    So I have a ELM327 that I use with Torque lite on my phone and I also have another really old one (15+ years) that works but pretty basic.. I have no idea where my ELM is right now, lost in the abyss of garage right now:rolleyes:

    Anyway wanted to see what everyone else was using and plus and minus of what your using. Maybe it's time for a upgrade.

    Go!

    I have the Snap-On Ethos PRO, and I am quite fond of it.

    I do collision repair not a lot of engine stuff, so it may not be powerful enough depending on how deep you wish to go.

    is what I what use with the Superduty. It can do everything the factory tools do; I need to someday pay to upgrade and get the software for the Jeep.

    But it's not cheap. it did however save me several thousands of dollars by avoiding an injector replacement for mis fire on the superduty, and can also see hidden codes that keep a monitor from completing, but not throwing the Check Engine Light. The hand held tools could not see the hidden codes, the android software also could not see the hidden codes.
