Launch or Autel are good choices. Coverage depends on your pocketbook.

I was not impressed with the snap on guy. I ask him to give it to me in my hands. I made believe I would drop it, he squealed like a pig (its not paid for)

And then I dropped one of those china jobs off floor. It bounced back. I said 500$ bidirectional. Hack not included.

Forum rules prevent, but right now, autel is way more ahead than the launch. And snap on can go f themselves.

A tech who moves weight, does not need a complicated interface with the car.

Autel , 4 me, is like an arsehole, it does what it is supposed to do.

Right now, boss us investing heavily into all autel stuff. ADAS boxes coming in. All from china bypass.

wet dream scanner. the autel ultra

Has a scope AND a dvmm incorporated.

But do NOT buy this job and give it to a stoned apprentice off a bad hair day.

BTW, the autel cameras still suck, even if box say its ultra, it aint.

The rest good for global stuff.

6 or 7 grand, or more if you want the adas equip

Right know, boss is heavy in on autel.

large.

snap on so farm cant beat the coverage of ppl.

Things got viral, work shops as we knew have changed.

;):bat:
