Can someone explain or point me in the right direction: My understanding is the CAN tool can only tell you if you have a fault code store in the ECU and can clear it, without the need for a PC/laptop. I don't understand what the PC is being used for?? Is there an application on the PC that reads the codes? Is this a different tool than the CAN Tool used to do this?

Thanks in advance's the BT software itself. It provides a lot more information for you.

To get an idea, check out my YT video:
