Q1: Why i need to buy Kess v2 and Ktag ecu programmer together?
A2: 1. Ktag and Kess V2 share the same software for reading/writing ECU Engine Data, but they bear the different ways to read ECU data.
2. Kess V2 is a ecu programming tool that is perfect for OBD use;While Ktag is perfect for Jtag, BDM and all Boot application (tricore and ST10).
3. With Kess V2, you program directly through the OBD port of the vehicle;While with Ktag, you need to take aprt the ECU and open it, after you can make the read/write operation.
4. Many ECU had the advantage that can be read and write from OBD port (so KESS V2 is perfect),but there are lots of ECU that need to disassemble from the car and open, and this is the case for all the ecu that need to be programmed with Jtag, BDM and Boot protocols, so Ktag is needed.
