ELM compatible interfaces phasing out.
From Feb 2018 we will be phasing out Chinese ELM cloned interfaces, from mid April we expect to only have genuine ELM327 interfaces for sale. There will be a price increase (the price of an ELM327 chip costs more than the micro processors used in the Chinese clones)
The reason for this is the cloned interfaces do not support all AT commands so fail on some late model vehicles. Also the late Fiat group models need reliable ELM connections that we believe will only be possible with genuine ELM 327 tools.
The genuine ELM327 will be compatible with more software than the cloned device and will be the only option available with our ELM based tools. Also the genuine ELM327 will have a 3 year warranty which is not possible with cloned devices.
We have received our first batch of the new iCarsoft tools for Land Rover and Mercedes. LR V1.0, LR V2.0 MB V1.0 and MB V2.0
More coverage and functions compared to the old tools, i930 ,LR II, i980 and MB II,
