International Compatibility
of the ScanGauge II

A word about compatibility, and terms for purchasing outside the U.S.

We will ship internationally outside U.S..

However, the problem is determining compatibility.  (Canadian compatibility is essentially the same as U.S.)

Determining Compatibility

The ScanGauge is compatible with vehicles that use either OBDII or EOBD.

Vehicle under 8500 pounds gross vehicle weight ratings were required to use OBDII in the USA starting in 1996. Vehicles up to 14,000 pounds were added in 1998.

Canada began requiring OBDII in 1998.

EOBD is the European equivalent of OBDII. EOBD was phased in between 2002 and 2004 in most European and other non-North American (NA) countries. Some non-NA vehicles had OBDII/EOBD much earlier than this. If the model was commonly exported to North America, they would use it. Models that were not exported to NA didn't add it until it was required.

To confuse things further, some vehicles used the OBDII/EOBD connector, but only the vehicles equipped with the North American engine controller had the protocol and messaging to be compatible.

Look for an OBDII connector like this under your dash.

International Purchase
(Outside U.S.)

ScanGauge II: $189.95 USD
($159.95 + $30.00 shipping)
[does not include customs...]

You need to be able to determine if the target vehicle is OBDII or EOBD compatible.

The number of incompatibilities becomes far more complex outside the U.S. and Canada, increasing the likelihood of a request for a return.

Terms of International Sale

You need to realize that there is a probability that the ScanGauge II will not be compatible with your vehicle, even though it might be the same make/model as a U.S. or Canadian model listed as "compatible".  You need to review the information above, and look at the photo of the OBDII connector, and confirm that your vehicle is most likely compatible.  You might also contact your local automobile dealer or manufacturer to ask about compatibility.

With that in mind, if you are willing to agree to not return the ScanGaugeII after we ship it to you, and want to give it a try, and then pass it on to someone else if it doesn't work for you (e.g. via eBay), then we will ship to you.

We will honor the 1-year Warranty for any defects in the item.

There is an added fee of $30.00 for international shipping and handling.

Yes, the ScanGauge can display in metric units.

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

    "When you're one step ahead
of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."

-- Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, (Feb. 1998)
