Launch X431 ???

Bonjour All !

I saw this today on E-bay

2013 Launch X431 x 431 Diagun Full Set Diagnostic Scanner 5 Years Free Updates | eBay

I asked a couple of questions to the seller ..

After the free 3 or 5 years the update will cost 35/USA$

and if you don't want to update still be able to use it ...

My question is, has anybody tried it ... ?

Thank you and have a great day !

The Launch Diagun will work - regardless if you get the updates or not. Unfortunately the supplier/dealer that you have the link from has nothing to do with the updates...More than likely you will never get the updates. They know that after 60 days you can't file a paypal claim - so it makes no difference. The supplier is LAUNCH ASIA DIVISION - the Diagun you are getting on eBay is meant for the ASIAN market and you can't update it or register it online (it needs an ASIAN IP). The updates can be had for about $300/year if you want direct from LAUNCH as they come out. So basically it will be like a registered Diagun thay costs $2799 from MAC. If you need more info, let me know. Or if you want to know if it will work with a particular model - PM, me.

The same goes for the Autel 708 units. They are cheap on ebay and even Amazom. The minute the serial number goes online no updates if was not purchased through an authorized Autel dealer,
