This… and that’s why I’m asking. No one tried it but it’s dangerous… Any evidence for this statement? Any evidence that someone bricked their module with MX+ ? Or no one tried it? I did find nothing. Hard to believe there is no adventurer in the world who would try this No need for offence, just a discussion. I’m not justify anything, I will simply return it, that’s not a problem but on their site there is nothing about you can’t program with MX+. They says basically it’s the best adapter for professionals and support programming… The guide also recommend Viaken which is 2x cheaper so I wonder if EX is better.
@CyanLabs, this is an argument. If it’s much slower than it’s a reason to not buy it. The more time needed for flash the bigger change something screw up. Still I wonder where is the 150$ price tag for MX+ if you can’t do this.
Bluetooth is not designed to write large amounts of data reliably and quickly. USB interfaces are far more reliable. Interruption of this process will brick your unit. Even if it works fine, it won’t be recommended as this is just survivorship bias.
Full information is available here on the differences, as you’ll see the latency is 10x slower using the mx+, and max transfer rate isn’t even measured:
Do you know if my Ford VCMII would work, or anywhere that would tell me? I work for ford and I use this adaptor every day for anything that requires a scantool IDS or FDRS I would assume is has all the necessary software and hardware to work. I use it with FORScan all the time. Not sure if the OBDLink ex has anything extra specifically for these purposes of programming the calibration files for the apim.
