Launch X431 V or Launch X431 V+ was created by John Curtis
Looking to get a new scan tool. Particular the Launch x431 line-up. Would appreciate any and all input before I make a decision.

Thinking out loud always helps me in the process.

I've been getting familiar with the X431 Pad II AE that my shop provides, and it definitely has it's ups and downs. :silly:

Love the coverage and features. Does tons of stuff that Snap-On and Autel won't, which can be a real life saver in some situations. For example, I was replacing an HVAC module in a F-150 last month. New module requires a PMI procedure. Autel wouldn't do it, but the Launch said, "No problem!" :cheer: Saved us a programming fee and a lot of time.

Hate the way data is displayed, and the graphing. Drives me insane. :angry: :silly: The interface is also less than intuitive, and takes some getting used to.

Launch seem to cover more vehicle than anybody else, also in my experience they connect first time to difficult vehicles

Thank you both for the insight. Going to be placing the order for it as soon as I settle into my new state.

My shop has a verus and big daddy autel, but I always go for my launch scan pad. I like that it's smaller and has the coverage. Like Tyler said, the graphing is a joke. Autoscaling is terrible. Snap on has the best graphing in my opinion but the verus takes freaking forever to boot up.

I from Kingbolen,we sell Launch scan tool.

Many guys ask this question
"what's the difference between X431 V and V+ ? "

Screen size:
V 8inch V+ 10inch

Exterior & Function : Same
That's no difference if you do light cars diagnose.

So,what is the difference ?
Think about the V+ & HD module if you do Heavy truck diagnose.
