Cummins Insite works for INLINE 6 and INLINE 5

Cummins INSITE v7.5 and new versions are compatible with the INLINE 6 and INLINE 5

Note that INSITE versions earlier than this are not fully RP1210B compliant and may not work with these adapters. See the chart below for an example of the basic connections needed to hook-up to the vehicle data link

You should be at Insite version 7.6.2 to get the best performance out of Insite. Inline 6 just has new features. Here are the changes INLINE 6 Data Link Adapter. This new adapter is now the only genuine or HQ clone Cummins product on the market and is the only adapter available that Cummins certifies to be 100% compatible with all features of the latest Cummins ECMs and software applications. The INLINE 6 can communicate with your PC through a 9-pin serial connector. The INLINE 6 also can communicate with your PC over a Universal Serial Bus (USB) through a 4-pin standard connector. The INLINE 6 adapter connects to vehicle power, the SAE J1708/J1587 data link, and two CAN/J1939 data links via a 25-pin serial connector. With full compliance to the Technology and Maintenance Council's RP1210 standard, the INLINE 6 will work with the latest Cummins INSITE, PowerSpec, and Calterm III software applications. It will also work with any other software applications that are fully compliant with the RP1210 standard (note that while some non-Cummins applications fully support RP1210, others do not, so you should test each application in question with the INLINE 6 adapter to make that determination

That is fine, working on 2010 and older trucks. The inline 5 will work on all applications as long as Insite version is up to date 7.5 or higher is required. I would go with the Inline 6 because Cummins is in the process of testing an Inline 8 adapter. You will find on some older engines Inline 5 and 6 is too fast and you must drop down to a Inline 4 or below. But the Inline 5 will work for your needs.

Volvo VIDA 2014D NO Communication Tool Problem Solve

I installed Volvo VIDA 2014D full and already patch..but cannot show communication tool..example like this picture...but luckily, solved finally. Here, i’d like to chip in with my experience.


I have two identical installation of VIDA 2014D on Windows 7 Professional 32 bit. These PCs were built in late 2013 primarily for VIDA. I have always kept the software up to date (Java 8 update 144, .NetFramework 4.7, all Windows 7 updates, and all IE updates). The only problem I ever had was when I updated from IE10 to IE11. That didn't work. At the time, I was paying Volvo to do downloads. Their support told me VIDA 2014 would not work with IE11. I switched back to IE10 and all has been well since.

My previous installation of VIDA, on Windows XP, did malfunction at times. With the help of Volvo support I got VIDA up and running. The normal Volvo/VIDA support team in the US was mostly useless. If there was a real software problem they only had one person that actually knew what was going on. The second time VIDA blew up on me I took notes when he resurrected VIDA. On my old XP computers I have used theses notes a couple of times. There was no short cut; I had to follow the entire uninstall procedure or it didn't work. This is it:

1. Open Control Panel | Add Remove Programs
2. Click on Vida choose Remove.
3. Click on Microsoft SQL Server 2005 choose Remove.
4. Click on Microsoft SQL Server Native Client choose Remove.
5. Click on Microsoft SQL VSS Writer choose Remove.
6. Click on MSXML 6.0 Parser choose Remove.
7. Close Add Remove Programs
8. Open My Computer and browse to the drive where VIDA resides.
9. Delete the VIDA folder
10. Browse to C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL Server
11. Delete the folder Microsoft SQL Server
12. Reboot the P.C and reload VIDA
