First Kudos where it's due - this was posted on the Solstice Forum here: http://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/f12/vcx-nano-150506/

This is a new (to me) type of TechII emulator with an OBD 'dongle' used with a laptop.  Only $109 and can in theory do anything a TechII can do.  Video here:

Somebody PLEASE buy one!

You can get a "Tech 2" on aliexpress for about the same price and not deal with any 32/64-bit issues or other weird incompatibilities.

I havn't seen a TechII clone for less than double the price of this.

You can multi task?  Seems like this would take all of 60 seconds for you to order?  Pretty sure you could get it done while sitting on the toilet during a potty break.
Just sayin

Doh!  Of COURSE I could order it.  But I can't play with, or test, it while I'm down in Florida for a month - even if I wanted to order it.  <sigh>
