    what is the difference between this and the compact5? besides price

    Would either of these be ok to use on say a Subaru released for ADM?

    Currently I use a tactrix cable and is nice and fast, but sadly no support on CF for SSM

    Thanks

    I wonder just who is throwing the tantrum here.

    GLM Software’s ELM327 review was written many months before you banned him from your forum as you reported here some time back, so I doubt that you can now claim that as a reason for their review not being fair or objective. Could it be that SinclairVital’s reply here today which blew your OBDLink out of the water is more like the reason for your latest dummy spit?

    According to your website, your OBDLink is still listed as $149.95, so it looks like everything is still kosher in the review at GLM Software. Hopefully the OP may read the review and be enlightened.

    Kosti, since you are also an Aussie, I’d suggest you contact GLM. I’m sure you will get the real lowdown on these scan tools just like I did when I visited them.

    As long as the Subary is AOBD compliant, either one should work.

    Using OBDKey with a Subaru you have the option of using the SSM protocol (used in ADM and pre-OBDII vehicles) and / or OBD-II protocols.

    There is an OBDKey supplied application which configures the OBDKey unit as either a standard OBD-II interface or for the Subaru (SSM) mode interface.

    Once in the SSM mode, you can then run the Subaru custom applications like EcuExplorer with OBDKey, even over Bluetooth.

    You can then run the OBDKey configuration application again and switch the OBDKey unit to "OBD-II" mode before using the usual OBD-II based software programs.

    I can vouch for the OBDKey running in SSM Mode. It's the only Bluetooth dongle I'm aware of that does it. My software ECUTracker (Android port in the works) has SSM support, and works with the OBDKey.

    I also have a Scantool device. I dare say it might be the fastest ELM device I've used to date.

    I have a bit of a speed comparison of the devices on my website too

    You can see that, at least on my 2000 Subaru, the OBDKey in SSM mode smokes ALL AND ANY ELM modules.

    Hope that helps a bit!
