Arrow Looking for OBDII Scan Tool Recomendation. Good and Bad.

If you own a scantool, scan tool, OBDII OBD2 diagnostic tool, could you say a few words about it? I am looking to purchase one that will include pulling transmission codes.
Thanks, MNBen

Name/Brand?
Does it read all codes? Tranny, airbag, etc?
Does it reset the codes?
Price?
Where to buy?
Would you recommend it?

Hey man, Ive owned a scan gauge 2 and it worked really well, there's lots of options available to read different codes and processes that the engine does. However, I just picked up a Jet Tuner and it has a Scanner on it as well that is less customizable but you get 2 for the price of one. The ability to tune every thing in your engine from shift points to taking off speedo limiter and an EZ tune function as well as scan for codes etc.. Its Great! Hope this helps

www.ultra-gauge.com

Also check this out. I have one and it is awesome and the cheapest u can buy. Plus u get benefit of active gauges.

Don't get the scangauge,expensive as hell. U will pay twice the amount.of the ultra gauge and IMO is an inferior unit. Just paying for the name.
