Single moulded unit Rx/Tx Host<->ECU status lights $20.00 to $60.00 Many units seem to suffer poor build quality and reliability issues. Some units are perfectly fine. Make sure you purchase with a buyer who has a decent returns policy should the unit turn out to be defective. I would recommend avoiding this adapter, *especially* if you intend to use it on a Ford or other vehicle which uses the J1850-PWM protocol

Garmin EcoRoute Moulded plug attached to cable, not detatchable Works with EcoRoute HD navigation, "offline" data storage Non ELM327 compatible. The protocol was discovered, however the adapter proved to be too slow to be of any use.
