Which ODB Scan Tool?

Postby iggs [OP] » Jul 19 2013, 9:23am

What ODB Scan Tools have folks got? Which is the best option?

I have done a quick google search and it throws up a few that link with an iPhone/iPad, this sounds handy but what experiences have people had?

What would you recommend for occasional use at home?

Ian

I have a product by Autel Ms300 about 80-110 $ works well can read data and reset check engine lights, plus it's Can bus (common area network) compliant. Also comes with a cd to look up code info. Very easy to use.

Check out this OTC, it works great has live data so you can watch sensors reacting and it also does ABS and air bag which a lot of similar tools will not do without spending a lot more cash. I got a deal on mine for around $200.
