A scan tool is basically a device which reads the data from the ECM through the OBD port. GM calls it Tech 2, Fiat calls it Examiner. Since you are building a Carputer all you need is the OBD II cable. The frontend (Centrafuse) on you PC will do the rest.

I performed a little research on this, and finally reach to conclusion that Scanguage should work on the Hyundai i20. In fact, Scan Gauge’s official website also mentions that it works on all vehicles manufactured from 2008 to 2011. (ScanGaugeII - Compatible Vehicle List) Still, please cross-check with them by dropping an E-mail: scangauge@linear-logic.com.

This is to inform every one.
Scangauge II works with Maruti Swift Vxi (K series engine, 2010 model.. 1197cc).
I have tested it.
