Maybe even offer a Android Friendly Snap On Legacy Software App covering all the OBD1 and earlier OBD2 with a micro USB adapter cable we can install on our smart phones or even on older Rooted Hacked Chinaman Tools.

$300 for 9.2 for Black Cartridge MT2500 including Euro
$500 Solus Pro including Euro
$650 Modis including Euro
$700 Verus
Of course the price of the Legacy software updates prices would need to go down to about the Rock Bottom $300 price near the end of a decade and Snappy would still be getting revenue from Legacy updates , from DIY back yard mechanics , retired guys working on old Sh@t, Guys still wanting to access OBD1 on something a little newer than a Brick with a 9V battery and a tiny black and white display , and supplementing older guys with Chinaman tools that occasionally won't work with an older OBD2 vehicle, or ocasionally need to scope something with a Modis or Verus.
But this is common sense - which appears to be becoming illegal everywhere and punishable by death by slow torture

I agree they might not of wanted to have this info out there and they might delete it. hence why i posted this so there is a some documentation.
Looks like "Another one bites the dust" should be Snap on's new theme song when it comes to scanners & diagnostic equipment. The tool truck guy should be required to play it on the truck every time someone buys a diagnostic tool
