A bit more info, for anyone sitting on the fence Wink

You can get details of coverage here: http://www.gap-diagnostic.com/products/iidtool.html

For the BT model, the basic functions (fault codes, live data, component control and service routines) are unlocked and available for all covered vehicles. Enhanced functions (CCF editing and ECU flashing, and calibrations like the suspension, transfer box and SAS) are VIN locked. You can buy additional licences (for any covered model) for £60.

The device works best via bluetooth using an app (free - Android and Apple), allowing graphing of live values etc., but can also function on it's own using the instrument cluster to write on like the IID "classic". (NB: Not all Android devices are compatible, so best to check first.)

Having worked my way through various diagnostic tools over the years (IDS/SDD, Autologic, Faultmate, Haweye, Nanocom etc), the IID Tool beats them all hands down, for ease of use, accessibility, info provided, and above all else, price...

The IID Bluetooth unit is exactly the same as the IIDPro which I use on a daily basis, but is VIN-locked, as explained in the above. The only difference is the Pro version is VIN-Free, and the price.

The IID will perform functions that even JLR's own SDD diagnostic system cannot do, such as Sat Nav on the Move (allows you to enter destination while driving)
It allows FULL Car Configuration File (CCF) editing and allows you to unlock "hidden" features within the car
It allows full software updates (not all models are currently covered, but they are in the pipeline), some of which as required for CCF editing and features to work, such as 3 Flash Indicators.
It allows EAS calibration, either individual corners, front only, rear only, or all 4 corners.

And if it all goes wrong with a calibration, or CCF editing, there is a Restore function, to put it back to standard Thumbs Up

There has been much thought and care put into each, and every process the IID Tool can perform.
They even go as far as forcing failed software updates, and have recovery processes already in place. Most of which goes on in the background automatically, so the end user doesn't have to do anything

I have taken some screenshots with my own Disco 3. There will be differences between the models, and some features available on some that are not there on others.

It offers Live Values, both in digital, and graph form
The graphs are invaluable for pinpointing intermittent faults, as you can see the specific rise/fall in readings, instead of the digital values





It offers "Safe" CCF Editing

It also offers "Advanced" editing. For 99% of owners, this option will go unused, but it can be made available for anything you want to retro-fit, or enable. This is where the CCF Restore function is invaluable Bow down

ECU Flash screen. All of these Firmware options are free to use. There is a small charge for Firmware not listed in this menu, and is supplied direct from GAP.



The ECU Info tab allows you to see modules which are fitted to the car and what firmware is currently installed. Invaluable if you are having module communication issues

The Save/Restore tab allows you to save your specified height requirements, and change to them in a matter of seconds, as well as the CCF Restore, just in case Wink




Considering a main dealer will generally charge a minimum of £100 for a diagnostic plug in, the IIDTool offers excellent value for money, and while the saving is not huge, its better than nothing Thumbs Up

much cheaper especially for those who likes to tinker with the car and not to get stranded with some stupid fault which can be cleared or diagnosed on the road side ....

The USB interface only replicates the integrated one, so it doesn't allow live value graphing etc. which does have a great impact on the usefulness and convenience of the device. It's primarily intended to allow those without CC switches to retro-fit them in order to then use them to controll the IID. Wink

I didn't have anything suitable either, and though I'm not an Apple fan, I decided to get an Ipad Mini for the purpose. Thumbs Up

Wow, thanks guys for all the answers and especially Mike for the long descriptive post / Review!!

Just a few little corrections since Mike does have a Pro and not a BT:

-For safety reasons, access to the full CCF list is available upon request only. However, the tested settings are available to all and these cover 99 % of all requirements.
-Re-flash wise, the Pro is capable of housing all supported files while the BT does require either updating the tool to a special firmware for the Nav On Move or using the PC based interface for updating the Bluetooth in any other languages then UK English.

Else, feel free to ask any questions and I will answer ASAP.

Cheers Thumbs Up

They can only get cut off once. Then you are free, free, free to spend, spend, spend!

Anyone thinking this is too techie/geeky/complicated don't worry, if I can weild the power of the little magic box anyone can. I prob use a couple of % of what it can do but wouldn't want to be without it. IMHO it's the only system I've seen that can safely and easily be run by non techies like me, everything else out there terrified me. It certainly gets you a lot more involved with the car, though SWMBO would use the word paranoid!! Whistle

Hi there, visiting from a forum for superior Land Rovers Rolling with laughter

If unlocking for another vehicle is £60, how much is the "Pro" version?

Sign me up for a BT one, and if there isn't a massive price difference (and it's even possible) I might be interested in the Pro one.
