At the time I shot the video I was not aware that it was also capable of
reading SRS codes.
Honestly, I found this tool difficult to set up. I will admit that this may
be due to the interface with my phone however. Once I got it up and running
it seemed to work fine however. This tool can be a simple code reader, or
it can be on par with some of the more high end scanners due to it's ABS,
SRS capabilities, and the 'Code Connect' feature. Also with 'Code Connect'
it can provide additional diagnostic information that is not found in many
other scan tools. At least for the code I checked it seemed the information
was minimal, but it was accurate. That said, this seems like it would be a
nice scanner for the DIY and possibly for side work if you're a
professional technician. It really depends on how much you want to spend on
the in app purchases to unlock the tools full capabilities.
Here's some other useful links for you.
