Honda 2012 and up diagnostic tools

Post by joe » Wed Dec 24, 2014 6:08 am

Hi

I know everyone here is all about getting extra horse power and performance from their Honda cars. I just bought a 2012 Honda CR-V, not as sexy as the Honda cars, but it's what I need. I always do the majority of my car maintenance and am looking for a diagnostic tool to repair the car, and update the ECM with firmware updates from Honda.

I've seen numerous gateways that sit between the computer and car that claim to work for certain year Honda's. It seems as if Honda made some big changes around 2012, and older hardware won't work with newer Honda vehicles.

I'm looking to learn more about what is needed as far as gateways and software. Can anyone recommend web sites that can give me insight on which pieces of hardware I should be getting and resources that I can use?

Someone mentioned Honda's tech web site. Any comments about it?
