I have a question for Actron Tools. When are you going to upgrade your old scanner software? I have the CP9580 Autoscanner and it nor the CP9580A scanner will handle vehicles past 2010 according to your Tech Support. It will give some data for newer vehicles but it is very limited. Actron, are we to assume that we should discard these old scanners and buy new ones? Why should we do that? It won't be long and their software will also be out of date with no possibility for upgrade. Please upgrade the older scanner software so we can continue to use our scanners on new vehicles. If not, I for one will not be buying your products in the future.
