Just ordered it? Anyone using it? Is it any good?

 

I have one on my dashboard - or is this something different?

Am I missing something, what’s special about it? It’s just another generic OBD reader isn’t it?

Wouldn't run on my old Vista 'diagnostics' laptop? Might have to upgrade that.:D Wow is great value but having to use a laptop in and around the car is a pain. Which brings me to, why bother doing a grand on a laptop just to run cheap diagnostics software when you can purchase a reasonable 'all makes' diagnostics system with a purpose built tablet that can be used as such for the same money?:unsure:

Everyday’s a school day. Not that it’d be any use to someone like me.

My Autel already does far more than I am capable of processing myself. I simply pull the code and google what it is, then pass to the tech to fit/fix.

Was going to buy the WOW Wurth.

Downloaded the software online - a few days later the laptop screen went black and a skull and crossbones came up. Had to had the harddrive wiped and re-installed. Also had to be quizzed if we ues this computer for downloading porn! :blink:

No, it was dodgy software.... Yeah, I wonder how many times the computer guy has heard that before :lol:

Seriously, we've got a handheld Autel and that is enough for us. The machine is only as good as the operator

Ditto, I have a super cheap MaxiDiag Elite which clears stuff.. The guys next door to me have a Snap-on thingy which is a bit more in-depth.... but some problems still need to go to a steeler for me to be bent over....
