    I know some people ask about the iCarsoft system - as I have one I thought I'd do a quick vid of it on my 2002 L322 V8 - sorry for the vid quality, youtube's compression codec has made it hard to read the screen at points in the vid, but I hope it gives some sort of insight into the system



    I may redo the vid another day, but I hope this helps people decide on the iCarsoft device.

    Nice work Ant, although I didn’t actually watch too much of the vid - is it worth the $ or not is my first and only question ?

    As a code reader and fault clearer with extensive live data outputs - for the L322 it is worth the £136....as it also does a vast majority of other Land Rover vehicles too and is not VIN locked or model locked.

    BUT - because it cannot do EAS calibration or change some of the BCU and LCM settings like day running lights, speed sensed door locking, etc etc it is a little disappointing....if it just did EAS calibration on top of its current functions - I'd say this is the budget tool of choice, but because the All Comms reads/clears faults AND does EAS Calibration, BCU settings and LCM functions - it pips it to the post as a budget tool of choice....

    That being said, with All Comms it is limited to just the 2002-2005 L322 and you need a Windows laptop/PC to run it on - it is possible to run it from a windows based tablet so I hear as long as you can run the .net framework. Whereas the iCarsoft is a self contained unit that comes in a carry bag, is powered from the OBD socket or a USB lead if the OBD socket power is out so makes it a handy 'keep in the car' solution.

    Just a pity it doesn't do some basic calibrations or settings.

    That also being said - I would recommend it, as its live data outputs are very good - I managed to check the function of the steering column switches (the column doesn't respond to movement commands - needs investigating) so with the live data output I could see the ECU was indeed received the switch commands, so helped to rule out switch issues, and it must be a motor drive issue...with All Comms not doing live data outputs aside from EAS functions, the iCarsoft has helped me begin to narrow down the potential issue.

    Obviously we are not all lucky enough to have a Faultmate Extreme which is the most uber device for the L322 and any Land Rover product.....and Nanocom doesn't cover the earlier model L322 so that leaves Lynx, Hawkeye, IIDTool, All Comms and iCarsoft....

    Thanks for the video.
    I had and older model iCarsoft CR Plus and it was utter crap to use on my Disco 2. It was only good for reading and clearing codes for all makes and models of cars.
