ENHANCED SCAN ADVISOR
This product has some great features.
I recently purchased this tool and it has been a very useful addition to my shop. I have had no problems with the tool and it has provided all the information I need to diagnose problems on the vehicles I used it on. I am hoping that some updates are added soon that will make this tool even more handy and increase it uses. It is also very easy to use

Does What I need it to.
My first impressions of the Scan Advisor where some what dubtful at first, but after playing with it for about an hour I found it to be a very useful tool. Its easy to operate and covers most everything Ive needed it for so far. Ive had it for about three weeks now, and over all its a good tool that Im happy to have for my business.

!WOW! What an improvement
At first I was a bit skeptical on if I should INVEST in this product. I based my decision on reviews online. Many of these techs are in dealerships and expect for this tool to do everything under the sun. When I was searching for my next scanner I looked for the features it would offer in my field of expertise. In this case it was symptom based diagnosis. I do not consider myself a very experience master tech even though I have been in the field for almost five years, but I do invest in tools that will give me the upper hand in the future. I am currently working on many Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeeps at this time and with the bi-directional functions that are offered with this scanner for Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep it is more than enough to get me through without buying the Chrysler OEM tool. I believe with this tool in my tool box I will have a upper hand in the future. A scanner with these features and functions can only get better in the future just like many OEM tools they come up with updates to improve in most cases, it is only up from here. I believe this is the best bang for the buck at this point in time.

Product reads data well and wide coverage
When using product it does lock up and must remove battery to unlock it. Also noticed it does not read oxygen sensor data for GM vehicles. It did not work for a 95 and older ford vehicle. Other than that the product has many desirable features and lines of data that are very desirable.

Great all around
The tool connects flawlessly to all the domestic cars that I have linked to. It is the first tool I pick up when I have a SRS or ABS light that comes in for repair. It does have a lot of really good features. The updates on this tool will only make it better.

Product does not meet expectations.
I have had this product for about 3 weeks and it does not do what it claims. I have hooked it to several vehicles and it does not have the right engine size for them and i went as trying the year before and after and it still does not have it.

Excellent diagnostic tool for the small investment
So far this is a very easy to use product. I didn't even read the instructions very well before i used it. And also i work on heavy equipment and industrial generators. But we do work on the company vehicles which are both gasoline and medium duty diesel trucks. So this has come in very handy around the shop and for side work. I have not used this scan tool on any asian vehicles yet. But so far this is the best tool on the market for the money. Especially for those of us who have the knowledge to work on modern obd2 vehcles but don't work in a automoblie service shop. It is great investment over the more pricier competitors. I would recommend this product to anyone who at the novice level to intermediate levels. If you are at the expert level then you need a scan tool that is capable of doing more. I hope this review helps those of you just considering buying this product to buying it. You won't be disappointed.
