    Because I don't think it's fair to customers with genuine HEX+CAN interfaces who do not yet own (or work on) cars that still work just fine with those interfaces.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    ^^^ .........and the continuing support that RT generously provides for these "older model" cables also underpins the sale of 2nd hand tools to other folk that perhaps are not willing, or cannot afford a HEX V2.

    An operational 2nd hand HEX-USB cable is a good entry level tool for first time explorers who are venturing into the magical jungle of diagnostic CAN networks. Plus, the trade of these tools often finances the purchase of new HEX series cables - so RT benefits too!

    It's win-win for everyone (I reckon)!
