BMW ICOM A2+B+C The Second Generation Diagnostic Interface

BMW ICOM A2+B+C is the second generation diagnostic interface for BMW ISTA system. Many people want to know its differences from the first generation BMW ICOM . Actually, it has only the hardware difference, no any new features. Icom A2 with new and fashionable design can avoid early breaking. The interface A2 supports MOST, D-CAN and K-CAN protocols. Interface B can diagnose via MOST bus, and has connection to A-interface via USB connection. Interface C is with the 20-pin cable for old models.

BMW ICOM A2 Specification:
1. The modified ICOM A2 for vehicles with OBD access receives a significantly more powerful processor and more storage capacity. Robust aluminum case will help to avoid damage when using in harsh environments.
2.To protect the MOST connector, the ICOM B for vehicles with optical MOST access will be equipped with a soft cover made of rubber instead of the former plastic cap
3. The ICOM C for old series with a diagnostics socket will be additionally equipped with an approx. 20 cm long cable, which facilitates the connection of the ICOM A2 and makes storage in the engine compartment easier.

For ICOM A2 , you can purchase it with only hardware. If you don't have software, then there are different versions of software and Hard Disk for option. But different hard disk with different version is with different price. If you want to buy it for any laptop, you need to purchase it with External HDD (Software ISTA/D(ISID 2.30) ISTA/P(ISSS 2.46)). If you have Dell E6420 or Dell D630 laptop, you can purchase the Internal HDD with latest version 2013.08(Software ISTA-D:2.37.12 ISTA-P:49.4.000)2013.06(Software ISTA-D:2.37.3 ISTA-P:49.4.000) or 2013.01 For Dell E6420 or Dell D630 (Software ISTA-D: 2.34.8 ISTA-P: 48.3.001). Usually we'd like to recommend the latest version to you.
