I was When this cheap Techstream cable arrived, It came with TIS software and drivers. It has a full version of TIS, no license required. I reprogrammed a couple of options – works great.
MINI VCI FOR TOYOTA TIS Techstream 2015.V10.00.028Single Cable $26.99, I bought from:
I exactly confirmed it could turn on my alarm and do settings such as auto door lock, seatbelt chime. I made some changes to the key reminder chime as a test.
FYI – this cable works with a real Windows PC and even a Mac running Parallels Desktop or VMWare Fusion. The Mongoose cable drivers would hang my Mac, but with this cable I don’t have to boot in to Windows. I just open Windows in a virtual environment and program away
On www.worldobd2.com site they also said it needs Windows XP. I am using this on Windows 7 in a virtual environment on a Mac, and also installed it on Windows 7 on a real PC, Dell laptop. So I don’t believe you need XP – your milage may vary.
You get a cable. You get unlocked (no subscription required) TechStream (latest version).
You can reprogram the Tundra (in fact any Lexus or Toyota). Turn off nannies – yes. Change TPMS – yes. Anything the dealership can do – you can do.
I am not selling these. I bought one and tested it, that is all.
I’ve been a member of this site for almost 2 years – this is not a scam, con, or joke.

The zip file is TIS-V10.00.028, please download it and extract it.
