Launch iCarScan VCI Bluetooth Scanner, the update version of iDiag, is for Android only no iOS version available. iCarScan features in 5 Brand Vehicle Software for Free.

The difference between Launch idiag and iCarScan:
Someone says software is basically same. Launch ICarScan comes with 5 models free @ $66 each other than that I think maybe the same tool, you do not have to choose models when you register, you can add them as you find you need them. And you don’t have to download the 5 free software during the first time setup, I have downloaded only 2 of those 5 and will download the rest three one by one at once there is a need for new brand. I don’t know if the update support of the later installed software will be year but this does not really matter. However I believe that I need to download all brands before one year from first subscription.
