BMW ICOM A2 Reviews
“ICOM A2 for bmw vehicles with OBD access receives a more significantly powerful processor and more storage capacity.
Robust case will help to avoid damage when using in harsh environments.
And to protect the MOST connector, the ICOM B for vehicles with optical MOST access will be equipped with a soft cover made of rubber instead of the former plastic cap.
The ICOM C for old series with a diagnostic socket will be additionally equipped with an approx. 20 cm long cable, which facilitates the connection of the ICOM A2 and makes storage in the engine compartment easier.”
