    ELM327 is slow and only official ELM chips are supported in any new software, so the cheap clones you guys are linking will be very hard to get working (I know - I own one!)
    As a car nut Im very interested in this chip, as it claims to be much better than the ELM series. The ELM chips are fairly slow when reading multiple sensors, so Im excited for the speed improvement alone.
    Finally, the chip is fairly expensive (just like the ELM chips), but something Ive not seen anyone mention is that the company is giving away FREE SAMPLES of this chip! The link isnt given on ScanTool’s site, but its on the official mfgr’s site here:

    My samples arrived at the beginning of this week, about three weeks after ordering. The plan, anyway, is to design a similar board, using the schematics in the datasheet, to fit inside the OBD connector housing. Stay tuned =)

    Ive posted a helpful guide on connecting this chip to an Arduino on my site. Hopefully someone finds it useful!

    A simple fix for the ADJ pin problem (and also the Arduino PWM problem I suppose) is to use a small NPN to drive the ADJ pin, as so:

    I sent this off to Pete a few days ago but figured Id post it here too, just in case!

    Thanks for the Chrome integration, and the script itself too! This is a feature Ive been hoping for for awhile.

  • Product COM-08720 | about 4 years ago

    Incase anyone needs it, Ive found a different manufacturer (stocked at DigiKey and Mouser) who makes this identical button.

  • Product KIT-09629 | about 4 years ago

    Anyone know why this doesn’t work for the iPhone 3GS? If it’s because it’s not recognized as an official Apple charger, you can use 4 resistors to bias the D+/D- USB pins to trick the phone. Just a thought.

No public wish lists :(
