All cables sold after February 2008 are 2nd-generation cables.

Do I Have a 2nd-Generation Cable?

Durametric version 6 is only compatible with our 2nd generation cables. If you purchased your kit after February 2008, then you have a 2nd-generation cable.

If you aren't sure, check this list:
  • Cables with a white, label-wrapped box in the middle of the wire are 1st-generation cables.
  • Cables with the LED light on the OBDII connector can be either 1st- or 2nd-generation.
    • If the cable has the LED light on the side of the connector housing that reads "Durametric," then it is a 2nd-generation interface cable and it is compatible.
    • If the cable has the LED light on the side of the connector housing that reads "Enthusiast" or "Professional," then it is a 1st-generation interface cable and not compatible.
  • Customers with 1st-generation cables can upgrade to the 2nd-generation for $150 USD, plus shipping.
  • For more information about why we are not supporting the 1st-generation cables with version 6, please see our Upgrade FAQ.
