Dongle?

Can you use any serial to usb cable to plug into a Microtech ECU or does it need to be Microtech's.
Thanks in advance,
Jeff

any cable or usb convertor is fine as long as you have the dongle.

Never mind, didn't realize I needed a laptop adaptor. No instructions came with the car and I have found it very difficult to understand how the Microtech is to be installed and what it needs to work.

I have received the most and best information by just reading posts in this forum.

Thanks RX72c. Didn't see your post when I made my last reply. Your posts have been some of the most informative in this section.

I found this site http://www.microtechusa.com/, they happen to be in USA . I emailed them but no reply that makes me unsecure to by online as they dont have a phone # to contact them either .
