Performance Tested Results
1.By far,Ford vcm 2 was the costive but most stable OEM diagnostic scanner tool to use.
2.Features Testing Sharing
Portuguese,Slovak Multi-Languages available—yes !
4.Used IDS software, provide full dealer diagnostic capabilities for most 16 pin cars 1996-2015, including for all new 2013 vehicles—True !
5.Easy to use, communicated via OBDII port.
Personally Suggestion For Ford VCM II Diagnostic Tools
1. Only for Ford Mazda cars,not for trucks,if can support both cars and trucks more better
2. Dont support online updating,currently,only support Ford IDS V101 and Ford IDS V94,if can support latest IDS software,it will be more attractive.
3.Cant install Ford Mazda software in the same PC and to use for Mazda car,need to downgrade software to v94 first,this part can also be improved.
