These will vairy from unboxing, features and functions advanced coding and programming and we will even be visiting workshops to cover real diagnostic scenarios, from basic to professional as well as testing other awesome launch products.

So join us on this exciting journey where we share or decades of experience in order to assist you in either the use or the purchase of a vehicle diagnostic tool.

Today we are unboxing the latest Launch X431 Pro version 4. This is the fourth generation in the PRO series and is the best-selling range in South Africa when it comes to complete diagnostic solution.

Let’s open it up and take a look inside.

Firstly, it comes in a nice rugged protective carry case.

Inside we have our diagnostic tablet. This is dust, shock, and oil resistant which is necessary in a workshop environment.

It has a USB C charge port of fast charging, a rear facing camera and a power button on the side.

On the top you will see your 16 pin ODB2 vehicle communication interface adaptor. This is what communicates between the vehicle and the tablet via Bluetooth.

Its neatly stored in the tablet and you just push it down to release it and push it back in to store it.

We have our packing list and registration envelope, this is needed to activate the device. We will be doing and in-depth video on how to register, update and download the vehicle manufactures in a future video.

At the bottom you will see a total of 26 adaptors used for pre OBD2 vehicles (OBD1) which are mostly used on vehicle manufactures before 2001. The most common ones are the BMW 20 pin adaptor and the Mercedes 38 pin adaptor.

For Pre OBD2 vehicles you will need to use the OBD1 to OBD2 adaptor, it plugs into the OBD2 VCI and connects to the OBD plug to allow wireless communication.

You also get a USB C charging cable and 2 pin adaptor. An extension cable to minimize the risk of losing or breaking your Bluetooth connector.
