  • pros & cons

Look and Feel

This scanner has a sleek, magnet design that’s very lightweight with a wide range of vehicle support. This design makes the BD310 different from many other scanners. There’s a mount for the vent that holds it with a magnet. There’s also a back-lit display that’s bright in colors making visibility quite easy. This tool connects to the dash of your car for ease of viewing when driving your vehicle. 


Connectivity is quite easy for all you’ll need to do is plug in the scanner and smoothly run several different tests using Bluetooth. This process is fast, responsive and stable compared to most scanners out on the market. This enables a happier, better user experience for us all. This scanner works in a wired mode as well using a nice long cord. This is useful and much needed for the certain kinds of drivers who consistently camp and travel far out where service stations are no longer available.


The BD310 scanner has the ability to test acceleration, trip management, battery voltage and brake performance. Once the engine is on, the vehicle is driven in certain conditions and the engine is turned back off, a trip then occurs. If there’s any fault, the Malfunctioning Indicator Light (MIL), or the check engine light, will turn on. That is considered to be the trip management test. This scanner can read and clear DTC’s from the engine, as well as displaying live data, VIN and I/M readiness. This could be useful when clearing the error code or turning off the MIL on Bluetooth status. The scanner gives you a lifetime of free updates using a Windows PC and supports 8 different languages.
