I'm jealous
My birthday is next month, maybe I should start dropping hints to my wife.
My wife would just laugh at me and say haven't you spent enough money on that Jeep already. With that money you could have just fixed your old MDX! She is right but I love my Commander more than my glorified Honda Pilot! So I will just stick with my OBD II reader and apps. Ordering a Throttle Response Controller next week! ( secret )

Hey hoping I am not a complete idiot here. I also got the stars scan only to find out now that you cannot get any of the updated software files due to the fact that dealer connect did away with it and they want you to go to the newer Witech 2.0. If you by any chance have any help as to being able to update, please let me know also I’m assuming due to this also don’t need to try to connect to Wi-Fi right?

There is a Orinoco network interface card you have to have, to download Factory software updates; See below, in the attached pic;



The Orinoco network interface card is an optional piece of equipment (meaning that it doesn't come with the purchase of a Start Scan Tool, it's bought separately) and it's primary use, is to download factory software updates.

My understanding is, you can still download factory software updates with the Start Scan tool, as long as you have a working Orinoco network interface card.

Most of the Star Scan tools I've seen for sale, did not come with a working Orinoco network interface card and typically, the sellers don't even mention them.

I have no experience with the new Witech 2.0, but, this is what the person I bought my Start Scan tool from told me, about the new dealership system (I assume this is the Witech 2.0 that you mentioned) and based on his comments, it's does sound like a WiFi connection is needed;

They are just small pods that plug into the obd2 ports and all the info is relayed through a computer over WiFi.
