Experienced users’ recommendation:
Higher end units
Autoenginuity .. must but Ferrari (supercar) package
Make sure you get it from launch or a distributor of lanuch, the pro mini is probably the best value.
Less capable …
Autel ap200 ..this is a great one car choice for around 60 ..no activation or coding .. has reset functions and some maintenance functions
You can use Google search with terms above and you will get all discussions on that .. definitely worth the time to search and read .

Price & capabilities: Autel maxisys > X431 launch pro mini> Foxwell nt530 ($189)> Autel ap200 ($60)
For only Ferrari F430, you are highly recommended Foxwell nt530 scanner, which is cheap and performs trouble code reading, active and reset functions.
