Do you have personal experience with this piece of equipment? I have the snapon unit just not the module for the RR/BMW. For other cars its a very nice piece of diagnostic equipment that is not Vin locked.Rick-the-Pick said:With regards to the snap on piece of kit, it's in a different league altogether & be thankfull you never purchased it.
Lol almost spit out my coffee. I didn't post the long email thread, but I'll stop there. We could delete all of those posts and just leave the number of days till activation that was really my original intention. I got my activation codes and I am happy to have my paper weight turned into a faultmate.Rick-the-Pick said:I noticed from post you didn't like the invoice & the way it stated what you already agreed. So what went wrong at this stage with this agreement?
I feel like i've just wasted ten minutes of my life reading about a normal everyday transaction, between two different country's, between two people.
It seem's the complaint isn't even about the item, or in fact, range rovers in general.
Something like this should be kept between the parties involved, unless it's a doctors report that another person wants to publish on the forums.
To anyone in the US that buys one of these your looking at a minumum of 2 full days after you recieve you faultmate to get it working depending on when it arrives in your mail.
I have only had the unit working for 2 days now and spennt maybe 40min playing with it all together.
My only complaints and maybe its from a lack of user experience is I get tired of having to choose which modules I have in my car. It would be nice if you could scan your modules and then have only those modules show up. Sometimes I have to go read my scan just to figure out which modules I have, and even then that is not always accurate. For instance the body control module mine is V4 but scan shows up as neither V4 or V10.
Another very odd thing, I wanted to know battery voltage the only place I could find it was in suspension. :think: I would have expected this to be were the other engine "inputs" were located.
I also was not able to put to sleep one module I can't remember which at the moment, no matter how many times I tried I got a message stating the car stop communicating with faultmate. Even though everything else still worked just fine.
IMO these are minor issues and so far I have had a decent experience with the unit.
