Are you confused by the different features and coverage of the Foxwell tools?
If so, please click here to go to our Foxwell Tool Chooser.
This is a page where you simply select the region of car manufacturers you want to cover (e.g. Europe, Asia), and we'll show you the suitable tools and what each tool offers.
NT680 scan tools come with free 'lifetime' software updates! (All the time the tool is manufactured or supported, updates will be free).
To apply software updates to the tool you will need a Windows PC/Laptop and an internet connection.
To register the tool you will also need access to your email account.
If we have sufficient time between your order being placed and being shipped, we will usually install the latest
available updates for you on the day the order is shipped.
Registration part 1 - Create an account
You firstly need to create an account with Foxwell and register your tool.
This must be done through the FoxAssist update software, which can be downloaded for free from the Foxwell UK website.
Just select your tool from the list on the Foxwell UK
Updates page and follow the instructions to download the latest version of FoxAssist.
The file downloaded will be a compressed zip file. Open that file and run the installer inside it. Please note: the installer will also install a Microsoft Visual C++ runtime - this is required for the software to
run. It may require a Windows restart after installation before first use.
Once installed (following a Windows restart if required), open the FoxAssist software, and click the Register button.
Then on the registration form:
Fill in your email address and your choice of password.
Then press the 'Send Code' button, and wait for a confirmation message.
This will immediately email you a verification code (valid for 10 minutes) to confirm the email address is correct.
** Do NOT press the Send Code button more than once, as each press generates a new code, invalidating the previous one - it
may take up to 10 seconds for the confirmation message to appear **
Check your email for that code, enter it, then click the Free Registration button to complete registration.
Once the details are accepted you will be returned to the main screen.
Enter your email address and password, then click 'Sign In'.
Registration part 2 - Add your tool to the account
Connect the tool to your PC using the supplied USB cable.
Once the Main Menu has loaded, select the 'Update' option on the tool.
The tool will enter update mode, and Windows should now see it as a 'USB Drive'.
In the FoxAssist software on the PC, the tool's serial number should now have been detected and will be displayed
in the top-right corner.
Select the 'Activation' tab on the left side.
The tool's serial number should be displayed at the top of the page, next to an 'Activation' button.
Press the Activation button to activate the tool and register it to your account.
A 'successful activation' confirmation message should be displayed, then the tool's serial number will move to
the 'Activated' section.
Now close the FoxAssist software.
Updating your tool
To update your tool, connect it via the USB cable and select the 'Update' mode as before.
Once Windows has detected the SD card drive, run the FoxAssist software and login again.
The software should automatically detect the tool and show you a list of installed software.
Any available updates will already be ticked (if none can be ticked, you are up to date!)
Click the Upgrade button to download and install available updates.
When all updates are installed, close FoxAssist, then press the 'Enter' button on the tool to return to the Main Menu.
You can now disconnect the USB cable.

delivery was amazing ordered one day got the next,
as for the the nt680 pro. As a weekend mechanic i enjoy working on my own car and the cheap readers are ok if you want just engine codes, but most cars now have a lot more going on, lots more sensors and stuff you can do at home if you knew what the multiple of lights on the dash was screaming at you. This tool is just as good as what most garages have got, its a little bit slower but does everything you need it to do .
easy set up ,free life time update, all makes of cars and at a reasonable price
any car enthusiast should have this and even some pro mechanics

After a few email conversations with Mike West at Gendan I purchased a NT680 OBD2 scanner. I have found Gendan to be very helpful to date and would not hesitate to recommend them. Oh, and the confirmation of delivery was very funny too. Ordered one day and delivered the next. Came very well wrapped and had two small packs of sweets in with the scanner. Grandson enjoyed those. Thanks again for all your help in these very odd times. Take care and stay well.

Not quite as intuitive or quick to use as I was expecting based on experience of other tools. Disappointed that it wouldnt retract the Electronic Parking Brake fully to the service position on a Renault Grand Scenic III, despite the claimed coverage, which led to some embarrassment with a customer. Good update service though so hope gaps like this will be filled in....

so far so good! being a seasoned mechanic I knew that getting 1 scanner to do everthing is an impossible ask. I used to have a £3200 snap on scanner with £90 a a month software updates.
This was overkill and still had gaps in the coverage.
So far, this intermediate scanner has been brilliant for code reading and service light reseting.
gettting it from Gendan meant that I have back up should I need it too.
