Nexiq 125032 USB Link has been set up after well connected with vehicle. The Bluetooth software provides a virtual serial COM port (Bluetooth Serial Port Profile). The COM port provides well communication between diagnostic base system and the NEXIQ USB link. After built connection with Bluetooth, the system will ask for a PIN “NEXIQ” (with all letters capitalized) to confirm Bluetooth communication. You need to specify this port when you install the diagnostic application.
The first thing we’ve noticed is that Nexiq is no longer packaging their adapter in the “Nexiq Box” that they’ve frequently used for not only the USB Link, but other products as well. Here is what the original box looked like: Nexiq has decided not to provide this packaging with the new USB Link 2, but I guess who really cares about packaging?
For all its popularity, the original Nexiq USB Link 125032 had some serious design issues. The main issue was with the USB connector at the bottom. The original design was very poor, and lets face it, these devices are being used by diesel and auto technicians. To say they are rough on tools would be an understatement.
