Has anyone used this software for OBDII Diagnostic Scans? It looks like you just need to buy the correct cable and download the software to use it. Useful or not? Check the link; http://obddiagnostics.com/index.html
has great diagnostics and read outs.
It looks like for more money the above unit can add on a speed sensor and give you some performance data as an option.
You really need to have more than just a casual need for either system.Like you are a total diy'r that is intent on tracking down that problem that is beyond the scope of the hhs.It would pay for itself in one saved trip to the shop,but then again most of those simple items can be resolved with some good diagnostics and a hand held.
I see your point about the handheld, however, the software is free at this web site that I mentioned in my original post and only the cable is needed to connect to a laptop. For about the same $$ as a mid priced code reader this scan software appears to offer more features, that is if it truly works as advertised.
or it could end up like the nightmare after market wis cd's,the few dollars more spent on the autotap unit avoid having to create software functions that are already developed by experts.For 199 you know it works and is backed up.The other guys,nada
or for 39 bucks(code scanner from harbor freight tools 94169) and a can of beer
