Well, there are still a few things you can do. You still have an internet connected microcontroller with uninterrupted power from the OBD-II port. You will not be able to read CAN messages, but if you add a GPS you can track your vehicle's location and measure ambient temperatures since it is fully programmable.
Sorry for the disappointment, we try to be as transparent as possible about the limitations of Carloop, particularly that it is CAN based. Let me know if there is anything that I can do to make this suck less. I hate it when it happens to me with other products, so happy to be helpful in any way.
It could be an opportunity to get around CAN and get creative with it, though....just a thought.
