TOOL REVIEW

Product description

Nexiq USB Link 2 (Bluetooth Edition)
The reviewer is impressed with the versatility
offered by this device's Bluetooth connectivity
and its ability to work with most OEMs.
Aftermarket scan tools can be helpful for
technicians who work on multiple vehicle
makes, saving time by offering coverage in
one device rather than having to purchase
and manage software from several OEMs. A
common pain point that remains, however,
is the cables and cords linking the device
to the vehicle. Edwin Hazzard, owner of
Southeast Mobile Tech in Charleston, South
Carolina, appreciates that the Nexiq USB
Link 2 offers both the capability of an
aftermarket scan tool and the untethered
freedom of Bluetooth connectivity.
Hazzard says using the tool is fairly
simple and straightforward.
"One end goes into the laptop, the other

one goes into the 9-pin Deutsch connector,"
he says. "I can just plug in under the dash
on the truck, and then I can have my laptop
outside ... so I'm not cabled to [the truck]."
Hazzard commonly uses the USB Link 2
with Allison transmissions and Cummins
engines, though he says it works with "probably 90 percent" of the OEMs he services. He
notes that the device can be used for diagnosis and, with some OEMs, programming.
Hazzard is pleased with the versatility and performance from the Nexiq USB
Link 2 and the efficiency it brings to
his operation.
"It's definitely a time saver," he says. "It's
a great tool."
