YOU HAVE TO READ: Why should you have a 2018 Launch X431 V 8-inch tablet, not other diagnostic tools?
Launch X431 V 8-inch scanner, GOOD or NOT?
Definitely yes! It’s worth every penny!
Why Launch X431 V, NOT Autel DS708?
The Launch has higher hardware configuration while the Autel ds708 stops production.
Launch has 23 languages available while ds708 has 6 only.
Launch x431 supports English, German, Japanese, Russian, French, Korea, Arabic, Spanish, Italy, Portuguese, Polish, Turkish, Dutch, Greek, Hungarian, Arabic, Danish, Persian, Romanian, Serbian, Finnish, Swedish and Czech
Launch supports much more vehicles worldwide, about 69 car brands about 220 models from European, USA and Asian
But ds708 works with 40 car makes around.
The x431 v has the following special functions inside but ds708 has nothing:
Oil Reset Service, Steering Angle Calibration, Electronic Parking Brake Reset, Battery Register / Battery Maintenance, ABS Bleeding, Electronic Throttle Position Reset / Learn, Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Regeneration, Tire Pressure Monitor System Reset
Why 2018 Launch X431 V, NOT Autocom or TCS CDP Pro?
Here are reasons why you should have a 2018 Launch X431 V 8-inch tablet instead of an Autocom or TCS CDP Pro:
Launch X431 V vs Autocom vs TCS CDP pro… Here you go
Launch X431 V 8″ is compatible with Android tablet and` phone, it is handheld and no bother installing driver and program.
Cracked Autocom/Delphi Ds150e is windows-based and need to install driver.
2– Function (special function):
Autocom/Delphi Ds150e Clone is with normal function, A LOT OF SPECIAL function DOES NOT EXIST OR DOES NOT WORK.
Launch X431 V 8″ covers full range car models and perform full car system diagnosis include: Read DTCs, Clear DTCs, Read data stream.
X431 V 8 inch includes more special functions incl. Oil Reset Service, Steering Angle Calibration, Electronic Parking Brake Reset, Battery Register / Battery Maintenance, ABS Bleeding, Electronic Throttle Position Reset / Learn, Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) Regeneration, Tire Pressure Monitor System Reset, specifically, BMW idle study, BMW injection rate adjustment, BMW battery replacement, Nissan matching key, Renault – airbags coding ON/OFF, like on Clip tool.
Programming: some models support online programming.
In short I suggest buy original launch X431 V 8 inch for 799$ and you will have best solution because of the price of what you pay.
The only way that you have that big database and functions is to buy original software from Delphi, autocom or wurth, because there is no new version than 2014r3 / 2015r3
And Launch X431 V haves far more than Delphi and others because launch you can have with 2016 database and even 2017 database for Ford and Mazda incl. Escape, MKC, Fusion, MKZ, Expedition, Navigator, Transit Connect, Explorer, Transit Connect, Super Duty, F150 etc. and believe me it is big difference.
4- Vehicle coverage:
X431 V is much better in model coverage for old Asia (10+ years, basically Autocom/Delphi will never support this models good+Asia adapters was never developed) and sometime better functions for new Asia (younger than 10 years, this models are included in AC/D). About European brands are both tools perfect.
5- After-sale service
Launch X431 V 8″: Tap the “Remote Diagnosis” option and through CC number no need TV, you could gain instant messaging and remote diagnosis.
Autocom/Delphi users usually use Team viewer (TV) to get remote assistance by supplier.
Launch X431 V 8″ update is free for the first two years and upgrade every one month.
Autocom/Delphi Ds150e Clone is no new version than 2014.03v / 2015.03v for long time.
If you want it legal, then you can buy Launch X431 V 8 inch, it has the same functions like X431 V 7″, run faster than 7″ since it has better configuration.
8- Language available
Launch X431 V 8″ language available: English, German, Japanese, Russian, French, Korea, Arabic, Spanish, Italy, Portuguese, Polish, Turkish, Dutch, Greek, Hungarian, Arabic, Danish, Persian, Romanian, Serbian, Finnish, Swedish and Czech.
Autocom/Delphi Ds150e Clone language available: English, Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese, Czech, Dansk, German, Turkish, Greek, Dutch, Hungarian, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Swedish.
It all depends what do you need and do you really have to have it software + interface genuine, if yes then I recommend Delphi (CDP or Multidiag pro) if you are new to diagnostic world, but if you need original interface and to buy license for launch separately then I would choose launch x431 v 8 inch tablet, because it will cost you a lot cheaper. You will get what you pay for.
