The Prius Mini-Scanner is a device that reads information from the computers in a Toyota Prius and displays it for your edification and delight. The instrumentation provided on the Prius is quite rudimentary, especially given the technology in the car's powertrain. The Prius Mini-Scanner augments the built-in instruments with engine r.p.m., coolant temperature, traction battery current and state-of-charge and much, much more. You can mount the Prius Mini-Scanner behind the steering wheel where most cars have their instruments. It connects to the car using the existing "OBD-II" diagnostic connector and can be left in the car at all times. You do not need to cut any wires or modify the car in any way to install a Prius Mini-Scanner.
If you own a Mark I Mini-Scanner, you are in the right place to find supporting documentation.
If you do not own a Mini-Scanner or you own a Mark II Mini-Scanner, you should really be at http://miniscanner.ecrostech.com.
