If BMW ICOM A2 clone




I have seen that the most difference between an original BMW ICOM A2 and a clone is that the original has wifi capability, whereas the clone does not.

Today the OBD2 Scanner customer services tell me that their BMW ICOM A2+b+c diagnostic & programming tool now has wifi capability. And I saw a lot of people comment ICOM A2 clones with wifi capability that work reliably.

On the more technical side, I've encountered through the grape vine that the new units that they add as a wifi Module is, "a Sparklan WMIA-199N based on an ATHEROS MIMO chip."

Apparently it is possible to, "get a fully functional Mini PCI port between the layers"(of the ICOM A2's internal circuit boards that would allow for incorporating a wifi mod).

You can get some information of BMW ICOM A2+B+C below:
BMW ICOM A2+B+C Functions:

A2 - OBD diagnostic supporting MOST, D-CAN and K-CAN protocols

B - Diagnostic via most bus, and have connection to A-interface via USB connection.

C - 20-pin cable for old models.

BMW ICOM A2+B+C Special Features Compared with BMW ICOM:

The modified BMW ICOM A2 for vehicles with OBD access receives a significantly more powerful processor and more storage capacity. Robust aluminium case will help to avoid damage when using in harsh environments.

To protect the most connector, the BMW ICOM B for vehicles with optical most access will be equipped with a soft cover made of rubber instead of the former plastic cap.

The BMW ICOM C for old series with a diagnostics socket will be additionally equipped with an approx. 20 cm long cable, which facilitates the connection of the BMW ICOM A2 and makes storage in the engine compartment easier.

GM scan tool


GM Tech2
is the same tester GM Technicians use to diagnose GM vehicles. The Vetronix Tech 2 comes with Authentic GM software and provides support for on-board diagnostics on all GM systems. With TIS2000, you can do programming for GM cars till year 2007. Tech2 Diagnostic Tool Highlights:
1.Support Car Models : GM/SAAB/OPEL/SUZUKI/ISUZU/Holden,while programming for GM cars till 2007.
2.Performs Functions such as Capture stored DTCs, Freeze Frame, and Failure Record for later review,etc.
3.It comes with CAN diagnostic interface module with which you can work on vehicles under OBD ,OBDII and CAN protocol.
4.The Tech 2 includes the the software which is put in the 32MB card.Each card contains one model,you can buy individually if want more.

GM MDI VS Tech2 in car coverage, function,performance

Since 2006, rumor has it that GM Tech2 scan tool will be replaced by GM MDI (Multiple Diagnostic Interface), a new piece of equipment coming out to work alongside the Tech 2, but today we still can find Tech 2 in GM forums, where drivers are hesitate between MDI and Tech2. Here I will analyze the difference between the two tools and reveal the reason why Tech2 is not be replaced.
Vehicle Coverage
GM Tech 2 is used on obd2 GM vehicles which mainly built from 1992 to 2011, while GM MDI supports vehicles from 1990 up to 2013. Now every vehicle for now on will be using GDS with the MDI that is why we said MDI is replacing the tech 2. However, Tech2 works with quite well with some SAAB cars due to its SAAB card, while a few SAAB owners said MDI not support their cars.
Function
MDI is a diagnostic and programming device. Apart from diagnosing 1990 to 2013 GM, Opel, Chevrolet and Saab, it also supports TIS2Web, GM Global Diagnostics System (GDS), SPS and MDI Manager Software, European Chevrolet offline programming, SPS programming on existing and future SGM vehicles, and will be able to do remote programming with the Tech 2 for all 2007 and previous vehicles in the near future. Using the GM MDI for programming can free up your Tech 2 for diagnostics and other tasks.
GM Tech 2 mainly supports diagnosing; with TIS 2000 CD in the package, it can also do programming. But it cannot program as many systems as GDI.
Communication
MDI works with a PC. It takes advantage of all those new PCs installed in the service bays under the Multiple PC Initiative and is able to communicate with a laptop via both USB and WiFi so that users can put MDI in a vehicle in the parking lot and communicate with it my PC.
Tech2 is a hand held device and communicates vehicles via USB cable, no additional PC is needed. It is very easy to carry and use.
Performance
The GM MDI offers faster programming speed at a lower cost. Depending on vehicle architecture (protocols/modules), the GM MDI can be 20-70% faster than the Tech 2. This helps alleviate vehicle battery drain problems during programming.

Tech 2 vs GM MDI



Thread: Tech 2 Scanner hand held or GM MDI?


GM Tech 2 Scanner hand held support more then Opel cars.
It support also Isuzu, Suzuki, GM and SAAB
Just changing the PCMCIA card or flash it the one you have if you have only one with the software for cars that you need.
But this tool cannot be used with GDS2 in newer cars models after 2008 ( here we are talking in newer cars as Insignia and Astra J not the models as Corsa D 2014 wich is still supportted by the Tech 2 hand held )

GM MDI can be used as Tech2 hand held in cars from 1997 till 2014 ( but models before 2008 ) using Tec2Win emulator and can be used with GDS2 in newer models cars as Insignia and Astra J
GM MDI doesn’t support Suzuki and SAAB

Both tools suport SPS Programming. But MDI is 20 to 70% faster compared to the Tech 2 for SPS programming, which helps alleviate battery drain on vehicles. This means flashing new ECU software is both quicker and more stable,for example, re-flashing an engine ECU using the Tech 2 could take up to 1 hour, with the MDI it’s just 10 minutes. You can therefore flash 6 cars with the MDI in the same time as it would take 1 with the Tech 2.

I’m also using a HQ OP-COM clone with the lastest version of softwear wich cover even Corsa D 2014 made in february 2014 ( it covers allmost all functions of Tech2 for cars between 2004 – 2013 and better connection for cars before 1997 even it is the same tool revision B hardwear ) and an AVDI ( using Tech2win and GDS2 )

If you need a better cover my advise to you is to buy a GM MDI but the GM Tech2 hand held it is still good

Anyway in the end it is your choice-this is only my opinion
Good luck

FAQ: GM MDI vs Tech 2
1) Will I need a subscription to use the MDI?

yes currently you need seperate subscriptions for tech2win(tech 2 emulator)
gds2 (newer diagnostic application for global a cars and up) and sps (reflashing)
2) Will I be able to scan and tune without a subscription?

no
3) should I sell my tech 2 and buy a MDI?

they can pry mine from my dead lifeless fingers
4) are they cloning GM MDI’s or are all the GM MDI’s I see for sale the real deal?

I have seen clone mdi’s make sure its from a reputable source
I have zero experience with the GM MDI so any education is very much appreciated
