Will VXDIAG VCX NANO Ford work with Forscan Software?

As titled, Possible to run Forscan software on vxdiag vcx nano Ford interface?



Customer feedback:


This works well with ForScan. It allowed me to re-program the TPMS pressure setting on my 2017 Ford Transit 150 for the 18 inch tires that were installed as part of the VAN conversion.




I’m using an ancient cheap on netbook and VXDIAG VCX NANO for V114 Ford/V114 Mazda that I ordered directly from the manufacture’s website vxdiagshop.com  At about $89 it works flawlessly with Forscan and does both HS-CAN and MS CAN automatically. Just select j2534 for the connection type. I should note that I do not use the VXDIAG VCX with Ford IDS or any other program besides Forscan.

If you don’t mind spring for the extra $ I recommend the vxdiag. J2534 connection is the superior connection tech for Forscan. It’s faster, comprehensive functioning and as far as my experience just works.




I can add that regarding the VCX Nano for ford/mazda, I took mine apart and no bluetooth module is present. The bluetooth capabilities advertised on the main Allscanner site it not accurate. I can not speak for the WIFI version but I have the usb version and have used it with my 2003 Mazda 6 V6 and after installing the “pass-thru” driver (J2534) it works perfectly and fast with FORSCAN.



The VCX Nano I took apart seems to be a custom design to emulate in hardware part of the hardware/software of the VCM II but the driver is most important too. I did not take pictures but gently peeling down the stickers reveals 4 screws. Once inside it is a very simple board with a ST micro cortex M4 STM32F4 Series based micro controller doing the work. The FT serial to usb chip-set and some caps and a space that was blank for I assume either the WIFI or Bluetooth module. I googled the device and did see a Russian site where a guy took apart a VW version and it had more chips and and older generation micro-controller.
Soldering looks like reasonable quality surface mount and no hand work or redo’s.



First of all install VCXManager and this driver:


And second configure ForScan how this image:

Its run perfectly

Update your VCX manager and drivers to the latest version.
