Very frequently asked questions about which version of BUDS and what equipment use to diagnose vehicles BRP.

For the diagnosis of 2-stroke vehicles required:

1. MPI-2 adapter.

3. 2-stroke cable.

4. MPI-2 cable.

5. License key for B.U.D.S.

For the diagnosis of 4-stroke  vehicles required:

2. MPI-2 cable.
3. DESS Post EFI/RFI/DI/4-TEC.  (for add keys for SeaDoo, SkiDoo)

We have developed a DESS 4-TEC, which reduces the cost of equipment for those who do not work with 2-stroke engines.

This depends on the model of your adapter. Today, there are two models of adapters: MPI-1, MPI-2 and MPI-3

MPI-1 - the old adapter, able to work in three main protocols: KW2000-250k, DESS, 947-DI. Communicates with the computer via RS-232, also called a COM port. It supports almost all models 4-TEC, which support the exchange rate 250k KW2000 protocol as well as the entire line of 2-stroke technology. Due to lack of KW2000 protocol with baud rate 500k is not able to handle E-TEC technology, and some models of ATV Can Am.

MPI-2 and MPI-3 - a modern adapter USB, which uses the protocol CAN, supports transfer rate of 25 to 1000k. For the diagnosis of BRP vehicles used KW2000-250k and KW2000-500k. As a standalone unit, supports vehicles 4-TEC and E-TEC, without the possibility of record keys. With prefix DESS Post is able to register the keys, and is able to serve the full range of vehicles BRP, including old-style, like his younger brother, the MPI-1.

MPI-1 adapter is no longer supported by software.

The latest software B.U.D.S. only works with MPI-2 and MPI-3 adapter.
