INPA K-CAN vs. D-can vs. BMW ICOM Cables

Here we discuss the differences of K can vs D can cables vs Icom emulators, ideas of what the hardware&software, protocol, car and function differences.

 

BMW tools ICOM(icom, icom a2, icom next) INPA K+DCAN cable
DCAN K-line
Cars New and old BMW vehicles:E & F series up to 2017

 

Old BMW E series (1998 – 2008) 
Cars after 03/2007 Cars prior to 03/2007:K-Line was used from 1997 onwards by BMW replacing the old L-Line up consistently up until the end of 2006
Software Updating continuously:ISTA-D 4.05.32 ISTA-P 3.61.5

Speed best speeds should be through an ICOM with the MOST adapter theoretically faster, but in reality, it isn’t actually much better speeds
Stability a lot more stable esp. when it comes to programming less stable less stable
Diagnostic Yes Yes Yes
Programming/Flashing used with diagnosis and also programming not safe to program modules not safe to program modules
Coding Read/Write zero issues R/W with a K&DCAN cable R/W with a K&DCAN cable
Protocol fast protocol, allows to secure flash software and read/write access the entire memory slow serial protocol, flashing would take ages and errors could occur. Also, not possible to access the entire memory slow serial protocol, flashing would take ages and errors could occur. Also, not possible to access the entire memory
Similar to Similar to JTAG programming Similar to RS232 bootloader access Similar to RS232 bootloader access
Tips BMW ICOM can be used with diagnosis and also programming. While DCAN cable can do all of those it is not safe to program modules because there have been a lot of cases where modules were bricked. You can only get your 1B file using FSC generator with ICOM on an E series car but cannot generate 1B file using a DCAN cable since it will give you an error. There is another way though of getting your 1B file without using an ICOM on an E series through the USB port inside your glovebox accessing the hard drive directly. Rather than going through all those stuff, it is more convenient to just buy the lifetime FSC code and be done with it. 

You program a module if you want to update the software to a newer one or if you a retrofitting a new module and want to flash it. ICOM is a lot more stable than dcan cable when it comes to programming. And you are right there are modules that takes hours to finish and any interruption in the process will surely brick that module. You can get a cheap china clone ICOM but finding a refutable vendor selling a good working ICOM is not easy.

BMW ICOM Next Clone Working Experience

Have some words about my new toy BMW ICOM Next A+B+C diagnostic tool from China.

bmw-icom-next-review-1

I am using 2017.3 bmw software ISTA-D 4.04.12 ISTA-P 3.60.2.001 Windows 7

 

i first went to ICOM Next with my e38. This car was bought new in 2001 and i only have 65k miles on it but the dash was always lit up like a Christmas tree! since day one this car had electrical issues and every time the dealership said they fixed it, the same issue would pop up… the icom next helped me diagnose the problem and fixe it, with 1 hour!!

 

Then, i took my 2014 (f31) 328ix sport wagon, now this was the cool stuff… i had all these special codes to do some really trick stuff to the electronics like using the key fob to close my rear hatch, roll up the windows and sunroof, as well as fold mirrors when i lock the car. all my phone contacts in my heads up display … icom next is really a cool guy, very laid back and not pretentious whatsoever.

 

And, my friends 2011 128i also benefited a lot. It had some electrical issues, causing the radio not to work and the speedometer, RPM, and gas gauge to suddenly drop and rise while driving. After a quick diagnostic test, I needed a new battery and the entertainment computer system had to be recoded. Within a day, all the electrical problems were fixed!!

 

 

In summary,

 

ICOM Next is faster than the old bmw icom. It is also better built IMHO.

And 2017 Next is WIFI available also.

It handles multiprogramming and coding quite nicely.

Gets the job done much faster if flashing the complete vehicle.

 

Another benefit to Next will be compatibility for future cars.

In two or three years there will be a new ICOM released, that will be probably better etc. That’s how things work.

 

So far, I have had the BMW ICOM Next A+B+C no issues.
