Auto Enginuity

Is auto enginuity transferable from one person to another? I'm looking at buying a used one, does anybody see any problems with that?

i believe so, its just a program... i will let u know that a lot of guys have connection problems with OBS trucks. in a SD truck they are great and connect every time.

just food for thought, look for a snap on MT2500 usually around 250 bucks

Yes it's just a piece of hardware and openly available software

you can upgrade and have a years updates by paying a fee and it will also register to you ,, but it's not necessary to have it in your name unles you want updates ,, the new versions require a dongle and maybe a new connector

there is a trick on the OBS trucks to get it to recognize ,, I think you don't select auto connect IIRC

it's a choice to select before u go to connect

I don't have an OBS but I see friends and posters using it all the time on them
and that was a comment I remember

works great on mine but I have never used the snap on

if u buy a used A/E make sure it has the enhanced ford activated for the version u buy

It has to do with the OBS w/ 7.3's not being OBD-II compliant. Once you choose the correct way to get in it connects right away. I had that issue when I got it, it tells how to connect right in the manual. Once I read it right it connected flawlessly. I like the idea of AE just because it isn't obsolete, unlike the Snap-On scanner, to each their own though.

I can hook it up this week and give the steps to get it to connect. I have only used it once and that was a couple months ago and I can't remember the exact steps.
