    What tool are people using to look at their realtime data and logs? I am wanting a tool and software that will enable me to capture freezeframe data when codes are set and also use it as a realtime diagnostic tool. Resetting of codes would be nice too :)

    Link if you have one would be great :headbang:

    Just for those features? Theres no point for me to buy a whole HPTuners suite for just the reading side of it. Its pretty spendy anyways.

    EDIT: They want 400 for the cheap one, I know there are units out for less than that.

    Thats why I am wanting a PC interface, so I can view a lot at one time. I've found a few for less than $100 without software. Software ranges from freeware to 150 ish

    An interceptor is like 350.

    Ouch tech 2 is $4000...I think not lol

    Snapon is just a hand held, didnt see any PC connectable units....and cost was above 250.

    Same with Matco

    I'm talking about units like these:
    http://www.obd2allinone.com/sc/details.asp?item=obd2usb
    http://www.scantool.net/obdlink-ci.html

    My dad bought one when he had his 96 olds cutlass, haven't been able to get ahold of him to ask which one and where he bought his.

    Kinda hesitant on these last 2 units as the price is so low:
