Buy xtool x100 pad2 or obdstar tool

obd2lily | 18 November, 2018 06:27


XTOOL X100 PAD2 or obdstar tool (X300 PRO3 and obdstar dp plus). Which one has better coverage and support?

How come obdstar products are more popular and has frequent updates but xtool products are slow in updates and least popular?

Buy xtool x100 pad2 or obdstar tool?


Here are the answers:

PS: Quoted from ray-ray.

ray-ray answers the 1st question: Story is obdstar and xtool was a joint company for many years. They play a game chicken or the egg who came first? Obdstar start the company in 2007 and xtool in 2010. Once again who came first chicken or the egg? I’ve been working for free for 6 month now for Xtooltech.

ray-ray answers the 2nd question: If you look at old post Xtooltech had no sale in china or on eBay. I ask member here on the forum if anyone used ps80 or PS90 PRO little to no feedback. I ask my Chinese broker to look and buy a unit for me to test. They refuse to sell to any Chinese broker. That was perfect solution I want to come out with something new with a company that was will to bring in engineers to the USA. The company was part of Obdstar that did most of their sales in commodities. After the break up they focus on heavy duty diagnostics. I went to sema last year in Las Vegas, next to sema there was diagnostics show call apex. There I meet the company and there engineers, I made a deal that day. Xtooltech learn that day that there was too much competition in diagnostics, and very little in immobilizer. I have work on making the tool better, I have not stop.

My goal is to keep developing and improving their tool (there is no money Xtooltech is paying me). Ken the owner has tried to pay me for my work and I have refuse. My mission is to make it a great tool.. what is my reward to be remember.

Xtool ps80 or ps90 or Pad2?
Xtool ps80: not sold in China.
Xtool PS90: recently starts to authorize the Chinese dealer to sell.
Xtool Pad2: The authorized Chinese dealer has stock, it is working and cheaper. The users from Brazil, Mexico, Argentina very use Xtool Pad2 and give good feedback (Read posts: Xtool Pad2 feedback and Xtool PS90 Vs PS80 Vs AutoProPad /Lite)

I reached their customer service in China about the CReader. They told me this CReader is powerful but generic, and it should be more than enough for general DIY usage. BUT If a dedicated Porsche scanner is really preferred, they have some $1000+ version tools. The funny thing is iCarScan X431 is only marketed overseas, not in Chinese market. iCarScan is not listed on Launch website at all.


As far as I know, ICARSCAN is a product customized by OBD2TOOL at LAUNCH. In China, OBD2TOOL is the only designated ICARSCAN distributor. LAUNCH provides after-sales service for this product. ICARSCAN includes all functions of LAUNCH X431 EASYDIAG 3.0 and supports full system. You can communicate with automotive’s OBDII socket via BlueTooth with an Android IOS smartphone, to achieve full systems and full function diagnosis, include reading/ clearing trouble codes, data stream, actuation test , adaptation, ECU coding & programming, oil reset, other special function, etc. Creader VIII does not support these special features.


I recommend that you buy icarscan on Obd2tool website. They are cheap, shipping is fast, and after-sales service is also very good. I have been using it for a year and there is no problem with the quality of the product.

Autel Maxisys Elite vs Autel Maxisys MS908P

obd2lily | 11 September, 2018 10:55

To compare this product with its rival brands, let’s take an example of Autel Maxisys Pro MS908p.

This Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P offers ECU coding, programming, and extensive coverage.

But, a few users have complained that it loses communication with the Audi and VW car models.

In addition, if you select an option, it will display — your vehicle doesn’t support this function. This scan tool also provides frequent connection errors.

Thus, you will eventually have an utterly disappointing and frustrating experience.

However, the main difference between the Autel Maxisys is the CPU. The CPU of the Autel Maxisys Elite is NVIDIA Tegra Quad-Core Processor 1.8GHz.

While The Autel Maxisys Pro MS908p has the Samsung Exynos Quad-Core Processor 1.4GHz.

