    The "prius-touring-club" had a meeting June 28-29 at Chambord.
    We had participants from France , Belgium and Switzerland.
    Alltogether around 40 hybrids near a small Drive-In :D .

    Please enjoy the pictures here and the splendid album there.

    This is for fun : Compte tour "deluxe" sur PRIUS
    or here : Mesures : Mini-Scanner, CAN view, Scangauge, ... - Page 15 - Forum Prius Touring Club

    In fact, we made a lot of adaptations to PriusCanMonitor .
    this is a pgm written in VB6 by a Japanese guy (sorry noname) for the canusb interface , it was adapted by timster for the ELM327.
    we made lots of changes :
    the pc is linked to the diag plug of the prius via a canusb interface OR an elm327 interface (the program can manage the diffs).
    In both cases , we run the comport at full 500kbps , so we do not need masks or filters , we receive around 1660 frames from the CAN by sec , and we filter what we need in the program.
    we get a very accurate calculation of fuel used (thanks to ken1784 whose supermid allowed the comparison between PID520 & the injector timing)...
    and of course the graphs are a bit different...
    there are 6 or 7 running this program in france.

    I will be very busy in the future because gen3 uses the same protocol , but everything seems different (but the speed !!!) , so it will be necessary to do the same kind of exploration as attila in 2004....
