Launch Tech USA has introduced its
latest scan tool, the X431 Launch Pad. With its large 9.7-inch IPS color
touch screen and Windows 7, multiple applications can be utilized
simultaneously and at "blazing speeds," the company says. Performance is
further optimized with an automatic vehicle ID and module search
feature, greatly reducing the technician’s guesswork and diagnostic
time, according to the company.
The Launch Pad also boasts the latest in OBDII wireless technology with a
patented communications chip that utilizes LPT (Large Packet Transfer)
Technology, offering the fastest and most stable OBD wireless
diagnostics experience in the industry, the company adds.
Launch Pad also comes with a 30-day free trial of Identifix Direct-Hit.
Identifix Direct-Hit features an integral application that automatically
identifies the vehicle through Legacy AAIA Vehicle ID. With the simple
input of symptom or DTC information, Identifix Direct-Hit displays
experience-based confirmed known fixes right on the spot.

The Launch Pad’s capabilities also are expandable, the company says.
Optional modules for a labscope, sensor simulator, battery tester and
J2534 passthru device can be added.
As with all Launch Proline scan tools, coverage for Asian, European and
domestic are included, with a free, one-year subscription. Users can
update via the Internet with one click, and update a single car line in
less than 45 minutes, the company noted.
