It's Don Eilenberger..

 

Basically http://www.obd2tool.com/goods-5052-Launch+X431+iCarScan+Bluetooth+Diagnostic+Scanner+for+Android.html - although I ordered mine over a year ago. I'm using the Android based software. I haven't heard from anyone trying to use the iPhone based software yet.  As far as the Porsche version - whatever was the latest download.

Don: Thank you, I have a X431 R and a Durametric , looks like I may need another electronic gadget. I would like to see the service level on my Cayenne;s transfer case lube prior to changing it.

I reset mine to 0 when I changed the oil. I should check it again and see how it's changed. If you buy the ICarScan - to reset the TC  oil use/wear numbers - the engine can't be running, but the ignition must be on. That fooled me for a bit. Got a communications error message when I went to reset it. Once I turned the engine off (leaving ignition on) - it reported "Success" - and the numbers were reset.

 

I'd also love to see other people's numbers before changing -- especially anyone experiencing problems.

Got mine but it doesn't want to let me register it with the serial and verification code they sent me.

Persist. Mine was reluctant at first also. Dunno why. Eventually it "took".

Adding a few data points from another forum - dunno if he's (CarGuyNVA) a member here, I don't believe Greenwich07 is:

2013      CS              30,000      London GB  ?        Porsche OEM          Y        Greenwich07            New XFerCase (Warranty)

 

 

Note that the bottom 4 did not get the oil changed to see if that would fix the cases - they were warranty cases (CPO) so they just got new XFerCases per CPO warranty.

NOTE: So far all the warranty TC replacements were done without trying a change of oil first - so we don't know if those Transfer-Cases would have responded positively to a simple oil change.

 

NOTE: I'm discontinuing updating this table as of 5/2/17. The problem is I can't post an image to this forum, and that's how I'm doing updates on other forums. My hosting the image isn't happening - if the forum isn't interested in maintaining images in posts then I'm simply not posting them. Sorry. You can find the latest versions at:
