does anyone know if there is OBD compliance in Canada. I'd hate to buy the scanner only to be shut out.The ability to talk the OBD protocol may still be a country-by-country item.
Here in the US it has been required since 1996.
In Europe (and the UK) the service manuals still show it as optional in 2006.
I would ask a service garage if it was required in Spain.
If not, MB may be (almost) forcing you to use MB service facilities by not including OBD compliance.
