To diagnose Saab, tech2win software or GDS2 software?

Question: I have all the VXDIAG devices but can’t seem to find the Saab software, I want to diagnose Saabs as well as Vauxhall.

Review 1:
Tech2win do not support SAAB
Only GDS2 cover SAAB between 2010-2012
For SAAB you need Tech2 hand-held tool
There is a patched SAAB PCMCIA for Tech2win but this will not work well but only (maybe) in 9-3 Sport as I remember.

Review 2. Also, the Mangoose Pro GM II Cable with Tech2win will work for Saab.

Review 3. tech2win can work with Saab, except SPS. here is a Russian version of the card. tech2win can be used with almost any j2534 hardware, I’m using MDI and Openport.

So, which one works with Saab: GM Tech2, Mangoose Pro GM II Cable or MDI or MDI2.
This has to start with the difference among GDS2, Tech2Win, Global TIS and TIS2000.
