2011 - 2013 Focus (gas and electric)
2011 - 2012 Fusion (gas and hybrid)
2011 - 2012 Fiesta
2012 Mustang
2011 Figo
2009 F-150
2011 - 2012 E350
2008 S-MAX

The firmware for these vehicles is as of yet untested, but should work fine. If you use the CAN translator on one of these vehicles, do let the developers know.

2006 - 2010, 2013 Fusion
2006 - 2013 Lincoln MKZ
2010, 2011, 2013 Mustang
2011 - 2012 Explorer
2010 - 2013 F-150
2009 - 2013 Flex
2009 - 2013 Lincoln MKT
2012 Edge
2012 Lincoln MKX
Its definitely a start. I can't see that it lets you get much more out of the car than what you can read with your eyes of the instrument panel. It looks like rpm, light statuses, parking brake, pedal % depress, brake % depressed, etc.

I guess they don't want us debugging our DCTs. :\
