    I have it...but I ordered it 1 day before I found out I have a lower bearing failure..so it will probably be some time before I will be able to test it out. Hopefully it wasn't a waste of money. Maybe you could test it for me? haha...of course returning it after the results.

    I'm not running their cable, but I do use evoscan with obd1. I have some old school serial cables and I just use a usb-serial adapter. I'd go with their cable as the adapter you need (if you have an old serial cable) is a PITA to get. I think I went through 3 adapters before getting the right one with some kind of special protocol.

    I could test this out the next time that I see an OBDI 3/S since I have the cables+software for all years. They are pretty much the same deal when it comes down to it, however, EvoScan already incorporates audible alerts and is set up for wideband input. HHH is more user-friendly in presentation IMO.

    The issue is that the ODBI ECUs use a non-standard 1952 bps data rate that few USB to Serial chipsets support. Adapters build from the FDTI chips seem to support it like the Keyspan USA-19HS.

    I'm using 2.7

    Make sure you are trying to connect with a "1.3 cable" and not the "2.0 cable". The FDTI chipset is also a necessity. I found that out the hard way.
