This one only comes with the OBD2 cable, plus a USB charging cable and outlet adapters for UK/EU. Part of the appeal to me was that updates are free for two years, and that they are done wirelessly. When I pulled mine out of the box, plugged it in, and set up the wifi, it downloaded and installed ~50 updates in a few minutes.

Buying a new scanner every decade or so seems pretty reasonable to me. I'll be completely satisfied if this one lasts me that long.

One of the most important things that is often missing from Volvo stuff is the counters.  Drive a Volvo for a year, and it will have a dozen or two codes stored all over the car.  My autologic will tell me when it first set, how many times it's set, and when it last set.  Anything that's only set once can be pretty much ignored.

The counter is very handy.

The autologic also cost me $7500 ten years ago...

That's an interesting point. I didn't take note of whether the DTCs stored showed a counter or a date, but I will look for it in the future. A lot of them seemed like really obscure stuff, so it wouldn't surprise me if they were set once for whatever reason, but I agree that it would be instructive to know for sure.

But I paid a lot less than $7500, so I won't be too disappointed if this thing doesn't give me that information.
