It scans all foreign and domestic, except BMW and Mercedes which you can upgrade to do those as well. You can datalog with it, freeze frame and the bidirectional controls vary with vehicles. Hope this helps!!!!
    i wanted to see if i could get him a handheld (without adapters) that does bidirectional for all cars under 100k and that can turn off abs, airbag, engine lights etc.; after i get all the adapters for that snapon im over a grand. lot more than i wanna spend as a gift! but i appreciate ur input

    I was looking for something that was capable of reading/clearing anything from the airbag light on a vw to abs light on a gm. so ideal would be abs, pcm, and srs on vehicles on american, european, and asian vehicles; is it possible?

    I wonder if AutoEnginuity's software will do that? It has a lot of vehicle coverage.

    I know scanners for vws are a pain and expensive for a good one. A vagcom for a VW tdi is about equal to hptuners for our trucks. Powerful, but expensive.
