All those collections of letters make sense. That collection of words does not.
that's a nice result of auto completion from my phone. It really knows how to mess things up.
So, you clearly DO know how to get the Arduino to pass data to the PC.
Yes I can get it to the serial monitor but I want to be able to get the information to a canbus monitoring program on the computer. I guess what I'm after is a way to dump the data i'm getting from the canbus over the arduino's com port so that I can view it with software like that from canhack.de.
It's the navigation radio in my car. I just added it for reference.
The "infotainment" bus?
Yes the infotainment bus that's located my car. There are three Canbus networks in my car 1.Drive Train 2. convenience 3. infotainment
The infotainment bus is what the navigation, radio, amplifier, steering wheel buttons and a few other things ride across.
And do what? I hope you realize that the Arduino is NOT a radio.
It's not?? I thought I could add a CD, radio and tape deck shield and it would work j/k
I removed the radio and replaced it with a car computer (apparently the words carpc mean nothing to you so I spelled it out). The car computer provides all the functions of the original navigation radio plus much more. So I want to be able to control parts of the computer from things like the steering wheel controls and also be able to put navigation information on the cars drivers display like the original nav unit did.
"interface with" is such an overused, and meaningless term. No idea what a "carpc" is. Is that some kind of fish?
