The Bluetooth Diagnostic Interface supports Bluetooth communication. It can transmit vehicle data to the MaxiSys Display Tablet without a physical connection. The working range of the transmitter through Bluetooth communication is about 755 feet (about 230m). A signal lost due to moving out of range automatically restores itself when the display unit is brought closer to the VCI unit.
For detailed information about VCI connection with the MaxiSys display tablet, please refer to the MaxiSys User Manual.
The VCI device also provides a direct connection to the MaxiSys display tablet or a PC via a USB 2.0 full-speed connection. All of the electronics are contained in the device shell, making it a compact and rugged vehicle communication tool.
Vehicle Data Connector:
The vehicle connector connects the device to the vehicle's DLC via a standard DB15 – Pin OBD II cable.
There are 5 status LEDs on the front panel of the VCI device, which indicates its working status as well as the hardware conditions, and are very useful for troubleshooting the device's communication or connection to the Vehicle, display tablet and/or the PC. See Table 1 for detailed description of the status LEDs.

This part describes problems that you may encounter while using the VCI device.
1. Vehicle Linking Error:
A communication error occurs if the interface device fails to communicate with the vehicle's control module when performing diagnostic procedures. You need to do the following check-ups:
1). Verify that the ignition is ON.
2). Check if the interface device’s OBD II connector is securely connected to the vehicle’s DLC.
3). Turn the ignition off and wait for about 10 seconds. Turn the ignition back to on and continue the operation.
4). Verify the control module is not defective.
2. PC Communication Error:
1). Verify the interface device is powered, and the green power LED is illuminated.
2). Check if there is any firewall software interfering with the connection port.
3). Check if the green status light is illuminated for USB communication.
If these issues have been addressed, verified, and you are still having trouble, please contact technical supports for assistance. Refer to the MaxiSys User Manual for additional information.
