he USB-Link™ is a hardware device that enables service bay personal computers
(PCs) to retrieve vehicle information using either wireless Bluetooth® technology or a
more traditional cable connection. Once configured, the USB-Link™ interfaces with your
PC, enabling you to use specific PC applications to perform vehicle diagnostics.
This chapter introduces the USB-Link™ and provides details regarding the communication
modes available to you to interface with your PC.

- Communication Options: Wireless or Wired?
Communication Options: Wireless or Wired?
Prior to using the USB-Link™, you need to decide how you want the unit to
communicate with your PC. There are two options:
• Wireless connection to the PC using Buletooth® (pg. 5)
• Wired connection to the PC using a USB cable (pg. 7)
Wireless Connection
A wireless connection provides the advantage of untethered communication.
Figure 1.2 Wireless Connection
Wireless connectivity provides untethered operation, and that’s a bonus in a
busy service bay. USB-Link™ uses Bluetooth® wireless technology to provide
this wireless communication between the USB-Link™ and your PC.
NOTE:
i The USB-Link™ does not support Integrated Bluetooth. If your PC has
Integrated Bluetooth, your system has Bluetooth® drivers installed and a
built-in Bluetooth® transceiver. You must uninstall Integrated Bluetooth
and its Bluetooth® drivers prior to proceeding with the USB-Link™ installation process.
USB-Link™ Installation and Setup Manual

Chapter 1 • Introducing the USB-Link™
If your PC does not have Integrated Bluetooth, then you are clear to proceed
with the USB-Link™ installation process as documented in this manual:
• Install Bluetooth® drivers
• Install an external Bluetooth® adapter
NOTE:
i For detailed information
on installing Bluetooth® drivers and configuring a
®
basic Bluetooth environment, refer to Chapter 2: Installation and Bluetooth Configuration, later in this manual.
• Pair the device
— Instructions for Windows XP Users
(using the NEXIQ™ Bluetooth Connection Utility, refer to Chapter 3:
Preparing to Use the USB-Link™, later in this manual.)
— Instructions for Windows 7 Users
NOTE:
i The USB-Link™ is intended for diagnostic
use, for example, retrieving
®
trouble codes. By nature, Bluetooth wireless technology has limited
bandwidth and latency when compared to wired solutions. This may result
in dropped messages in situations requiring high bandwidth
6
USB-Link™ Installation and Setup Manual
- Communication Options: Wireless or Wired?
Wired Connection
A wired connection provides the advantage of faster data throughput.
Figure 1.3 Wired Connection
Using a USB connection to the PC is highly recommended when diagnosing
heavily-loaded CAN/J1939 buses. By nature, Bluetooth® has less bandwidth
than USB, which can result in dropped messages in situations requiring high
bandwidth. ECU reprogramming typically requires both high throughput and
critical timing, and should always use a USB-to-PC wired connection.
Wired communication between the USB-Link™ and your PC requires a USB
cable.

Step 2: Choose Your Connection
You have two options for connecting the USB-Link™ to a PC or laptop computer.
• Wired connection using a 15 ft. USB cable
• Wireless connection using Bluetooth®
Choose one of the following options. Both have advantages.
Wired Connection
The advantage of a wired connection is faster throughput (e.g., you want to use
the USB-Link™ for ECU reprogramming).
Figure 2.13 Wired Connection Using USB Cable
NOTE:
i If you are connecting the USB-Link™ by means of a USB cable, you do
not need to read the rest of this chapter. Instead, move on to “Connect the
USB-Link™ to a Vehicle” in Chapter 3 of this manual.
If you choose a wired connection, you may still want to install the Bluetooth®
drivers now rather than later. This will give you the flexibility of wireless connectivity at some time in the future. To install the Bluetooth drivers now, continue reading
the remainder of this topic. Otherwise, move on to Chapter 3.

• Wireless connection using a Bluetooth® connection(pg. 36)
Wired Connection Using a USB Cable
To connect the USB-Link™ to a PC or laptop using a USB cable:
1 Connect the USB cable to the USB port of the PC or laptop.
2 Connect the other end of the cable to the port on the device as shown in the
following illustration:
Figure 3.2 Connecting to a Notebook Computer Using a USB Cable
3 Connect the DB15 male end of the appropriate adapter cable to the USBLink™.
4 Attach the other end of the adapter cable (i.e., the Deutsch connector end) to
the vehicle’s diagnostic connector.
NOTE:
i The vehicle’s diagnostic connector is typically located under the dashboard on the driver’s side, or beside the driver’s seat. It can also be
located in the engine compartment, near the electronic control unit (ECU).

NOTE:
i In some cases you may be prompted to enter a PIN code, or passcode.
For Windows 7 this is called a pairing code. If you are prompted to enter a
PIN or pairing code, enter NEXIQ (all uppercase).
To connect the USB-Link™ to the vehicle:
1 Connect the DB15 male end of the appropriate adapter cable to the USBLink™ (see Figure 3.1).
2 Attach the other end of the adapter cable (i.e., the Deutsch connector end) to
the vehicle’s diagnostic connector.
NOTE:
i The vehicle’s diagnostic connector is typically located under the dashboard on the driver’s side, or beside the driver’s seat. It can also be
located in the engine compartment, near the electronic control unit (ECU).
—At this point, the Power (green) LED on the USB-Link™ should be illuminated (on).
—If the Power LED is not illuminated, turn the vehicle’s key to the ON position, leaving the engine off.
When using a Bluetooth wireless connection, you will hear an alert signal when a
PC running an RP1210A or RP1210B compliant application connects and disconnects from the USB-Link™.
In addition, when the USB-Link™ is out of range (more than 100 ft.) of the PC
while the application is running, the device will beep and the fault LED will flash
until the USB-Link™ is back in range. Plugging the USB cable into the USB-Link™
will silence the out-of-range beep and turn off the flashing fault LED.
