On the sides you can see the Cheapest GENUINE ELM327 Interfaces offered on Amazon by ScanTool.net. In this price range ONLY this tool contains REAL ELM327 MicroChip Inside! ScanTool Officially confirmed for me that ElmScan 5 is made with genuine ELM327 MicroChip from Elm Electronics. ScanTool also confirmed that ElmScan 5 will work with all of the OBD2 Software made for Genuine ELM327 Interfaces. Please note that only Genuine ELM327 Diagnostic Tool will work with any ELM Compatible Software already made and with the software which will be available in the future. What does it mean for ElmScan 5 Users? Answer is easy: It means that ElmScan 5 is the cheapest Professional OBD2 ScanTool which will cover even the future OBD2 needs without upgrading the Interface. I hope that after reading the reviews on my website you will realize that I know what I am talking about and it will be much easier for you to decide if the ElmScan 5 is good to try by yourself.
ScanTool based on Elm327 is the universal OBD2 Interface compatible with lots of OBD2 software. Elm327 is also very easy to buy all around the world but you have to be CAREFULL about the cheapest online offers because there is many illegal ELM clones from China which are bad designed and may cause problems or even the fire in your car! China clones DOES NOT support all Elm327 Programs because they are not made with genuine Elm327 Chip. Most of those clones are based on the old cloned version of ELM Chip. One more thing to consider is that most of the Elm327 Programs are able to recognize if the OBD2 ScanTool is made with cloned or genuine ELM MicroChip. If you have a Chineese Cloned Elm327 Interface then most of the professional OBD2 software will not even recognize Cloned Diagnostic Tool. Personally I would definitely go for ElmScan 5 made by ScanTool.net. Mostly because of the quality which ScanTool offer for so affordable price but also because they will supply you completely FREE of charge with Genuine OBDwiz Diagnostic Software. Basically OBDWiz covers all standard Engine Diagnostic. It is User Friendly Program which will easily Read, Display and finally Clear Engine Diagnostic Trouble Codes.
Elm327 covers most of the currently available OBD2 protocols like: ISO 15765-4 CAN, SAE J1850 PWM, SAE J1850 VPW, ISO 9141-2, ISO 14230-4 and SAE J1939. Basically it means that Elm327 covers most of the currently available vehicles for full engine diagnostic. Some professional OBD2 Software are also able to follow diagnostic on other electronic control modules like airbags, transmission, power steering or ABS Brakes. Elm327 is the most popular tool for private users and many car mechanics due to being so universal and useful for lots of different cars. I strongly recommend buying only Genuine Elm327 based tool for anybody who wants to start with the Car Diagnostic for the first time. ElmScan 5 is the easiest way to start learning about Diagnostic of our Modern Cars.
