Launch CReader VII+ Reviews:


I bought Creader vii+ prime with a Saturday delivery. I immediately updated it to the latest software and it took about 20 minutes. It was pain free and pretty simple to do on a Vista Machine. I downloaded all the parameters for every car. Plugged it into my 1999 Volvo and it worked perfectly. Troubleshoot a bad O2 sensor and not working fuel gauge. Looked at live data, scanned the engine computer and even got the Volvo factory codes out of it. What a great product. 5 stars.


So far so good with Launch Creader vii+ reader. It has a lot of detailed information about my 2012 Camry. It allowed me to clear one DTC code that seems like (hopefully) has fixed my intermittent issues.The only thing that was somewhat weird was the update feature. It wasn’t super difficult, just a bit confussing and a long URL to type in to find the right site to download the update. Lack of thourough instructions on the process as well, but it’s easy enough to figure out once you get the correct site to download the updates from. I can verify that it updated correctly on Windows 10 Home Edition, it’s just there is no reference for that operating system, only Windows XP, 7 and 8.


Works great everything I need to find it does, it picked up an ABS sensor with ease the dealership wanted 165.00 to scan my car.Code reader paid for itself right away
