Nexiq USB Link 2 Bluetooth Edition 124032 replaces 125032 which is obsolete Vehicle Interface Bluetooth Automotive Tool
Make the connection easier and even better than ever.
The Nexiq USB Link 2 is a hardware device that enables service bay personal computer to retrieve vehicle information using either wireless Bluetooth technology or more traditional cable connection. Once configured, the USB Link 2 interfaces with your PC, enabling you to use specific PC applications to perform vehicle diagnostics.
Dependable and rugged, the new USB-Link 2 is five times faster than its predecessor. It has sixteen times more random access memory than the old USB-Link, and it supports heavier bus loads on simultaneous channels.
The Nexiq USB-Link 2 also includes a new Bluetooth* module with an enhanced data rate to support wireless communication (500 b/s J1939). For even more reliability, we’ve upgraded the USB connector to a more robust, automotive grade connector with a latching mechanism. The USB-Link 2 is compatible with a wide range of OEM software applications.
The Nexiq USB-Link 2 comes with the following:
- Latching USB Cable (Part # 404032)
- 6 and 9 pin Deutsch Adapter (Part # 493148)

Using the USB Link 2 with a wired connection provides the advantage of faster data throughput. For that reason, using a USB connection to the PC is highly recommended when diagnosing heavily-loaded CAN/J1939 buses. By nature, Bluetooth has less bandwidth than USB, which can result in dropped messages in situations requiring high bandwidth. You will want to use a wired connection to the USB Link 2 for ECU reprogramming.
Wireless connectivity provides untethered operation, and that’s a bonus in a busy service bay. The USB Link 2 uses Bluetooth wireless technology to provide wireless communication between the USB Link 2 and your PC.
The USB Link 2 is intended for diagnostic use, for example, retrieving trouble codes. By nature, Bluetooth wireless technology has limited bandwidth and latency when compared to wired solutions. This may result in dropped messages in situations requiring high bandwidth.
