Default What OBD-II Scanner Do You Use. Looking for Input

Hey Guys just like the tittle says I am looking to get an obd-ll scanner, and I'd like to know what you guys use or are experienced with, the main thing I'd like to use it for it's trouble shooting with live data, like when there are small problems that don't light up a CEL. I'd also like it to have if possible active test components, others features are welcome but that would be my main use.

My cap would be around $500 but feel free to input your experience in any.

Nowadays when you type obd 2 scanner the name Autel comes up a lot and reviews seem to like it, anyone try one of these? Thanks !

Chris.

Look at the LCDBC and it's various addons. I think that's what most people including me use these days.

For a 3/S specifically, the LCDBC "add on" module works well with the handheld touchscreen device for standalone operation. Everything else will be PC-based (e.g. HHH and EvoScan) and strictly ECU data and diagnostics (no SRS, ABS, ECS, DCC, ETACS). Handheld convenience would be a PDA, but now you are really going back in time. I have all of the above, and they each have their usefulness.

If you are asking in general, then there are soooo many to choose from. My Actron AutoScanner Plus has been doing really well over the years for various cars (OBD-II and CANBUS). It does live data, readiness monitors, and even reads some TCM's. Alternatively, I will sometimes use PCMSCAN with my Tactrix.

Oh I forgot to say I don't need it for a 3S, (I don't even have a 2nd g 3S) I just need it for a general use, I'd like to try to get one with Bi-directional scan/test.
