Re: CANHacker Freeware CAN Monitor and Tracer

Thanks for posting this, it's a great app!!! I'm running it on Vista, using a USB to serial converter to a CAN232 and have already monitored some of my StarMobile commands and duplicated them with the playback function, done some text editing and then played that back. Works well and very easy to us...

Re: Tire Size Parameters

Go buy a Diablo tuning tool. You don't have to install a tune, but it will let you select custom tire sizes.

Change the rev limiter to 20,000 rpm and send the command to max out the throttle body to full?

Oh, you mean just turn it off!

Kill the fuel?

For the ethernet, why not just run something that monitors the data on the port and captures it?

After all, the StarMobile client software runs on a windows PC...

The voices randomly steal single socks from me and have threatened to continue doing this as well as misplacing my car keys, if I don't continue to do their bidding...

So we're all frightened of them. Especially the one that calls himself jaak. QUICK HIDE, he's coming! :shock:

Well, actually the thanks was to you, for pointing it out in the first place!

But I don't have multiple personalities and neither do we.

The CAN USB appears to be the CAN RS232 with a USB interface tacked on. In the manual for the CAN USB, it talks about conversion from serial to USB in the device and may suffer the same speed limitations. So there may be no benefit to this, other than USB convenience which can be provided with a USB...

USB also messes with the timing, but RS232 will usually spit out the commands as they're captured. USB will batch characters together in packets. So if you are trying to work out the timing of when things happen, the USB is likely to create errors in your measurements.

Re: OScope to CAN Bus...

Met a guy through a local geeks mailing list that has some pretty cool test equipment. In talks with him now to setup a time to get the CAN Bus on an OScope to find out what voltages it operates on. This will help narrow down what circuitry we need to buy to tap into this thing. Will keep the group...

Found out the software is around 2 grand, and there's a CAN bus trigger module around the same price from one of the Tek partner companies, that works with it. (Sneak it in next time one goes in for calibration!) The software will monitor two CAN buses at the same time, or a CAN and LIN bus at the s...

They usually list the pricing, but it looks like it's not posted yet...

They've got it in the software download section. A lot of their stuff allows you to run it 5 times as a trial, then locks it out. So you could run it 5 times on every scope you have... :wink:

Anyone have access to a Tektronix TDS5000 scope?

There's probably enough tekkies floating around here, that one or more of you have access to a Tektronix TDS5000 series scope.

If you do, you'll like this....
