I must have one OBD scanner for most worldwide famous car models, no need cover truck models. I simply want to do basic OBD diagnosing, not programming anything.
I saw VDM UCANDAS advertised as greater than autocom, it claims one-year free update at official website, and blends with newest cars approximately 2014.
I spent about 280USD, got one, it arrived recently, it came with main unit with OBDII cable, software driver and USB cable, package really is easy weighed against Launch X431 and Autel scanner which set with many adapters.
I installed VDM UCANDAS on Win7 successfully (uobd2.net claims Windows XP, Windows 7, Windows 8. No WP8/Win8 RT support), simple to install, no requirement to activate. WIFI connection and Bluetooth supported.
I've not much issue with VDM UCANDAS Language; they come in English as default. Users may add two more language as will by sending machine serial number towards supplier.
I tested VDM UCANDAS successfully many car models after 2000 year, like 2012 honda cr-v, Jeep, Dodge, part of cars around 2014 year. I'd trouble with Renault Fluence, Saab 93 and Ford, I figured VDM can’t cover these cars, later I learned there're before 2000 year, VDM can’t cover.
VDM UCANDAS mainly for OBD diagnosis, support key programming, SI reset, sensor setting for just a portion of cars.
