Ford diagnostic tool review :
VCM 2 is more stable and good clone.
Full chip high quality VCM2. But be careful programming!

VCMII is just slightly more expensive then VXDIAG VCX NANO.As far as I know, it’s hard to find a good independent workshop there. There’s a few in RJ though
Vxdiag VCX NANO is a VCM emulator. You can not use use it for anything else. But you you use VCM II for Pass Thru for Xentry, HDS, TIS, GS2, JLR, Volvo, Nissan Consult and numerous other. Right people can flash it Maserati/Ferrari.
VCM 2 is the right choice, if you buy a good clone with a good serial.I can confirm this. Good pcb.

All Ford diagnostic tools above all share the same IDS software and functions. All work no issues in OBD II Scanner, key programming, ecu programming/reprogramming. But clearly, they are different from the software version, firmware quality, stability and speed… the PRICE tells. You will get what you pay for. And yes, you need LUCK with items from China.
