Why Mongoose? Toyota says...

Why did Toyota select the Mongoose MFC J2534 VIM for the Techstream Lite Kit?
The Techstream software has been modified to meet the SAE J2534 standard for vehicle interface modules. While there are many J2534 devices available, Toyota can not validate all of them. The Mongoose MFC is an elegantly packaged VIM that is competitively priced. We have done extensive pilot testing with the Mongoose MFC and have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from Technicians and Region/Area Office personnel. While we can not claim the Techstream Lite will support all Techstream functions, we tracked over 2000 Mongoose MFC connections during pilot and we estimate the Techstream Lite / Mongoose MFC set will perform 95+% of all functions. We are actively working to address any Techstream Lite bugs found when using the Mongoose MFC VIM.


Will other J2534 devices work with Techstream software?
Likely, but Toyota has not tested other configurations. Techstream software validation is focused on the full Techstream system and the Mongoose MFC VIM. At this time, we do not recommend or support other J2534 devices for diagnostics.


Toyota has approved other J2534 devices, can I use those?
Toyota has approved a number of J2534 devices for reprogramming only. Toyota has not validated or approved these devices for diagnostics. The Mongoose MFC is the only J2534 device that Toyota recommends for diagnostic functions.


Can I use a USB extension cable with the Mongoose MFC VIM??
Yes, USB extensions can be used in conjunction with the Mongoose MFC VIM. USB cable extensions are relatively inexpensive and can be purchased from a number of common electronics retailers. If you use a generic USB extension cable with the Mongoose MFC VIM ensure that you do not exceed a total length (device + extension) of 16 feet or communication errors may occur. Active USB extension cables are available if you need to extend more than 16 feet.
