Generic J2534 device support

For many years we supported only DiCE units in VDASH for diagnostics and ECU programming. DiCE hardware is well-tested and proven. Genuine DiCE are perfectly good, some Chinese clone may suffer from quality issues - leaving certain VDASH operations impossible or unstable.

These days we're bringing the support of generic J2534 devices into VDASH. There're plenty of various devices on the market, best one are J2534-devices compatible with Super J2534 or Mongoose JLR.

Another option is VXDIAG (VCM II - Rotunda Diagnostics or compatible). The basic diagnostics seem to work, the DIM languages have been tested too. The overall functionality is briefly the same, still we do see heavy performance penalties (e.g. P3 CEM pin decoding is many tíme slower than technially feasible, like with DiCE or Super J2534 / Mongoose JLR).

Currently (June-2023) we support the following J2534 hardware:

Super J2534 / Mongoose JLR:

Windows 64-bit drivers: J2534_Driver_x64.msi
Windows 32-bit drivers: J2534_Driver_x86.msi
