Yes, NT644. But I went over the top. NT644 is ALL Cars & ALL SYSTEMS. One can choose European Cars & ALL Systems for half the price of NT644. There are a lot of different pro scanners to choose from. One can get the NT624 or NT614. For MB either one will do. If you go to the Foxwell site , you can read about the specs & decide which one suits you.

I purchased an Innova 3160b a couple of years ago (43sqd recommended it). If you choose enhanced codes, then select Chrysler/Jeep, it gives you the choice of reading either engine or transmission codes. I haven't had any transmission codes returned but it seems to work.

Can anyone tell me if this tool can read a 2003 Sprinter USA/NAFTA diesel model?
I don't see anything in the videos that I've seen that show that model. Does any of the updated firmware add Sprinter to the list of available vehicles?
Thanks!

I bought a i980 to troubleshoot CEL on 98 ML320. It worked for a week or so but now does not offer the ML320 or ANYTHING other than Sprinter under the Diagnose selection. It used to...

Called iCarsoft 2X ... got recording saying to leave a message... not mentioning that the phone number WAS iCarsoft.
Sent 2 emails asking for help to address on web site... so far no reply.
This does NOT bode well.
Horrible support... or seamless lack thereof.

That's too bad. Hope you are able to reverse the charges on your credit card.
Thanks for the heads up. I'm going to skip the iCarsoft i980 and go with the Foxwell NT622 for $256.50

Hi Art. I was wondering how you like the Foxwell NT644? Has it seemed to do all that you were hoping and was advertised? I ordered the Foxwell NT622 to try on my '03 Sprinter OM612. It appears to be the exact same hardware just limited to European only vehicles and also does not have Service Interval reset or EPB/Brake caliper function.
Any thips you can give me would be great!
Thanks!

It does all that is advertised. Simple to use, regular updates. I don't think you will miss the service interval or EPB. Its a good machine. You wont regret it. Play with it for 30min & you will know all the ins & outs, its user friendly. You have to download the software from their site so you can update it.

After reading this thread I got very excited and wanted to purchase one for my w210. I had my transmission replaced last year, new conductor plate, etc... Car runs fine. Check engine light comes on once in a while and I don't think any stored error codes have been erased yet. Someone posted a few pages back that the iCarsoft i980 does not work for. The w210. It skips it in the list when the choosing vehicle screen pops up.

Art does your foxwell allow you to control any modules or just read information from the modules?.
