This device works very well… Just be sure to define ‘chipSelect’ as pin 9 when using any sd card example code for this board. Also, the sd card and can-bus cannot be active simultaneously. Just be sure to switch back and forth between them via pins 9 and 10 when trying to access each device.

We are using canbus shields for our industrial products, no problem so far. Worths every penny….
The CAN shield worked out really well for me! Was able to build a bus with a national instruments can interface within minuets! It sends and receives messages with easy to use software. The only thing I don’t care for is the additional hardware for data logging and lcd display is not useful to me. it’s a small complaint.
