    Does anyone know the protocol used for the OBD2 data link/transfer on an 05-11 Tacoma. I want to hook up another OBD2 device along with my scanguage. Here's a reply from the Linear Logic people.

    Hello Mark,

    Thank you for your inquiry. If the vehicle uses the CAN protocol, you can chain many ScanGauges or OBD2 devices together. If the vehicle uses VPW or PWM, you can hook at least 2 up, and possibly more. If the vehicle uses ISO – then unfortunately the vehicle can only handle one ScanGauge or OBD2 device. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Regards,

    Technical Support

    thanks, Mark S.

    Thanks Anethema; I spent a while googling and you're right. It seems to be CAN compliant. A cable splitter costs around $15 and I'm good to go.
