ISTA and ICOM

Recommended Posts

Earlier this year I downloaded and set up ISTA+. As I have an E39 and my wife has an E88 I can connect iSTA to these with the cable I bought from Jimmy for DIS. However I believe later series cars need to be connected via ICOM and I must confess that I am not really sure what this involves. Can anyone explain fairly simply what is involved? I have checked ICOM on Ebay and these seem to be reasonably pricey bits of kit.

Hi,

You dont need an ICOM to use ista,

it works well with a K+D Can cable, I have an ICOM and use it very rarely but use K+D Cable all the time,

Are you saying that you can use your cable on F series models? I know it works on E series but I thought that later series needed ICOM.
