I purchased the NT530 BMW and have 2 question.
1. How many different makes can this model support simultaneously if i buy the vehicle support.
2. What are the differences between the NT510 and the NT520 and NT530
1. Generally, there is no limit on how many you obtain the software. However, due to the SD card limited capacity, only up to 5 vehicle
software can be downloaded in one SD card at a time. If you need to install others, need to uninstall one of them and download the one you need when you need.
2. There are no big difference between them on functions, the NT530 is the newest updated version to replace the NT510, NT520. It updates the firmware and adds newer car models which NT520 and NT510 can not do. Like Mitsubishi, Nissan, Renault.
Also, it can do BMW F series vehicles, while NT510 and NT520 can not.
Without the special vehicle program, how does the 530 differ from the 650?
The NT530 without loading specific software only have OBDii engine code reading function.
The NT650 only able to do special functions. It can not do full system diagnostic.
While the NT530 comes with one vehicle software for free, and could do all functions, but just for one specific vehicle make. You can add extra at 60USD each.
I have a 2006 bmw 325 and 2014 Audi Q5. I see you have a two software bundle for the 530… i have a few questions:
1. i'm a mac user so does the software work for mac to load on the scanner?
2. which scanner is best for me for both bmw and Cadillac?
3. do you have free shipping to Canada and how long approximately to get to me in Canada?
Here are answers to your questions:
1. The Foxassist installer can not work on MAC, only compatible with Windows systems. You may need to borrow one Windows pc from your friend.
2. The NT530 would be the best choice for BMW. And you can add the VW software as second one for your 2014 Audi Q5
3. We offer DHL free shipping to Canada and the extimated time is 3-6 working days.
Best scanner for a 2001 BMW 325i (e46), that provides a complete reading of engine, transmission, abs, etc. Secondary can the scanner software be upgrade for usage on a 2005 Honda Ridgeline. The scanner will be for DIY not shop.
hello, you can buy one more software on http://www.obdiitool.co.uk/wholesale/software-authorization-for-nt510-nt520.html
Will it register a new battery on a 2009 BMW E93?
Yes it will do.
Foxwell NT530 Scanner Reviews:
This NT520 is way beyond my expectations, It out performs the big dollar scanners.
Totally happy with this purchase. You cant go wrong with this one!
I purchased the nt530 with the Land Rover / Jaguar program after extensive research. At first I was skeptical about its abilities but after the download and update I am very pleased with its performance. Also I can download all my other vehicles to it. Best tool investment I've made in a while. Highly recommended. Thank you very much Foxwell.

The NT530 I scored off from obdiitool.co.uk
had good feedback, so I went with it. Again, no problems registering the unit. Far more comprehensive. Ability to test specific modules, and perform calibration tests, which is what I got it for in the first place (replacing blend door actuator). Has a setting for ABS bleed, can dead cycle injectors, etc etc. The NT530 arrived with all current updates installed on an 16Gb micro SD card. All updates, for at least one make, will easily fit on the 16Gb micro SD with room to record data while scanning. The unit includes a micro SD card reader, which is how it communicates with the PC suite. Card goes in the reader, which occupies a USB slot, and that is how updates are performed. the USB cable that comes with the unit is only for printing functions apparently.
Lifetime updates on the Foxwell is a HUGE bonus. Adding other makes is $60 as someone else stated above. Which is pretty reasonable if you're primarily working on your own vehicles, or a handful of friend/family rides.
I have the nt530. It has regular code read/clear, limited coding, actuation testing, live data etc.
You can install software for up to 5 brands on it. I just have the MB stuff on it. So far I've used it to adjust the idle speed, 87 octane capability, inflate/deflate air suspension, shut off the torque converter for diagnostic, bleed SBC.
I purchased a new Foxwell NT530 that came with the MB/Sprinter/Smart package for $189 shipped. Get it, you can add different makes for $60 more. I have since bought 2 more makes to support my other vehicles. Free upgrades and is much cheaper than buying more expensive make specific readers. It not only reads codes but lets you see live data, perform actuations and allow turning modules on/off to test their functionality. And it keeps the paid mechanics honest. If/when I ever need a STAR access, a local has one.
I have Mercedes w210, w211, w203. The foxwell more than covers my needs. More importantly, It fits in my glovebox.
Foxwell nt530 can do 90% of what SDS can do. Rear/erase codes from all modules, bi directional tests, actuate components like fan, smog pump, windows lights, airmatic, SBC etc, some limited coding like ignition timing, fuel quality, speed limiter etc.
I haven't used it on airmatic but on my wagon's rear air self leveling it can inflate/deflate the airbags manually, run diagnostic routines, rear/erase codes, run bi directional tests. It has a bunch of pre programmed test routines and fault tracing instructions. You can also see live data like air pressure and heigh sensors. you can get a 38 pin plug for the foxwell to work on W210s and all the other 90s cars.
A foxwell nt530 can deactivate/activate SBC as well as bleed the brake fluid (there's a brake bleed function built into SBC) check system pressure at each individual wheel. Besides that it can scan, diagnose and run test functions on every system on the car like SRS, airmatic teleaid etc. As a DIYer, I wouldn't own a w211 without this type of tool.
