http://tomsshoessaleonline11.tumblr.com,This software platform offers a two week free trial prior to purchase,sac prada pas cher. It is a product of OBD Software,chloe femme. The company provides excellent and very courteous support,converse all star,Touchscan OBD2 Scan Tool Software Review. Questions are answered very thoroughly and rather quickly by email. The company has two automotive diagnostic software programs and 1 add on functions package,Sac Chloé.
The two software programs are Touchscan and OBD Wiz,tods soldes. The functions package is referred to as the Professional module.
OBD Wiz is the version distributed with some scan tools as a free program upon tool purchase,lunette carrera. It is unknown if it is full function or crippled in this distribution,burberry soldes.
Touchscan is the twin of OBD Wiz according to the company support,Touchscan OBD2 Scan Tool Software Review. It can be purchased and operate on those supported scan tools that are not partnered with OBD Software,converse pas cher.
The Professional module adds functions you expect in an automotive diagnostic software platform,Chanel pas cher. A licensed copy of the Touchscan software is required prior to purchasing this add on functions module,tods chaussures. It has a nice feature that allows the combining of two parameters to have a unique one that may be easier on the user. A purchase of Touchscan without the professional module is a waste of money,lunettes chanel.
The software interface is very well organized and easy to navigate,sac burberry. The connection interface auto populates the com port and hardware speed settings,gianmarco lorenzi. This makes it easier on the user that is not familiar with how to set up communications. It has a checkbox that is supposed to “Automatically increase the baud rate” auto populated as well,chanel sacs.
All of our testing is conducted on the same vehicle with a 9141-2 protocol,prada moins cher. This protocol by specification is 10,lunette Chloé,400 baud,sac chanel pas cher. The reason we use this vehicle is some scan tools and obd2 diagnostic software programs have problems connecting with this protocol,prada pas cher. If they connect and work properly on this they should perform exceptionally well on all other protocols,sac chanel homme,Touchscan OBD2 Scan Tool Software Review.
The software had problems maintaining a connection with the ELMScan 5 USB tool. The connection with our 2x80S USB Scan Tool was consistently quick and stable with each attempt. This poor connection of the ELMScan 5 may have been due to the programming differences in the two scan tools,chanel lunettes. Both scan tools could not achieve a connection speed above the 10,lunette carrera pas cher,400 baud. This appears to be a program limitation in the software,chanel pas cher.
During the testing it did auto populate the available supported sensors (PIDs) on the vehicle and preset the polling (speed at which it requests the data),lunette oakley discount. We were unable to get all supported sensors (PIDs) to display data,sacs a main Chloé. The most we achieved was 5 PIDs of 17 available. We thought this may have been a “crippling factor” in trial mode, but the company’s support staff assured us that the software was fully functional.
This clearly indicates that connection speeds are inadequate with this protocol. The software may perform well with faster communication protocols like the “CAN protocol” which is used on many late model vehicles,Touchscan OBD2 Scan Tool Software Review,sac chanel.
The software was able to connect with both the PCM and BCM modules,Chloé pas cher, obtain calibration identifications and calibration verification identifications,lunette carrera homme. Upon testing for OBD II Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) it showed that there were none which was correct.
When the Freeze Frame data was accessed,converse discount, it auto populated a data screen,lunette oakley. This is a large No No,tods pas cher! Someone unfamiliar with the software could assume that this data is correct,gianmarco lorenzi chaussure, which could lead them down the wrong path of diagnostics.
When the “clear DTC” function was attempted with the engine running the software was willing to perform this task without any notices to turn the engine off,chaussures hommes tods prix. This “clear DTC” has been proven to harm some PCMs in vehicles while the engine is running. At the very least there should be a warning against performing it with the engine running.
A further review of information on the company’s website for purposes of checking our connection protocol speed assumptions is a little confusing. While viewing the capture screen images (12) of the software in action it was noted that screen 10 information was at best questionable. It contained information showing the vehicle as,burberry pas cher; vehicle identification number (VIN) 1G1JC5444R7252367,boutiquegianmarcolorenzifr.info, the calibration identification (CID) JMB*36751500, and the calibration verification number (CVN) 1791BC82.
Deciphering the VIN reveals this a 1994 General Motors Chevrolet Cavalier (J body chassis), sub model either a VL or RS, made in the USA,oakley pas cher, with engine code 4 and Federal emissions. GM was an early adopter of OBD II, however it was not until the 1995 production run and not on lower price / profit vehicles. So this had to be an OBD I vehicle with an ALCL diagnostic connector and not an OBD II connector.
Support was questioned about the ability for their software to connect to an OBD I vehicle using a scan tool like our testing tools with a GM ALCL OBD I adapter cable,Touchscan OBD2 Scan Tool Software Review. They assured us this was impossible.
Perhaps after some more development time in the communications to improve performance with non CAN protocol vehicles, removal of the auto populate freeze frame data when there is no code, and warnings about clearing DTCs with the engine running it could be a great product. For now this OBD2 Scan Tool Software diagnostic program I would NOT recommend.
