What is best Renault diagnostic tool: Foxwell NT520 or Renault CAN CLIP?

What is best Renault diagnostic tool: Foxwell NT520 or Renault CAN CLIP?   Please advise: Foxwell NT520 Renault is better than Renault CANCLIP diagnostic tool?

Reply:Personally speaking, I think Foxwell NT520 better.First, Foxwell Nt520is a hand-held scan tool, convenient to take it anywhere.Second, Nt520 is not necessary to use with a laptop, while CANCLIP require a PC/laptop/computer.The last but very important, Nt520 not only is able to do OBD2 diagnostic test but also work for special functions on Renault, while Renault CLIP can do diagnosis and reprogram ECU. Look here: Foxwell NT520 Renault Car List and Abilities Confirmed
