I've been using it for over a year, with positive results. It totally supports the CAN BUS system but it is made to moniter only, not write. I have reset many codes with it. Feel free to email or PM me if you have any questions about it.

From time to time I see this product mentioned briefly or a passing inquiry on it. Anyone had experience with the product or can confirm that it does indeed fully support the CAN protocols in our vehicles as the manufacturer indicates.

Thx. James I shall. In fact, I was thinking of you when I posted as I recall you were exploring the product.

You sure your talking about http://www.auterraweb.com/, 300C's and a laptop connection?

I say this because the ODB II CAN adaptors they have been selling are NOT compatible with our Chrysle's and they are not Capable of reading Chyrslers enhanced CAN protocols.

I've spent a good deal of time with Dave from Auterra and as of firmware version 3.02 and Dyno-Scan 5.20 they won't work with our 2005-2006 C's. I haven't tried firmware version 3.03 or Dyno Scan 5.21 yet. Even if they did get the basic stuff working they won't set a date to include the enhanced data that would be very useful on our platform.

What sensors/data are you trying to moniter? I can list the ones that the auterra software CAN and DOES moniter if interested. The software I have is 5.0 per the CD.

What exactly wasn't working? Everything? Couldn't get anything to work?

That would be great if you did. If even a majority of these features are available with respect to reading the sensors/data in our car that would be excellent.

Key Features:

All 1996 and newer vehicles supported, including American, Asian, Korean and European
Turn off the vehicle's Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light
Read and clear diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs)
Integrated DTC description databases with thousands of code definitions, including enhanced and generic definitions
Supports diagnostic modes 1 through 9
Supports enhanced diagnostic modes 13, 14, 17, and 18
Rugged molded OBD II cable design
CAN, VPW, PWM, ISO and KWP 2000 protocols supported
USB and serial OBD II adapter options available
High speed CAN 6x communication mode
Bi-directional control support
Read and clear freeze frame data
Supports over 80 live data parameters and multiple ECUs
Monitor live data with line graphs, bar graphs, and meters
Graphically zoom in/out and pan within a virtual trace buffer
View multiple sensors simultaneously with variable sample rates
Record and playback live sensor data streams
Oxygen sensor monitoring and on-board test results
Measure vehicle gear ratio
I/M readiness. Metric and English units of measure
Horsepower and torque measurements
0-60 time, 1/8 and 1/4 mile time and speed, MPG, and top speed

Product Advantages

Support for all 1996 and newer vehicles including Domestic, Japanese, Korean, and European cars.

Support for CAN, VPW, PWM, ISO, and KWP 2000 communication protocols.

Rugged mechanical design with molded OBD II cable.

Playback progress monitor indicates the file position during playback.

Multi-page graph trace buffer allows scrolling through a large amount of data.

Zoom in/out and pan up/down/right/left on both the x and y-axis's.

Movable graph markers find exact data points within the graph.

Find the precise data value on any point within the graph using the graph marker.

Bar graph shows each sensor measurement in relation to the absolute minimum and maximum sensor value.

Independently adjustable sensor sampling frequency: high, medium, and low.

English and Metric units of measure supported.

Target a specific vehicle computer and obtain sensor measurements from only that computer module.

Temporarily suspend live data using the Hold feature.

Oxygen sensor screen shows the vehicle's O2 sensor measurement test values.
