Aftermarket systems!!
I have sold DOZENS of BUDS kits to workshops who have purchased Inferior aftermarket kits only to discover IT WONT do all the jobs or dosent have all the features they need to complete a professional dealer level repair on a BRP product!!!!!!
We can beat any aftermarket system on both features & PRICE , just ask us for details!!

We get so many enquiries about the inferior aftermarket kits that are available and comparing them to the genuine

BUDS diagnostics system

!!
All i can do is promise you guys this......
With the complexity of these new vehicles , the hysterical lengths BRP go over releasing updates for ECUs/Clusters/IBR/IS and every other system you can think of there is NO WAY ANY aftermarket system can keep up with this.
To activate new import craft from the crate , update ECU, replace instrument clusters and provide a printable 6-8 page highly detailed report for your customers the  BUDS diagnostic system is the ONLY option available!!!.
If you are an independant shop looking to compete on an even level with your rival BRP dealer YOU MUST have equipment of the same level - or BETTER!! - see megatech licence key!


Can-Doo Pro
the

CanDoo

system is promoted widely on PWC Forums , NOT because its the best but because the Forum makes money from selling these kits!! , Internet Forums ARE NOT open independant sources of information , they are there to sell you stuff , for gods sake wake up guys!!!
Credit where it is due , those guys have done a good job with this system and seem to offer support & back up , if you are a home mechanic working on just a couple skis this is the system for you!! , However , this system dose have a couple of HUGE disadvantages when you start comparing to

genuine BUDS

!!
1-Price!!
The Candoo with a licence for 4 PWC is $500 or so - this is great for the home mechanic BUT as soon as you upgrade to more licences or the unlimited dealer licence the price skyrockets to something like $1750 with yearly renewals
PLEASE TELL ME why you would get this system  , when i can offer the GENUINE Full

dealer spec BUDS system

for $1250 with yearly licence key for $150!!!
2-Features & Functions
while these guys are good there is NO WAY they can keep up with the genuine BRP system!! , if you want to offer your customers the ability to work on Brand new 2014+ model skis , update Clusters & ECU, print out a detailed multi page report and keep right upto date with your rival BRP dealer then having the genuine BUDS system is the only way to go!!!
NO having to wait months or even years for updates to work on new models - we usually have the latest BUDS programs availabe within1 WEEK of then being released by BRP!!!
Please check out the BUDS screen shots below taken from a 2011 year
Seadoo IBR , these updates are ESSENTIAL on all late model PWC , if you buy and aftermarket diagnostic kit HOW THE HELL are you going to carry out these essential updates for your customers??? , you CANT and you customer will have to go back to the BRP dealer - and you risk loosing your customer!!! BE SMART and buy the best system avaialble for your business!!
While you are at it ask the candoo boys how they go about activating a RIVA Racing ECU!!! , seems only genuine BUDS system will do this!!

Just be aware , no matter how good these candoo guys think they are with updates and software for new models i can promise you - some way , some day you will have to work on a brand new ski or Bike in your workshop and the only thing that will do the job is Genuine BUDS kit
Scan Sea
these guys started with their first kit back in 2008 , back then we did not have much of an option , this was the ONLY thing available!!!
i paid nealy $4000 for my

Scan Sea

unit - man was i ripped off!!!!!!
the unit came with NO install instruction and i was left in the dark with the 
the main parts of the install , the software is protected buy a password and after about half a dozen expensive international phone calls trying to get the installation bugs out of this early system and trying to get an access key that actually worked the Spanish Bastard ended up putting the phone down on me when i complained!!!!! , said he was busy and i would have to call back!!!!!
Then the fun really started!!!! , even after the system got the access key it would still not work!! , after a further 2-3 weeks i FINALLY got the thing to work , but it took a lot of heated emails to get any help at all.
The final iceing on the cake was that i later found out that he was supplying software updates to other buyers of scan sea units while at the same time telling me there were no updates available just yet......... - when confronted with this he called me a 'stupid man' and would have nothing more to do with me!!!
ALL this my friends is 100% true , i finally ended up selling my system when i got BUDS to some poor SOB for $2000 and he thought he was getting a good deal.

Just before i sold my unit i decided to open up and take a look inside.......
check out the pictures in the gallery below , i recon there must be all of $25 worth of Radio Shack parts in there!!!! , and to think i paid 4 Grand for this pile of crap!!
and yes ,the main connector IS held in place buy a piece of pink foam!!!!!!

Scan Smart
here we go again!!!! , this guy has got this system on a youtube video and he wants $995 for it!!!!!! , OK girls & boys , just take a look at the 2 pictures- 
do these 2 units look similar!!! , one is the Thousand buck scan smart unit and the other is a $25 generic made in China universal interface!!
our spanish friend is buying the $25 unit , putting the sticker on it and calling it
"Scan smart" !!!!
only smart thing to do here is not get ripped of buy these guys.........
below is from a marine forum!!!!!

Does anyone have any experience with these units from scan world  
I recently bought one and have been able to read a 2005 Yamaha 4 Stroke 150 and thats it so far. Tried a Merc 225 EFI and no go, Factory said they had some problems with these. Tried a 2004 Suzuki DF140 and a 2010 DF150 4 Stroke but both had larger round connectors. Smaller more square connecters came with Unit, Factory is yet to respond to this.

Have the current software upgrade but the Outboard Menu only shows a portion of what I am suppose to be able to read, Factory says, no problem..

Seeing numerous "Runtime Errors" and aborts..

If anyone has one of these I would really appreciate any info you have on them since the Factory pretty much sells it too you and scoots... Customer Service/Tech Support is short not to the point emails so far....

It appears they are trying to get the Product to Market before it is really ready.


YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!
