3. Bi-Directional Control +Active Test + Adaptation+ Matching+ Reset + Initialization+Coding
ECU CODING: X431 PRO MINI features advanced ECU coding that many aftermarket diagnostic tools don't support. You can use it to activate a new ECU to work on some special vehicle without using expensive original equipment. It is used to reprogram adaptive data for vehicle control modules after repairs or replacements of vehicle parts.
BI-DIRECTIONAL SCANNER CONTROLS: A single directional scanner will only report to you fault codes and other anomalies with the car. A Bi-directional scanner also reports fault codes and anomalies from the car's ECU, and it can send commands to the car to activate different systems for testing. Hence the addition of 'bi' to the word bi-directional, meaning two-way communication between the scanner and the car's ECU.
REMOTE DIAGNOSIS: REMOTE DIAGNOSIS Not only users can launch the remote diagnosis with other diagnostic scanners of the LAUNCH family, which are equipped with this module as well, also they can ask for the remote control through phones, tablets, and computers, etc. It has realized the reality that a mechanic can diagnose an abnormal vehicle that is even thousands of miles away.
ACTIVE TEST: Figure out whether a specific subsystem or component in your car functions well or not by using LAUNCH X431 PRO MINI to make the tester outputs function instead of checking in ignition status.
Matching: Also known as an adaptive function, it can adjust the data of the actuator so that the data of the replaced actuator can be accepted and recorded by ECU. For example, when you clean the carbon deposit on the throttle, there is an engine idle jitter. That's because your throttle angle change data is not recognized by ECU, resulting in inconsistent data, and the engine can not work accurately. You can make a match with Launch x431 pro mini to synchronize ECU data with throttle data after cleaning.

Launch Mini Pro Review:
Unlike other tablet diagnostic tools in landscape, this is a portrait code reader which gives me a totally different user experience. And there is a carry strap on its back, it’s convenient to easily hold it. I’d like to wave my glow for it and recommend it to all of you who look for the capabilities.
Both the caption and the description say two years' free dates. Great price for this car diagnostic tool. So far I have used on my cars for injector replacement. Great functions.
