I have not personally used it. But I haven't heard any issues with it.

What is it your looking for? Something that can scan enhanced codes? Log data, things like that? There are some PC based programs that work very well. I used autoengineuity for a while. Not a bad program. I'm not using HP tuners VCM suite, a higher price, but very well worth it.

Another option I'm looking in to right now is a Android app called torque. It'* $4.95 and you only need a bluetooth/OBD2 plug. I just picked one up from Ebay for $21.99 shipped.

Here'* a small example.
