A customer calls and asks about something, or, you're researching a vehicle scheduled in for another day and "can I do function X....???" We have NO FRIGGEN IDEA whether our equipment is up to the task or not.

Witsend Made it to level 2!  Looks like you are on your way to becoming famous

Default Chinaman's listening in?

Over 2 and a half years ago since I suggested Snap on have a feature that you can enter a specific car and see if the scanner offers a special function before the car comes to you without hooking up the tool to communicate with the car to access the menus.
As a Craigslist bottom feeder I picked up an almost new replacement for my 4year old Hole Filler Port Freight 08 because what I grabbed also had a Jbox that now I can try to install salvage yard ECMs or whatever to cover my @zz for programming end as cheaply as possible, and what do you know, the Chinaman POS offers a way to check it before someone has a Turd towed here that may need to go to the dealer instead.

No, just bought it from the shop owner this week. He had 2 he sold off Craigslist that were new sitting around 6 months and just got registered and updated a week ago. All his techs just use the OE tools or his new Verus Edge.
I haven't tried flashing anything yet with it and not in any particular hurry to see if it will end up turninng a BMW, Mercedes , or VW dash display into Mandarin either from J files downloaded off a Chinese server. It's hard to say why guy bought 2 scanners , just to let them to sit around, but you never know , Maybe the guy got the deal on the Verus Edge works as a consultant with Snappy and the 2 units were only there Covertly being evaluated and reverse engineered by Snappy there, but nothing on mine seems broke on it yet, other than a 2010 Mercedes Benz auto scan of the 35 modules it communicated with, upon reviewing past car history s, it only showed a list of the first 5 codes of that car it had retrieved from a long list of Farfignueggen module codes it actually did pull. It definitely has a cool factor my Port Freight 08 lacked , but time will tell if there will be a Big Fail Factor that is going to erase any Cool factor. One thing I did read is that you now need to add additional micro SD card storage to be able to handle and process huge BMW updates properly if you run any thing else that is using space:
