What diagnostic adapter do you prefer (Read 10626 times)

Tell you what adapter people use most. Here are views after the vote in the forum dedicated to all’s favorite adapter to share pros and cons and learn tips and tricks.

Here is my 2cents or 2.03cents Canadian on Diagnostic Interfaces.

DG Tech DPA4 or 4+: #2 Choice Metal case makes it durable (must use original USB cable to take advantage of USB port protection)

Nexiq USB Link: #1 Choice can also be used with toyota techstream and isuzu IDSS (Must be very careful to not break the usb port on older style)

Nexiq Magikey: Was the best back in the day (Need a PC with printer port to connect)

Nexiq LiteLink: Works with Snapon Modis (older J1708 Data Bus only)

Cummins Inline: RP1210a compliant for apps other than Cummins Insite (Doesnt work well with all rp1210a applications)

Movimento/Navlink: Only way to connect to TCU via IDS on Ford/Int LCF/CF Trucks??? (Freezes using servicemax on some laptops)

Navistar IC4: Small durable adapter (Bad customer support, hard to find drivers, USB cable is part of adapter)

Older PF-Diagnose adapter (B&B Electronics): Small durable adapter (serial cable connection)

Eaton Wireless: Long wireless range (intermittent data loss even at close range)

Noregon DLA: #3 Choice alternative to Nexiq and Dearborn (Large size/odd shape)

Caterpillar ET: Only way to connect to some offroad equipment with CDL data Bus (Need PC with printer port)

This is just my opinion on the adapters above based on personal use.

There are other adapters available and other peoples results/opinions may differ.

How to use Nexiq with John Deere Service Advisor software

Hi, I have two scanner, John Deere EDL v2 and Nexiq usb link. EDL connection with service advisor is perfect. But with usb link, it doesn’t work. The only way where i have connection with usb link is in GetEcuId.

But finally I got Nexiq usb link to work with Service Advisor software

Here is how to operate…

First, you must reflash your Nexiq with John Deere EDL firmware. When you do that, you\ll got EDL as connected device in device manager.

Find original firmware and save it (backup)
C:\NEXIQ\RP1210A\usblink.bin
In John Deere Service Advisor find EDL.bin
I do not remember where it location …
Copy and rename EDL.bin to usblink.bin
replace original C:\NEXIQ\RP1210A\usblink.bin
Go to C:\NEXIQ\Test
open binload.exe
check checkbox – Enable automatic USB-Link firmware update
open CommCheck.exe
firmware will be update
and Nexiq name will be changed – now EDL-Link

Please take a note, that firmware reflash is possible only with original nexiq or HQ nexiq clone, LQ clones can’t be reflashed, even with newer nexiq firmware

It depends on what clone you have, my clone get all updates,works with OBD volvo,and have no issue.

Second, you must modify standard heavy duty diagnostic scanner Nexiq 9 pin deutsch cable. just simply revert positions of CAN lines. There is two pairs of CAN lines. Here is instruction and picture how to do that here
