A,Avon is your friend. Just make sure the color of the splitter is the same as your diagnostic port.

I'm not sure you are supposed to hook ELD's and brakes to the Volvo HD-OBD port?  It is missing data and doesn't lock, so I think Volvo wants you to go into the fuse panel and grab power from the fuses and data from the terminating resistor connection.  Use a harness like this, then Y off of that.

https://www.amazon.com/Volvo-Harness-9-Pin-Deutsch-J1939/dp/B07T2FD6DS/ref=sr_1_11?keywords=MasterELD&qid=1581408130&sr=8-11

Yes, for other trucks be real careful to use the right color harness for the right color plug, and that your splitter is actually a splitter and not a crossover cable.  On the GREEN plug your vehicle 1939 is on pins F-G and not C-D like it had been for 20 years with black.  C-D is 500K engine diagnostic.  If you somehow end up with a 500K device on your 250K vehicle can it'll error out the can and if you have an automatic it'll get the dinging F error and shift itself to neutral until you unplug the thing, no matter where you happen to be.  It friggen sucks.  This is a 2016-2019 non-Volvo motor thing (I think that is how you get your HD-OBD plug?) and can get mighty confusing amongst all the truck brands.  EPA forced the 500K for their use and everyone read the rule differently... 

2019+ has a new "RP1226" connector that is standardized so it is the same for everybody.  They don't want you using the diagnostic connector for anything but diagnosing anymore.  There's 9-pin adapters out there that will hook to it.

Scrap, that is the plug in the new trucks that you show above. The Direclink plugs into it and seems to work fine. Should it not be using it?

Yes it is.  For sure that is the plug to use.  It is the HD-OBD that I don't think you are supposed to use for safety/regulation stuff.

there are two versions of the software. Trucks and Motorhomes. I use motorhomes since I don’t need the functions of the trucker version.

Which model do you have? Got an Amazon link?  Thanks for the report.

I bought the Green one that works on the newer trucks on amazon for 190.00

Looks like a nice unit.  Just for the record, I am still running my Silverleaf VMSpc on my Volvo D12 into a netbook on the dash.  It has worked flawlessly for 5+ years.  I can design my own gauges and select from virtually any truck or motorhome engine ever built.  The number of gauges displayed is dependent on your wishes and screen space available.

If you already have the silver leaf I wouldn’t change. If you are comfortable with the software then why change. If you like to play, you can download this device and see if it will work with silver leaf. It might benefit some people that are having trouble with their gauges.
