2018 Obdstar X300 DP Plus vs. 2017 Obdstar X300 DP

Obdstar X300 DP Plus (X300 DP PAD 2) is coming soon. So, what’s new and different, compared with X300DP?

Obdstar X300 DP Plus:



 Obdstar X300 DP:



Obdstar X300 DP Plus vs. X300 DP:

– X300DP Plus main unit and vci adapter 2 in 1:

Obdstar makes X300 DP Plus and the VCI adapter in one machine. No need worry you forget to take the VCI if you’re out. And the built-in VCI box offers more stable communication.

– larger screen:

X300 DP Plus comes with 8-inch touch screen, which offers better visual experience than X300DP (7 inch).
– no buttons on the main unit:

X300 DP has four buttons on the left, while X300 DP Plus is a real pad without buttons.
– with a back bracket/support on the back:

You cant put the unit on the steel wheel or on the table when you are testing with a car.
– reduce production cost:

Obdstar adopts high-tech but spends a lot on it’s firmware design. But the pad works as a real diagnostic tool in fact, so it’s unnecessary to do so. X300 DP Plus cut the cost in firmware design but make sure of the performance as good as X300DP.

– new adapters:

3 adapters are integrated into the X300 PAD Plus: EEPROM /PIC 2-in-1 adapter, RFID adapter (VW Audi 4th / 5th IMMO programming and other cars e.g Porsche, BMW, Fiat etc.) and Renew Key PCF79XX adapter.

– Toyota smart key card!!!!!!!!!
– read 8-pin chip data!!!!!!!!!!!!

– ECU Programming/Cloning

ECU cloning means copy ECU, that is the OBDSTAR X300 DP Plus copies the data from the original car ECU, then write it into another same ECU hardware, so that it can achieve the same function as the original ECU.

When you want to change the new ECU or the second ECU, if you use X300 DP Plus to clone via OBD, you won’t need to go to the 4s store to do the online programming or dismantle ECU to weld, read & write.

ECU clone Pros :

No need to go to 4S shop, convenient, fast and save money.

Simplify the operating steps, even the amateur can also operate.

No need to dismantle and weld the ECU to read & write, it is zero risk to clone ECU via OBD with the X300 DP Plus.

– Switch activation function

Nowadays, many car models’ accessory power supply of the dashboard or audio equipment needs to be activated to enter the boot status through the related module CAN.

However, when the car technician maintains the dashboard / audio equipment, the main unit is out of the CANBUS network so it maybe won’t boot. X300 DP Plus ” switch activation function” can emulate the CANBUS communication to active the power supply of dashboard / Audio so that it can enter the boot status, then it will test and verify the dashboard and the Audio, also the technician can save money avoiding to purchase many the boot platform and cables of kinds of car models.

– New “Help” function including the testable car models, update notice, special features, help instruction, wiring diagram etc.

Testable car models: The user can read the testable car models and year.

Update notice: The user can read all of the update content.

Features: The user can read all of the special features and the functions that only X300 DP Plus supports.

Help instruction: Built-in the guide and instruction for each car model or function.

Wiring diagram: Built-in ECU wiring diagram, more intuitive and convenient.

In detail…

Error 1: “ID not found” when read eeprom 95160

I connect usb cable with carprog and a6 clip to eeprom 95160 . it gives me error “ID not found” .



Solution 1: Desoldering the eeprom from circuit board and read not in circuit board, read eeprom on the table


Error 2: “Verify error” when read eeprom 95160

Read with A6 clip. There is an error


Solution 2: Take a look here




Error 3: “Verify OK” when read eeprom; “Verify error” when write it

if i read it, verify ok



If write it, verify error


Solution 3:

probably have a damaged carprog.
Replace 74hc125.
try reading with the power supply.
Use a4 adapter


Here is a Picture of wires from chinese Carprog A4 Adapter

ID48 96 bit cloning, which device to buy?

Someone tried id48 96 bit cloning? Just thinking which device to buy. Does KEYDIY KD-X2 or VVDI KEY TOOL?


VVDI key tool you need tokens for id48 96 bit cloning , tokens are 6.7EUR each .Handy baby now use tokens for 96 bit as well which are a lot dearer .

speaking to KD-X2 Transponder and Remote copier, they haven’t made the decision yet on tokens or how much tokens will be for 96 bit id48 .

Keyline use no tokens but the gkm chips are £15 .

Silca use no tokens and silca 48 currently around 25.5EUR(10pcs) for the id48 chip ( rumours of their about to go up in price )
both above clone in just a few minutes and token free .

xhorse vvdi key tool tokens are 6.7EUR plus cost of chip

handy baby cheap chip but expensive token
at the end of the day its the speed to clone , the cost to clone and the chip price that will dictate the best tool , the token and chip prices may make silca and keyline competative as token free and very fast and reliable , time will tell.

the cost of the machine is not a factor , the cost of consumables ie tokens and chips is far more important , as a decent saving to produce the chip will soon negate the cost of the kit , once all consumable prices are known then it becomes easier to decide on best machine .

i have silca , keyline and handy baby options already , i have a kdx-2 on way to test for a uk distributor , soon id48 will be just another key to clone . with silca about to release ford 80 bit cloning im sure the rest will have it too in no time .
