AutoEnginuity's Scan Tool is a professional PC, Pocket PC, and Palm diagnostics scan tool for all OBDII (OBD2) and EOBD IV+ compliant vehicles. AutoEnginuity's Scan Tool allows you to read the vehicle's diagnostic trouble codes, live vehicle sensors (including wide-band O2 sensors), actuate bi-directional controls, reset adaptations, and view inspection/maintenance system test results to quickly determine what service the vehicle requires.
The ScanTool was designed to be as easy to learn as it is powerful. It comes with an automated installation process, a complete and comprehensive User's Guide, and an easy-to-use interface. You won't have to spend valuable time learning another piece of software; you can focus on what's important - servicing the vehicle.

- View live vehicle sensors in a meter, graph, or grid format
- View oxygen sensor live data and test results
- View all 11 Inspection/Maintenance systems and Mode 6 data
- Unlimited logging of live vehicle sensors in TXT, XML, or CSV (1ms logging accuracy)
- Playback your data logs for offline analysis
- Run and query specific component and system tests. Support for generic and enhanced bi-directional tests
- View generic and manufacturer enhanced data on the same tool
- English or Metric (SI) units of measure supported
- Configure your sensors' ranges, scaling value, audible alert triggers, units, and sampling rate
- Savable configurations. Set up the interface to suit your preferences and save it so you never have to do it again
- Supports 1996 and newer passenger vehicles, whether it be domestic, Asian, or European. SAE interfaces: J1850 (PWM and VPM), ISO-9141-2, ISO-14230 [KWP2000], and CAN [11bit and 29bit]
Something ScanTool offers that the others don't:
- True Plug-n-Play USB 2.0 interface1
- Factory scan tool options available (not included in base kit) All generic scan tools can only access the powertrain, no matter what SAE Modes (J1979/J2190) they use for communication. With our expansions, you can access dozens of systems (ABS, transmission, GEM, SRS/Airbags, Instrument Cluster, etc.) generic scan tools can't even see. This gives you access to thousands of sensors and dozens of bi-directional controls/system tests. Click here for complete enhanced option details.
- Optional expansions allowing you to communicate with non-OBD-II vehicles like the Powerstroke, Duramax, and Cummins diesels.
- Bi-directional support. You have the ability to initiate system and component tests2
- Mode 6 support. If a system test fails, now you can see the results from the failing component; not just the system. Our Mode 6 data is fully translated so you don't have to waste hours looking the scale and definitions.2
- Mode 9 support. Full ECM information including CAL, CVN, and VIN reporting
- Support for CAN and even the CAN 6x Mode3
- Support for the new extended sensor list (233 sensors--supporting the SAE J1979 May 2007 additions)
- Includes SpeedTracer - a performance analysis software for your PC or PDA!
- ALL the OBD-II vehicle interfaces in a single cable, rugged case. This is a savings of hundreds of dollars over the competitors' units
