    question about these above properly other selles out that do laptop versions (not the handheld obd scan tools that we have or not have)

    i have a couple of hand held scan tools a few of us have differant makes do differant levels of fault finding and reset functions,

    but these laptops seam to offer more functions as cars are getting more complicated ie injectors,batteries need programing to the car , e,brake reset
    my handheld dose srs e.brake dpf but only on a few cars and poor at data logging, a friends has the laptop obd and likes it cheaper option than say a 600quid plus autel tablet 9then you got the jap china imports that shut down

    so anybody got one of these laptop versions how do you get on with it been working over a year ok with it? are you able to get updates good customer service if a problem?

    over to you lot.

    Used the Delphi one for a while at work, when it worked! Most of the time it would freeze, not connect etc. In the end we throw it in the corner and refused to use it anymore, mind you I'm not convinced it wasn't a knock off copy of the software (probably from Ebay).
    I know someone who had his own copy and he had no problems with his software, won't reprogram new parts though (airbags, steering rack etc)
    So to sum it up, might be ok might not!

      I had a laptop software/cable for Vauxhall which I used to use on my old Astra, bought from eBay 'cheap' and was clearly a Chinese knock off copy and wasn't 100% reliable and was always a little worried using it.

      Looked into it in the past and Delphi software is about 2k:

      So anything selling on eBay at the prices in the two listed items is probably suspect!

        my foxwell is now 4 years old so am looking at something more modern as cars just keep getting more complicated and garage service costs even for simple jobs so try and do as much myself as for me buy a car and try and keep it for at least 10 years roughly look at my mustang . i have around 7 cars to look after 2 non electronic others are a mix of ages,

          Can you not just update your Foxwell software?
