Coded the hatch to close with the remote which was nice.
(BTW, I just watched your awesome pressure washer video mentioned in the other thread - , and having gas and a karcher electric one myself, I agree completely on the difference. I find myself using the karcher all the time now, and have never felt a need to fire up the gas one.)

Am I correct in assuming that the Foxwell is not able to do the firmware programming required to re-map the temp gauge breakpoints?

PSA: Schwaben/Foxwell NT510 group buy $149

Yes correct. No coding really (a couple small but good exception like can code new parts like steering angle sensor)

The 520 button delay also the 510 it's just very slow CPU. I've learned to press a button to say select the next function then I press up or down to queue up the next command and I get feedback that it's actually loaded the model when I see the active line switch.

Like mentioned doesn't really do coding and cant do the breakpoints on the temp gauge. You need pa soft and a notebook computer for that.

Its still handy to have the foxwell with you all the time in the car though.

So what’s the benefit of this over a generic Scanner like a Launch?

At the end of the day no cheapo hand held scanner is going to let you do proper diagnostic (you’ll always need ISTA/INPA for that), so why not get a generic one that you can use on other makes as well?

The key to the foxwell is it eliminates the requirement of a laptop for more service. You can do some hardware assigment like replacing angle sensor or I think even abs module.

It will activate a good amount of things like being able to engage the AC compressor or fan directly, roll up or down a window, or hit the trunk release etc. (helps to figure out if a switch is bad or a relay).

And these Foxwells do also have generic OBDII functionality. So you can do all the basic stuff that a normal generic OBDII scanner can do on any OBDII car you like (although yes, there is a range in functionality there) - Honda, Chevy, Bugatti, etc.. And then for the specific manufacturer you choose, you get a much deeper level of diagnostics and active tests you can run.

And the BMW software option here will also work on your neighbor's Mini and your Rolls Royce.

Depending on the car the gerneic is stupid good. Volvo for example when there is a dtc it asks what car then proceeds to tell me the internal Volvo code. Can't do active control but for scanning it's pretty good.
