Scan Tool iCarsoft MB V1.0

Just received the new scan tool.
Had high hopes it would fill my needs to use on my 1999 SLK 230 R170.
I have both the 16 and 36 pin OBDII connectors. The unit even lists the R170 models and has the Vario Top diagnostic capability,
Unfortunately it will not connect to my version. Get an error message. Trying to contact the manufacture for troubleshooting help. If unable to resolve will try to return.

Certainly that make has been used, perhaps a different model/lead.

Having trouble establishing contact with iCarsoft or selling vendor by email and phone.
Only paid $106 including shipping. Also noticed this scanner is not listed on the iCarsoft web site

Just received a reply from iCarsoft Engineering. They currently are in process of developing software for the 1999 SLK 230. The Scan Tool appears to be what I am needing as it even covers the subsystems like the Vario Top faults. It should work on later model SLK cars.
Plan to return this one and wait for a newer model when available.

Just had an opportunity to test
the scanner on a Sprinter van, it worked very well. So my conclusion is the tool works on another vehicle but not on the the 1999 SLK

Just received a final reply from iCarsoft in the MB V1.0 scanner. They say the inside OBD2 port is for engine only. They are in process of developing the system software for the 38 pin connector inside the engine compartment. They advised we should return the scanner and repurchase when the new software is available.
