BR-3 OBD2 Scan Tool Software

I have not used my BR-3 scan tool in quite some time. Being that it’s only a reader, and I have my HPTuners scanner/programmer. I was asked to use it at work on a friends’ car and after getting setup realizing that I do not have the software and going to their website, that it is no longer available and the software is not there either.

I have posted the version I have. Version 4.2.

You can download it here. Also available is the DataSheet.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    I have been unable to use my BR-3 tool since I switched computers and found that the manufacturer’s website has been taken down.

    I really like the tool and I’m glad to see that I can now get back to using it!

    This was helpful, thanks! I still have a BR-3 that I pulled out today to diagnose an old truck and needed the software.

    Many thanks, I down loaded this software in 2013 but the computer it was on crashed. That was the second computer that crashed, loosing the software. I will keep an extra copy this time. Thanks again.

    Can someone tell me, can this software be used with any other USB to serial or bluetooth connector? Thanks.

      I can tell you that it is a hard fact that no, this software will only work with the BR-3 unit. This is not to tell you that you are at fault, but that this software actually talks only to the BR-3 unit because it is the odd ball here. Most software lately will work with a variety of tools as they use a similar chipsets (Mostly ELM style chipsets). The BR-3 unit used very special, non-standard parts and because of that is no longer available and no longer sold.
