I bought this case for an Actron code reader. When it arrived the first thing I noticed was the strap in the case would not adjust to the size of my reader-the Velcro portion of the straps only extended from the end of the strap about 1.5 inches back, which meant they didn't touch when the strap was adjusted to the size of the reader. To hold my reader securely, the Velcro would have to be longer to attach to each other. As is it now, the reader is essentially unsecured in the case. I could use the pocket on the other side of the case, but I use that for the manual. Aside from this (which I plan on correcting with some Velcro strips purchased at Wal Mart), the case is great! It is large enough for the reader, manual, the extended cable if you have one, plus other "stuff" you might want to include inside. Overall, a great product.

This scanner is the best! Highly recommended. After two visits to the Ford dealer I decided to try and save some dough by purchasing a scanner. Don't spend anymore money at the dealer! This thing can do everything and is pretty sophisticated so I would suggest you pick up the Haynes book as well. The cable is 5 feel long so you won't need an extension. 2003 Ford F-150. Bought it used after my 91 RAM rusted away.

This is my first car code scanner and it is very easy to use. Updating was easy once I realized I had to turn off my antivirus software for the download and update. I most definitely recommend this product for car enthusiasts.

Great product! Check codes quickly with a modest description of code. In addition, it shows various sensors data (rpm, voltage, positions, temp, load and many others) and other various on board data that would normally require you to go to a professional shop for. I bought this scanner since I was having a problem with my rear O2 sensor in one of my cars, which was consistently pulling 2 codes for that sensor. Initially i was resetting it hoping it was a glitch, since i wasn't in any mood to buy a rear O2 and lift the car to replace it. Well luckily with the scanner, I've observed that the voltages were stagnant under all conditions. Now this was strange since the voltages dictate the exhaust temperature. The front O2 was showing varying voltages under different loads. well, to make a long story short it turns out that the sensor wiring was frayed requiring an easy splice. Highly Recommend!

Very well product aid if your "service engine" light ever shows. The auto detection feature as soon as you plug the scanner to your car's computer is just great! No additional set up and you are scanning for codes! My vehicle in particular didn't have the light on to begin with, but since it's required to go trough the State Emissions test every 3 months and it has almost 250 thousand miles on it, it's a great tool to have to avoid surprises and to give you peace of mind. Even if your car is running perfectly, you can use the other features to review your car's performance. I did a scan before and after a spark plugs, oil, oil filter, air filter and gas filter change and you can see immediately how they affect the values on the scanner. I haven't had the need to use the code Connect feature yet, but knowing what the trouble code means, the best possible solutions, and where the troublesome sensor or part is located in your vehicle in my opinion makes the money you spend on the scanner well worth it.

Works great right out of the box! Followed with all necessary instructions for the software updates and everything worked great as well. Don't forget to download and use the latest software version from Actron web-site. I do wish the cable would disconnect from the scanner for easy storage but is OK permanently connected as well.
