The manual is not great, but it is not hard to figure out how to install software and modules on it. First, install the FoxAssist software on your PC. Create a login and password, and authorize your unit using the serial number at the back. Keep FoxAssist open. To install car modules and update software, connect the NT530 to the PC using the included USB cable, and select the 'Update' menu on the NT530. This should open a page on the FoxAssist with the modules and software that have been authorized for the unit, and the version numbers that are already installed. You can then select which software you would like to update the unit with.

I recently purchased the Foxwell NT530 scanner with 2 car software. However the tool came with no software. Tried registering on their web.... it failed. After trying for several hours I gave up and tried to call. Was on hold for a long time... gave up and emailed them. Reply came back few days later. Sent me to a site to download Foxassist and manual. By the way, the manual is a piece of junk. Foxassist could not register also.. another day went buy... then finally was able to register... but then the software update did not work. After another 5 days of emailing back and forth, uninstalling and reinstalling software support engineer was able to resolve the issue. Honest to God, I would have returned the device .... if I only knew how. Even after repeated question, support never told me how I can return it for full refund. Anyway the user interface is not user friendly. For a tool that may end up costing you over 300-400 depending on if you have 3 or more different make.. this tool is not worth it. you can't program with it. However for diagnosing purpose it has good coverage. Also this company jack up the price on the web and then put a discount beside the price to sell at the original price... typical Chinese business model. Each make software is $60.00 You can buy dedicated or a good universal device for that. Just over priced. Had I known all this.. I would have stayed away.

My friend recently bought a Foxwell and he shares the same thoughts about a totally useless manual. I am thinking about a FoxWell or iCarsoft as a spare tester.

I know you guys are out of China, but you really need to work on customer support and a proper manual. This would never fly in Germany.

The user manual only in English provided by the Foxwell factory, sorry for the inconvenience.
And if you have any questions, you can contact your seller for further help.

Horrible service. NT 510 can not detect Mazda CX-5. Foxwell promises a lot, but holds nothing.

I have spent hours trying to download the Aston Martin software for the Foxwell NT520 - but the software won't download from Does the factory have my serial number? - it doesn't seem to recogize that I should have this car software for my device.

Would you please have a try again?

Terrible user guides and support. Tried to register yesterday but Web site just kept spinning for an hour - gave up and tried again today. Norton 360 wouldn't allow downloads because unsafe software. I've spent too much of my time on this - should have just gone to mechanic - cheaper
by Mr.Shadetree on Aug 19, 2018
Ok it took some trial and error to get a Foxwell ID and to register the NT520. The Users Guide that came with the tool is somewhat helpful but you have to "read between the lines" sometimes. As others said if you try to register on it just hangs...forever. So download Foxscanner and it works quickly to register. Then use the info above on this web page to download the software for the car brand you want. Once your tool is registered then FoxScanner recognizes the serial number so you can download through FoxScanner onto the micro card that came with the tool. I had also sent emails with no response, before I found this web page on how to download and upgrade. Good luck

Terrible customer support. The registration page in does not work, it hangs. I have no way to register and therefore download the corresponding files to the scanner that I bought.

I asked for help to register and / or download the files and after 12 hours I am still waiting.

Foxwell NT510 is a good tools, how ever i got a really bad support from them. I purchased porsche software for me to use it on the other car, guess what, im waiting for almost half a day waiting from there sleeping engineer to activate it.. I start 8:30am till not 1:15pm on the same day - still no luck to download the software. I hope you make it faster nextime.

Why is there no Mercedes-Benz Software nor update for my NT510??? Thats the whole reason I purchased Foxwell and thier product instead of the other brand, in order to do diagnostics and reparis for my MB W211 E320 CDI. Can we resolve this issue please im very dissapointed.
If you can just get me MB for the NT510, the rest I dont need.

Everything works great with honda/acura software. You need some computer skills for the first setup, but at the end, it works great.

Do you know if nissan/infinity software is avalaible ? Subaru ?

HORRIBLE instructions. NO CD when one was promised. Spent days on end with customer support just to load the software. No indication of what download file was called, hidden passwords etc. etc. Hate it already for all the time wasted.... and still cannot use it as scanner is not synching in with laptop so that I can load ONE VEHICLEs information. A waste of money so far.
