I am a car diagnostics DIYer. I don’t demand a full-function master tool because there are only some basic diagnostic needs in my daily use. Moreover, the high price is beyond my budget. So here I want recommend Launch Easydiag 2.0 plus to you. It is an economical and generic portable code reader which worth every penny. Following is my feedback for your reference.
This is what I got several weeks ago:
First, it’s easy and quick to set up Launch x431 easydiag and connect it to my iphone. I tested it OK to read& clear codes it also allows real time monitoring and graphing of the sensor data. I download the Volvo software and this easydiag gave me the same codes and descriptions as Volvo’s own Vida… And it can read the VIN and check all modules on 01+ Volvo’s and has worked on my 1998 CEL. Now I also use it to check temperature, gasoline, abs, engine, AT, etc. By the way, for my friend’s 05 Grand Caravan, x431 easydiag worked great for SRS codes as well.
Of course, there is one thing I have to say sometimes the data refresh rate is slow, and this will make it hard to diagnose a running vehicle accurately. It would be better if this tool can run faster, kind of slow.
About Launch easydiag software I knew it need additional cost, each software cost is 39.95USD. But I found an economical deal online only for $108.99: a unit of Launch X431 Easydiag 2.0 Plus + two free car brands software that you can choose according to your requirement. This is the link:
Actually, I read some poor reviews of this thing before but I think Launch x431 easydiag does a good job. Launch Company claims Easydiag is a personal vehicle trouble diagnostic tool for vehicle maintenance technician, students and DIY car owners. Personally speaking, I agree that.
