    Hi all,

    Im a diesel mechanic down in australia, working for a kenworth and volvo construction equipment dealership, who are also cummins agents. now comes to the question.. I need first hand feedback on the dpa 5 adaptor ( dearborn protocol adaptor. Here's the link? http://www.dgtech.com/product/dpa5/dpa5.php

    Im looking to purchase one as we service and repair a wide variety of trucks. What do you all think of it? Connectivity etc, ease of use and speed?

    I got the DPA 5 thru pocketfleet.com It works really good and all the different types of equipment that we work on. I never used the software that came from Dearborn because you can spend the extra and get alot info with the pocketfleet.
