You have to ask yourself why it's half the price and does "about the same thing.  Do you really want to trust your bikes delicate electronics to this?  Being able to do my GSA & S1R is worth the price of admission

When the post is about resetting the service minder, it does everything the OP requires... Why pay over $500 when you can pay around $100 to do the same thing?

Somethings are worth the money, others are a matter of a single vendor solution ripping off the client-base.  If you're happy with the GS-911, that's cool, I wish I had your disposable income. 

I know I'll be going the OBD-II reader + MotoScan route.

Over $500 ?   I paid $399 US shipped
From the beenershop. Just sayin but ride safe and hope that works out for you😉👍
I don't have tons of disposable income , hell im a retired cop.  I just don't take chances in certain areas.  The GS-911WIFI is the gold standard in this area.

Correct. that is the Bluetooth version, works on the BSMK ECU (older BMWs like the 2010-2014 S1000RR). The newer models - S1000R, S1000XR, water-cooled boxers, 2015- RR, etc with the BSMX ECU need the WiFi version (red)

I thought people had been successful using MotoScan (or Carly, I think) and bluetooth OBD-II readers (with the adapter cable, if necessary), I'm planning on looking into this route over the winter.

Seems a lot cheaper than a GS-911 to me, and seems to have most of the functionality.

I have the Motoscan setup and it works fine. Also have a GS911.

The unit listed on EBay is a chinese copy. No updated software for it and it will not work on a 2017 model BMW. (and that CD is probably loaded with malware  :084:)
 So the Motoscan specifically will reset the service date? And it lists faults? I have no information on other than Hexcode units. Although with the OBDII plug on the 2017  bikes I suspect a good OBD scanner should help out.
If you ask a buddy to use their scanner on your bike of course you should chip in 10 $ or so. It is an expensive tool. Some have the enthusiast version that is only good for 10 bikes before you have to up grade for a couple of hundred to the pro model. So it is not cheap.

Motoscan is Android app so https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.wgsoft.motoscan&hl=en

Features https://www.motoscan.de/unterstuetzte-bmw-motorraeder/#S-Baureihe In German but easy to see with Google Translate

You want a decent scantool and I have the MX version but the LX version will work fine. You can try cheaper scantools but I wanted one I know would work

MX https://www.scantool.net/obdlink-mxbt/
LX https://www.scantool.net/obdlink-lxbt/

Adapter cable if needed http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/BMW-10PIN-ICOM-D-Cable-ICOM-D-Motorcycles-Diagnostic-Service-Cable-LIFAFA-/272648633738?hash=item3f7b1ffd8a:g:u0YAAOSwD5BZbfuX

Bikes tested so far:

2015 S1000R
2016 R1200GS
2017 R1200GS with new OBD2 plug
