Launch X431 V 8 inch Test Great on Skoda Rapid 2016

This morning, i have received the 2017 version of Launch X431 V 8 inch tablet, for my repair work in the garage.

In the afternoon, i tested on the first car; it’s Skoda Rapid the 2016 year.

For the first time to use it, i went to Launch x431 v 8″ tablet application via the tablet and registered it first, with the user name and pass

Then downloaded VW software to test Rapid 2016

Also, i tried the special function… did a steering angle learning

steps as the tablet displays:

1 start the vehicle

2 drive in a short distance straight line on a level surface at a speed not higher than 20km/h

3 while driving turn the steering wheel one turn to the right and one turn to the left

4 when having the steering wheel straight again stop the vehicle with the wheel’s pointed straight

5 ensure that the steering wheel is not moved again

6 keep the engine running and do not switch off the ignition

7 system voltage at least 12.0v

My thoughts:

If i rate my old Autel DS708 7/10, then the new version of 8-inch x431 v scan tool can be scored 9/10. The language and vehicle coverage is what i wanna share with all. x431 v has 23 languages available (it’s said to add more) and it’s very easy to change the setup language by users (no need any help from the factory; ds708 needs that). And the new Launch x431 v covers almost full European and USA cars. Of course, no problem with Asian cars. And works good Brazilian, Indian, Malaysian cars also.
