I just acquired a Predator U7185 from a friend that sold his 2005 Chevy with a Duramax LLY engine. I have a 2001 Chevy with a Duramax LB7 engine. Can the U7185 be reflashed to a U7180? Also can the OBD-II scanner be used on any General Motors Vehicle that is OBD-II compatible?

So I have two choices, cut two notches in it and use it for an ash tray, or use it for a door stop. Thank You for your prompt reply.

what is the current software version on the tool? If it is a 9rXX version it can be converted for $99 + shipping.

At the very least, its a good code reader/logger, etc, destroying it seems rather wasteful to me, but its not my tool :)
Its also worth $100 as a trade in toward a new intune or trinity...

The Predator that I have is a U7185 LLY Duramax 6.6L 04.5 thru 05. The info on the main screen is
9/02, S/N 009235, Tool I.D. 1E8DC3F3DB633E3B, Software 2.02, Hardware 1.01, Tool Status Unlocked.
I want to reflash this unit to use on a 2001 HD2500 Chevy Duramax 6.6L LB7.
Is that possible or do I have to buy a different unit.

yes, it can be done for $99 + shipping, fill out the return form under support on our site and request the hardware upgrade to a U7180.
