VVDI Prog and Xprog is Best Choice for Fresh Man

If you are a beginner of VVDI Programmer, you don’t need the adapters, if you need to read eeproms, get a second programmer like Xprog 5.55.

And for many auto locksmiths,it is important to choose a suitable programmer,here i put it here:

Why another programmer? Is not good with eep?
Xprog is cheaper then a vvdiprog adapter.
vvdi prog is good for reading proccesors.
Some have had problems reading eeproms.
This might be solved now that there is a adapter.
If your vvdiprog fails, at any reading or programming, you will have a backup.
It also helps as a confirmation to solve some reading writing problems.
All my collegues have at least few laptops, w7 32 w7 64 and xp.
And xprog, upa, tl866, willem, orange5
Xprog, is a great tool, and comes with many adapters.
Some even sell a xprog clamp adapter, to make i even more handy to use.
The picture posted, is 17euro adapter to use on xprog.
