just wondering which forscan tool for a 2006 lexus is350

Post by Shadowmeph »

a few months back I bought a forscan tool for my 04 ford ranger 4x4 and not more then 1 week after I bought it and started learning how to use it and signed up for the free usage I was in an accident that totaled my truck so now I have an 06 lexus is350 and I highly doubt that this tool will work on it so I am wondering which will work on the lexus and also now I will probably have to pay for the usage license since its a totally different car hehe

What is FORScan?
FORScan is a software scanner for Ford, Mazda, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles, designed to work over ELM327 and J2534 Pass-Thru compatible adapters.

TechStream for Toyota/Lexus is a very good tool.
A J2534 device will connect to the Toyota/Lexus combinations.

If you have an OBD II device, there are plenty of Android applications that will work.
The better the OBD device, the better the application with Android or a Laptop.

OBDlink MX+ has decent Toyota Coverage (I have an 11 GS350, pretty much the same car as you).
It is supposed to even read TPMS but I have a case with their support.

If not get a $20 Techstream clone, they work very well.
