There was a thread about this diagnostics tool back before the big hack of 2014...

According to the blurb, this third-party tool supports K-line communication which is supposedly what the older Berlingos use, and which is why so many of us have fought long, valiant battles trying to install Lexia...

Anyway...
I ordered it on tuesday, and today there was a notice slip in my mailbox when I returned home, and if wasn't for Discovery Channel distracting me(Mike and Ed are restoring a Darrac) I'd have it in my hands tonight...

Expect a short report on whether or not it actually works sometime tomorrow night, and probably a longer one later, after I've had a chance to actually use it.

I for one will be very interested in how you get on with this as I have been thinking about the same device.

The link I saved before:-

That link doesn't work for me. Just says it's either not available or has been moved.

Sorry about that link, it works ok here but not once I have posted it into this site?

If you visit http://www.diagnostic-world.com/
Then on the left hand side click Fault Code Scanners
Then click the Citroen badge
Then click the left hand icon for i970
That works, I don't know why it is such a faff to get there though?

Well...

It's handier than having to drag a laptop out into the garage.
It found a DTC (Permanent error Oxygen sensor) which it let me erase.
(But now I'm not all that certain that I can replicate how it did that... )

It also gives me the manufacturer Id of the ECU and a revision code. Which is pretty useless really.
Trying a OBD scan doesn't fin any units, it can't even find my ECU or airbag system.

Of course, it may be that there's a problem with the wiring in my car...
Tried to go on the icarsoft website to check for updates...
Clicking on any links leads to a Chinese-language page.
To find the updates I had to google 'icarsoft i970 update' to find the page.
And no there aren't any updates for it, yet.

Language-wise, there's currently two choices on this unit, German(I don't read German so can't comment on that choice), or awkward English...

So far, I've seen nothing that would make me recommen it for anyone with a Pre-BSI model.

I can find no other review of this device anywhere on the Web, and after reading yours I think I will pass on it for a while.
Thank you for the information.
