ScanXL™ is the most advanced diagnostic software package that works with scan tools. Almost every part of the software is customizable and configurable: from the color, scale, and line width of the graphs, to the look of the gauges, to the built-in scripting support. Ford, Mazda, and GM add-ons (sold separately) provide access to thousands of enhanced parameters not available through generic OBD.

It's OK.Review by Matt
I agree with previous review. Stick with the free OBDwiz unless you're buying add-ons. Not worth the extra money.
The biggest disappointment; absolutely NO Chrysler/Dodge support. If you only own Chryslers, don't bother with this software at all. Just use the free version.

very stripped down versionReview by repare
I was happy the my OBDII Scan unit finally connected. However, the idea of getting this software was to record freeze errors and DTCs. The software does not do this as a standalone program. I discovered I must purchase a plug in database of Ford DTC codes to pinpoint the exact unit of MIL indicators. Very disappointed. One nice feature missing, is diagnostics of ECU failure itself.

Helpful tool...for the SAE valuesReview by Robert
The ScanXL is an impressive tool for the money. I currently have Palmer Engineering looking at the values that I am getting with my Mazda add on. The current values are waaay off for the drive train/engine PID's. I will let you know what they find. (Posted on 10/24/2012)
Does a good job when purchased enhancedReview by Vio
A superior diagnostics soft. Compared to ScanMaster (which is garbage) that I tried using before this one works flawlessly and has a nice user friendly interface. Now here is the drawback. If you buy the Scan XL as a stand alone program you might as well stick to your free OBDwiz.. Problem: it's too basic and limited , in that very few IPDs are displayed. Connected it to my Volvo but couldn't see much useful info, Equal to OBDwiz capabilities.
But... when I connected to my Saturn with the enhanced GM add-on I was ecstatic. I could see in detail what went on inside the transmission. Even the gear ratio. I was in awe. Also helped me to understand why the airbag light was on. Saved me $100 on airbag diagnostic. As for the ABS feature that was a letdown. Apparently only 2007 and newer GM vehicles have the ABS feature written for them. Disappointing as mine was 2005. Overall I am satisfied with the program. Useful to have when you know how to read the data and the graphs.
