Launch Tech Australia has recently brought the X-431 HD III intelligent VCI (vehicle communication interface) to the local market, designed for use with a range of vehicles – from cars, to medium-duty and heavy-duty trucks – with the add-on module working in conjunction with other diagnostic scan tools to enable a range of more powerful functions.
