Do Not Sell My Personal Information


Recommended Posts

I'm new to using Forscan and I'm in need of a good OBD 2 cable. Can someone recommend me one that will connect to a laptop please.

Thanks.

OBDLink EX is the one I’m using. More expensive than most but worth it in my opinion.

Yes seems to work now. Any reason you prefer that one over the tunnelrat device? 

I chose the OBDLink EX after reading through the recommended cables on the FORScan forums.

Tunnelrat is a very popular cable and less than a third of the price. The only advantage the OBDLink has over it is that it automatically switches between MSCAN & HSCAN.

So does the tunnelrat one 🙂 I have one, they do 2 versions, one with the switch, the other which I have is automatic and about £20. 

But thanks for your feedback, always good to know about alternative cables

OBDLink EX is best for the money, make sure you follow the instructions for set up and DON'T make any changes to any modules until you've downloaded and saved the standard configurations for any module you are going to adjust.
