Best Bluetooth OBD2 Scan Tool??

I know there has been discussion on this, but lets do it again. What is the best Bluetooth OBD2 Scan Tool for our JGC?

The most functional at reasonable cost is probably a OBDLink MX+ OBD2 Bluetooth Scanner combined with either AlfaOBD or AppCar software. The MX an its app will get you the basics and some interesting data. If you want to get serious, lug out the laptop with the additional software to get into all the modules. The MX often goes on sale for 50% off.

Otherwise its subjective. Are you a buy cheap and make it work kind of guy or do you want something full featured and just works.

Some people think I'm stupid and I totally disagree. But my biggest fear is that me thinking I'm smart proves them right.

AlfaOBD is great on the software side, $50 for unlimited vehicles on Android, but you need an expesive adapter to fully use it for programming. It will work with cheap ones for diagnosis.
