There’s a common misconception amongst DIYers (and even some professionals) that all scan tools and code readers are created equal. You might think that code reader you bought online for $9.95 is going to give you the same information as the dealer’s super-expensive scanner, but that’s not the case.

The truth is, there are a wide array of scan tools and code readers, all of which provide different levels of information and functionality. Click here to read the article and find out which type of tool is right for you.

I have several in the truck at all times. Firstly my edge monitor reads codes.

I also have a Bluetooth dongle that is in the glove box since it's quick and easy to plug into a vehicle and use my phone to grab a code quick.

And then I have my snapon triton d10. All depends what I'm doing. My EFILive autocal also reads codes, as does my ezlynk

Use the shops new snap on scan tool glad I didn’t have to pay for that puppy . It’s sweat tho 😁
My cars are all older, so I still have a Snap-On Scanner with 2012 software that I use on my personal cars. It's still my favorite scanner out of the ones I own.

You're definitely covered! The Triton D10 with its built-in scope is a great tool.
