wiTech MicroPod 2 V17.04.27 review:
Just ordered a chinese clone MicroPod II and it has been working exactly like an OEM unit. No errors so far and tested functions on 3 different vehicles. It has been confirmed working with unmodified software wiTECH v17.03.10 (downloaded directly from Chrysler). For now it works fine.
I have tested Dodge also. I just used it on a 2014 dodge avenger just fine. I am able to flash a module update and program a new key with the unit.
I don’t have experience with Windows XP. This version of Witech works fine on Windows 7 and Windows 10.
I have also uploaded pictures of the internals for those who are curious.

Foxwell NT520 Chrysler Jeep Dodge Diagnostic Tool feedback:
- Works just fine on my Jeep. It is actually a heck of a lot cheaper than some tools I was quoted for, some tools were over £1500. Crazy. This will do me nicely. Thanks.
- I had the ABS warning lights showing on the dashboard of my Chrysler. This tool was able to diagnose the fault, and when I fixed it the light had all turned off. Very nifty kit and well made. This will save me in the long run from taking to the garage every time.
- Absolutely sick of being taken to the cleaners by the local garages, I bought Foxwell nt520 in the hope it would save me some money as my local garage charges £75 just to hook it up (daylight roberry) anyway this tool arrived and have used it a couple of times already, and no mr rip off garage for me. Thankfully.
