About Us

Our hardware solution consists of an adapter cable which has one end that plugs into the USB port of a laptop or desktop computer and another end that plugs into the diagnostic port of your car. Since our hardware supports USB it is compatible with most computers.


Currently we offer one cable (in Enthusiast or Professional varieties) that is used on all 1996 and newer cars. We also offer an adapter cable for connections to cars model year 1995 and older that have a round diagnostic connector. We also offer a 50' extension cable as an option.

Free Updates

If you purchase an interface adapter, you are entitled to free software updates for as long as you own the hardware.
You can see all of the changes we have made to the product by looking at our version history.
