Scanner/Code Reader

Ok folks, which scanner/code readers do you recommend for the W220? I am currently getting ABS, ESP, & BAS warning notifications. Iím leaning toward the
I-carsoft CR Pro, as that unit will scan more manufacturers than just MB. Any input and advice is greatly appreciated.

I tried the search function, however the search function seems to malfunction via Tapatalk app.

Can anyone recommend a source for the SDS system? I would need the entire setup. All the sources on eBay are confusing, since each offers something different than the other. I would prefer a reliable and proven source

What's more important? Your car or everyone else's....

And if I were going for multi cars...I would grab some form of a launch product before I-carsoft. From a prior user it showed some important stuff, but was unable to do anything about it unfortunately. (Personal opinion only)
Here is a small list of mine..
I carsoft can see some of this, but it can't make changes to it. Talking about the last two pictures.

I have the Mercedes and two Ford vehicles, so I was just thinking it would be nice to have a unit that could work in all the vehicles.

Hummm, so I see.

Then maybe you are right, I-carsoft pro might be the tool for you.
