Conclution: X-431 V completely substitutes X431 IV and X431 Diagun III. It passes on Launch advantages in car fault diagnostic technology, such as vast car model coverage, powerful test function, special function and accurate tast data, etc. What’s more, X431 Pro has special function such as BMW idle study, BMW injection rate adjustment etc. But it memory not so big as x431 pad, and it can’t do videoscope, not so powerful as X431 pad.


In short, the two items have their own highlights, from the price, I think X-431 V is better than X431 pad. From the functions, they are both easy-to-use and if your economic affordable, I recommend you get x431 pad, but if not, X-431 V is also good for you to diagnose your cars!
