I picked up my T2 clone from OBD2tool.com paid $295 for it. This was to find problems on my 07 LBZ. I hooked it up when I got it with the CANDi module and was able to read engine data. Then the next day it didn't work. The CANdi module was bad. It took almost a month to get them to send a new module, but they did.
After playing with it, while it does give some valuable data, the data list is different than on the earlier models. For instance, it does not show injector pulse width on my LBZ, but shows it on my LB7. I hadn't thought to try and log on as an earlier model to see if it would show it. I also have not been able to connect it to my computer. The current issue is that I don't have a driver for the USB adapter. The other issue is that the software want you to select which serial port you are using, but the USB ports are not an option I can select. I would like to get logged on, as I would like to program my spare ecm.

Do you have a set of factory manuals? I have the paper set from Helm that I bought when I got the truck new but have decided it's time to quit lugging a ton of manuals around when I need to research stuff. The info you get from the Tech2 is great but it really comes together when you run it against the scan tool data lists in the manual.

Do you have the latest pcard software? I think 33.04 or something like that. I bought an MDI as I thought it would be easier than using a serial cable to program. Do you have a subscription to tis2web or just using the local database on the older software for programming? You are in az and I am in north phoenix, maybe we could try my mdi and see if would work. I have never tried to program, but assume it can't be too hard.

It looks like the same site that I used to order my TechII in 2014. I opened the link and logged in using my old login and it came up with the info on my previous orders.
