Long-time lurker, first time posting!
I was wondering about the difference in hardware quality, software reliability and range of features between the Foxwell readers (NT510 & NT630) and the Chinese clones of the HIM.
Foxwell appear to be a reputable company, so I gather that the units themselves are manafactured to a high standard. But what is their car-specific software like? I'm assuming that their 'Honda' software is created by Foxwell rather than Honda - does it work well? Also, does it provide all of the functionality that someone who wants to service their own car would require?
Finally, the quality of the Chinese HIM clones is probably not too good, but they do use the proprietary Honda HDS software, which is a real bonus. But does using one of these HIM clones pose any risks to the ECM?
Sorry for all of the questions in my first post, but I'd really like to find out as much info as possible before I decide which route to go down!
