  1. Purchased to check for fault codes on my Hyundai i40. Works great using OBD Auto Doctor software installed on a MacBook Air. I am yet to try it with any other computers or software.

  2. Its working ! but the software is still saying its not the right cord for the Forscan

  3. I have purchased quite a number of products from OBD2 AUSTRALIA over the years, due to the fact that i work on a multitude of different vehicles.
    Everything i have ever purchased turns op on time and the products always work straight out of the box with no effort.
    Anytime i have needed any information they respond rapidly via their email or live assistance chat box on their website.
    Highly recommend the company and their products.

  4. This unit works with JPdiag and allows you to reset service reminders on Ducati motorcycles. I can confirm it works with a 939 Supersport.

  5. Perform as advertised.
