i have both Foxwell NT510 and nanocom EVO

the foxwell is incredibly affordable and available through amazon (i got mine same-day!)
the nanocom allegedly does more, though i haven't encountered anything thus far that it does and the foxwell doesn't, and the nanocom will run you over $600

frustratingly also, for the D2 you have to buy TWO softwares for the nanocom, one for the engine and another for the other systems.

I have the same to include an Autocom Delphi laptop software and UltraGauge Blue. The UltraGauge Blue OBD dongle with the app can be customized to monitor the Disco 2 (only for a V8) live data on your smartphone/tablet plus read/clear fault codes.
I much prefer the Nanocom out of all of my diagnostic tools for a Land Rover.
Btw... there is a newer Foxwell NT520 and NT530.

Yes you can.... though read the functions guide before you pay for it to not blame it after as being too complicated as others did with more ''smart'' tools

Using the nanocom requires some aptitude, some patience, some adventurousness, and the willingness to press a button and pray.

Mine hasn’t done me wrong yet.

Even after many of my emails to Foxwell Support, I could never get my Foxwell NT510 to reprogram my Disco 2 keys.
The Nanocom did this quickly.

Yeah the Fox well product is amazing value for the price but it’s insufficient for the hardcore DIYer

Are you 100% sure the foxwell cam reprogram the ecm? Even though I've never laid eyes on the ecm, the scanner tells me that I've replaced the ecm. It would really suck to buy foxwell and I still can start. Have you done this yourself with the ECM or keys? Thanks so much.

I can have a look at my foxwell... I bought it to pull codes while I was waiting for my nanocom to arrive.

I’ve used my nanocom to write ECU ROMs countless times

Thanks, I'd appreciate it. I have too many problems to be buying stuff that won't do what I need. Thanks again.

hmm. played with the foxwell menu, and couldn't figure it out. it definitely has an SD card in it for loading/saving data.

according to the manual "It supports resets, adaptations, and coding of control modules"

my RRS is so far taken apart (and i don't have a gauge cluster currently) so i cannot connect it.

it appears that if you email foxwell with your VIN and what you're trying to do, they'll give you a definite "yes" or "no"

it's a great and handy tool that I keep in my disco for resetting the 3 amigos etc, and i wouldn't be heartbroken if it got stolen... whereas my nanocom would be super sad to lose.