Thus, if you are looking for a reliable automotive scanner that’s worth your investment, then do not hesitate to buy Autel Maxisys Elite. This brilliant tool will always offer you a fast and excellent performance.


But if you don’t care much about the speed ,Obd2 tool Autel Maxisys Pro MS908P is also a great choice for you.


Super fast diagnosis
Auto-Vin Technology
Battery Recharge
Extensive Vehicle Coverage
Smart Screen
Sufficient Storage Capacity
Autofocus Camera
Easy Printing
High-Level Configuration
Compact and Light


The Maxisys Elite is not suitable for the low-end mechanics as the operational procedures are quite complicated. It mainly targets professionals in Auto-repairing and Garage Shops.
It is a high-end product and is not affordable to everyone who would want to use.



Mangoose Pro GM II Diagnostic & Programming FAQs

obd2lily | 07 September, 2018 21:27

Here are a lot of questions and answers of Mangoose Pro GM II (the dealer or the copy), including software compatible (Tech2Win and GDS2), comparison with GM MDI & Tech 2 & Snap On Solus, diagnostic & programming & reprogramming issues….

I prefer Mangoose Pro II because of price…what do you think..will it work with my corsa d without problem? Or GM MDI better?

GM Mangoose PRO only for Opel/Vauxhall/GM with Tech2Win and GDS2.
Full coverage diagnostic and SPS programming
GM MDI can be use as a passthru for other software too
This is one of the difference
Both are good

I really just want to know what software and equipment I need to get me going with the GM Cars I actually have for diagnostics and programming.

GM Tech2 scanner or Tech2 software can used with gds2 or mvci, genuine is little high, but cheaper you can get from chine,
other is Mongoose Pro GM II, depend what exactly you want to do.

Is this Mangoose Pro GM 2 that is listed on Drew’s website?

Yes, this is the same as the Mongoose Pro GM2.

Can you buy the china clone of Mangoose GM2? If so, how much are they?

I bought mine for 70usd off obd2tool.com

Will this interface perform diag. and programming on GM Global A vehicle (with SPS and GDS2)

Yes, the Mongoose Pro GM II will work with SPS, GDS2 and Tech2Win.

Is the MongoosePro GM II compatible with “Data Bus Diagnostic” Tool software?

Drew Tech has stated that as of early March 2015, the Mongoose Pro GM and the CarDAQ-M are both compatible with GM’s “Data Bus Diagnostic” Tool software.

When using Mangoose Pro GM II to SPS programming, does it program at the same speed as the GM MDI?

The MongoosePro appears to flash as quickly as the MDI.
The MongoosePro GM is definitely quicker than the Tech 2.

The MDI cost 4x more than the MongoosePro GM II but it is not 4x faster.

I have TIS2WEB, Tech2WIN, GDS2 & MDI. Is the MongoosePro GM II plug and play or does it needs to be configured?

The MangoosePro GM II is plug and play. Make sure to install the Tech2Win driver if you want to use the application.

Can this product be used as a replacement for mdi? Used for Tech2win and gds2?

MongoosePro GM II is compatible with Tech2win and GDS2 software for scan tool diagnostics, and it will flash GM-vehicles.

The MDI is a separate tool that is also compatible with Tech2win and GDS2.

Yes, the MongoosePro GM II is a replacement for the MDI.

Both tools do flashing.

Also, both tools require a subscription

Can you guide me the way to install Mangoose GM software?

First thing you need to do with this setup is access the Tech2Win driver settings.

Next trick I think is how to get security access.

In detail…

Can the MDI do more than Mongoose Pro GM II can?

I already have a Tech 2 and a GM subscription and I need to be able to do the newer GM’s. Is there any reason not to buy this instead of the MDI? Will I be missing anything?

The Mongoose Pro GM II ALMOST does everything the MDI does. Currently that is:
– Module reflashing with SPS
– Diagnostics with Tech2Win software
– Diagnostics with GDS2 software.

