The lady has stated that she is in Sweden and that the Verus is a UK(Great Britain) unit.So apparently European coverage is the same as it is here.
When I first started complaining about no Saab coverage these cars were still in production.As the last models shared electronics with other GM models,Opel,Vauxhall,European Cadillac,I don't see how covering them would be a big deal.I'm guessing that Snapon scan tools aren't very popular in Sweden.

THAT could be an issue =)
No - there is not even a Swedish home page for Snap On scanners or any other tool. Unfortunatelly.
Buuut - there are some sellers here.

I don't know which exact model of equipment you have but you can download the users manuals from here.
Also, you can access the users manual from the "HELP" button on your screen.

The Microsoft Windows won't change how the tool itself displays the "English" vs the "metric" values.

Maybe someone who has one of these can mess around and see, or you can check the users manuals.
HTH.
The users manual is not that very specific at all. I have tried to find something there - without help.
I can learn to convert F to C - its not that big of a deal. But if Id like to share some results to others (here in Sweden) it would have been nice to have the units right.
Its Verus Wireless UK version. As I understand its generation 2.
After that came Pro and then Edge???

I have a friend who is looking into bying something like SnapOn or Autel.
He is repairing lots of different brands - most VAG perhaps (he has VCDS, as do I).
As a Europian mechanic - and not so familiar with oscilloscopes but would like to have access to one - would SnapOn still be a good choise?
Would he have to be prepared to get some other scanners too?

I was quite disappointed that Saab (GM Saabs) is not included in the scanner!!
Service manuals are included though!

Dear Dgsnap!!!
Thank you!!!!!
I thought I had seen the "Tools" bar somewhere.... You need to be inside the Scanner/OBD program to be able to see more than "Help section"
Actually side 31 and 32 in the Manual....
