Foxwell GT80 Reviews:
- Very pleased with the scanner, works brilliantly and updated fine. A++
- Excellent tool.
I look after and maintain a number of different vehicles, and got tired of having to use and maintain different diagnostic tools for each model.
After much research I settled on the GT 80, and I am really pleased. Does what it says, and model support is extensive.
Only thing I have an issue with is early model Range Rovers, as coverage is limited, but will still read and reset engine codes.
Also, as the GT80 is essentially just a windows tablet, I am running the specialist Range Rover tools on there as well, so still makes life easier.
Very pleased with my investment.
