OBD Working

Post by Ecmbuster » Thu 29. Sep 2016, 05:05

Here is my short contribution on a vehicle that was tested in the service bay.

Another test was to decrypt the entire scan, a small piece was added in the .pdf

Hello,

thanks for your collaboration. We are pleased to read that you like the API/Viewer.

You wrote that our API is not perfect, so we would like to try to make it better. We really appreciate comments and/or suggestion that could help us reaching that goal.

Thanks again,
Best regards,
Keneth

Added is a vehicle that was tested soon after the earlier version. This specific vehicle is slightly more advanced.

An option to change the data scales (minimum and maximum) on the fly when graphing data would be one enhancement. That feature would be of benefit if looking at a closer view.

Hello,
An option to change the data scales (minimum and maximum) on the fly when graphing data would be one enhancement.
Have you noticed that when using the mouse wheel on the graph, you can zoom in/out and change the scales ? Or do you mean it would be best that the graph automatically adapts the scales based on the current values.

Thanks for your feedback.
Best regards,
Fabrice

Actually I didn't have a mouse connected (field test) but either automatic and setting the scale manually may be of benefit.

This added document is for a 2009 Subaru Tribeca and similar to the earlier documents.
What is impressive is the speed of connection compared to other tools like the ELM327.

Thank you for sharing your Test Results with us :D
The speed is based on a real CAN Interface not a CAN to RS232 "gateway". Many people do not understand why real CAN Interafces cost more - a simple CANRS232 could never handle so higher busload in realtime.
