Scanguage2.. A 3 in 1 automotive computer that plugs into your vehicles OBD2 port (on-board diagnostic port).
It basically connects you to your vehicles computer giving you:
a small digital backlit readout sits on your dashboard giving info in real-time.
OBD2 has been around for some years so is probably suitable for 100series V8 and many other vehicles. OBD2 port is on all 2008 vehicles onward. This is apparently how vehicles will be checked in the future to ensure compliance of emissions etc.
Unsure if this OBD2 is applicable to modern diesels, I guess it does as they have similar sensors as petrol vehicles..

Not much good for most if any of the patrols either as they still use Nissans own proprietary system, although I believe there is something out there that is similar that does the job for the Patrols. Some fairly useful info on the patrol forum about this.

Sorry to everyone that had seen this product before on this site. I must have missed it totally a few weeks ago, my brother who is not into 4x4's, mentioned the site and told me to look it up. I guess as the diagnostics become standard in the next few years, there will be a heap more of this type of fantastic gear on the market.. regards Michael

someone (probably Wooders, the local agent) should start a list of known vehicles that they so work in as the US based list isn't reliable.

Works in our 2006 Prado (petrol)
