D-Shift Enhanced CAN Decoding

The D-Shift Sequential Shift Light is enhanced with the ability to passively monitor and decode CAN data that is normally broadcast within many vehicles, enabling maximum performance with minimal lag or risk of interference with OBD tools. In the event that supported CAN broadcast data is not available, it will automatically fall back to requesting data via standardized OBD-II CAN communications, ensuring seamless coverage for virtually all 2009+ cars, plus certain models back as far as 2004.

CAN broadcast data is readily accessible via the OBD port CAN on many mid-2000’s to late-2010’s vehicles, enabling this enhancement to automatically work with an OBD Plug & Play installation, as well as the CAN Direct Wire option.

Most late-2010’s and newer vehicles, most VW/Audi/Porsche of all years, and some others, use a gateway module or otherwise do not have CAN traffic visible on the OBD port. As such, D-Shift OBD installations would simply fall back to using standard OBD-II communications. If you desire the benefits of enhanced CAN decoding on these vehicles, you would need to do a Direct Wire installation to a specific CAN (typically the Powertrain CAN).

Below is a list of included CAN decoders, which are covered by the default Auto Detect option, or may be manually selected using the D-Shift Mobile App. Information is based on D-Shift firmware v1.0.13.
