I got real lucky and found it on Ebay... There was 2, lost the first one bidding, went to 600. Then found another for buy now of 750, with a best offer. Ended up paying 500. My rep said about 1500 cost. Keep your eyes peeled on Ebay. Part number is EESM304A. Its worth around 500 in my opinion, for I agree the other dongle is a joke!

I think a Chinaman906BT or TS scantool (albiet it hasn't got a nice built in 4 channel scope) that includes a very similar looking little illuminated dongle that for the entire kit and case sets one back hundreds dollars less than $1800, and a lost dongle can be replaced off E bay for less than $300, so I don't think Snappy would gouge anyone $1800 for a lost dongle

Sweet!

At the Zeus introduction seminar I went to last year the factory reps there stated the replacement retail price of the dongle was $1800. I later confirmed that on the tool truck. It's a year later now so I wouldn't be surprised if they dropped the price a bit. THe factory guy said the reason the price was so high was that the dongle contained what amounted to the complete electronic guts of an Ethos scanner, plus Bluetooth. He did not elaborate as to why they felt the dongle needed to have all that in it.
