The detail description of GS-911

The latest model BMWs like the K1600 and R1200GSW moved to the faster CAN-Diag protocol which required a new hardware design to support the models so the GS-911 WiFi with K-Line and CAN-Diag interfaces was developed. Support for these new models is being progressively rolled out.

The new model replaces the blutooth interface with a WiFi interface which better suits the modern smart phones and tablets we all use in the modern world. The adoption of the WiFi interface also opens up the possibility of cloud services to owners with more functionality out on the road and more timely updates to the software for new models as they are released.

The gs-911 diagnostic tool WiFi also supports the Husqvarna Nuda and Terra models released by Husqvarna while it was under BMW ownership.

While the GS911 was originally designed as a diagnostic tool the advent of coding and customisation in the newer BMW models has meant the GS911 has had to evolve into a tool which supports coding and customisation. This support is enhanced in the new GS911 WiFi.

A new feature which the WiFi version also introduces is the ability to log real time data from ECU sensors to internal storage for extended periods enabling owners to track down intermittent faults. Real time logging is able to be set at the start of a journey and continue throughout the day regardless of how many fuel or coffee stops a rider may take. In fact it could be set up to record for up to a year.

Development of the diagnostic tools GS911 has not only been done in the lab in South Africa, Hexcode have an active program involving owners who test firmware and software in the field and put forward ideas or features which are needed. Hexcode have been responsive to riders needs which is why the product has been so successful.

Lisa and Simon of 2RideTheWorld are one couple who have been involved with the development from the beginning and regard it as important as your keys in the 526,000 kms they have covered in their 11-year travels.

How to install the mobile software?

A short generic description of the options available for installing the mobile software on your mobile device.

From the Downloads page, you should download the gs 911 usb interface downloader.  This is a Windows application and should be run on any Windows PC/Laptop.  See the F.A.Q.: “What does the GS-911downloader do?”

Once the Browser has opened the page that shows all the download links, browse down to all the mobile links and select the type of software that is appropriate for your gs 911 usb adapter… i.e. the Android app for an Android device and the Blackberry app for a Blackberry device, etc. You should be seeing something similar to the following (versions and dates might change):
You basically have 3 options, highlighted as “1”, “2” and “3” on the screenshot above. My preference is definitely Option 1. Here is a brief description of the options:

Option 1: Email download link to phone

When you click on this link, it will open the default email client on your PC with the link already populated in the body of the email… you simply add the email address that you want to send it to. Make sure this is an email that you can access on your mobile device… If you don’t have one (highly unlikely), you can register on for free.

Once you open the email on your mobile device, simply click on the link and this will install the software. You might also have to enable ‘install from unknown sources’ in your phone settings.

Option 2: Download the install package and manually install it on your mobile device

As the heading suggests, you download the install package (typically: right-click, save-as…). This will now be somewhere on your PC… and it is not our responsibility to teach you how to install a package on YOUR mobile device ;-)  Manual installation procedures differ from device to device, manufacturer to manufacturer and are even different (or prohibited) for various Operators (AT&T etc.)… if you need help on the manual install… Google is your friend!

Option 3: Copy the URL of the complete download page and send it to your phone/mobile device

Simply copy the complete URL (3) of the download page and text message/sms or email or whatever means you choose, to your mobile device.  When you open this link in the browser of your mobile device, you will see the above screenshot and you can then simply click on the package that is right for your Mobile device…

Launch iCarScan VCI workable car models what I tested well and bad:
I bought Launch iCarScan is for because my son’s2000 Accord had a ABS problem. The seller told me that tis ICarScan is fully compatible with this Honda but unfortunately it’s not. It can’t communicate with ABS ECU. Only motor and SRS are compatible. However it works fine with my BMW E60 and E66. You can do almost everything with these cars…

One good thing is that you don’t need to download all 5 brands while starting to use this software. But still the support is bit lame.After all it feels that this is really worth of money.I also test this with Car Diagnostic Tools since they couldn’t reset Webasto heater in “his” indy shop, I downloaded VW few days ago and tested it with 2007 Transporter. It worked fine with my phone, however it did not recognize the VIN of the car and i had to feed it manually. after that all Ecu’s were recognized and I was able to unlock Aux Heater which were locked by some errors. Also some errors found ant those could be diagnosed as well reset. Very good thing with VW is that there are quite good explanations about the errors as well how to get rid of these.

Autel Maxisys Elite,Autel Maxisys Pro,and Mini Version which is best

The Autel Pro diagnostic tool rapidly performs every job from comprehensive vehicle diagnostics & analysis to advanced ECU programming. it is new Autel Maxisys series have four autel maxisys diagnostic tools:Autel maxisys elite,autel MS908P,Autel MS908,Mini Autel Maxisys.How to choose the suitable one?

The display device automatically searches for available updates for all of the Maxisys components when it is connected to the internet. Any Updates that are found can be downloaded and installed on the Autel Pro scanner. This section describes installing an update to the Autel MaxiSys Pro Diagnostic System firmware. A notification message displays if an update is available when the Notifications function is enabled in the Settings applications.

Launch iCarScan VCI Bluetooth Scanner, the update version of iDiag, is for Android only no iOS version available. iCarScan features in 5 Brand Vehicle Software for Free.

The difference between Launch idiag and iCarScan:
Someone says software is basically same. Launch ICarScan comes with 5 models free @ $66 each other than that I think maybe the same tool, you do not have to choose models when you register, you can add them as you find you need them. And you don’t have to download the 5 free software during the first time setup, I have downloaded only 2 of those 5 and will download the rest three one by one at once there is a need for new brand. I don’t know if the update support of the later installed software will be year but this does not really matter. However I believe that I need to download all brands before one year from first subscription.
