- with OPCOM, I was able to pull codes stored in ECU
- was able to find my VIN
- was able to provide the Saab PN of my ECU and various components
- was able to list software revs and programming dates of ECU, TCM, and a few interior items
- was not able to access the good stuff (Memory Blocks) on anything
In short, with the current software, it doesn't offer a whole lot more than a standard OBDII reader unless you're looking for software revs.
However, if GM ever put the Sodertalje B235R in another Opel...we might be able to do more (like the '03+ 9-3), but being that I don't think they did...well, yep. $30 OBDII reader.
Plus, it seems like if you had a knack for programming, someone could really open up the OPCOM to do a heckuva lot more (it can work wonders if you have an Opel, actually).
Of course, this is just one man's (very cautious) experience...anyone have any other experiences with the OPCOM and their 9-5?
