Launch Creader 3001 Customer Review:
I used Launch Creader 3001 on 2006 BMW 325i and 98 Toyota Sienna. work great on both cars. Reading code is a lot faster than my 5 years old OBD scanner. The display is a little small and a bit hard to read the text, otherwise, it is a good scanner. The oxygen sensor test looks cool but I haven’t gotten a chance to try it yet.
Simple, cheap, and it works! Gave great live streaming info. Too bad I don’t know much of the data or have use for it at this time. But this would be really useful in the future. I mainly bought this to remove remove an code error. Although keep in mind, it you do not replace/repair the fault itself, the error will come back.
Launch Creader 3001 can find many of the car faults that even pricier scanners miss. It’s use is self explanatory, no need for a manual. It shows the fault codes and an English explanation of what the code means. For the price it’s a great tool.
I was using an OBD2 scanner that linked to my smartphone but unless I wanted to pay much money for an app that gave me more than the elementary functions it did not do enough. This Creader has many features and easy to use. No need for batteries as it runs off your car’s voltage. The screen is bright and very easy to read plus it has lots of features that my old one did not have unless you paid for a better app.
I used Launch C3001 to check the A/F and O2 sensors on my truck to determine if the sensors were bad or if I really needed to replace my catalytic converter. The I/M readiness information is useful when you are preparing for a smog inspection.
