Default Forscan Diagnostic Software?

Anyone on here use it on their trucks before? Seems to be a very popular diagnostic program for the F-150/Mustang crowd with a few powerstroke guys here and there.

Similar to AE and IDS, and can turn off certain features in modules program keys etc. This is a Ford specific program.

Best of all it's free, only requirements are a windows PC and a OBDII adapter, this seems to be the most popular.

They even have a phone app similar to torque pro.

Just thought I post up to see if anyone here used it before.

Going to download it soon and see how it compares to AE.

I used it on my 07 expedition. It can monitor quite a bit of stuff. I think there is even a better version if you buy it. It's wireless and free, what more could you ask for. I think it can even run diagnostic system checks for all of the vehicle.

I have it. Depends what you want to do. I have both versions. I use a USB with a laptop. I use the Bluetooth on my phone. Laptop is better IMO. I don't have much experience with it because this truck never brakes down. Knock on wood. Lol

It worked to change my tpms pressure and you can change tire size, fuel tank and quite a bit of stuff.

Can you program extra keys? Can you enable remote start to a no equipped remote start truck?

Will it read BCM codes? I know a good number of scanners wont read ABS codes or Airbag codes on our trucks.
