Default Icom A2 ?

Hi all,
I just got from a good friend icom A2.
Can anyone tell something about it ?
What advantages and disadvantages does it have ?

I install it just like the first icom?

Yes it's totally the same as ICOM A1 except for the design.

It's redesigned, cause dealers where not happy with the A1 since it is "Easy to break".

well , they use same software,so all the function is the same.
The different between icoma and icoma2 is the quality of hardware.

The modified ICOM A2 for vehicles with OBD access receives a significantly more powerful processor and more storage capacity. Robust aluminium case will help to avoid damage when using in harsh enviroments.

ICOMA may be able to use two of three years ,but ICOMA2 at least be used over three years .

Icom whether it he A or A2 can be used for many years as long as its well maintained and protected from being kicked around. Most Icoms break from abuse and being kicked around. Best bet is to use a obdii to obdii for connection to the obdii of the car and allow the Icom to pay flat to the ground.

Exactly. Icom A + obd cable is in my opinion much better than A2 + thick obd cable that comes with it. A2 obd cable is like iron bar, not very handy.