UPDATE: The GDS2 software package includes the data bus diagnostic tool. Using the data bus diagnostic tool, the MDI will allow you to see voltage levels on the data bus, the Mongoose will not. The Mongoose will run the data bus diagnostic tool, but only partially.
Bosch corporate provides no support for installation and use of the MDI with GM software.
Drew does.
This is the big price difference.

Which tool do you recommend performing “advanced functions” on GM Vehicles? The cars I have are a 2003 Monte Carlo SS, and a 2009 Cadillac STS.

In order to perform “advanced functions” on GM Vehicles you are going to need something that talks with all the computers on the GM Vehicle.

The ones that I know of that do this are:

1) GM Tech 2 (will handle everything including programming the computers “updating calibrations”) This tool is being phased out but it’s still supported until they can get the MDI fully operational. Either way this works Stand Alone without a Laptop/PC.

2) GM MDI (Some say there are limitations with some model years but others say it’s better since the updates) Of course using Tech2Win to mimic what the GM Tech 2 does) – This performs like a J2534 Programmer as a Pass Thru Device. DrewTech and companies like Ease Diagnostics make J2534 Pass Thru Devices that will do this as well. And they sell their own flavor of Diagnostics Scan Software. Keep in mind only the GM stuff will do EVERYTHING for GM Vehicles.

3) Snap On Solus (This will do a lot not only on GM Vehicles but others as well. And it can do some of the advanced functions like Automated Brake Bleed on the ABS unit just like the GM Tech 2 and GM MDI) – Keep in mind there are many functions that the Snap On won’t do. The Tech 2 and MDI will allows you the option to access and control everything on GM Vehicles.

4) Mongoose Pro GM II (It can do things as GM MDI does.) Even the cheap Mangoose China clone is able to recover and reprogram modules perfectly and works with the newer h***ed 2017 GDS2!!!

In summary, Magoose Pro GM II features:

Plug and play: yes!

GM diagnostics and programming: confirmed!

Module recover and reprogramming: confirmed!

SPS programming speed: fast!

“Data Bus Diagnostic” Tool software: compatible!

Tech2win, GDS2, SPS: compatible!

Mongoose Pro GM II ALMOST does everything the MDI does!

ICarScan X431 Tool Available again

obd2lily | 18 August, 2018 08:00


It’s back! And it appears they now have software for your iPhone (besides the already available Android software.)

It’s been NLA for a while – but today on FaceBook they announced it was back with a new one. You can find it at: https://www.obd2tool.com/goods-5052-Launch+X431+iCarScan+Bluetooth+Diagnostic+Scanner+for+Android.html

What’s it do? Probably everything that Durametric Pro does for a fraction of the price, with unlimited number of cars – and software for LOTS of other car manufacturers. A much more universal tool, having detailed diagnostics for our Cayennes. Cost – $158. With a choice of 5 car manufacturers software included. It uses the “Launch” software package – and they are a very well known maker of high-price diagnostics tools.

I own a Durametric. I haven’t used it in about a year – since I got the ICARSCAN.

ICarScan is much easier to use than the Durametric since it works with my Android smartphone, no need to boot up a computer and plug it into the computer. It connects via Bluetooth to the phone. I carry it in the Cayenne since it’s tiny and can be used anytime I have my phone along (about 100% of the time.) So far I haven’t found anything I can’t do with it that could be done with the Porsche Piwis ii. Doesn’t mean there isn’t – but I haven’t found it yet. It resets all the different service reminders. Resets adaptatations. Reads out real-time values and can plot them. Can read and clear codes stored in any of the vehicle modules.

DISCLAIMER: I get nothing for posting this except hoping to encourage the company to continue producing it, since that means there will be software updates for the one I already own. I like it. I think it’s good value. YMMV – but I don’t think so.

