Compatability
« on: September 25, 2010, 12:11:24 PM »
I just bought a new, 2009 Smart Car and I am wondering if Ultragauge is compatible with it? Will "Smart Car" show up on the initial scan like "Ford" and other models do? If not, how do I do the initial scan?

Thanks for your replies!

Since 2008 all vehicles sold in the USA must support the CAN protocol.  Since you have a 2009, it will display "CAN found".  Also, check your emission decal located on the hood to ensure that it reads "OBDII certified".
