- V-checker A301 is a multi-function virtual dashboard / trip computer which can help the car user to access and check various trouble codes and sensor information and some other vehicle statuses.
- The device can be configured to alert when several thresholds or sensor values are abnormal
- It also has a function to clear trouble codes
- The device’s user interface can be set up to user’s preferences so that you can select the desired vehicle information displayed.
- On some cars although the interface is compatible it will be nearly impossible to connect due to some software bugs
- This device does not have great support from the producer, although the firmware can be updated there is no newer version than the one on the device
- To update the device you need a special cable which is not included.
- For thous who bought this item and doesn't work on their car can try the following trick: Find a friend with a similar car (year, make, engine) and try to connect to their car. The interface automatically checks the compatibility and if it's successful it will save the connection. Then without resetting the device try to using on your car. In my case it work in this manner. On my car it couldn't connect first time, but with the settings made from another car it worked perfectly.
The bottom line is that this device is a pretty comprehensive piece of hardware that is very useful to have in you car. The only problems are lack of support and not being 100% compatible with all interfaces although specified otherwise.
