BMW INPA / Ediabas K+DCAN USB Interface
This Interface allows FULL diagnostic of BMW's build from 1998 - 2013
Some more detailed information:
Each and every OBD2 equipped vehicle is supported by this Interface.
There are only two exceptions to this, if you have an older vehicle with both, the OBD2 and the 20pin connector installed the 20pin connector must be used for factory diagnostic since the OBD2 connector will not be fully wired. (This is only the case for a very small number of vehicles manufactured at the time OBD2 became mandatory) The second exception are F series vehicles, this limitation is actually not caused by the Interface but by the older diagnostic software that does not officially support those vehicles.
Older 20pin vehicles:
E39 and up are fully supported as well - however please be aware that you will need an suitable OBD2 to 20pin adapter cable that is not included with this Interface and must be purchased separately
E34/E36/E38 vehicles are only partially supported, you won't be able to access all modules inside them, if you need full access to them please review our OBD/ADS Interface.
Latest F series vehicles:
The interface is still fully compatible with those vehicles, however they are not officially supported by the old Ediabas based diagnostic system / software.
Works with INPA, SSS, Progman and all other Ediabas handler based Software.
( All functions as in Omitec Interface )
The smallest, best looking & highest quality of it's kind.

Q: I have an older BMW with OBD2 Connector (16 pin) which uses K-Line - will this Interface work?
A: Yes this interface will also work on older OBD2 BMW's using K-Line, however there is a cheaper option for you - please check our other auctions. Also make sure to download / open and read the Application note regarding the backward compatibility of older, with K-Line equipped vehicles.
Q: I have an rather new BMW with OBD2 Connector which uses D-CAN can't I use a simple (cheap) Interface?
A: No, you need a interface which supports D-CAN such as the one offered in this auction, there is no K-Line available in the new cars anymore so you will not be able to communicate with the car using a K-Line only based Interface.
Q: How does this Interface work?
A: It's setup as a STD:OBD2 Interface and translates all commands / traffic to and from the D-CAN Bus.
Q: I have seen other auctions from other vendors for a higher / lower price, what's the difference ?
A: Usually the price and the quality - Since our Interfaces are assembled and tested to the highest quality standards, It's up to you (the customer) to compare price, product and terms and make your decision according to that.
Q: I have an very old BMW that have an 20pin OBD1 connector under the hood, can I use this interface?
A: Basically - yes, however you would need an OBD2 16pin female to OBD1 20pin adaptercable and certain cars would even require a real RS232 ADS Interface to gain access to all modules - given all that we do NOT recommend using this interface on OBD1 20 pin vehicles, please download / open and read the Application note regarding the backward compatibility of older, with K-Line equipped vehicles.
Q: How much is the shipping to my destination?
A: Worldwide shipping by Airmail is FREE of charge, however if you require courier service such as DHL there will be a surcharge depedning on the weight and your destination.
