Joe: 4.0 out of 5 stars

Does what it should. But there is minor issues.

UPDATE: Updated the scanner last night and now temperatures seem to be working properly, raising from 3 stars to 4.

Pros: The product is cheap and does do what it says it does. Will allow you to control all the sensors and lights on the vehicle if you have the add on for that manufacturer.
Cons: slightly glitchy, also the temperature and pressure measurements are no where near accurate. Not sure why. I updated the product via the computer. I think I will be keeping the product due to its functionality and price. But there is minor issues which are kind of annoying. But compared to the price of a name brand scanner I still think it’s an alright purchase.

works well

for what I need to use it for it works well. tool is easy to update. I dumped the software for GM into the tool. was easy to do. the sard reader that comes with the tool is a piece of crap I have my own micro sd to USB adaptor that is much better then the one in the kit with the scanner. I have used it a few times. I wish it had a broader reach of abs/sir trans and ecm data it’s hit or miss whet it will read and not the same on every vehicle.

great service, decent tool for the price

It does pretty much what it says it will do however it will not program the VIN into the PCM on GM products, so if replacing PCM you will still need a mechanic or someone with the right tool, it will set cam retard on GM products and is all around a very helpful tool

You will need to purchase additional software.

Product works well. I used it to perform an automated brake bleed on GM and exhaust system diagnostic. Creating an account and product registration are a chore.

affordable and works

great tool it is a generic/factory scan tool if that makes sense. it goes into all the different modules and performs calibrations and tests it also graphs from the data stream but it does not do any type of flashing (module updating). this is a great tool for what it does.

Worth it for the money

It’s definitely worth it for the money it did exactly what I needed to do the quality is decent it’s not shop quality and the CPU processor is slow and can hang or crash it’s trying to do too much. controls are really basic everything is pretty much self-explanatory and this is a good substitution for the GM Tech 2 if you are like me a DIY’rt

Best scanner I’ve ever had

For the price they want for this of you are either a shade tree mechanic diyer or have your own business I’m telling you this scanner is what you need this thing does everything any high end scanner can do literally. You name it can do crankshaft variation relearn, module tests graph info live data injector tests ,transmission, everything and anything for any brand of car you want first software is free I picked gm you can have 5 on at once gm covers saturn Isuzu Daewoo and any gm plus the first 3 years of updates to that software is free. This is a great scanner highly recommend customer service is outstanding

Works like a charm GM version

Absolutely money well spent and already paid for itself. I’ve been a shade-tree mechanic for 15+yrs and always had to take vehicles with check engine lights on to a friend’s shop and get the codes pulled and then make repairs. I got the GM version to scan 2002 Chevrolet 2500 I recently put a motor in and with this tool I was able to figure out the fuel purge solenoid was bad and also re-learn the crank position sensor. Fixed both and couldn’t be happier. Will be down loading other manufacturers software to broaden vehicles I can use it on.
