    OBDwiz: official announcement

    OBDwiz is an OEM version of TouchScan, and is a feature-packed, easy-to-use diagnostic software that is included free of charge with all ScanTool.net PC-based scan tools.

    We've been quietly shipping it since April 1st, but today is the official launch date. If you purchased your scan tool within the last three weeks, you have it already.

    More information and screenshots are available here:

    Enjoy!

    What if we have a tool that is older than that? Can we get a copy? I got mine at the AFKFest and would love to see what the new tool can do.

    Same here, it looks great.
    I have an ELMScan5 and want to upgrade the standard software to this.

    Our agreement with the software vendor expressly prohibits selling OBDwiz separately. However, you can contact [email protected] with proof of purchase, to get a discount code that will enable you to buy TouchScan (which has identical functionality) for $14.95.

    If you purchased your scan tool within the past few weeks from an authorized distributor (such as MP3Car), contact the distributor and ask them if they can email you an OBDwiz license key. Unfortunately I can't provide an exact date range, because of the great variance in distributors' stock levels.

    Best regards,

    So Vitaliy, are you saying there is no functionality differences between TouchScan and OBDwiz ?

    Hi Vitaliy,
    Looking at the screen shots I notice that the dashboard version has L/km fuel consumption. Is there an ability to input the fuel tank size so that km-to-empty can be displayed ?

    I don't think so, but I'm sure it's something that OCTech can add to the next update.

    Hi Vitaliy,
    Sorry if I appear to be a pain but I have some more questions to help me clear things for me.
    Since I bought my ELMscan5-USB from another member some time ago then I would not be eligible for the update to OBDwiz (I presume) and therefore need to understand the best software to purchase for use on my WinXP carputer.

    On the scantool.net/software webpage, Dashcommand is noted as skinable for carpc's and Touchscan is still listed while OBDwiz is not.
    Can you let us know the differences between Dashcommand and OBDwiz and when it will be offered for separate sale if Touchscan is outdated ?
