iCarsoft Por II

Recommended Posts

Firstly, I hope everyone had a great new year!

Secondly, has anyone on the forum come across or used one of these diagnostic tools? iCarsoft POR II?

Here's one on eBay:
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/SERVICE-RESET-TOOL-iCarsoft-POR-II-2-PORSCHE-OBD2-II-Fault-Code-Reader-ABS-OIL-/112167549164?hash=item1a1db4f8ec:g:wz4AAOSw8w1YAg5o

I'm looking to reset my "service now" warning as I've done an oil change etc and no longer need the reminder every time I put the key in the ignition.

I've already looked into the Durometric but as it costs a fair bit more than the Carsoft version, thought the Carsoft might be a viable option.
 

Thoughts?

Cheers

I'm keen to hear about people's experiences too.  Only Mike D'Silva seems to be a regular user and poster on this topic.

Bugger, I didn't see that one on eBay Russ.

I know the Duratech has a lot more features but checking codes and resetting service warnings is all I really need.
I found quite a few reviews that say the device does what it claims to do so bit the bullet and ordered one.

I'll keep you posted as to how it goes.

I've got one, the same brand but smaller.  Not sure of the differences.

It does the basics; user friendly and does do resets.  It picked up a failed coil pack and its location as well as clearing the resultant CEL.  Happy with it.  Australian prices are brutal though - much cheaper in UK...

I've got one that I got off eBay, think mine came from Singapore. I bought it to reset the service light on my cayenne after doing my own service. Worked great but haven't had the need to use it for anything else yet. I think the i960 can't do resets on service light that's why I went for the por ll. hope this helps!

Think it was this one I bought! http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/iCarsoft-PORSCHE-POR-II-i960-OBD2-Fault-Code-Reader-ECU-ABS-OIL-SERVICE-RESET-/351898668772?hash=item51eecb8ee4:g:ArsAAOSwZ1lWdlgj

Has anyone actually bought an iCarsoft Por-II? Can you please tell me if it can read over-rev data (ignitions range in Durametric terms)?

I'm struggling to justify the initial outlay for a Durametric Pro. I know the enthusiast version would be OK for now (I only have two Porsches). I don't really need the advanced coding features of the Pro and the price for the Enthusiast is a little more palatable, but I don't want to be restricted to only three VIN's.

The iCarsoft Por II appears to have most of the features that I want, but I can't find definitively whether it can read the over-rev data. That feature is something I would really like to have.
