The device is intended for programming of transponders, that are a part of automobile immobilizing systems.
Unlike the previous model the Gambit, new model Tango is the two-band device that has allowed to add the list supported transponders with firm Texas Instruments products (Tiris ©).

The product is in working out stages, therefore the list of the supported transponders will be developed later.
For the present moment Tango has the following built in makers and functions
The device has ergonomic design with high mechanical characteristics of IP65 class according to the DIN EN 60529 standard. The device has following dimensions:
length 160 mm
width 80 mm
height 50 / 30 mm
The device enclosure is made of 3mm ABS-plastics with a rubber shock-proof damping seal which simultaneously is a decor element. The seal also prevents the device sliding on a work table surface.
Also as well as the Gambit, the device derives the power from USB and does not demand connection of an external power source. Difference is use of drivers of other type that allows to avoid conflicts to other devices working through virtual ports.
Unlike the Gambit, the device has wide slot for keys of any size and two small holes of various depth for transponders of any sizes.
LED indication unlike Gambit is taken out on the upper cover of the case that is solution more convenient in using.
The program interface has the modern intuitive design favorably differing from the interface of Gambit.
Meeting modern requirements, Tango supports OS Vista that was not realized in Gambit. Supported versions of Windows:
Programmer for transponders. Has an out-of-date one-band design, mismatches modern technical requirements. To familiarize with the description it is possible on the same web site.
Programmer for transponders. The two-band model following after Gambit, answers modern technical requirements.
The maker (key maker)
The mathematical apparatus built in the program allowing automatically to create keys for cars. Usually, the maker uses the memory content (dump) of an immobilizer in the form of a file with .BIN extension. Does not require technical knowledge of the operator.
