I have both Digimoto ( and proscan
( and tend to use digimoto more often. They both work
great, have nearly the same features. The data display is a bit different
between the two. I just happen to like the current version of Digimoto. I
bought proscan first and tried the digimoto demo with the proscan hardware
and liked it better. Costwise they are pretty much the same. The features of
either are much better than you get from a handheld scanner at about the
same price. Digimoto has a package deal that covers most all OBD II
compliant vehicles, Proscan probably has an equivalent package.

I know this topic has been discussed here before, but I can't remember any
of the advice. :(.

What's a good scan tool for automobiles?   The current pressing need is for
an OBD II car ('01 Subaru Outback), but I also have a '91 Nissan 240SX and
a '91 Vette (computer at least, the engine is in an El Camino)

I'd like to get something that can read codes and reset the Check Engine
Light for OBD II at a minimum.  After that, I'd like something that could
do the other cars, and finally it would be nice if it could also connect to
a PC (I'd even be interested in stuff that only works with a PC - i.e. no
internal screen)

        Sears currently has a couple of sale: the Actron Autoscanner  CP9135
(Sears PN 47059) and the EQUUS 1003   (Sears Part # 20895).  iThe EQUUS has
a USB connector but neither mention working with OBD I.
