I am going to invest in a diagnostic tool for Honda and Toyota to all trouble codes and need to be ECM programming, KEY programming, and SRS diagnostic.
At the moment I am using Allscanner VCX tool. It can diagnostic Toyota & Honda vehicles but the problem is some functions can’t be supported by it. So I am going to buy a new and powerful tool for my cars.
So I search for advice from forum users which tool is good for my requirement.
From their advice I selected 4 tools and have done some research on them:
- Honda GNA600
- MINI VCI Cable for Toyota TIS Techstream(with software CD)
After a deeper investigation, I finally decided to buy Honda HDS HIM + MINI VCI cable, the two products totally cost me about $130, cheap I think, and I will tell you why I choose them.
I directly gave up GNA600, with the almost same functions, it is much expensive (nearly $500) than others.
Xhorse MVCI 3 in 1 is a diagnostic tool for Honda and Toyota, in my opinion
MVCI 3 in 1 can do similar job with Honda HDS HIM and MINI VCI, sounds good but some forum users share their experience with me that Xhorse 3 in 1 is not effective for ECM programming & key programming, so I abandon it.
As for Honda HDS HIM and TIS Techstream, two products are respectively designed for Honda and Toyota, functions are also very comprehensive, they can do everything I want. HDS HIM price is $95 and TIS Techstream is $26.99.
