TOAD (Total OBD and ECU Auto Diagnostics) is the leading ODB reading software membership product that lets you scan and detect problems in a car. This comprehensive system also tells users what action they should take if there is an issue with a car. This make TOAD an extremely powerful and useful tool for DIY enthusiasts and experts in the motoring trade. These are the main reasons TOAD is so popular and why it’s used by more experts and those who have less knowledge about cars.
TOAD Saves you Money
TOAD is an affordable car diagnostics package which most car owners can afford. Your car needs to be maintained properly, so that small problems don’t escalate into more serious, expensive issues that have to be dealt with by your garage.
Each time you visit your garage or mechanic it costs money, so you want to avoid this happening as much as possible. Regularly checking your car with TOAD reduces the possibility of any emissions problems or engine problems developing into more serious problems. If you’re familiar with the workings of your car, you can carry out much of the maintenance suggested by TOAD yourself.
Car owners are not the only ones who can save money with the TOAD system. It costs much less than many of the existing car diagnostics systems currently used in the motor industry by garages, repair shops and mechanics. The application was originally designed for those in the motor industry and reduces the outlay required to purchase this type of software product.
TOAD Gives You More Control and Independence
Up until now OBD, OBD2 readers and scanners and ECU remapping software systems cost thousands of dollars. This meant most people could not afford this type of car product. They were forced to visit their garage every time an issue arose with their car. This increased the likelihood of being overcharged for parts and labor by disreputable garages and mechanics.
Not all garages do this. However, there are plenty of instances where motorists have been taken advantage of by dishonest garages and mechanics who realized their customers had little or no knowledge about cars. Many car owners simply want to get their car back on the road as quickly as possible. This often leads to them paying way more than they should for these services.
TOAD frees you from this situation. The system works on almost every type of car. It carries out its diagnostics. If a fault or potential problem is identified, the user is notified about this. Some problems are minor while other may be more serious. Either way, the car owner has a clearer picture about what is wrong with their car if a problem is detected.
Armed with this knowledge you can fix the problem if you have the skills and knowledge. If you don’t have the skills required, you can confidently go to your garage or mechanic and tell them what problem exists. This greatly reduces the likelihood of a garage overcharging for their services because you will have a better idea about what’s involved in fixing your car and the correct cost for this work.
The TOAD application also gives you access to OBD codes and information that was once only available from car manufacturers. This reduces your dependence on the manufacturers and repair shops when you’re trying to identify problems or carrying out remapping activities.
Your Car Becomes More Efficient and Lasts Longer
Unfortunately, many car owners don’t take care of their cars properly. Failure to identify problems early and not maintaining your car on a regular basis has the potential to reduce the useful lifespan of a vehicle. However, TOAD helps you avoid this by detecting problems early. The more often you check your car, the less likely it is for a serious problem to occur with your car.
TOAD is Easy to Use
TOAD is a membership package that includes downloadable software and manuals. Users simply download the software to their computer or laptop. Once this has been done, TOAD’s easy-to-use interface makes it relatively simple to find faults and display any errors it finds with emissions or your car’s engine.
TOAD is a More Comprehensive System than Other Scanners and Readers
Like any industry, the motor trade produces some high quality products. It also produces many cheap, inferior products that don’t do what they promise to do. In recent years, a large number of poorly designed ODB2 readers have been imported into the market which fail to deliver what they promise.
However, TOAD is an exception. It’s used and trusted by millions of people including mechanics, car companies and others involved in the motor industry. The system is designed and updated by professionals who understand what this type of product needs to be able to accomplish.
Similar products include some of the features available in TOAD. Certain products are able to carry out OBD and OBD2 reader and scanner functions. Others are able to carry out ECU remapping functions. However, TOAD is able to do both, because it’s a two-in-one system that also includes thousands of pages of manuals for almost every car imaginable, making it a much more comprehensive solution for car owners and mechanics.
TOAD is a world class car diagnostics system. It’s a product most people and car-related businesses can afford. The team behind TOAD have created a car diagnostics product that’s currently used by millions of satisfied customers around the world.
