Greetings fellow Rover enthusiasts, long time/first time here. I've been looking for a mint low-mileage L322 from the BMW era for a while now and nearly pulled a trigger a few times, but faith always intervened. This time, however, I am fairly confident I'm getting one, having given a deposit on an '04 model with only 47k mi.
Being a BMW guy all of my life, I was very hopeful that factory BMW diagnostic (ISTA-P/D, Autologic, etc.) would work on these but a quick call to a peer in the field shattered those dreams, hence my question: is there a semi-professional grade diagnostic tool on the market for BMW-drivetrain Rovers? By semi-professional, I mean:
- ability to read/clear fault codes in all installed control units;
- ability to read live date from all installed control units;
- ability to perform rudimentary coding, such as EDC calibration, ABS/SRS re-coding after component replacement, etc.;
Majority of tools I came across start with above features for 2010+ models and I haven't been able to find anything for 2003-2005 vintage. Without proper diagnostic I suspect working on these cars is not unlike to flying blind: terrifyingly exhilarating and bound to end up very badly.
Appreciate any advice on my conundrum.

Hello, I use the GAP IID Bluetooth tool from GAP diagnostics in Canada, for my 2004 L322 TD6.

I can pretty much do everything that you require from a LandRover specific OBD 2 tool.
There is also the All Comms 111 tool from Storey Wilson in Canada:-

and the Nanocoms from Blackbox Solutions:-
https://www.nanocom-diagnostics.com/
Any of these three tools should provide you with all of the OBD diagnostic functionality you require.

Thanks JMS! I checked the websites above and it seems that with exceptions of Nanocom, the others don't do a whole lot of coding/component activations. Definitely want to investigate this further to see if there's a semi-pro version that can do close to it all.
