MicroPOD II function:
- It can be used as diagnostic and programming tool by the dealerships. It replaces your StarMobile, StarScan, and wi-TECH POD, and enables your technicians to increase their productivity and provide world-class diagnostic services to your customers.
- A separate Tech Authority Subscription is required to access to Module Re-Flash Programming, TSBs, wiring diagrams, and repair information.
Trying to find one micropod II that would work properly with DRB Emulation. Especially with Chrysler Crossfire.
Credit to Radius from Mhhauto. You are at your risk.
Test 3 different micropod interfaces. 2 devices did not work with DRB III emulation at all, no matter which vehicle. The 3rd device worked and it worked on Chrysler Crossfire – access to ALL modules.
I think the 2 devices which did not work are missing hardware for K-Line or some such.
The device verified working is an OFFLINE ONLY version of witech micropod 2, but I only use it for diagnostics, not for programming as I do not have a TechAuthority account. So if you need one for online use this is not the unit to buy.
