AutoEninguity Reviewed In Depth
The heart of the Auto Enginuity product line starts with their ScanTool. The ScanTool, shown in the picture below, is an OBDII adapter that plugs into the diagnostic connector on your automobiles. The USB cable then goes to your laptop. The ScanTool has recently been renamed “ProLine VCI”, with VCI standing for Vehicle Connection Interface.
The way AutoEnginuity works is that you first need to purchase the adapter, and then you can purchase “enhanced” coverages for any auto manufacturer they offer, and there is a lot of them. Currently they offer enhanced coverages for over 40 carmakers, including:
- Land Rover
- GM of Europe (Isuzu/Holden)
This list is obviously not 40 companies, but Ford does include all the other brands in their family such as Lincoln, Mercury, Saleen, etc… The addons for BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Nissan also include the extra cables needed for those manufacturers.
AutoEnginuity Requirements & Packaging
AutoEnginuity is a PC-based application, so Apple fans are out of luck. This is also not an item that you can use with a mobile devices such as Android, iPhone, iPad, or any tablets. Requirements are very minor. Your PC needs an open USB port, 200 MB of free space, a CD-drive to install it, and at least 1 GB of RAM. Any computer made in the last 10 years can handle this software, as it works on all Windows operating systems since Windows XP through Windows 10.
The packaging is very simple. Every adapter, whether you purchase an enhanced coverage or not, comes in the same box. Inside the box you will find the ProLine VCI adapter, USB cable, user guide, quick installation guide, and AutoEnginuity software.
