Default Peugeot Planet or OBD2?

In the process of buying a 2016 508 and wife currently has an 2002 206cc which we are looking to replace with a 207cc, probably around an 09 or 10 plate.

Primary is diagnostics on the 508 but would be good to be able to look at the 207cc as well.

Peugeot Planet or an OBD2 reader? I know OBD2 readers vary tremendously in price but would read not only the Peugeots but also other cars.

Where can I get Peugeot Planet and how much is it?

Apologies if this is covered, took 3 minutes to type, would take 10 minute to search forums and I have to go to work right now!

Planet all day long as generic readers can be very hit n miss

You get Peugeot diagnostics clones (Lexia interface, Planet/Diagbox software) on eBay or Aliexpress. Expect to pay 50 or 60. Prices below that are usually older hardware releases, which might be ok on your 206, but probably not on later cars. Look for "full chip" and Issue C. The real McCoy costs an arm and a leg, so everyone uses clones.

Use a Windows 32-bit OS - most people report problems with 64-bit with Diagbox, and Planet only runs on 32-bit. XP SP3 is favourite, but 8=10 work. If your PC OS is 64-bit, install a 32-bit OS as a Virtual System (VM), or buy a cheap old XP laptop.

Do a search on this site - there are tons of information.

Thanks both - back from work now so will have a search of the forums for information and hopefully get something ordered soon...being able to use and understand it is a different matter of course!

I was looking at the OBDLink LX which is a similar price (about 65 on Amazon) but works from a mobile rather than needing a laptop, that and the fact it would work with any car rather than being limited to Peugeot/Citroen is quite appealing - but not if it's not likely to work as well.

OK, there is one on eBay at almost 115 from tools4car but over 800 sold and excellent feedback. I actually found their website yesterday when looking for it and they do seem good albeit expensive. This appears to be the same as the ones you can find for considerably less money but I'm hoping to keep the car for 10 years and over that period of time 50 saving for a cheaper one is insignificant so unless somebody has a better suggestion I'm going to order it when I get home from work this evening

I've had the Planet/diagbox interface for some time now, revision C. Worked well with our 206 and my earlier 307. Recently ugraded to later software so I could use it on my 308 T9. Works fine on that but now won't connect to the 206. Have to use my EOBD scanner on that now. Jut be aware that this stuff is a bit flakey.

Thanks for the heads up @brilec, it's primarily for my 508, anything else is a bonus so it's a case of in for a penny, in for a pound...or almost 115 of them as I've ordered one from tools4cars at probably double what I could have paid!

Now to downgrade my old laptop to Windows XP...or maybe I'll look to make it dual-boot

You need diagbox for later cars planet is for older cars it uses the same interface though if you plan to actually diagnose and fix issues the planet/diagbox is best as most handhelds dont get into many of the systems.

Planet needs XP diagbox does not.

TIPS:

During the installation of Planet/Diagbox, do not plug the Lexia interface into the PC until prompted, or the drivers will not install correctly, and you will have to delete and start again.

Do not attempt to install both Planet and Diagbox on the same PC. Diagbox will detect Planet and want to delete it. Diagbox incorporates Planet, so, if you need both, just install Diagbox.

I'm planning on running Win7 Pro as that's the only 32bit OS I have at the moment! Hopefully that will work with Diagbox.
