We’ve updated the firmware on our cables to provide faster communication and more robust performance. Our testing has shown a 28% increase in flashing speeds. This means less time wasted on the dyno waiting for a flash to upload. Additionally, the updated firmware fixes a critical bug in the original firmware. This bug has been proven to cause issues when flashing some newer DMEs which use the DCAN communication protocol (i.e. MS45, MSS60, MSS65, MSV70, etc.). Using cheaper cables for these can result in a bricked DME. The stock firmware which is on every K+DCAN cable sourced from China has these issues.
Every K+DCAN OBD2 USB cable is tested to ensure it passes our quality standards before shipping it to you. Almost all sellers source their cables from China (including us!). Our experience has shown that we get at least one dead cable every few batches. Not all sellers can guarantee the quality of their cables, especially if they’re drop-shipping them from another supplier. We ship everything direct from our office here in the United States.
* If your vehicle is pre-2001, you might need an additional cable which converts from the OBD2 plug (16-pin) to BMW’s round plug (20-pin). This is especially true in the E36, E39, and E46 chassis. In these early-model OBD2 vehicles, BMW actually used both plugs. The OBD2 plug is inside the cabin usually near the driver’s feet. The round OBD1 plug is under the hood usually on the passenger side. For data logging, you can usually use just the OBD2 port. However, if you plan to read/flash your DME, you might need to use the round plug under the hood. You can readily find these cables online by searching for “BMW OBD2 16 pin to 20 pin adapter cable”.