ADDITIONAL INFO: (05/05/17) People have reported that the iOS application apparently is difficult to impossible to get working. Before buying Launch X431 Scan Tool – if all you have is an iPhone – I’d suggest reading the thread and talking to some of the people who have tried it on iOS. Other people have mentioned success or difficulty getting the Android application working. I suspect part of the problem is the number of versions of Android on the user market. If you’re using an Android phone, or tablet – it might be worth checking or asking who got it working with what. I also should note – it appears I’m running an earlier version of the software on my Android phone (Droid-Turbo-II) and tablet (Verizon Ellipsis-7). I have not tried downloading the new version since I don’t like to muck about with a working thing. Again – check and ask people what works if you have a concern. My final warning – communications with the vendor are almost non-existent. When I first got mine (about a year ago) I emailed them about a problem getting it to install on my tablet (which apparently isn’t listed as compatible with the software at the Google store) – and got a few brief replies. Since then – I’ve emailed asking about renewing my subscription – and have gotten no answer. Despite my “subscription” expiring – the software I originally downloaded (5 vehicle brands and the other free stuff) continues to work. It has also updated the firmware on my dongle despite my subscription being expired. What I have not done is open the store feature of it to see if there is a subscription renewal option there. I may do that sometime. Or not. Right now – it’s working fine for me.



How to Add BMW F30 2012 FEM Spare Key with Auro OtoSys IM100/IM600

Note: Both IM100/IM600 has BMW FEM/BDC capability. IM600 is capable of BMW CAS4 and Mercedes-Benz key programming, while IM100 does not. If you are interested in IM600, please contact:

Main Steps:

Check key status

Backup EEPROM data

Learn Key


Step 1: Check key status

Disassemble FEM/BDC module

Connect with FEM module, Key Programmer IM100 and UP200 programmer

Select IMMO function->BMW->System selection->FEM/BDC immobilizer

1-1 1-2

Make sure the engine is off


Check Key Status


Put the tested key/working key into induction antenna


Put another keys into induction antenna one by one to check key status. New keys are not locked

Step 2: Backup EEPROM

Back to BMW menu, select Smart Mode

Auro IM100 detect current immobilizer system is FEM/BDC

Reading vehicle information and ecu information

Backing up coding files

Going to modify EEPROM data automatically:
1. Please disassemble the EEPROM chip and connect the programmer
2. The FEM module is chip M9S128 and the BDC module is chip M95256
3. If you operate the EEPROM with clamp, you should turn off the +12V power first!

Backup EEPROM data automatiocally
Automatically modified EEPROM data successfully
The backup path is /mint/sdcard/scan/UserData/autobackup/
EEPROM chip operated successfully! Please install the chip back to the ECU module

Step 3: Learn Key


The programming is about to start, make sure the supply voltage exceeds 13V and is stable.

1.Please make sure that the vehicle power is ok
2.Please make sute that the OBD diagnostic cable is correctly connected
3. Please make sure that the power icon on the top right corner of the Auro im100 diagnostic tool correctly displays the voltage.


Programming key in procedure


Going to restore  EEPROM data automatically:
1. Please disassemble the EEPROM chip and connect the programmer
2. The FEM module is chip M9S128 and the BDC module is chip M95256
3. If you operate the EEPROM with clamp, you should turn off the +12V power first!

Restoring EEPROM data automatically
EEPROM chip operated successfully. Install the chip back to ECU module


The restoration coding file is about to start

1.Please make sure that the vehicle power is ok
2.Please make sute that the OBD diagnostic cable is correctly connected
3. Please make sure that the power icon on the top right corner of the diagnostic tool
correctly displays the voltage.

Restore coding data files.



1.Before the key can be written and cleared, the password must be read out first.
2.Before the key can be written or cleared, the corresponding key position must be selected first.

Do you have a working key? Yes.

Insert working key into emergency start coil, select Read password


Read password, DME, ISN code success


Insert a new key into induction coil, select a key position and press Write Key


Key learning has 4 steps,
The first step of authenticating key information is in progress
The seconds steps if writing data into key is in progress
The third step of resetting ecu is in progress
The fourth step of verifying key information is in progress


Write key success.

Put the key close to start induction coil, press and hold the ingnition for 10s.
After key learning is completed, the key can be normally used.


You can program next key with Auro OtoSys IM100 from OBD2TOOL

When the number of keys is greater than three, the newly added keys may have no remote control function
due to the imitation of BMW system.
