Scan tools- anybody have one they recommend?

Looking at picking one up, since I'm almost always working on something somewhere...

Right now it's Harrison or Auterra, but I ran across this one on here a bit earlier.. http://www.obd-2.com



Anybody have experience with any of these units?

I connect via a palm pilot m500 using pocket logger software. Lets me record 20 parameters in real time. It also lets me check error codes and clear them.

hey now! Just because my car is a little old doesn't mean you can be that hard on it.

GUESS WHAT! Even the idle is controlled by the ECU!

I've used the Snap-On MT2500 before, works great but might be alittle spendy :hs:


The Snap-On SOLUS is insanely powerful, after using one it's hard not to buy it


Although you can build your own OBD-II scanner for about $40, probably less depending on where you source the parts. You've got the Lappy part covered

Heh.. This week I won a $200 gift certificate from the local Oreilly's as part of their grand opening goodies.


Sooo, I'm going to have them order this guy for me: http://autoxray.com/products.aspx?sub=scanners&id=31
