C110+ Scanner Software

Post by dazthephot »

Hi all,

i've just bought one of these scanners, went to download the software but it's not on the supplied CD - just the manual. All of the online resources take you to a blacklisted site so I can't get the software from anywhere. Does anyone have a resource link for the software?

Thanks

Well in all honesty I’m not sure Robert. I believe it’s for software updates but if I don’t need it then I won’t bother. It only came today so I haven’t tried it yet. I only really bought it to see if it’s more functional than my peake research tool plus I have an E91 that it’s supposed to work on too. We shall see.

You’ll be fine as is unless it’s a variant I’ve not come across before.

I bought a C110 that was a fake, no updates

Bought another for a little more money and that can be updated.

Well that’s interesting. I still haven’t plugged it in yet but I re-read the ad on eBay and it said in red letters this can’t be updated via the internet.
The whole thing is a typical Chinese product but if it works it’s ok I’ll be happy.

Same as my first one, fake. I returned it claiming it was fake and didn’t work on all functions and got a refund.

Well I’ve just plugged it in under the bonnet using my round plug adapter. It comes on and I can go though the menus. I used the read codes function and it reported no errors. The software in it says v7.5 dated October 2018. I didn’t try it from inside the car.
I would have thought it would reset service indicators but I guess not. Is there a specific thing that could check to see if it is a fake or not?

I went through all the functions and quite a few didn’t work.

Hmm ok thanks. I have a free weekend and I’ve kept the box so I’ll do some more checking. If I switch it to the under dashboard socket will this legible me a different area to look at?

The main port is under the bonnet, the interior port has limited function.

Ok thanks. I’m in the middle of refurbishing the wing mirror bases so I’ll play with it later.
