Tired of seeing just limited generic OBD2 data with your vehicle interface?
With the EASE scan tool software, you can now expand the capabilities of your ELM327 or Mongoose interface to access GM proprietary systems to view and record data, read and clear enhanced DTCs, and perform bi-directional controls on virtually all proprietary systems.
Just select the GM Vehicle group that contains your vehicle and you can access all the specific car computers that your vehicle interface supports such as Engine, Transmission, ABS, Airbag, Body and Bi-directional controls at an affordable price.
Please Note: You must already own an ELM327, Mongoose or EASE Vehicle Interface in order to use this scan tool software.
GM Enhanced OEM Diagnostics Supported Vehicles
Scan tool software for GM enhanced OEM diagnostics is available for Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Hummer, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, and Saturn vehicles from 1996 - 2012. The EASE scan tool software is designed to work on General Motors vehicles that are sold in the USA and Canada. Select your Vehicle Group and Level of Data below and you can get started today accessing more information than has ever been available.
Note: Other scan tool software is available for Ford, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota and Mazda.
Supported OBD2 Protocols for GM Enhanced OEM scan tool software
The scan tool software supports many GM protocols and all legislated OBD2 protocols; however, the data and controllers you have access to depend on the vehicle you are connecting to and the vehicle interface you are using.*
Protocols used by GM Supported by Software: *
- Single Wire CAN (SWC)
- GM LAN
- UART (160, 8192, 9600 baud)
Legislated OBD2 Protocols Supported by Software: *
- J1850 VPW/PWM
- ISO-9141-2 ISO
- ISO 14230-4 KWP2000
- ISO 15765-4 CAN
* ELM327 vehicle interfaces support all legislated OBD2 protocols. The OBDLink MX vehicle interface supports all legislated OBD2 protocols and GM Single Wire CAN (SWC). The Mongoose PRO GM supports VPW, CAN, and SWC.
Meaning the ELM and Mongoose interfaces can access GM enhanced data that is accessed via these protocols. They cannot access data that is on other DLC pins or accessed with other protocols. i.e., they do Not support pre-OBD II vehicles or pre-OBD II protocols on 1996+ vehicles such as UART, ALDL 160, 8192, 9600 Baud Protocols.
Supported ELM and Mongoose Vehicle Interfaces:
The EASE scan tool software was originally designed to only work with EASE vehicle interfaces; however, EASE recently added the ELM API and J2534 API to support ELM 327 and Drew Tech Mongoose interfaces. The software was tested on authentic ELM 327 and Drew tech Mongoose interfaces. It was NOT tested on the many clones that are on the market. It was tested on some ELM clones and the software worked; however, this does not mean it will work on all clones.
The EASE GM enhanced OEM diagnostic scan tool software will work with ELM 327 OBD vehicle interfaces (ver 1.3 and higher), such as:

What car computers will I get access to?
*The number and type of car computers and/or bi-directional controls you have access to depend on; the Vehicle group you buy, the software level (1 or 2), the vehicle (year, make, model, engine, options) you are connecting to and the protocols supported by the vehicle interface you are using.
A 2010 Corvette 6.2L has 22 car computers that are all CAN, so both ELM and Mongoose could access all of these with the purchase of Levels 1 & 2 ( assuming the vehicle is equipped with these computers)
A 1996 Corvette 5.7L has 5 car computer systems, although on an OBD2 vehicle, 4 of them use a pre-obd2 protocol and cannot be accessed by either ELM or Mongoose, only the Powertrain computer is accessible.
However, the 1997 Corvette 5.7L (which is in the same vehicle group as the 1996 Corvette) has 11 car computers and 10 are OBD2 and accessible by ELM and Mongoose, only the Airbag is pre-obd2 and not accessible
