KEYDIY KD-X2, is it worth the money

I am sure after reading the following KEYDIY KD-X2 tool feedback, you will know if it is worth the money.

First look its nice, chip read fast, remote frequency test work good. It has one interesting function, simulate remote by tool and android app.

For now kd-x2 precode many remote. You can’t copy proxy key, keydiy work to make universal proxy key.


For copy id48 chip

48 chip clone is not yet activated, manufacturer said that it will have an update on May to enable some function.

KeyDIY factory is moving their online server. They will do an update in May, after the update, all KD X-2 can activate 96 bit 48 clone functions freely by the update 96 bit 48 clone functions cost tokens. You can gain tokens by generating remotes using KD X-2 . Generate 5 remotes, gain one tokens.


KD-X2 can clone transponder, as you can see in the following picture, the 46Chip locked 7936 is allowed to copy.

KEYDIY KD-X2 identifies Chip Type in 5 steps:

What the difference between KD-X2 and handy baby / xhorse key tool?

  1. Generally speaking, the tool looks very good, it is this very small display compared to other tools on the market.


  1. For now VVDI key tool is better to chip copy, kd-x2 precode many remote. I use both now and i am weiting for update on kd soft.


  1. vvdi key tool you need tokens for id48 96 bit cloning , tokens are $8 each , handy baby now use tokens for 96 bit as well which are alot dearer .speaking to kd , they havnt made the decision yet on tokens or how much tokens will be for 96 bit id48 .keyline use no tokens but the gkm chips are £15 .

    silca use no tokens and silca 48 currently around £12 for the id48 chip ( rumours of their about to go up in price )

    both above clone in just a few minutes and token free .

    xhorse vvdi key tool tokens are $8usd plus cost of chip

    handy baby cheap chip but expensive token

    at the end of the day its the speed to clone , the cost to clone and the chip price that will dictate the best tool , the token and chip prices may make silca and keyline competative as token free and very fast and reliable , time will tell.

    the cost of the machine is not a factor , the cost of consumables ie tokens and chips is far more important , as a decent saving to produce the chip will soon negate the cost of the kit , once all consumable prices are known then it becomes easier to decide on best machine .

    I have silca , keyline and handy baby options already , i have a kdx-2 on way to test for a uk distributor , soon id48 will be just another key to clone . with silca about to release ford 80 bit cloning im sure the rest will have it too in no time .
