Currently I have the snap on versus pro and I really enjoy it but unfortunately not able to update it anymore.

I’ve been trying out the Mac tools MDT10 and I think it’s very confusing and there is basically to much to get to one thing.

What’s your thoughts? I like the new snap on but the intelligence part is pure garbage same with the Mac tools version.

Looking to get some feed back on both new units thanks !

I have had the same issue with the MDT10.
It seems impossible to perform functions without dealer level training, and if I worked for the dealer I'd have the factory tool!
It did have much more functionality on a 2012 C class Mercedes-Benz than my Solus, but I was able to navigate the Solus with confidence.
I was never sure exactly what I was doing or looking for with the MDT10.
I've been test driving a Launch here and there and it's similarly counterintuitive. Although stepping out of ones comfort zone does come with a learning curve...

None on the Mac. We also have a Launch and find it can do some stuff on imports that Snap On can't, but I agree, it's kind of difficult to dig through on some stuff.
Our shop has a Zeus, and I find the "intelligent" part more annoying than useful. Happily I own the exact same scanner (internally) in the Verus Edge. Same exact thing, minus the big price tag and extra "intelligence". Doesn't do everything but I like how it works and love my value for the dollar. (I bought it used.)
We don't have an Autel but you might look into one. Many people like them. From what I've seen they are a little easier to use than Launches but every bit as capable and maybe even more so.
