Default palm obd 2 software

has anyone purchased one of the software programs available for palm pilots to read obd 11 codes and for data logging? I have been looking at a few of them and want some input from anyone that has purchased one as to how well they work.
thanks

My friend had one a while ago for his Handspring Visor (discontinued) and it worked wonders; saved him a TON of money. Go out and buy it, and if you don't like it, I'll buy it from you :P



(don't quote me on that, haha)

Default I have Autoenginuity

My Autoenginutity is for a laptop not a PDA but they have a PDA version available. I'm no mechanic but it helps a lot. I've been scanning my car and my daughter'* cars. The software will print a report and save a report and that works great because I have a wireless network. Once I have the code I do a Google search on the code and the vehicle, normally I'll get a forum saying what the normal fix has been. Our last code was P0458 and it was a Dodge Grand Caravan. The forums said 9 times out of 10 the fix is a new gas cap. I cleared the code for her and she'll get the gas cap and see if that takes care of it.

I've never used a PDA version scan tool software, but I had an Autotap and now have an AutoEnginuity scanner. The Autotap is more user friendly, but the capabilities of the AutoEnginuity far outweigh it'* shortcomings in the interface!

thanks for the input, i will check out the AutoEnginuity, i had not heard of that one. Auto tap seems pretty good but I would like to get one with the most capabilities possible for a reasonable price.
