Man after reading this post, I am so tempted to get one of these. Where did you get the security software online and how easy was it to crack?

Thanks for posting.

I purchased the same exact kit from alibaba but from another seller, I think. It worked once then every single time afterwards kept giving me a "connect Candi module" or "Candi module not detected".

I sent the VCI, Candi, and cord back for fix over a month ago and have had a hard time getting timely answers from Steven Xiang.

Anyone else getting the constant "Candi" error? He also promised me a dongle for TIS, but still no joy.

Steven Xiang, I remember I messaged him probably 4-5 times and never got a response so I didn't by the kit from him. My kit didn't come with a dongle. I did 4 Saab's today at out local meet and worked on all.

North Shore. They were not so bad the firs time I spoke to them, but after Saab closed up for good they jacked their prices up. The tech was a bit of a jerk too, but after I had one thing done there and spoke with him for 5 minutes he seemed to warm up and be fairly knowledgeable. I think it's the service writers, who work mostly on commission, that have gotten greedy and jacked up the prices. I am tempted to buy a clone Tech II just so I don't feed their greediness anymore....

Still holding up. I just read live readings earlier and it didn't have an issue with that.

Same. I'm trying to find it, but without it the Tech2 clone is a $400 paper weight. I just got a quote from Cathy and I'm seriously considering buying one.

I just filed a claim today against them. They pictured and listed the wall plug and USB dongle but never received it. Then she told me they aren't included. So I'm going to try and get some money back so I can make a purchase of a wall plug.

Just did an 07 today. Was having an issue where is alarm just kept going off and no idea why. He wanted his alarm shut off completely. Took a couple tries and different modules but I got it off

As long as the thing works. I'm sure you can get a USB dongle and wall plug that would work with it at your local electronics supply outlet.
