Hello all.

I have seen many references to ODBII interfaces to laptops and it would be nice if everyone that had one reports the good bad and the ugly about the package they use.

If you have some cash to burn your can get the original VCT2000 here

If you ever consider an ECU upgrade you could go for one from IPDUSA
http://www.ipdusa.com/fi-6/
After the upgrade, you have the option of retaining the OBD II Softloader that can not only pull codes but also to reset them after you have done the work.

I presently am looking at Scan Gauge II from IPD. Wondering if anyone has any inputs or feedback on this?

I've also got the Actron that I got from Pep Boys. Am happy with it even if it is a little on the huge side. Nothing bad to report on its performance or ease of use. Does quadruple duty with my Impala, the misses Jeep, parents Olds, and various family members cars . Money well spent.
