Why not buy X431 V 8″

Being a workshop technician whose purpose is to provide diagnose & reset service on all automotive brands. I would like the most inexpensive tool that will support the function what I want and meanwhile help me make money. Which tool is the best choice?

Purpose:
. Normal function: Read DTCs, Clear DTCs, Read datastream
. Special functions incl. Brake reset, Oil reset, SAS Rest, BAT reset, ABS Bleeding , Elec. throttle Relearn, TPMS reset, DPF reg. , Gear learning, IMMO.

Automotive brands and year to cover:
1. Automotives from America, Europe, Asia, Chinese, India, Australia, Malaysia, especially Proton, Ford Australia, IRKIA, PERODUA, Proton, TATA, Maruti, Lancia, etc. that old Launch X431 and other tools can’ t communicate with.
2. A tool can cover automotive up to 2017 year.

The tool I was recommended:
Launch Launch X431 V 8inch Tablet Wifi/Bluetooth Full System Diagnostic Tool with Special Function (Paid 799USD incl. shipping cost on www.uobdii.com)

5 working days delivery to California at a good package.
I think I got this tool is occasional and feel lucky, at first, I wondered if this tool is what I want, can it work as described. Only after the customer service Karen sent me a Youtube video then I would like to have a try:

Tested and it works very fine. It’s awesome. I pick up some test results i.e. BMW coding/programming and key programming test, Toyota A/T registration, Electric throttle learning and write VIN as well as VW online programming.

Test result 1.  Lots special functions works

Tap the screen option, there are even step-by-step instructions on how to do. I already use it to help several car owners reset service, very easy to use.

2. I take only 3 pictures to prove it can cover  Indian cars, Australian cars, Malaysian cars.

4.  I choose BMW to diagnose, and got prompt “The newest BMW V49.55 software can diagnose the elec. Control sys. Of BMW up to 2017, include Engine / Chassis / Body and other parts. The operation is the same as the original tool.”

16-5

Next to BMW menu, it even have coding/programming option, i.e BMW Mini and 3 Series are covered. Before I think  BMW ICOM is for professional engineers, then this is for me who are new to BMW coding / programming world, by using Launch X431 V, it will prevent me damaging the ECU , meanwhile to use ICOM I will  save the training money that may be several times of device price.

You could also see it has “special functions” option.

16-7 16-8 16-9

Next is “Car key memory” option.

Haven’t test this function, but I am sure it will be much easier for those fresh locksmiths since the professional BMW key programmer is expensive and the procedure is comprehensive. Make key via OBDII will be easier and not possible to damage the IMMO.

5. Toyota 2017 year works and lots special functions works.
Newest Toyota V28.82 software can diagnose Power train, chassis and Body system up to 2017 on Toyota vehicles.

Toyota VIN Write works

6. VW online coding works and free (a big improvement)

16-16

7.  Covers Ford and Mazda up to 2017 year incl. Escape, MKC, Fusion, MKZ, Expedition, Navigator, Transit Connect, Explorer, Transit Connect, Super Duty, F150 etc

And more..

Conclusion:
