I would advise to get forscan. Very handy tool.

Overall I'm impressed with my dw10c smax. Nice to drive, the only thing that lets it down is the stereo.
You need to push the DSP button and scroll through the settings. I thought it meant display, but it's digital sound processing

It feels like it does if you engage it whilst driving. Just in the wrong direction.
