    the leads are around 20 quid the software is free if you know what i mean, works best with a serial interface lead and port tho as USB ones can be extremely problematic to get working in comparison..

    think i need to try and look into this more as sounds like a cheaper option as long as i get the right software and lead.so do you know any good sites you could pm me or link so i know where to get the right lead and software only if you can that is

    modern laptops dont have serial ports by the way so you need to check that first on yours, or if you can source one that has, you can overcome it with a pcmcia to an RS232 serial adaptor card if your newer laptop has pcmcia slots...

    i have several versions of INPA ediabas software so far ive installed and tested 2 of them succesfully..

    i got my leads off fleabay for 20 quid it has to be an INPA KKline serial interface (connected in usually ADS mode in INPA software) if you want all the functions and access to all the modules, i got mine from here...

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=250787280237

    software that comes with it is shite and dosent work, no great shake tho i had it anyway nudge nudge wink wink..


    various useful stuff on INPA on here in the diagnostics section and on the tinternet just google it and read up a bit first..
