Selecting the right Star Diagnosis
I've done alot of research on the subject but cant seem to find all the answers to my questions. This info should be new to the forum and will help the next person in the market for the unit.
What's the difference between:
Must have cables for only working on M-benz cars?
Must have software programs included?
List of company's selling bad and good units?
What do newer software updates provide over older versions?
Why do some scanners work with cars 1989 on up and others 2000 on up (cable issue)?
I'm guessing C5 is the newest version. I found companies selling 4-7 cables included in to their deals.
Since there isn't a way to figure out how well built all the different china units are. Maybe you can post which units to stay away from and which ones are built better then others.
What is going through my head is to buy a C5 with the most up to date software for cars 1989 on up, and works with any computer.
