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,

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

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

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.
