Experts, I'm thinking about installing RaceDynamics ECU in my Swift Zxi. As we all know the stock Swift ECU is not compatible with any of the OBD scan tools (please correct me if I'm wrong) since it uses some custom protocol.

Will I be able to connect my Carputer to RaceDynamics ECU and get the readings on Centrafuse 3.0? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I had bought 3dConnection's mouse for 60$ during a sale from Geeks.com and it's pretty useful for carpc. I also started collecting components for my carpc (in i10).

Looks are tempting though.

Any Swift owners there who has coupled their carputer with OBD tools? If yes what is the setup used? In fact I was planning for a carputer and compatibility to OBD scanners is what is pulling me back.

Bad news there I think all these auto makers should stick on to one single protocol. It will be a WIN-WIN situation for the customers and the car makers.

We had many discussions on Swift OBD scanners and no one seems to succeed. Below post may give you some idea about where we are.
