OK, maybe I've got to be more specific here...

Is there anyone on these forums who has access to both and AutoXray (preferably 6000 model) AND an OBD-II, 1996+ GM vehicle?
If so, can you tell me whether you can read tranny temp and shift times with that scantool on that car?

OK, next question(*):

Which scantool model?
Did it read these things right out of the box, or did you buy some kind of upgrade?

Ive had the autoxray 6000 for about a month now and Ive used it on one obd 1 car (my 92 bonne) and about 15 obd 2 cars (everything from gm to ford to kia to nissan), While some cars seem to have more data than others, Ive gotten the trans temp and other similar data from the gm and ford cars I have scanned but not always on the imported cars. I guess it also depends on the age of the car cause the newer cars have alot more than the older ones. I scanned a 01 taurus and it had alot more data to show than the 97 f150. Both were ford obd 2 cars but had different things showing. For the price I paid, I am absolutely happy with the scanner. I have hooked the thing up to the computer but I have not upgraded it or done any kind of updates or anything. I have been wanting to post a review of the thing from my point of view complete with pics and details and stuff but I havent really had that much time and no camera. It will probably be a few more weeks until I am able to show my results from different cars obd 1 and 2 domestic and imported. The overall feeling I have of this thing is I got what I paid for and I am happy with it. I was not expecting it to be able to show everything there is to see on the cars computer as it is not a tech 2 or something that uses a laptop which I believe has alot more to offer due to the versitility of the software used. Like I said, for 300 bucks Im happy.

EDIT: I forgot to put that the 6000 already has the enhanced stuff right out of the box. there is no extra stuff to get other than cables and electrical testers and stuff. But the $50 software upgrade is for the 5000 series and down. GM, Ford, Toyota & Chrysler OBD-II Enhanced Data (Chrysler requires special cable - sold separately) is already on the 6000 scanner. On some cars Ive scanned, Ive had to tell the scanner what to show. It wont autimatically show evrrything the computer is reading from the sensors. Off the top of my head you click the data button, click on configure data (or something similar) and select the options you want to see. Ive also noticed that fords are bitchy when it comes to scanning sometimes. I know my bonne has to be fully warmed up in order to be able to scan all the (limited) things the computer will show but then again my car is using obd1.
