I was in search of diagnostic tool for my F150 to diagnose several ABS issues and bought Launch X431 V 8 inch 3 days ago on my brother’s recommendation.
In my opinion, its well worth the money. I purchased it at 38% off from cardiagtool.co.uk that just cost €689.00. It does the same thing all those overpriced Snap On units do, for 1/6th of the price. Snap on can’t write the info reading software for the cars, they must rely on the manufacturer to tell them everything.
I have been trying it out on various vehicles since the tool arrived, including Honda, Nissan, Toyota and Chevy. On every single vehicle it had a lot of capabilities, datalogging, separate module actuation tests as well as code reading capabilities on multiple different modules in each car. It even had reflashing and recalibrating abilities on most of vehicles. I have some experience with snap on and I would say this tool is better than that.
The scanner has a 8-inch display and connects via WiFi/Bluetooth which makes connectivity much more easier and clean, no more hanging or keys to insert, the battery life is great and you even get all the other amenities that android offers. Inside the box comes all the connections and adapters needed for OBD2 and OBD1. Beyond that, this buy came with free two year updates online which is hard to find.
Overall I am very happy with what I got for the price.I would not hesitate to recommend Launch X431 V 8-inch tablet to any shop working on small vehicles and my friends. The tablet is handy and android is easily to operate.
Thanks to cardiagtool.co.uk save me a lot in big discount!
