I tried using an adapter similar that plugged into an ELM OBD-II device but torque didnt recognize the J1587 protocol so it didnt work...

torque saw the ELM device but never read any data out from my computer on the bus..

I read an RV blog someplace where a guy built his own interface and I believe posted the schematics to it..

I can download the Navistar software, is there an adapter to laptop that could be used. I would want verify the accuracy of my gauges, at the very least.

the adapter that Navistar supprts is a $700 NEXIQ USB-LINK 2 (I have one)..

the VMSpc was $400 and he gives you the software to design your own gauge panel layouts.. however not all the PIDs are there.. IE on my 444E it wont read me HPOP data..

I may have ot make my own software for it.

the VMSpc cant be used to program any parameters such as tire sizes, auto idle , cruise control, etc..

the NEXIQ can be used to program parameters with the serviceMaxx software you downloaded but ServiceMaxx doesnt have a nice road-driving screen... (alas why I have both devices)..

NEXIQ will provide you the API to the USB Link 2 so you could write your own software for a nice driving display.. (again I may do this)...

Well... I am not about to spend 700 right now, so that idea is out! Lol.
I will have to wait till you and I cross paths someday and see it in action.
I wish I had the know how to write my own software.
