It seems very comprehensive.
It runs off power from the diagnostic port but it is able to power up with the key off. At that point you can navigate through model selection.
I did some investigation before buying the device and found that the Foxwell NT500 scan tool appears to be capable of almost all functions (coding, adjusting headlights, taillight brightness, key fob tricks, system diagnostics, etc.) that a Ross-Tech cable does. And it has the capacity to update software via SD card. Thought there is little document on update part.
The adaptation functions covers documented and undocumented settings. The documented settings gives an explanation of the parameter and suggested values.
I first disabled the seat belt chime under “Adaptation” function item.

NT500 gives a very clear explanation to fault codes

Enter the new code using keyboard feature

I had to edit all of the other values and set them to their current values otherwise it says “Coding Not Complete”:
Coding completed

NT500 code scanner will log data and you can view live graphs while recording, see pictures below:

The Foxwell NT500 scanner I bought from Foxwellshop - Foxwell Diagnostic Tool Online Shop and well packed in a small bag.
Packing including:
Foxwell nt500 main unit
A USB cable
A main test cable
A mini software CD
Manual book
A carry bag
