Had a look at the apps. I've got two old XP laptops for fiddling with my cars. Is there only a 64 bit windows version?

Any update on the apps? I can see there is being worked on but while some may be able (and willing) to generate their own apps from code I would be more interested in trying one of the finished ones. Either Windows or Mac would be fine.

I'm not an Arduino expert but I noticed there are to things happening when you connect the CBT. First it connects the boot loader (You can see what's happening in the hardware device manager (XP)) which gets its own COM port. After that it load the CBT itself which gets an other COM port.

Because my CBT got stuck in the boot loader it installed the driver for that and afterwards it always got stuck there. Kind of like your describing the connecting and disconnecting. What I did was to uninstall the drivers for the boot loader. Take the CBT out first! Put in the CBT again and wait till the CBT has actually loaded. This can take a few second. Then install the driver again.

This worked for me. YMMV.

Had a look at the Wireshark part but to much trouble for me. I'm more of a car guy than a programmer ;-)

Looking forward to the apps!

Disconnect the battery and measure between the two can lines. Since they're terminated with two 120 resistors parallel, you should measure 60 ohms. Remember to do resistance measurements only with the battery disconnected!

This is a handy page to check some things on a CANbus.

Congrats, I know what you mean :-)

To advanced for me I'm afraid. I'm a car guy, not a programmer.

Hope someone will be able to help or make the CBT compatible with other packages on the market. The one in the video appeals to me because of its possibilities.

Thanks! Realterm could be the problem. Will try cool term.

Thanks Alan! The problem is that my car doesn't use the CANbus for these kind of things so I need to find what is being send over the line.


Looks like your connection to CANBus Triple was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
