easier for you to research it instead of explaining it...you asked for a scan tool so i posted a link to the scantool i used for smarts

 

laptop?,,,yes,,,unless you want to drag a desktop one outside to your car

 

40?...yes...i think thats close to what i paid

The genuine version runs on some android tablet.  Go for that if you are loaded. Will cost you around CAD 3000.

oops..link was posted in a different thread

 

search on aliexpress they are usually under $50 shipped...and most come with the software and key generator to activate it ....you need to follow their install directions right in order to get it working....key generators will always show as a virus 

 

 

dont bother with bluetooth versions...it just complicates it more

+1 for the Delphi.  Not had occasion to use mine on my own Smart yet, but reset the airbag light on my Sister's new (to her) 451 recently.

 

I'm not a computer buff by any means, but it runs just dandy on my 5 year old middle of the road Dell laptop.

i use a cheap autel 609 scan tool daily  ...useful for most cars but did not read anything on smart other than basic engine codes and some data....i always grabbed the delphi for smart

 

 

autel does make some really good high end scantool though if you have the dough for it

Autel FR704 which was meant only to read French cars. Autel made four identical looking scanners but loaded with different software, one scanner for French cars, one for German and Swedish, one for Japanese and one for US cars. I managed to source all software and have loaded what I need on my FR704. By reading my Smart as different models of Mercs I can read all systems. The scanner was not cheap. Cost me £165 new about  seven years ago.

when i last worked as a mechanics few years ago (part time job) i used an autel "tablet" fully loaded using a dongle and wifi. it was very neat.

i am waiting on carsoft i980 information because some seems to do the smart and some dont....depending on the vendor.

i contacted icarsoft direct.
