scanner

Good Morning all,

I am looking to get a new scanner. I know there are many out there, I also know I will get about a thousand different recommendations but what do you all recommend?

Thanks all.

I own an older version of this one.

At least I think it is. LOL.
I can view and graph live data with mine too.
At least I am pretty sure I can. I know for sure I can view live data.
It was reasonably priced, about $35 7 years ago, but there was one reason I chose it.
I found a video of a guy putting one through its paces when researching it.
He did it on an '00 XJ in the video.
And since that is the exact vehicle I wanted it for purchased it. LOL.
Sad thing is that it is overkill for me.
Just cause I can look at the live data does not mean I know how to interpret it so...... LOL.

How much are you willing to spend? That may limit the responses to a few hundred.

I own an ancient Snap On 2500. When I rebuilt my 4.0 and I needed to verify that the cam/crank sensors were in sync, this tool was the only one I had that would do it. These can be had cheaply but you need the cartridges for your year/make vehicle. I also have an OTC 3111 PRO that was very good. I now have an AUTEL Maxi-Scan that I think is the best of them all. You can graph everything and it came in just under $200.
