Foxwell NT500 VAG Scanner DIY Diagnostic and coding

26. února 2016 v 8:07
I recently investigated a Foxwell NT500 VAG scanner for my Audi B7 A4 2008. I'm tired of lugging my laptop out to the cars to use VC*S and other PC-based systems, and Torque app & ELM327 Bluetooth adapter doesn't have this functionality.
The Foxwell makes good diagnostic scanners as AUTEL. I think the difference is that Foxwell scanner is subdivided to different regions and car brands. It will scan and read diagnostic codes for any OBDII auto, but does not have the extended editing capabilities for all.
The Foxwell NT500 scanner I bought from only US$169.00 and well packed in a small bag.
Packing including:
Foxwell nt500 main unit
A USB cable
A main test cable
A mini software CD
Manual book
A carry bag
It seems very comprehensive.
It runs off power from the diagnostic port but it is able to power up with the key off. At that point you can navigate through model selection.
I did some investigation before buying the device and found that the NT500 scanner appears to be capable of almost all functions (coding, adjusting headlights, taillight brightness, key fob tricks, system diagnostics, etc.) that a Ross-Tech cable does. And it has the capacity to update software via SD card. Thought there is little document on update part.
The adaptation functions covers documented and undocumented settings. The documented settings gives an explanation of the parameter and suggested values.
I first disabled the seat belt chime under "Adaptation" function item.
