Is it worth the money to have a Genuine Tango key programmer? How about the quality of the Cloned? Here you go.
Part 1: what is Tango, original vs clone?
TANGO = Key maker by dump file and have some function for OBD2 in Toyota cars.
Genuine Tango has basic software, made by Scorpio
New modified Clone OEM Tango has full software,made by Fly
Part 2: Tango key programmer good or not?
The Chinese sell genuine (OEM) and original Tango. The OEM one is from FLY and it is cheaper. FLY company made 2 versions of Tango, Item No SK80-C with poor quality which is now out of production. Then they modified the inside components and made new Tango Item No SK80-C1.
The original Tango is from scorpio. At that price it won’t be a clone.
Tango from fly: The built-in full documentation what the original had.
clone Tango old version (Item No: SK80-C):
This is what i have. China clone…the board is not good, poor quality
But now the new Tango clone (Item No: SK80-C1) has modified PCB which is much better than old Tango clone.
original Tango: happy
I got mine http://www.obdii365.com/wholesale/super-tango-key-programmer-with-basic-software.html
It is original and support from Scorpio is second to none. Got help on a Sunday morning from them!
Part 3: Can I buy Tango original/clone from China?
Scorpio Tango from a Chinese distributor: happy
Scorpio have a Chinese distributor who supplies all Chinese sellers.
It is a 100% original tool which you must register with Scorpio for updates and support.
I have one and it is a great tool. I bought mine from obdii365.com and I am very happy with it.
Original Tango from China: good tool;
The Chinese sell genuine and original Tango. It is not a clone. I bought one. I am not an idiot. I saved a little money. I get one to one support from Scorpio, even on a Sunday morning. It is a very good tool. 100% original. Best tool I ever got from China.
OEM Tango SK80-C1 from China: paid off already
2 days ago, customer bring Subaru Impreza 2009 with AKL, read BCM and load in Tango.
It can use with 4D, CN2, CN5, LKP02, TPX2, EH2. I choose EH2 just for test.
Program and bring to customer test. Car work at once.
I also program with Tagkey tool from FVDI to see, but it doesn’t work.
So my first experience is very good, and it paid already 3 times the price of tango clone.
ONLY no any Toyota key maker is activated in clone.
To be a locksmith:
go for the Genuine but you have to invest more than a Tango
you can try with the Clone; probably it is ok for a DIYer, if you have the luck.
