SD C4 Plus WIFI working? Update with / Without Battery?

 

One user feedback: I recently purchased Chinese cloned SD Connect C4 DOIP to replace my broken C4. To my surprise the unit has been modified in a very strange way. There is NO WiFi card inside, therefore wireless connection is not possible no ! There is NO 6 batteries holder/compartment no . Batteries are necessary for firmware upgrade if needed.

 

 

In fact:

  1. SD Connect C4 DOIP supports WIFI setting.

Take obdexpress.co.uk for example, the engineer made a operation guide on how to set SD Connect C4 DOIP WIFI on WIN10 & WIN7.

 

  1. SD connect C4 Plus firmware update does not require battery installation as the older sd c4.

Take this user’s feedback for example: I take a risk from here, only the battery pack is missing but work ok. I have it over an year and have no problems.
