ServiceMaxx (J1708) adapters
 
The Navistar Service Max software recommends these three adapters,

NEXIQ™ Technologies – USB-Link
Dearborn Group Technologies – DPA 5
Noregon® Systems, Inc. – DLA, DLA USB

Are there any other lower cost adapters that would work?

Thanks,

I've got one of the cheap Nexiq usblink clones. I haven't connected to a navistar yet but it worked good for my ISB and MD3060. I don't anticipate any issues with navistar.

Thanks,
Can you point me in the direction on where to get a clone?

I got mine from aliexpress, they don't necessarily let on that they're clones so you can search for nexiq and come up with the kits. A lot of fiddling to make it work but I was able to change speed limiters and cruise controls on both brands today.

Great!

Thanks!!!

I found this one, but what I don't see is, will it work ok for a DT466E ?

I got this one: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/3286...7fd34c4d2dHJVH second from the left the $128.50 with plastic box. It works fine with the DT466E. The ones that claim to be clones of the ublink2 have the same innards as the ones that claim to be clones of the usblink1, so don't pay extra money for a different looking case.

I purchased a bluefire. It gives diagnostics and a live digital dashboard

[QUOTE=Dead pirate;371729]I purchased a bluefire. It gives diagnostics and a live digital dashboard[/ca

can it also be used in conjunction with the servicemaxx software like the nexiq adapters?

the bluefire is not an RP1210 adapter.. it will not operate with servicemaxx.. I have the bluefire and the blue link and the USBlink2 adapters.. the only one which operates with servicemaxx is the USBlink 2 or a clone.. theoretically any RP1210 compliant adapter that supports J1708 should work with servicemaxx

Thank you for clarifying! Would you happen to have any suggestions on the most economical options for a unit or software to purchase for diagnostics, adjust governor and possibly do a little tuning for a little more HP/torque?

Do you have a link for this or chinese equivalent ?

I wish to add live dash and digital screen on a tablet but am unsure what to actually buy...

a link would be most helpful as i have neither the device nor a tablet yet and wish to buy good ones
