Any problems or suggestions
about installing, constructing, or adding the Logging Port
to the SOC-Meter,
Please post here.
Over the weekend, I took the plunge and did the data port installation and upgrade. The instructions were great and one absolutely needs the wiring diagram to be successful. It's not the best installation job in the world as I got a little too zealous with carving the hole for the DB-9 connector (using a combination Dremel tool with grinding bit and razor knife). But my solder joints aren't cold and everything is working great at 115,200 baud. I guess that $40 Gigaware USB to Serial Adapter I got at Radio Shack (in desperation, I might add) paid off. At the end of the day, I made a 15 minute test run covering about 6 miles using CAN-Do V1.52. It was great to see the dashboard changing in real time and the graphs were quite interesting.
Do you recommend changing it out for solid wire?garygid wrote:The Logging Port Kit includes the larger-gauge solid (not stranded) wire for the Logging Port.
