Hi all. As always technology advances and what was the lates & best piece of equipment yesterday id out of date today.
We're looking into purchasing a new diagnostic tool, and wonder if I could have some advice from those of you out there with the experiences you've had with your own machine. A personal recommendation is far more honest than a salesman!
We need a multi-purpose machine, that will talk to as many different makes & models as possible, show live data, include an oscilloscope, and if possible (as we also sell batteries), enable us program the power management of cars with stop-start systems (something that is necessary when changing a battery).
For the past 3 years we have been using an Omiscan 2 made by Omitec, and have found it to be very useful, but it has a few limitations. (Plus, we have been experiencing problems with its operation on certain PSA vehicles, and have found their customer support to be nowhere near as good as we would have hoped).
Please post your experiences (good and bad) of your diagnostic machines which will not only help us choose our next purchase, but I'm sure that other memebers would find the information interesting.

Hi Tony, thanks for taking the time to reply. We're still looking for our 'new' diagnostic machine. Who makes the launch, and where can I find more information about it please?
Thanks

Hi Tony,
Don't rush into buying a diagnostic scanner have a think what makes you want it for?
VW it has to be VAG COM, vaux VAUX COM, French would be Dec superscan 3, all rounder, Auto com/ maxi das. Go to Maverick technology they sell them all and are very helpfull people, do google search for number.

Hi Folks,
Just to update antyone who's interested, it looks like we're going to be upgrading to the TEXA AXONE 4 Car & Light Commercial package. We had a demo of the system on Friday and it seems to be very well featured, and easy to use.
Is there anyone out there already using one of these who would like to add their thoughts & feedback?

hi folks
Coming from a main agents background no one tool does all
I found Hella to be very good but the tec back up not good
as a general rule I am now on the top of the range snapon
verus edge and honestly cannot fault it the back up is great
the online topics are great and it will do through programing
at extra cost

I think Delphi are very good for the price my basic one even operates the windows and fuel gauge on my Citroen c5
But be warned only buy genuine one as it need to update of the net
And one off ebay will get wiped
