No, that is not a new game controller. That is an OBD2 scanner. For those of you who are not familiar with the device yet, an OBD2 scanner is a device that can connect to a car that has been designed with the OBD2 technology in order to diagnose the condition of the car. This device is very useful, allowing for simple, quick, and accurate troubleshooting. And thanks to the wisdom of car manufacturers, many car models are now made using the OBD2 system, allowing an OBD2 scanner to be compatible with various car models. If you are a mechanic or a car owner who wants to have the fullest control over your car, you need to equip yourself with an OBD2 scanner. And the most powerful OBD2 scanners on the market right now are Launch CRP123 and Launch CRP129. These products offer extensive functions and features. Yet again, Launch CRP129 is more advanced and quite more expensive than Launch CRP123. What’s the difference?
From the looks, there isn’t a significant difference between the two models. Both have very similar looks. So we will just go straight to the functions and features. Of course, Launch CRP129 comes with more advanced functions and features than Launch CRP123. Launch CRP123 can read and clear codes on engine, ABS, A/T transmission, and SRS airbag. It can also show data stream display as well as historical data record and playback. Launch CRP129 has all the features of Launch CRP123, but there are also exclusive features, such as the steering angle sensor correction for Landrover, brake block reset for BMW, and engine oil light reset. In other words, Launch CRP129 is a much more comprehensive diagnostic tool than Launch CRP123.
Launch CRP129 is also compatible with more car models. Launch CRP123 supports 31 car models from America, Europe, and Asia. On the other hand, Launch CRP129 supports at least 42 brands of cars. It supports more European and Asian models.
The other aspects of the two models are more or less the same. As you can see, they each have a red body and a backlit display. The backlit display is a nice feat; it allows you to work in a dim or dark environment. Great when you need to troubleshoot a car at night. Both are also very compact, portable, and easy to handle.
Launch CRP123 vs CRP129
If you can benefit from the wider range of car compatibility and additional special features, then Launch CRP129 should be your choice. But Launch CRP123 is sufficient for most car owners already.
