Looking for a USB-CAN module to hack my car



  • Does anyone have a USB to CAN adapter that I could borrow for a couple of days? I am looking for something like this, but really anything that I could connect to my car and dump some data would work. I will order one, but I want to make sure I find a unit that has good driver support in Linux and is fast. I am planning to use it with can-utils set of tools.



  • I have one of these:

    (got it thru the kickstarter)

    I haven’t needed it since I got it, so I haven’t used it yet.



  • I was not looking for one… yet. Now I’m interested. :)


  • 3D

    I have a cheap bluetooth dongle that acts as a serial port if that’l help. It can read codes and get some realtime data too (well, as far as bluetooth can do realtime). I’ll bring it over to the hack night today.



  • @toxuin that will definitely help me at least get started. Thank you!
