BMW Omitec cable
Hi everyone. I happened across an original BMW OMITEC USB cable, and I can hardly find any documentation about it. It works very well, and is extremely well built and robust. Very easy to carry around instead of the larger ICOM.

I have more specific questions if it can work with older L-Line modules ('ADS' modules) with a 20-pin adapter?
I have looked through the official documentation, and see that the OMITEC 'Desktop" has L-Line on pin 15 of the interface parallel port, but wanted to know if the OMITEC USB needs an adapter, or what kind of wiring to communicate to L-Line, if possible.

The OMITEC USB and OMITEC "Desktop" uses the same drivers, firmware, and communication settings.

If anyone knows more, I appreciate any answers.

RE: BMW Omitec cable
Well it doesn't look like any K+DCAN I've ever seen.
It is powered by +12V vehicle power, not USB port...



   
Heavy duty machined body


   
gold plated spring pins, in a machined body


   
Infineon Processor?, FTDI FT245BM


   
The opposite outer side


   
Some other documentation, AM29F400BB memory


   
Version history, capabilities



It is approved to Diagnose, Code, Flash any BMW up to date (AFAIK).

Its old interface. Been around a long time.

There are lots of interfaces that work with BMW EDIBAS the most popular interface being a EDICblue from softing which gets new firmware and is rebanded as a VAS tool

I know it is an older interface, but still supported and updated by BMW. Still shows up in ISTA VCI Config.
Very easy to carry around instead of large ICOM for quick jobs.

Thank you for replies, I was hoping it to do L-line like Omitec Desktop, oh well.
EDIC is interesting, as I always wondered what it looked like when seeing it in ediabas.ini

I have never tried it as a passthrough device. I will look into it, testing on my VW with ODIS. Very interesting idea!
