Looking to purchase a MX+, but was wondering if you guys have an affiliate link or something that I can click on to "wet your beak" so to speak?

There's a metric ton of knowledge here and I know it takes some time, effort, & dinero to keep it all running and thought that if there was something like this I'd like to do my part and help out w/ a click and purchase.

So its October 7 2019 do we have a definitive answer yet here? Is the obdlink mx+ the end all be all? Does it support coding all modules and whatnot? The only recommended adapters that FORscan will lay claim to on all fronts pretty much are impossible to get

I own a Mazda 3 2010 1.6D. Do I nees to look for HS/MS CAN support or is that only something specific for Ford?

I have been using this adapter for over two years used on 2005 Jetta., 2000 ford Focus and 2007 Mazda 3 all with no problems at all.

Wife got a Mazda3 2010 ...

When using ForScan ...right at the beginning program wants to know if Elm Unit got a switch ...

Yes ... Mazda uses both HS and MS

New to the forum today. Forscan rookie. I just hoped up to my truck with elm327 and version 2.3.26. It recognizes all aspects of the truck but when I want to access and change anything it says I require "extended license. How do I get this and does it cost anything. Thx

Just got a friend with Ford SMax 2009 and try today with my Viecar obd reader. Have issue with parking sensors and change/code/program system from front/rear to only rear :) and front not working, but rear working. Will try to attach images here or to external server. Post link for device.

New user...

Has anyone tried Autometer DashLink to link via BlueTooth to FORScan?

Hello,
I have ordered obd2 adapter Vgate iCar2 Wifi version for my Ford Galaxy MKIII, MY2008, 2.2TDCi, 129kW.
Can you please let me know if this adapter is able to switch to MS-CAN? If not, is there any manual/ guide how to do that?
Thank you for advice
