If you have a smartphone do yourself a favor and get an OBDII bluetooth transmitter and run a smartphone app off it. Much easier to keep the bluetooth unit with you and odds are you'll always have your phone with you anyway. There are a ton of the transmitters out there for under $20 and a bunch of free apps for Droid and iPhone.

Anyway I digress.
I will look deeper into the Iphone app and bluetooth option, as "live data" sure is nice to troubleshoot with.

One of the Innova OBD-I/OBD-II scanners used on an older OBD-I Ford vehicle did not include any live readout for Fords OBD-I, but did include certain types of test functions for the engine.
