Medium Quality FLY version with red relays (dual PCB)

The PCB of this kind Ford VCM is different with the original.Can't be used with the original software of Ford VCM.Metal or plastic casing with production date stickers.
Works only with modified FLY soft and FLY crack(_VCM.bfc 617KB for Ford IDS and MAZDA, _VCM.bfc 1907KB for JLR ).Comes with software version: IDS V80 ,JLR V130,MAZDA V79 but most likely they are modified old versions (V75,V128???) not confirmed yet Wink

Comes with FLY Swich as well so all makes can be installed on same system, not recommended for Ford and Mazda(system conflicts).

Ford IDS, Mazda
Not suitable for module programming (can corrupt/lock PCM,TCM), may work with other modules but you using it on your own risk Smile should work with DPF,key coding,injector coding.They have a habit of re-flashing PCM when you choose Self Test option.

JLR
Need more info about programming and coding possibility???

Just like to add that if you have communication problems, check the soldering in the USB modem (the one with REAL chip) mine was loosing communication and I found problem with soldering there.

Thanks for the pictures. I'm thinking of getting the one from ADK, but have a couple questions maybe u know the answers Smile
- Can the firmware ever be updated on it? I have the original GNA600 fro Honda and seems theres a new update everytime a new version came out.
- Can we use the V80 or V81 (or newer) with it?


thanks

As I've said in the first post, update is available for good quality units.But always ask before you order anything from any china shop.

I've seen licence for V80(Ford) somewhere on this forum, V81 as far as I know is still not cracked.
