Hello guy's, since I was sleepless, completely forgot, my shop foreman has his scanner/oscilloscope up for grabs.

He is asking 6g's. Scope module is obviously included at this price.

Now, I must say, this is 6g's canadian. So I don't know what that makes in US$. But anyway, just thought I would put that out there to help my shop friend/foreman get a bigger market than just up here in quebec.

If you want to barter, I can surely put forth an offer.

Here are a few pics. 40143608_10156646184986252_6148221336054398976_n.jpg40192431_10156646185056252_3000434689509949440_n.jpg40212330_10156646184746252_6675992144362078208_n.jpg40213587_10156646184831252_3259814185491496960_n.jpg40227571_10156646185131252_3351022879788498944_n.jpg40241051_10156646184896252_712038627726589952_n.jpg

Normally, these go for about 5g's used, but since it has the docking station and it's so clean, that adds value. So, again, barter away, I will convey any interest.

What worse considering instant depreciation is driving a new vehicle off the lot, even worse is the $350,000.00 motorhome once the five minute warranty is worn off.

Worse than this is used electronic equipment, would be lucky to get a hundred bucks for a $13,000.00 scope. But there is no longer use for equipment like this today, everything you buy is throwaway. And our entire electronic industry was given to China by our crooked politicians.

Did a net search on that Snap-on, prices are all over the place, and this stuff needs new software every year.

Scanner virus is sold
That J box looks like a nexiq? Is it?
Since this thread revived it self and I forgot to remove it, no jig, I dont think it is a nexit, the nexit is more a clone. I think snap on sourced car daq for this one one software, but not entirely sure, and snap on is all but out of buisness at my shop, we dont see him any more.

But the interface is sure spot on picture wise, but the chip inside meets a more demanding protocal.

I am a sort of hobbyist when it comes to this stuff, so my explaination is very beginner.

So bear with me, ;)

The source code inside not not meets requirments of today. But it is a viable option.

So basically, I am just parroting what the other nick said.

It is not really the hard ware that makes the difference, it is the software.

The code if you wish. I am way to tired to even delve into that, and as a few of my mentors here, I dont feel inclined.

Normally when your looking into investing in something like this, you need to focus on baud rate and if possible, know what chip is driving the unit.

The updates nickd was talking about is essential.

And yes, they are expensive.

As an example, my personnal scanner was able to adas and other functions with an upgrade of software. No modification done to tool as per sey.

It is very hard to not get into a debate and not talk about china here.

My updates are around a grand or so a year, but since we are a high volume shop, three scanners on hand. So we can rotate and keep cost down.

The unit I am using is on a samsung chip, and I have been using it intensly for a while now.

So before this goes anyfurther, yeah the hard ware is key, but not the killer of what you can do, the new cars are real fast, need upgrade, and if you cant talk to the network at lets say 500k bites per second, you will just get communication errors and such

And here, again, I am just being redonkulous at this point (my sister likes that word so I use it) so if I understand this correctly, 500k is a half of 1 g network, now, we are talking 5g network all talking together. I am sure I will get either corrected or confirmed. In this case, we are talking about some kind of ad hoc network, and the chip is essential, but if not meeting industry stands, your nice tool is now a nice paper weight.

The tesla right now talk to each other at a ridiculous speed that would put my mother to sleep. Or my greek gf. ;):giveup::giveup:

as proof, I did try to talk with cheap elms in various types of situ, they all got hot and burned, could not handle the speed on transfer of info. It was nice to understand that. I did not go to university, so I cannot say anything to prove that, it is just experience that brought me to see, and most of ths is proprietary software, not proprietary hard ware, it is all clone shyte anyway.

So that was my $.02 kinda of acknowledging Nickd comment, but without going into a debate of should we invade china.

I for one, as a canadian, would never want to invade china, to many ppl there, will run out of camouflage and bullets cuz we dont actually make good camo and bullets, so, when shyte hits fan, chian will just overcome by sheer numbers.
Yeah, on this, my gf cat is in heat, pissing me off, and trying not to kill it cuz my gf likes it.

:eek:

so, to conclude this tid bit of mine, autel, and yes it is chinese, is very robust. But if that nexiq works for you and you only scan one car per week, should be fine for your needs, but if your a full blown tech guy like me, you will burn it in no time like I burn my gf pc plural. Heads up.

I am sorry for that last diatribe of mine, cat had me going nuts and in fowl mood.

So my disclaimer, buy what works and lasts and still has support.

If my service guy told me one thing only works in win xp environment then when I change vehicle I have to go win7 etc yadayada etc BS, I would be flipping the bird. On site, dont have time to be doing virtual win machines at same time, clients would be flipping out.

As a hobbyist, I would sure like to see how this strap on virus look alike works, but in a shop, it would probably end up in garbage bin after a week of useless use.

So that in essence is all I have to say.
