2) Functions:

Basic OBD2 functions:

As you probably expect the scanner reads OBD2 DTCs. That means if your car is OBD2 compatible you can use this device to read and clear ECU codes. Each code comes with a brief description to help you understand the fault and possible fixes.

Basically, clearing ECU fault codes will turn off the Check Engine Light. So if you’re looking for a Foxwell scanner for doing that then this is it.

Not sure whether your car is OBD2 compatible? All 1996 and newer vehicles are OBD2 compatible. If your car falls into that category it’s almost certain you can use this tool for its diagnosis.

Advanced functions:

In addition to basic OBD2 functions, the Foxwell NT510 supports special functions as well.

First off, you can use it for coding/programming, deactivation, the adaptation of components, and resetting replacement control modules. For example, it does service oil reset, TPMS programming, SAS calibration and regeneration of DPF.

Secondly, it gives access to various systems, including chassis, powertrain, and body. As such, you can use it to service those systems. A few common ones include EPB service, ABS service, and airbag service.

Thirdly, the Foxwell NT510 retrieves vehicle information, specifically ECU information. It’s important to have such info because you’ll know things like the last time the engine’s codes were erased, parts that were replaced and so much more.

 

Live data

Fitted on this Foxwell scanner is a 2.8-inch color TFT screen with a backlight. It displays live sensor data in both graphical and text format. That should make it easy to analyze diagnostic results.

Even better, you can tune the scanner to a language of your preference. Your options include English, French, Spanish, German, Swedish, Russian, Chinese and Hungarian.

Easy to take

With a total weight of 1.3 pounds and dimensions of 10 x 3 x 7 inches, this Foxwell scan tool is one of the most portables out there. It is a handheld device. When not in use it can fit in a toolbox or driver’s compartment with ease.

 

3) Car list

Acura, Alfa Romeo, Abarth, Au Ford, BMW, Mini, Chrysler, Fiat, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Holden, Land Rover, Jaguar, Toyota, Lexus, Scion, Maserati, Opel & Vauxhall, Rolls-Royce, VW, Audi, Skoda, Seat, Porsche, Mazda, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Volvo

Car software authorization for NT510 scanner

 

4) Register & Update

Foxwell NT510 update is free lifetime after the end user register the tool on the official site foxwelltech.com.

Real user share the experience on how to register and use NT510:

This scanner (Foxwell NT510 ) paid for itself over and over again. I registered my BMW battery with it and reset about 12 fault codes. When you receive your scanner and paid for 1 free software you will need to register your scanner. When you register the scanner make sure you remove your password. You then will need to take the sad card out of the scanner and put it into a usb reader and insert it into your computer. Once you have it inserted in your computer go to foxwelltech.com and download the software onto the SD card. It will be a zip file. To install the software on your as carr you will need a unzip software which you can download free from the internet. When you unzip the software it will automatically put an icon of the car or truck brand on your scanner. Done! I would like to point out that if you have problems registering your scanner you may need to re-regi SD ter with a different email. It will ask for the scanner serial number which you will input into the web site. Then you should be able to choose what software you want to download. Good luck. You will not be disappointed you purchased this scanner. It’s very easy to use to reset codes, save we trouble codes, run live diagnostics. I’m going to get a software file for my Chevy Suburban next.

 

5) Foxwell NT510 advantages

      • Low budget scanner with high-end features.
      • Plug-and-play device without connecting to the computer.
      • Supports full system OBD2 diagnosis.
      • Easy to use and provides handy definitions and suggested fixes.
      • Sturdy and ergonomic design.

 

6) Foxwell NT510 disadvantages

The manual is not so easy to understand. If you don’t have experience with OBD tools you may find it hard to figure functionality just from the manual.

7) Target users:

The Foxwell NT510 is ideal for auto enthusiasts and owners of small garages. Its wide vehicle coverage and advanced functionality mean you can access several systems of virtually any OBD2 car.

1). Reviews

Success list:

Have an Autel MS906TS. I find scan tools interesting, and I love to own and use them. The Chinese brands give so much value for money (Autel, Launch, Foxwell). Among Chinese made scanners, I know least about Foxwell. But so far yours seems like the best compact scanner out there for a DIY. And even live data graphing, wow. I’m really curious about the GT80 Mini more than the Plus version. That’s their newest scanner with Win10Pro. The Plus has Win8.1Pro and I don’t think it’s wireless like the Mini. And last I wanna say, dont buy Launch Diagun IV, I did as it is a compact Android based scanner. The newest model from Launch. But it is more expensive and with a lot less live data functions that the Foxwell NT644 Pro.

