In Sum:

Super ICOM Pro N3+=BWM special inspection+J2534+DOIP+WIFI

It covers all functions of N3, and both of them adapt original ICOM solution which allows firmware update from ICOM server. ICOM Next is a specific BMW dealer level diagnostic scanner. The clone uses different solution, so it cannot scan non-OBDII older models or motorcycles.

N3+ J2534 /DOIP one key switch function:

Super ICOM Pro N3 Plus can use the J2534 protocol to read through after switching with one key. It is compatible with the 6-pin and 14-pin CAN communication and the 7-pin K-line communication of the OBD port. It can use Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Honda, Land Rover and other special inspection software with J2534 interface.

N3+ can use DOIP network communication protocol after one-key switching, which can solve the problem that Volkswagen 5054 and Mercedes-Benz C4 cannot test new cars without DOIP.

NOTE:

  • For Mercedes- Benz:

It needs to activate J2534 authorization so far (free of charge before October 1st, 2023). Other vehicles do not need.

After activation, install J2534 switching software to work with.

(You can use J2534 switching software if you have. If not, contact us to help with remote installation and activation from the factory.)

Only after switching, then can use MB SD C4 Xentry software (newest version: 2023.06, item No. SS221-10 or SS221-A10B)

In short, for Mercedes- Benz, open authorization+ install J2534 switching software+ install Xentry software.
