HIM HDS does not contain i-HDS and J2534 Rewite program. 

HDS can’t access new Honda IMMO anymore. You will need i-HDS installed.

The J2534 Rewrite software is meant for the North American market. The Rewrite software allows to update powertrain models such as PCM and TCM.

VXDIAG HDS can do ECU reprogramming and IMMO key programming with i-HDS subscription.
