Can-Bus operating systems are becoming commonplace in new vehicles with many models from the mid 2000’s onwards having at least some Can-Bus control. Most of the major car manufacturers including Audi, BMW, Nissan, Honda and Toyota now use CAN-Bus. One of the advantages of CAN-Bus system is it allows the many electrical components in the car to efficiently share data. However it does make installation of after market alarms and other devices difficult and time consuming.
The AVS Can-Bus translator is a separate module that acts as a bridge between the CAN-Bus system and after market devices. This means the certified car alarm models, as well as other after market devices, can be safely and easily installed into Can-Bus equipped vehicles.
