Tool Owner's Discussion Thread - Schwaben BMW/Mini Professional Scan Tool

Anyone else purchase the Schwaben BMW/Mini Professional Scan Tool? What have you have used it for and what has your overall experience has been like? I find the back button doesn't work to back out of many of the sub-menus, is there another way to back to the main menu without restarting the entire unit?

Here are the pros and cons I've experienced:

Pros:
1. Free new battery registration.
2. Service light reset.
3. Error code reading and clearing.
4. Clutch adaption for DCT
5. ABS Pump activation for brake bleeding.
6. Reads # of lifetime battery registrations.
7. Reads # of lifetime brake fluid change service light resets.

Cons:
1. At the time I bought it, ECS Tuning advertised that it would be capable of coding within a few months via a software update. This never materialized.
2. It is not capable of changing the Ah setting for a new battery.
3. The user interface has lots of dead ends where you enter into a sub-menu screen and then find you cannot go back to the main menu, so you have to power down the unit and turn it back on to keep using it.
