Hi All,

New owner, just bought a 66 plate PHEV. I have no idea on the "model" or anything but it seems pretty basic. I have a few questions!

1. Is a 66 a 2017 MY?
2. Can I retrofit MMCS?
3. I have come from a Range Rover where I had an IID tool which could read every ECU in the car and also reconfigure settings - does such a thing exist for these? (I do not mean a basic ODBII reader!)

Thanks in advance :)

Definitely probably :). My 65 plate was delivered on Xmas eve and is the (facelifted) 2016 model, but there are 65 plate 2015 models around. I don't think there were many (any?) changes for 2017.

3. MUT-III software on a PC via an OBD2 dongle.

MUT-III software - am I reading this right that it needs IE 5 (!!!) and XP to work properly? I can't imagine it has much that can deal with a PHEV in this instance?

It does work in newer versions of Windows - that's just what the requirements were when it was initially released. However it was intended to be used on Mitsubishi provided laptops, so there may well be some things that don't quite seem right on some hardware. You're also supposed to use the proper MUT-III hardware interface onto the OBD socket, rather than a generic OBDII to serial interface.

The Outlander as a model has been around since 2001, although only available in PHEV form since 2012. MUT on the other hand has been around since the 1980s in one form or another :)

Ah Cheers :)

Well I've ordered an MMCS from a scrapped PHEV so I guess I'll find out if it's plug and play soon enough - and if the extra wiring is in the there for things I don't have with the current head unit!

I fitted the MMCS. Few things you will need if upgrading from the basic radio :

GPS Antenna (ordered)
CAN BOX (ordered)

Without these you still get the full media suite, bluetooth works, microphone works etc. The CAN BOX is the device that drives the PHEV info.

CAN BOX has arrived. All fitted and I now have the EV screens and the ability to change car settings :-)

Oh plus I can now schedule my charging and preheat :D

Antenna should be here early next week. So fairly painless process to upgrade the car - no need for any coding to be done.

Next on my list :

Collision alert system
Adaptive cruise

If anyone has already fitted these please let me know. I have discovered my vehicle is a GX3H+ apparently - so hopefully it will be a 3H+++++ by the time I finish with it. Might upgrade the interior too.

Don't want to piss on your strawberries but if it's 'only' a 3 it doesn't have the electric heater in the coolant circuit so you won't get much in the way of pre-heating.

The Gx3h+ does have the heater, as I recall. That's what the "+" means.
