Notes on Selecting an RP1210 Compliant Adapter

Selecting a RP1210 adapter, commonly referred to as a Vehicle Datalink Adapter (VDA) varies widely from application to application; however, the terminology remains pretty much the same. The following table helps to introduce you to the terminology and helps you to make the correct selections the first time.

 

You must set up every application (in their own individual way) to use the DPA!

Not all OEM applications save the adapter configuration! Some make the user select the adapter to be used every time the application is opened.
