jspobuk: I don't want to sound like I'm stating the obvious, but since you say you're new to it then it may have been overlooked.... make sure the serial bitrate in your serial console is the same as the one in the serial.begin line. Without the code to hand I can't be certain, but I don't think there's any "halts" in the code before the first bit of code you post, and mismatched speeds could be a prime culprit there.

Hi Sherlock
Do you have a project thread or some place you post about what your working on

I would like to follow your progress and see how you got it all working
What else do you have planned ?

I ordered most of my stuff from Mouser. The transceiver chip ends in 234 which is maybe why you can't find it. Here it is at Mouser:

You will need one of those chips for each canbus port (so, two per Due) and some misc other goodies (60 or 120 ohm resistors, small value capacitors, etc). Also, use a schmartboard 1.27mm arduino board which is part # 206-0004-02 (also available at mouser). This board has a place to put the transceiver chips as well as having pins that go into a normal arduino board. It is not the proper size for a Due but you can run jumper wires to the proper pins of the Due. It's sort of a cobble job at the moment but it does work.

Hi AdderD

Thank you for the links and info.
The page with the transceiver chip has different ones.
Which one do I need and whats the difference between these ?

Can you recommend a Arduino bread board start kit also ?

Thanks Again

Hi Everyone

Ive been reading up on this thread for a while now. 
I tinker around with old cars, and have been wanting to figure out how to put a gauge cluster out of a 09 Corvette into my current project.
Im a software developer by day and junk yard mechanic by night :-)

I would like to get started with the Arduino DUE to tinker with the can bus on the cluster.
Its GMLAN which I read that they have a Highspeed and low speed can bus in there system.

Im about to order the DUE, but what other hardware should I order to get me started using the CAN API.
I come from a OO background so I probably will look into AdderD branch of the CAN API, since he mention its a little more structured for OO

I saw earlier post that people are making a shield with SN65HVD243..  I search online a bit and havnt found a place to order these...
What other fun stuff will I need to order ?  And possibly from where if its allowed to be posted ..

Thanks in advance!  Cant wait to get started
