Hi,
I'm trying to use SavvyCAN with a 'CANdapter' device from Ewert. It didn't work straight away and there seems to be no search results on the web for SavvyCAN CANdapter so I thought I'd ask if it's possible. That way I should at the very least create a Google whack :)

If anyone knows how to make it work as-is I'm all ears. If not, can it be something added to a future release?

Thanks,
Niall

Well, I was not familiar with that adapter. Unfortunately there are many, many adapters out there and they rarely work the same way. But, I looked up that adapter and it seems to utilize the "LAWICEL" serial protocol. They don't say that explicitly but I recognize the command format. As such, if you are using LINUX you should be able to use slcan to turn the adapter into a socketcan device and then use it in SavvyCAN that way. Otherwise I might add support for LAWICEL directly as it actually is somewhat of a pseudo-standard.

Thank you for the quick response. I don't doubt that there's a plethora of adapters out there all ever so slightly different. Sadly I'm not so smart as to be using Linux; I'm on a Win 7 machine. I'll check my options for supported adapters. The EVTV ones look great but I'd like to get something working sooner so hopefully I can source something within NZ.
Thanks again for the quick answer.
