(with Tech 2 Go-between)

 

That is,

If you want to do ECU programming or SPS programming, you’d better have a GM MDI interface with Global TIS.

 

If you need program new keys (only online with GDS2 and Tech2win), it depends.

If you have a new car or pickup truck after the year 2010, you have 3 options: MDI interface, Mangoose cable, Nano;

If you have an old car or pickup truck, you have one more option, Tech 2. That is, 4 options for the old GM vehicles: MDI, Mangoose, Nano and Tech 2.

 

If you want to have a diagnostic test on GM vehicles, you can have any tool with GDS2 or Tech2win or TIS2000. Clearly, all tools above can be used for GM diagnosis.

FVDI 2018 Review from Mhhauto.com

FVDI 2018 commander feedback from http://mhhauto.com/:

Friend bought from this reseller device, the device did not work, I opened the device and the inside of the tile is from version 2015,

he seller is a fraud

https://www.ebay.de/itm/KFZ-Diagnosegera...Sw9sZa-uEE

after that he initiated a dispute on Paypal and returned the devices to the seller,

Paypal refused his claim for money, left without a 500 euro and no device.

Be careful about which devices you are buying.

I bought it here and it's all right for the device right now.

How to install Ford IDS + Mazda IDS in one PC

Here,we have 3 ways to install Ford IDS and Mazda IDS in a computer/laptop:

Option 1:

One native install (e.g. Mazda IDS) and the other one on VMWare

Option 2:

Install and boot multiple operating systems using something like Boot It Bare Metal from Terabyte. Btw, I can recommend this one as it works like a charm. Never had any problems managing my partitions.

Option 3:

Have both in vmware –

you can find them on here as premade images just browse to automotive software forum then to vmware

using vmware is very easy and it has the advantage that if you mess up the program installation then you can just reload the image and be up and running in a few minuites

also with vmware you can stop it going onto the internet by disabling the VM network adapter, but still be on the internet with your computer so you can google the problem or find the file you need and then just drag and drop it inot the VM

VMWare 12.5.0 download:

pass: n8K684gE

it’s SCOTT’s work

IMPORTANT: the best way is to use VMware.

Some install both Ford and Mazda on real machine by install Mazda first, after that change the path of Mazda, then install Ford. But not successful by this method!
