Has anyone been able to use the JS501/USB jib to interface the cummins INSITE software, or is this a dumb question?

The only dumb question is the one....

--You know the rest of that. Our hardware (TM501 pc jib)  is ready to send messages to the pc program for interpretation and display while driving. They are very much in lock-step; a rather complicated dance. The Cummins tool however is designed, it seems, to transpose the seen messages to the trademarked numbers they refer to, to <i>allow changes</i> and do some low-level corrections.

Ours, on the other hand, is <i>just going to report</i> the SAE messages seen, as-is, just like Detroit or Caterpillar...International... etc. Yet, the two systems don't and can't work together. They have different purposes and so have wildly different way of communicating. Sorry.

As there were no other takers for this question, one takeaway is that no one else (who's dropped in recently) has had much to say on this.
