Review wiTech MicroPod 2 Win7 Win10 Works Fine

Just ordered a Chinese clone Chrysler Micropod II (the SP271-C) and it has been working exactly like an OEM unit.

The provided software is the same as the Chrysler OEM software (verified with file size and md5 hash). This version must communicate to the witech server to verify valid serial number.

I don’t have experience with Windows XP. But this version of Witech works fine on Windows 7 and Windows 10.  (I did try an android ap called chrysler pin pull off google store that promised to get the pin via obd2 dongle but I couldn’t get it to work on mine but may work for others)

No errors so far and tested functions on 3 different vehicles. It has been confirmed working with unmodified software Chrysler wiTech MicroPod 2 (downloaded directly from Chrysler) and online (logged into TechAuthority). Not sure if it will be blacklisted or the firmware will be updateable with the next software release, but for now it works fine.

One vehicle i tested with: a 2014 dodge avenger …. just fine.

was able to flash a module update and program a new key with the unit.

try the emulator on: DRB III emulator confirmed working.

The witech micropod 2 on CnAutotool only works offline so non of the dealer facilities (no ecu updates/wiring diagrams/online manuals) but diagnostic tests and programing work fine
I have also uploaded pictures of the internals for those who are curious.
