Doesn't the VCX NANO support MS-CAN? Why does it not find all the modules?

The AllScanner site only lists working with Bluetooth and USB not WiFi

I think I saw something in the FORScan change log about fixing this. The VCX found all the HS and MS modules on my Fusion

Got FORScan working with it using the USB cable, even on Windows 10. It gets 1ms min timing versus 7 to 10ms for my OBDLink MX Bluetooth.

The blue light blinks on the VCX but I'm not able to pair with Bluetooth. Anyone get Bluetooth to work?

I can add that regarding the VCX Nano for ford/mazda, I took mine apart and no bluetooth module is present. The bluetooth capabilities advertised on the main Allscanner site it not accurate. I can not speak for the WIFI version but I have the usb version and have used it with my 2003 Mazda 6 V6 and AFTER installing the "pass-thru" driver (J2534) it works perfectly and fast with FORSCAN.

How did you get it open? I don't see any screws.

Did you happen to take any pics of the inside? Some blogs have complained about the poor solder quality on some of the VCM2 clones.

The VCX Nano I took apart seems to be a custom design to emulate in hardware part of the hardware/software of the VCM II but the driver is most important too. I did not take pictures but gently peeling down the stickers reveals 4 screws. Once inside it is a very simple board with a ST micro cortex M4 STM32F4 Series based micro controller doing the work. The FT serial to usb chip-set and some caps and a space that was blank for I assume either the WIFI or Bluetooth module. I googled the device and did see a Russian site where a guy took apart a VW version and it had more chips and and older generation micro-controller.
Soldering looks like reasonable quality surface mount and no hand work or redo's.

Hi, I have got the VCX nano, unfortunately I can't get FORScan to work with it, it finds it but not connecting to my car which is ON. I have proximity key, no manual key and it is in the car, tried also have car runnning but no change, can anyone tell me how to set FORScan to detect and work with VCX nano?

First of all install VCXManager and this driver:

And second configure ForScan how this image:

Its run perfectly

Update your VCXmanager and drivers to the lastest version

Thank you for info, do you happen to know how to add smart proximity key ? I have only one existing proximity key and can't use Ford procedure for owners. I have IDS, FORScan and VCX, can this be used to add smart proximity key ?
