Would have thought this sort of diagnostics display onto a phone or dvd lcd would have China running to their factory doors trying to get the s**t sent over to satisfy fordmods demands :)

I want one of these if it will work, dvd screen to suit and setup an old laptop under the seat.
I love the info these babies punch out, until now, a big advantage the VN had over the E series, in my opinion :)

The plug is not the same shape as that on my e-series. I didn't think the E-series were OBDII either.
