User feedbacks on OBDSTAR X-100 PRO, SuperOBD SKP900 and Tango:

Very good for Asian and American cars is SKP-900. But I also use Tango. Tango is excellent, but can’t do cars remote locking for example and is all for off car programming (needing XPROG etc)

I use X100 pro OBDSTAR. I’m very happy with it. Not perfect but very good!

I have x-100 pro and it’s nowhere near as good as SKP900 FROM CnAutotool, also Tango in my opinion is much better for off car programming. SKP900 has very good OBD coverage especially American cars. Tango is superb for all difficult and on the bench. Moreover Tango is very good at EEPROM Applications.


There is no a perfect key programmer that can do all car keys in all occasions. But you can find a better one which is good and useful for your own usage. Hope this blog helps.
