TouchScan is a powerful software that allows you to connect your computer to your car's onboard diagnostic system (OBD-II) using an OBD-II device. With TouchScan, you can read and clear trouble codes, view live data and graphs, perform on-board tests, customize your sensors, and much more. TouchScan works with any OBD-II compliant vehicle from 1996 onwards.


But before you can use TouchScan, you need a license key. A license key is a code that you enter in the software to unlock its full functionality. Without a license key, you can only use TouchScan in demo mode, which limits the number of sensors you can view and the duration of each session.


So how do you get a license key for TouchScan? And how do you activate it in the software? In this article, we will answer these questions and more. We will also show you how to upgrade your TouchScan with the professional add-on, which gives you access to more features and enhanced diagnostics. And we will give you some tips on how to use TouchScan effectively for your vehicle diagnostics.


By the end of this article, you will be able to use TouchScan like a pro and get the most out of your car's performance. So let's get started!
