go either with windows or OSX.

          There is no good solution for OBD that is mac native. You would have to run Windows software using Parallels or Bootcamp on the Mac to do this.

            I guess you are correct I've been researching all day and there are not even betas that are working yet.
            i did find a comparison chart of 4 OBDII readers and It seems the scantool is the best bang for buck. Any body here useing this one from auto enginuity?

              A few seconds doing a search on the scantool.net site's support area turned up this: http://www.scantool.net/?mode=displa...gory=Utilities

              Also a few Unix & Linux options that might be workable.
