There are many OBD2 scanners, but does this somehow differ?
Yes, because it is designed especially for Ford, Mazda, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles.
So supports specific features of the manufacturer protocols, making the FORScan more powerful in work with these models than any regular OBD2 scanner.
Why Choose The ELM327 USB:
Please note that many for Ford and for Mazda models (approximately since 2003-2004) are equipped with MS CAN bus, in addition to the regular HS CAN bus. In contrast to HS CAN bus, MS CAN bus is not supported by the stock ELM327, because MS CAN is a manufacturer-specific solution and located on non-OBD2 pins.
This ELM327 has been modified to allow it to implement the MS CAN bus.
This ELM327 USB supports HS CAN from the stock, because for Ford HS CAN completely matches to the OBD2 standards.HS CAN occupies pins 6 and 14. MS CAN bus occupies pins 3 and 11.

I downloaded Forscan, plugged the ELM327 into the Ranger, extracted the "As Built" file from the original ACM that had a sound output fault, installed the new ACM and uploaded the file to the new module, everything worked well, 4 star and not 5 star only because there was not way of determining which position the toggle switch was in.
Over all im happy with it, only prob i could find is there no identification if it in ms or hk mode on the toggle switch
Bit harsh with previous review because item cleared customs on 2nd May. It finally arrived Friday 13th May. Tracking from 2nd May pretty much waste of time.
Item with 2 Month license appears to work very well. So very pleased with it now.
Very prompt responding to purchase but because item came from overseas the shipping exceeded 3 days
