Well after I bought two "Bad Clone" devices I need help. Can someone direct me to source for a good reader that will make Forscan happy? I'm anxious to start personalizing my car.

I'm interested in hearing from someone who recently purchased their reader. These days with clones of clones getting a real compatible device is pretty hard.

Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply fastpakr.
Good info but I should have added that I'm looking for a USB connected device.
Some people have good luck with bluetooth but I haven't.
I sure don't want to brick my car.

That's actually the one I meant to buy when I ordered mine. Just wasn't paying attention and grabbed the Bluetooth version by mistake. It's worked great so far, but the USB version sounds perfect for you.
