I have 2016 caddy maxi. What are people using for a scanner?

VCDS is the best

ODB eleven is virtually as good and from what I've read it's more user friendly

Some people have recommended Carley, but I've no experience of it

I use OBDEleven for quick and easy.

VCDS does a tiny bit more. Autoscan allied with the advice forum is a great feature - don't bother with mobile upgrade (unless that is your only option) I never seem to get mobile to work !?! Wireless connection is kind of nice but you need a wired connection for FW updates if I remember correctly.

Carly is pretty limited, or was when I tried it. I keep it just because you can use the dongle with generic OBDII apps. Good dongle.
