ICarScan X431 Tool Available again

icarscan_2

I own a Durametric. I haven’t used it in about a year – since I got the ICARSCAN.

ICarScan is much easier to use than the Durametric since it works with my Android smartphone, no need to boot up a computer and plug it into the computer. It connects via Bluetooth to the phone. I carry it in the Cayenne since it’s tiny and can be used anytime I have my phone along (about 100% of the time.) So far I haven’t found anything I can’t do with it that could be done with the Porsche PWIS. Doesn’t mean there isn’t – but I haven’t found it yet. It resets all the different service reminders. Resets adaptatations. Reads out real-time values and can plot them. Can read and clear codes stored in any of the vehicle modules.

DISCLAIMER: I get nothing for posting this except hoping to encourage the company to continue producing it, since that means there will be software updates for the one I already own. I like it. I think it’s good value. YMMV – but I don’t think so.

ADDITIONAL INFO: (05/05/17) People have reported that the iOS application apparently is difficult to impossible to get working. Before buying it – if all you have is an iPhone – I’d suggest reading the thread and talking to some of the people who have tried it on iOS. Other people have mentioned success or difficulty getting the Android application working. I suspect part of the problem is the number of versions of Android on the user market. If you’re using an Android phone, or tablet – Launch X431 might be worth checking or asking who got it working with what. I also should note – it appears I’m running an earlier version of the software on my Android phone (Droid-Turbo-II) and tablet (Verizon Ellipsis-7). I have not tried downloading the new version since I don’t like to muck about with a working thing. Again – check and ask people what works if you have a concern. My final warning – communications with the vendor are almost non-existent. When I first got mine (about a year ago) I emailed them about a problem getting it to install on my tablet (which apparently isn’t listed as compatible with the software at the Google store) – and got a few brief replies. Since then – I’ve emailed asking about renewing my subscription – and have gotten no answer. Despite my “subscription” expiring – the software I originally downloaded (5 vehicle brands and the other free stuff) continues to work. It has also updated the firmware on my dongle despite my subscription being expired. What I have not done is open the store feature of it to see if there is a subscription renewal option there. I may do that sometime. Or not. Right now – it’s working fine for me.

I recommend that you buy icarscan on Obd2tool.com. They are cheap, shipping is fast, and after-sales service is also very good. I have been using it for a year and there is no problem with the quality of the product.

How is the icarscan different from the icarsoft POR II i960

3-1

Question:
I was hoping to do the hybrid clutch fluid replacement and clutch adaptation service myself, and was wondering if this is what’s needed, since the alldatadiy manual points to PIWIS for this service and doesn’t provide much of any info on how to perform it.

Answer:

I have been in touch with the Launch X431 iCarsoft maker and they are working on new software for Boxster/Cayman that will provide much more functionality across all areas.

I only mention ICARSCAN now (since this thread is not about that model) as once the new SW is available, I will work on setting up a GB in hopes of saving us some money.

No details on the discount, but we’d need at least 15 units so we can order directly from OBD2TOOL at the distributor price.

Does new icarscan conclued 5 cars and 5 special functions?

I’ve gone to the ICARSCAN page supplied by the seller and of course I’m more confused than ever. It says 10 downloads, does that mean 5 cars and 5 special functions?

Here is a brief introduction of special functions in the main menu and that under a model.
1. Special function in the main menu
If users choose special functions in the main menu and select one, then users can perform this function for all models developed in the list.
For example, users go to Special Functions in the main menu for oil reset, they can reset oil for all cars listed there like BMW, Toyota, Honda and cannot go to diagnosis or others.
2.Special functions under a model
That is a special function like oil reset after users go to BMW software.For example, users go to BMW OBD Software, there must be lots of functions incl. Special Functions. Then, they can select oil reset for the BMW mode
Does that mean if you pick oil reset under the main menu it is a function of all cars listed, but if you don’t pick it you can maybe find it under a specific car brand?

So here is the list of special functions Do we get to pick 5 or 10? . I would guess I want
1. reset oil,
2. I’d be willing to try the key function in hopes it will work with some car on my list.
3.What does the Battery MS one do?
4. What is the difference between Bleeding and rest brake?

I’m trying to do the 100k service and so I”m changing the oil and all air filters, I”m just curios what I”m going to get for my $225 from obd2tool,

2-1

you can pick any 10 you want. 10 car brands or 3 special functions and 7 car brands etc. whatever adds up to 10. I have an iPhone and had to choose all 10 at the start. Tried selecting just porsche and then continuing. Wouldn?t let me do it.

The Porsche specific one resets oil and tons of other stuff. That?s what I used for my reset yesterday. Next time I?ll try the special function to see if it works the same.

I just selected car brands I or family members have, then did the rest as special functions in case a friend needs a reset etc on a car brand I didn?t select. I have no idea what brands the special functions do and don?t work on, but I?d imagine it works on most. I was mostly concerned with the brands I own. As for the reset brake vrs reset bleed I have no idea the difference and haven?t played with that yet. Also have no idea for the resetBMS…. Only played with the Porsche specific side so far and it does all the special functions as far as I can tell specific to Porsche.c

Launch X431 iCarScan Test Reports

Is Launch ICARSCAN a better OBD2 fault code reader? One of our customer has tested Launch iCarScan scanner (iDiag’s replacement) on several models

Tested tool:
Launch X431 iCarScan
27-1

Tested model:
Mazda 6 GH 2.0 diesel 2008
Toyota,
Honda,
Scion

Tested results:

Functions:
To be honest, Launch iScan have a lot more options on that car then vpecker, for example on engine it can only read few parameters and it can read and clear trouble codes thats it nothing else on engine not even dpf regeneration, idiag have more to offer for that car, i tested on few more cars. I think what it can do more with special functions is for Toyota,Honda,Scion. But since it is original interface and software price is ok for it.

Update:
iScan fault code reader is updated online via Win XP~Win 10 system. Very very easy to update. So they can work for all cars until 2015.

Language:
English, French, Russian, Japanese, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Chinese

That’s it. I should say, each one has its own merits and demerits, Auto Diagnostic Tool Launch X431 iCarScan work ok until now. A successful purchase from China.
