The ever-present Question for GM Truck and SUV Owners without their having either a GM OEM Bosch Vetronix Tech 2 Scan Tool in their Kit Bag (...or a “GYMKO” General Motors Knock Off version) will be:

Will an inexpensive Blue Tooth Scan Tool do everything that a Tech 2 is capable of ?

Generally… No.

However, there ARE a few Scan Tools that WILL perform an astonishing number of Bi-Directional Tests and a bewildering array of Vehicle and Module Activation and Diagnostics that for all of those features being present… that are really NOT that expensive.

The XTools D7 sports an Android Cell Phone Size Screen (Using a DLC Cable Connection NOT Blue Tooth Adapter) and is available on Amazon for under $500.00. (Note that it does NOT use a typical Oscilloscope Graphing of Voltage Over Time feature for Sensor and Component Live Diagnostics).
