Have a chance of getting a new ScanGauge II and was wondering if it will fit a 2003 HZJ78 Troopy? Am told that the ScanGauge will fit any vehicle with OBD connector but I'm not sure if the Troopy has one? Before I venture out into the rain - fantastic stuff - anyone have any advice?

First make sure that your car has OBD2 connector... They mainly come with
the cars that are sold in the USA... Also even if it does have the OBD2 connector
it does not guarantee that it is going to work... It doesn't work in 100 Series TD
and it doesn't works in Prados from 2003-August 2004....

What John said,

And what is an OBD connecter?
Is an OBD2 connector a double adaptor for ODB connectors?

Google to the rescue:

ScanGage it does all the things on that page.

and:

OBD-II
OBD-II is a standard interface to the on-board computer of a vehicle, introduced in the mid-1990s. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) mandated that the specification be adopted for all cars sold in the United States by the year 1996 in order to simplify the implementation of an emissions testing program (see CCR Title 13 Section 1968.1 and 40 CFR Part 86 Section 86.094). An OBD-II interface allows for the readout of DTCs (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) that have been generated by the on-board computer, as well as realtime data from the sensors connected to the on-board computer. In addition, the OBD-II interface provides a means to clear the DTC list once maintenance has been completed. For a list of generic OBD-II DTCs, see Table of OBD-II Codes. Individual manufactures have been known to enhance the OBD-II code set with a host of proprietary DTCs.

Patrols don't have OBDII connector, cause they don't sell them in the USA...
