1. Gbit workshop LAN, backwards compatible
2. Preparation for Gbit LAN on vehicle OBD(cars do not yet support this and interface not yet defined,ICOM Next hardware adaptation will be necessary for future Gbit car interface,will cause adaptation costs)
3. Faster start-up time and high throughput
4. Through high-performance, low-power ARM SoC
5. Improved handling
6. More flexible OBD cable
7. Lighted button for logs etc
