Customer feedback on MDI2 clone and genuine GDS:
“I just received my MDI II clone a couple of days ago and did a firmware update to make sure the latest v2020.12 Bosch software would recognize it and update it and it did with no problem. Programmed an ECM on bench. Connecting it through ACDelco Tis2Web and then use SPS to program the actual controller.
It is verified working with bosch GDS just as the seller advertised.”
If someone is looking to buy a Global B platform car, and needs a tool that will work on both it and the older cars like the C6 corvette, GM MDI2 clone really is the ticket. As for right now for a C6 and “A” platform cars, the vxdiag vcx nano gm has you covered for $118 instead.
