QHow did the tool/equipment function as far as saving you time?

A: The Bluetooth capabilities allow for one tool to be needed to do the testing and programming and offer powerful vehicle-specific scan tool capabilities.


Q: How has using this tool impacted your shop's profitability?

A: Speed and efficiency. The universal sensors help by lowering inventory needs. The pre-scan and save/email feature is pretty awesome.


Q: What kind of setup was involved before using the product?

A: Minimal setup, turning on, connecting to shop Wi-Fi, and then creating a Foxwell account, within several minutes this was easily done. I will note the confirmation email got snagged in my Gmail spam. That happens so I knew to watch for it, might be helpful for others to know it can happen. 


Q: How easy was it to use?

A: It is Android-based, and I really like that it has features, like expanding font size, just like any other Android phone. 


Q: How was its packaging? Did it come with any accessories?

A: It came professionally boxed and a hard plastic molded case was included. Plus, it comes with a charger cord, a sizable printed instruction manual, and four universal TPMS sensors. 


Q: Was there a manual included? If so, did you use the manual, and was the manual easy to understand?

A: A full printed instruction manual is included. The tool is so intuitive that many will not use the manual, but I really like having a paper manual with the tool that I can reference.


Q: What features did you like?

A: There is a lot to like about this tool:

  • The screen size is not too big or too small.
  • Boot-up time is good, not lightning fast, but decent. Note, boot-time is slightly faster than previous generation TS5000.
  • Tool navigation is a breeze. Finding what function I want to use is easy and fast. Navigation is expanded compared to the TS5000.
  • The Bluetooth connection seems to be on par with the TS5000, it has good range and stays connected when walking around and away from the vehicle, like on the TS5000 Bluetooth is a real game changer.
  • Having a maintenance reset quick feature will make this tool a go-to for a lot of basic resets on oil changes, crank relearns, and other in-bay tests and calibrations. 
  • The TS7000 has a clean, crisp graphing feature that doesn't appear to miss anything.
  • The user can email the scan results from the tool to the service writer with just a few clicks.


Q: Are there any ways you could think to improve or add to this tool?

A: A wireless charging dock would round this tool out nicely. I can see this tool being a high-use tool and having to fiddle with plugging in the USB-C connector every time can be a hassle and cause charge port failures. 

A replaceable screen protector would increase tool durability and ultimately tool life. Additionally, boot time could be a little faster. Also, when viewing enhanced scan tool data, it would be nice to be able to globally graph all PIDs requested instead of having to select each one. 


Q: What types of jobs/repairs did you use this tool for? 

A: TPMS testing to locate, replace, and program faulty sensors on a 2007 GMC Yukon, a 2014 GMC Acadia, a 2010 Cadillac CTS, and a 2009 Chevrolet Traverse. 


Q: How does this tool compare to other tools you've used like it? 

A: I have had a TPMS tool of some variation since about 2008. The Foxwell tool screams quality, as soon as you see it and grab it, it feels like a high-end tool. During my two-week evaluation, I didn't find any holes in TPMS coverage and the TS7000 has impressively enhanced scan tool capabilities. 


Q: Noted functions or capabilities that are beneficial/not beneficial?

A: It's the most complete TPMS tool I have ever used. The enhanced diagnostics are quickly making this tool my first grab over my other heavy-hitting scan tools. 


Q: Most handy/beneficial function that streamlines the scan tools use during diagnosis?

A: Bluetooth, it works so well and has great range. 


Q: On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate this tool overall? Why?

A: I would rate this a 9.9. Easily the best TPMS tool I have used to date. Concerns about Android 9 reliability in the future are the only thing holding this tool back from being a 10.
