Important: This is the OEM MDI Diagnostic Tool with diagnostic functions, it comes without this functions: 1. It DOES NOT has LAN Port function(usual used for updating) 2. It DOES NOT has Wireless function 3. It DOES NOT has the GM SPS (Service Programming System) account.New softwares with two types: 1. Users intall the software and activate it by yourself (follow the instructions) 2. Runs with VMWARE from DVD with your computer, users do not need to activate the software again!(Recommended)
-Specification: Note: The GM MDI requires software subscription to GM SPS (Service Programming System), which must be purchased separately via the ACDelco Tech Connect website.
GM MDI can test all GM car from 1990---2012 year.
--Description: General Motors Global Electrical Architecture (Global A) and Global Diagnostic Hardware &Software Global Diagnostic System DGS& Mutiple diagnostic Interface MDI
MDI and GDS Background MDI is an interface between the vehicle DLC and a PC (by wired USB, wired Ethernet, wireless Ethernet ) and TIS2web. Can be Used for SPS programming on existing and future SGM vehicles Required for diagnostics on new SGM Global A Electrical Architecture Vehicles Used with TIS2Web, GM Global Diagnostics System (GDS), SPS and MDI Manager Software Allows for GDS diagnostic
GM Multiple Diagnostic Interface (MDI) All current and most legacy vehicle protocols: UART, KW2000, CLASS2, GM LAN, etc. Needed for Global A architechture vehicles Supports Service Programming System (SPS) Passthrough progrmming on past model and Global A vehicles Supports PC-Based diagnostics with rollout of the Global Diagnositc System (GDS) application Includes Flight Recorder Mode
New Diagnostic Application Software required for Global A Vehicles Global Diagnostic System (GDS) PC-based software diagnsotics DTCs, Diagnostics, Data Display & Visualization, Device Controls, Special Tests, Flight Recorder management, etc. GDS is software which runs on a specific PC. Multiple display options. More space for diagnsotics. Session management for multiple us.
The Future of the Tech 2 The Tech 2 remains an essential tool through at least the 2010 model year. The GM MDI will not support past models when its diagnostic capabilities are introduced. And, the Tech2 will continue to be needed to diagnose all vehicles fromprevious model years. Remote programming with the Tech 2 will continue to be supported for use on all 2007 and previous vehicles.Additional information will be supplied in future. HOW WILL THE GM MDI BE USED? The new GM MDI can be used only in the Pass-Thru method. This means you can use it as your programming tool, while your Tech 2/CANdi remains available for diagnostics and other duties.
The GM MDI is initially being introduced with Pass-Thru programming capabilities only. It can be used to perform Pass-Thru programming on all vehicles built since 1996 and will support all vehicles into the future.
The GM MDI will be required to perform diagnostics on selected NAO vehicles for model year 2009. Diagnostic software is scheduled to be released for the GM MDI during the fourth quarter of 2008.
Regulations require programming procedures to be compliant with SAE Recommended Practice J2534. The GM SPS is compliant with SAE Recommended Practice J2534, and the GM MDI is compliant with the portions of SAE J2534 that are applicable for GM vehicles. What protocols does the GM MDI support? For immediate use — At present, vehicles have two buses on the 16 pin connector (high speed and low speed GMLAN). The GM MDI communicates using all of the existing GM protocols, the same as the Tech 2: - UART - Class 2 - KWP2000 - GMLAN (CAN) Beginning with the 2008 model year vehicles, Pass-Thru will be the only programming method available. (Remote will continue to be available for previous vehicles.)
When you test after 2010 year gm car ,you can use GM GDS2 software:
When you want to test before 2010 year GM car, you can use the techwin software to test it,run fast and stable:
-GM MDI installation requirement: PC specification require: Full installation version WIN XP3, install all the system patches
Test steps: 1: Finish update lease step, connect with Car OBD, click diagnostic icon on the interface. Choose brand and click "input" on lower right corner, car information will be read automatically, or you can choose manual input VIN 2: Choose test what you want, like module diagnostic—engine control module—identifying information
