Hand held OBDI2 Scanners

Recommended Posts

I think its time to get one of these tired of begging to use one. I was looking on ebay and see them from 50.00 to 300.00 will the cheap ones work and if not what do I need?

I got one of the Bluetooth ones that you hookup to your Android phone and it works awesome. that may be a different route to go. obd2 unit was about 15-20 bucks, the torque software was 7 ish.

I bought an OBD Link SX USB to OBD II adapter and it came with some basic OBD WIZ software. I can see the basic parameters everyone mentioned, active & pending codes, and I/M flag status. They have specific software packages for GM, Ford, etc but I haven't taken the plunge. It's not as good as the Snap On Solus or OTC/SPX scan tools but it was around $40 (as opposed to $4,000+).
