I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.
High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC. Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.
The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.
Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id.
When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that"
You can't make it up!
