USB adaptor slows connection

Postby racingka » Mon Jan 09, 2017 6:49 am

Hi,

I have mainly used serial port when playing with E6X. And now new laptop needed when doing calibration changes on road and need to use USB adaptor, FTDI UC232R. It makes a connection speed slower vs using serial port. It works fine just a little bit slower response. Do I have a bad adapter or is this normal behauviour?

Happy New Year!

Honest answer. Find another old laptop with the serial port and forget the adaptors. I have never seen one that is absolutely rock solid.
I keep an old Dell D830 which are common and cheap, with new batteries available for peanuts. Well worth getting one just for these older gen ECUs.

It´s nice when answers are honest. In garage I use really old Dell 8200.. XP is cleaned to work only with ECUs and it RS232 handles fine and FAST all old systems Haltech, Pectel, Motec...
