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.

Questions & Answers:
Q: What is Extended License, why and when do I need it?
A: Extended License provides access to Configuration and Programming functions of FORScan, and also few Service functions (such as PATS programming).
Base FORScan functionality (connection, retrieving vehicle information, reading parameters, read and reset diagnostic trouble codes, run tests and service functions etc) do NOT require Extended License.
There is a free 2 month Extended License that can be issued for anyone who has account on forscan official forum. Also there are paid longterm and lifelong licenses. More information about Extended License can be found on forscan official store.
Q: Why FORScan doesn't show function Y for my car? When this function will be added?
A: Functions may be very different for different models and especially different generations of models and different brands. For example, at this moment there are 50+ known versions of ABS bleed procedure for Ford models, only 10+ are implemented in FORScan.
We do not add functions just for fun, as number of functions is huge because of multiple versions. So we add functions by requests. More requests from users for a function - more chance for this function to be added in the near future.
Q: How can I get Extended License after trial period?
A: At this moment only 2 months free Extended License is available. When it is expired, you will be able to issue another 2 months one, also for free. Or you can buy long term (1, 3, 5 years) or lifelong Extended License.
Q: I can work with this software for most modules of my Ford F150, but it can not see the IPC module, is there any problem with the cable ?
