As far as I can tell, the most expensive Innova scan tool does not do anything with MS CAN. It also looks like it only supports the main modules on HS CAN like PCM, ABS, and SRS. For example, it will probably not be able to retrieve any PAM codes, and certainly not any SJB codes over MS CAN whereas FORScan can. The point is the software above is FREE and combined with a $10-20 scan tool it will do almost as much as a professional grade scan tool that costs thousands of dollars!

If your point of posting is to question the usefulness of this article, I suggest you download FORScan and try it out for yourself with a modified scan tool to see all the things you are missing. It works with Mazda too.
