    Wishing you happy scanning with it GLK.... mine arrived today as well, but it's the MB11 version, so I will check it out and make sure that its a genuine iCarsoft tool. If not, back it will go. Otherwise, I will keep it and see how it goes. 1st test will be to see how it updates etc. Obviously, I would have much preferred the MB2 version... but from what I am reading on the forum, the MB11 was a good scanner to in its own right.

    Thanks!

    I did a quick scan today - cleared stored faults on parktronic system - very easy to operate, intuitive and convenient.
    I'm sure your MBII will be fine - there's not that much difference (battery registration and DPF are the main ones, I think).

    I very much like the look of these but would it work on my W168?

    The W168 is on the list, so yes it would.

    Can't tell which systems will be pulled during the scan, without actually being linked to a car, but don't see any specific notes on limited functionality, so hopefully - most, if not all of them?

    Are you planning to venture north of the M25 anytime soon?
    Would be nice to see you again, and we can play with a gadget or two ;)

    I'll be at Mercedes MK on the 27th, if that's any good?

    I was wrong, about not being able to see the list of systems - this clever little thing shows it in manual scan mode, when powered by USB right here on my desk.

    There you are Chris:

    So a total of 16 systems gets scanned on 168, which is not bad - the 169.333 gets 26, but then there are more computer bits in it ...

    Hi again GLK, did you take it straight from the package and plug it in to the vehicle, or had you to connect it to the computer and internet first?
    Regards, Jim2

    Straight to my car - no need to update or activate anything via computer.
    The pics above taken, when the unit was powered by USB lead (not via computer).

    The manual says there are two way to power up the unit - via OBD port on your car or USB lead supplied.

    Thank you David, it would indeed be nice to meet up again. Unfortunately I won't be able to get to MK.

    It looks like I really should get one of these scanners, my car is now rather old (doesn't show it though!) and this will make it easier to look after.

    It's a great gadget, I wish I could utilise all of its functions (service, oil etc), but even with what I can - really helpful.

    I bought a £135 mb11 from an "authorised" ebay seller last week.. Registered it online ,typed in all its serial numbers etc, and updating it could not have been easier with its supplied sandisc memory card and card reader.
    Took me straight to my gearbox problem too !
    My only problem was understanding what it meant !

    A quick question for anybody who has an MB II and a car with SBC. Does the MB II have the facility to disable the SBC so that pads can be changed and brakes bled etc? I've looked at the iCarsoft site and couldn't find any mention of SBC.

    I also have a question, one of the options is "sedan, t-model and sports coupe"
    What on earth is a t-model ?

    I can check that tomorrow, but mine is not MB II, it's MB V2.0 - would that still be of interest?
