G Scan 2 Basic Review and Video Guide
G-Scan 2 User Review
Gscan 2 vs. Carman vs. Launch
GScan2 is very simple to use, and read. The new screen is very effective, even in the sunlight. Updating is simple also, and G.I.T. offer three major updates every year.
This new tool now offers the option of a fast 4 channel oscilloscope and professional multi-meter that simply snaps onto the back!

What a lot of people do not realize is how good this tool is on American ranges too. See these videos:

Part 2: G Scan 2 Review
I tested some of vehicle makers via G-scan 2.
Toyota, Nisan, Mitsubishi, Mazda, Isuzu, Fuso, Hino, UD diesel functions are OK.
Not tested EU vehicles. BMW and VAG Group. But VAG group will support that functions if you know that correct adaptation channel number.
Tested model was, Hiace, Hilux, Land cruiser, Navara, X-trail, Patrol, Triton, Mazda3,6, BT-50, D-MAX, Rodeo, N, F, C Series trucks, Canter, Fighter, Hino300, 500, PK, MK…
2.Depends on Hyundai and Kia, G-scan2 will be best solution in now and future. Because they are OEM maker for that maker. No scan tool can’t follow their develop speed and value.
I have both scanner. I have Carmanscan many years ago and after 2008 they have very bad software and I buy G-Scan. I was not too much impress with G-Scan, only Kia and Hyundai is OK but all other models is Poor. I expect more for Asia car but I don’t get, I was finish job with X-431 Launch. When Carmanscan start this year with very good software, My scanner was again born and Now Best scanner for Asia cars is CARMAN but as I say only with last software 1240-1270-1271
Software before is poor same.
I honestly don’t think brands like CARMAN and LAUNCH will allow G-SCAN to decimate it’s products, if G-SCAN claim they are the best, then i believe LAUNCH X431 and CARMAN will come up to scratch. i have looked at LAUNCH software on some ASIAN vehicles recently, like toyota, nissan , mitsubishi….., i can see improvments taking place in some areas, especially toyota. And LAUNCH price drops in recent times, CARMAN continues to be a good too.
Launch is same good for Asia, Europe cars but not like Carman for Kia and Hyundai. Different is small but my list will be Carman Lite, Launch X431, G-Scan
Choice is your.
I used almost every scan tool for my job.
Depends on Hyundai and Kia, G-scan 2 will be best solution in now and future. Because they are OEM maker for that maker. No scan tool can’t follow their develop speed and value.
I agree some of EU brands is poor but Asian brand is much better than other scan tool. I saw much more special function in this scan tool for Asian makers.
And honestly, G-scan is very powerful on Asian trucks. Just use latest version(Oct. 2012) and test on Euro5 Isuzu, Hino, Fuso. Except OEM tool, no other scan tool can’t make a job for this present model. And about Hyundai trucks? They are OEM, no need to discuss.
I test 3 units, G-Scan Carman Lite and X431 Diagun.
For Asia cars Carman Lite is No1 (only with New version 1270 and higher), Launch X-431 and after that G-Scan. I was surprised because I present this unit on exhibition and after this result I STOP with presentation.
G-Scan is only good for Kia and Hyundai but not for other models. G-Scan work good but not like Carman, as I say please check and then write.
I resell both and have tested both , bottom line you will need both , ask me why , CarmanScan use to be Kia & Hyundai OEM dealer tool from 1996 till 2006 after that it’s G-Scan but not so many people noticed Carmanscan becoming poor in coverage with Kia & Hyundai untill early 2009 when we started to see many new models from Kia & Hyundai , right now many technicians and mechanics still deal with 2006 down still need CarmanScan that is when talking Kia & Hyundai after 2009 +- will need G-Scan , but do not be fooled on other Japanese and Korean CarmanScan is still needed even on latest models . CarmanScan is still many technicians best tool + it’s robust , i normally advise old customers of CarmanScan once they visit to buy G-Scan to keep their CarmanScan the funny thing they never listen and sell their used CarmanScan Lite only to visit again to buy another one after they’ve discovered reality the hard way.
The Gscan2 is more frequent with updates compared to the Carman Brand and the Gsan the tool I use the most every day. Carman updates a few and far between. go for Gscan . but if you want a scope buy the Gscan 2 with no scope option and buy a Pico, Its better value for money.
To ad to the above comment about Kia & Hyundai, They are not ex but current software programmers and the Kia & Hyundai is generally the next years models as the software is the real deal.