-I bought an nt644 last week and I am really happy with it. I bought it as its able to register new batteries as needed in newer bmws etc and also the park brake reset as more and more cars have them

Live data in the Foxwell NT644 Pro scan tools are great. Every bit of information are sometimes greatly useful.

It is actually a great tool, I’m a user of this tool from past couple of months.

– it has TPS settings

The difference between TPS settings and throlle body adjustment or alignment: when you replace to send to you have to calibrate it the Foxwell will allow you to calibrate it so the car knows where it is and what it is doing

– has throttle relearn on some cars, worked a threat on the misses mk4 golf.

– Can do SRS reading

– Been very impressed with every Foxwell tool I’ve used, for the money and for what it can do no complaints my end.

– it does do graphs.

Failure List…

– it has no bi directional controls on its

– has no coding and programming capabilities

Service: Foxwell NT644 update to Foxwell NT644 pro to perform all of

EPB+Oil+DPF+TPS/TBA+BRT.

No:Foxwell NT644 can’t perform Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) functions, car battery configuration, SAS and Bi-directional control tests. But you can pay extra money if you need these functions.

1). Reviews

The graphing capabilities and on-board software are very good. Testing with the engine running permits the operator to watch live data such as coolant temp, O2 operation, RPM, Voltage, etc…these can be stored on the SD card for playback).

The amount of vehicles stored onboard is excellent compared to other devices.

The ability to clear ABS codes and Airbag codes is significant, but BEWARE, as with other functions, this varies by vehicle and manufacturer…for whatever reason, some specific vehicles are not part of the database “but we will be adding more soon” (see other reviews). The manufacturer requests you contact them for specific vehicles, and this process isn’t quick…my requests took over a week.

Tested:
-2014 Acura MDX (All codes checked, live graphing, CAN and OBDII OK)
-2015 Honda CR-V (All codes checked, live graphing, CAN and OBDII OK)
-2007 Dodge Ram 1500 (All codes checked, live graphing, CAN and OBDII OK)
-2018 Honda Fit (All codes checked, live graphing, CAN and OBDII OK)
-2005 Acura MDX (All codes checked, live graphing, CAN and OBDII OK)
-1993 Mazda MX-3 (Mazda OBD1 Cable conversion used, no codes available, unit stalled, using OBDII menu as instructed by Manufacturer)
-1995 Honda Del Sol (Honda OBD1 Cable conversion used, no codes available, unit stalled, using OBDII menu as instructed by Manufacturer)
-1989 Honda Civic (Honda OBD1 Cable conversion used, no codes available, unit stalled, using OBDII menu as instructed by Manufacturer).

Foxwell NT630 can also be used while operating the vehicle (with an observer using the equipment of course!), and live driving conditions can be graphed, noted.

5.Foxwell NT301

1). Reviews

FoxWell NT301 unit is reasonably well constructed and should survive the odd knock or two. The screen is clear and the keyboard firm and positive to use. As the keyboard is not of the membrane type then I guess one should keep liquids/fluid away from it.
(Tip: Go to last paragraph for the detailed unit and PCB pictures )
The EOBD connecting lead is of adequate length and well finished with moulded strain reliefs at both ends.

The on-board HELP is very limited but the User Manual is concise and informative so not too much to complain about really.

The three dedicated LEDs (Green – all Ok, Yellow – pending DTCs, Red – firm DTCs – MIL light activate) give a great quick guide as to vehicle EOBD status.

My 14 year faithful old Citroen Xsara Picasso 1.8l 16v suddenly started to lose power and idle erratically and the engine fault light came on. Not knowing much about modern fuel injection systems. I read on the Picasso Owners forum about code readers and bought this one. To cut along story short, it worked !!! The codes showed the EGR valve and the fuel injectors to be the possible causes. The EGR valve was full of hard deposits, easily cleaned though. The fuel injectors will be cleaned or replaced. The car is running quite well now and averages about 38 mpg in the rural area were I live . Motor service outfits where I live charge about £40 to examine the codes logged on a cars computer, goodness knows what a Citroen Agency would charge! The NT301 is well made and sturdy and I had no problems installing the software on my computer.

The lifetime free software updates are a big bonus. Although a scan tool of this type only focusses/dedicates itself to EOBD diagnostics and regular updating is not required the ability and access to free updates is most welcome.

1.Best functionality – Foxwell NT510 & NT520 & Foxwell NT644 Pro

2.Best functionality + Widest vehicle coverage – Foxwell NT644 Pro

3.Personal customized – Foxwell NT520 & NT510

4.Simple OBD2 diagnostic tool – Foxwell NT624 & NT301
