Well, if they steal MY brain, they will be giving it back very quickly, as it is defective!

Stanley Gardner is secret code for one free 3 pound gold bar inside do not return to sender.

Did you not get the PM ?

Oh Well I will just send it out to someone else that wants a free 3 pound gold bar. I guess your wife has too much money.

Along with Yesterdays mail I received my TopDon Artilink 201

When I get time I will provide a Review on this scan tool.

I will say my first opinion of it is that it seems better built and thought out than the scan tool I currently use.

My current scanner was purchased from Amazon it cost roughly the same as the TopDon

Yet my current scanner was purchased in February 24, 2016 with tax and shipping now is out of date and has been already replaced by the manufacturer.

Have you tried to update the firmware? I tried tonight, as I wanted to see how smooth the process went. Unfortunately, there is no update for this (or any) model that I could find. Anyway, I am taking notes and documenting my thoughts and experience with the unit AND the website. After all, the company that produces and stands behind the tool is PART OF THE TOOL. My review will be on another forum as that is where Ella contacted me.

I did not find a update for the scan tool either, I was able to connect it to our 2016 Mini Cooper .

I was able to see there were no codes stored, then I went into the graphing section of the scan tool which is where the screen locked up on me.

I contacted Ella after trying to contact the manufacture for help yet TopDon has no contact information for technical support that I found.

Ella reached out to me and suggested i use the installation kit and update it before I use the scan tool.

I responded back to her and informed her there is no updated software or firmware, so now i am just waiting.

I will say i am not off to a good start LOL

If anyone else tries the tool I suggest staying away from the graphing part of the scan tool for now.

Anyone doing a review for TopDon or any free product make sure to mention you got a free sample in exchange for a review of the product.

here is some information for those interested in not getting fined.:eek :

That is good to know. As the article states, it may be completely unenforceable... but at the tune of $11K, I wouldn't want to test that theory!

EDIT: Although I had mentioned in my review notes that I received this for free, I edited how I said it and brought that to the top of the review.

BTW they should have the update for the tool on their US website now, I was able to download it and update mine and now it works fine.

Did you update by connecting the AL201 to your PC, or download the file, then install?

EDIT: Holy crap, that is slower than my 3.0!

EDIT: Didn't work
