VXDIAG NANO vs VCM II, Which better?

Recently, many complained their confusion to buy a diagnostic tool for Ford or Mazda, for there is a full chip high quality VCM II for nearly 180$ (SP177-C) and there is the new VXDIAG VCX NANO for only about 100$. The price difference is ridiculous and sellers claim they both do the same thing.

clone vcm 2 & original vxdiag come with the same software–> thus the same function & vehicle coverage & language support & O/S requirement

vcm ii – clone vs. vxdiag – original (different factories–> different brands&firmware–> different price: vxdiag usually cheaper)

User feedback:

I have a clone that works. The software is a bit of a hassle to install, but I picked up a cheap laptop on Craigslist to dedicate to the job.


Well I am going to chime in with my experiences,
I have 2 clone sets. One is hard wire and the other has the
wireless connection.


I recently bought one from this company. I bought the wifi model. I have not played with it much yet and have yet to get the wifi part to work. I was able to get the software loaded and operational. It took a few attempts to get it right. The link is for wifi compatible model but does not include the D-Link wifi modules. It is also needs a firmware update to use the current v97 IDS. If I bought it again, I would not buy the wifi module equipped version.
