Car-Pal OBD Interface Unit Works with Pocket PC and Palm
Vital Engineering Ltd is introducing the Car-Pal OBD Interface Unit. The Car-Pal OBD Interface Unit operates with any vehicle equipped with OBD II, using ISO, SAE or CAN protocols. This covers vehicles built for the USA market since 1996 and for the European and Asian markets since 2001.

The software supplied with the Car-Pal OBD Interface Unit can retrieve and clear both Generic and Manufacturer specific diagnostic trouble codes (DTC); display generic code definitions on-screen; switch off 'Check Engine' Light; reset the ECU to clear fault codes; display live sensor data and freeze frame data (PC platform only); measure performance data, such as 0-60 mph times and ¼ mile times (PC platform only); communicate with Engine Management System and Emissions Systems; record your own “freeze frame” data in software with one button click.

The product is fully compatible with the CAN protocols used on some vehicles built since 2004/2005 and with PWM, VPWM protocols used on some USA vehicles, including GM, Chrysler and Ford.

Users will be able to purchase a wired (RS232 serial) or wireless (Bluetooth) version of the product, which includes software for Palm OS or Windows Mobile Pocket PC and Smartphone.

Prices from £84.95 including full software are available.
