VERY IMPORTANT TIPS: you’d better read it before your purchase
KESS V2 is a ECU programming tool that is perfect for OBD use, while KTag is perfect for Jtag, BDM and all the Boot application (tricore and ST10).
With KESS V2 you programming directly through the OBD port of the vehicle, while with Ktag you need to take apart the ECU and open it, after you can make the read/write operation.
Many ECU has the advantage that can be read and write from OBD port (so KESS V2 is perfect), but there are lot ECU that need to disassemble from the car and open and this is the case for all the ECU that need to be programmed with Jtag, BDM and Bootprotocols, so KTAG is needed.
So, if you read and write from OBD port and program with Jtag, BDM and Boot protocols, you must go to KESS + KTAG together. If not, do not waste money in your pocket.
