What is "License key for BUDS"?

This is a dealer license key required to "unlock" BUDS program.

Dealers license (standard diagnostic mode) :

What is needed for the diagnosis of 2- and 4-stroke vehicles BRP ?

Very frequently asked questions about which version of BUDS and what equipment use to diagnose vehicles BRP.

For the diagnosis of 2-stroke vehicles required:
  - MPI-2 or MPI-3 CAN Adapter (for the diagnosis of 4-TEC, E-TEC).
  - DESS POST ( for the diagnosis of  2-stroke vehicles EFI, DI, RFI, recording key for  2-stroke and
    4-stroke).
  - Cable 2-Stroke (for connection of DESS POST to vehicles).
  - License key for BUDS.
  - Software B.U.D.S.

For the diagnosis of 4-stroke vehicles required:
  - MPI-2 or MPI-3 CAN Adapter (for the diagnosis of 4-TEC, E-TEC).
  - Cable CAN (for connection of MPI-II to vehicles).
  - For SeaDoo and SkiDoo DESS POST ( for the diagnosis of  2-stroke vehicles EFI, DI, RFI, recording key
    for 2-stroke and 4-stroke).
  - License key for BUDS.
  - Software B.U.D.S.

We have developed a DESS 4-TEC, which reduces the cost of equipment for those who do not work with 2-stroke engines.

In all models "I-control" - GTX limited (iS) y RXT (iS) the DESS keys are encoded directly into the reader of Jetski, without auxiliary reader (including all Jetboats 1503-210 and 230, years 2010-2012).

For all vehicles CanAm required:
  - MPI-2 or MPI-3 CAN Adapter (for the diagnosis of 4-TEC, E-TEC).
  - Cable CAN (for connection of MPI-II to vehicles).
  - License key for BUDS.
  - Software B.U.D.S.

What models and years of release which supports the adapter MPI?

This depends on the model of your adapter. Today, there are two models of adapters: MPI-1 and MPI-2.

MPI-1 - the old adapter, able to work in three main protocols: KW2000-250k, DESS, 947-DI. Communicates with the computer via RS-232, also called a COM port. It supports almost all models 4-TEC, which support the exchange rate 250k KW2000 protocol as well as the entire line of 2-stroke technology. Due to lack of KW2000 protocol with baud rate 500k is not able to handle E-TEC technology, and some models of ATV Can Am.

MPI-2 - a modern adapter USB, which uses the protocol CAN, supports transfer rate of 25 to 1000k. For the diagnosis of BRP vehicles used KW2000-250k and KW2000-500k. As a standalone unit, supports vehicles 4-TEC and E-TEC, without the possibility of record keys. With prefix DESS Post is able to register the keys, and is able to serve the full range of vehicles BRP, including old-style, like his younger brother, the MPI-1.

MPI-3 - Latest version of BRP OEM Diagnostic Device. Supports faster transfer rate, USB 2.0 protocol, New 32-bit micro controller,...

MPI-1 adapter is no longer supported by software.

The latest software B.U.D.S. only works with MPI-2 adapter.
