MARCH 2019 UPDATE

  • NEW MECH5 XLINK iOS / Android App – New  Version - 3.5.0

In this release we have focused on usability:

  • You can now read Fault Codes and take Snapshots directly from the App, in what we call “Vehicle Health Check”. This gives you an improved usability experience, especially when working on smaller devices.

We will continue to add more functionality to the App in the next releases such as ECU filtering, Live Data reading and Profile Editing.

The classic way of connecting to MECH5 for full vehicle diagnostics is still there, but is now called "Link Vehicle to MECH5"
