Cheap Xhorse-made knock-off

Popular Techstream 10.10.039 (tested by thousands of users)

– High reliability using SMD chip, and certified by CE and FCC

ALL communication protocols supported for Toyota (1996 – latest):

K-Line ISO 9141/KWP 2000 ISO 14230-4/SAE J1850 PWM/SAE J1850 VPW/CAN 2.0B ISO 11898 /CAN ISO 15765-4

Note:

The knock off cables use 1.4.1 or 1.4.6 (latest). The “real” cables use 2.0.1 or 2.0.4 (latest). They are all fake of course but the good fakes use the same firmware as the real Xhorse cable. The 1.4.1 firmware does not support active tests. The cable will work on 10 year old Toyotas like some in the GS forum have said but they will not work on the 2011 Prius as some on PriusChat have said.

Denso IT2 is ideal for technicians because of its high speed during operation

VXDIAG NANO for Toyota at a reasonable price, is the best choice for individual users and professional repairing men with better hardware design and powerful function (ECU diagnosis & programming, key programming).
