Default AutoXray scanner

Buickman104 and I want to purchase a scanner. We were looking at this one

EZ-SCAN 5000

The next generation of automotive scanners have arrived. The AutoXray EZ-Scan is an OBD I and OBD II scanner which includes all OBD II protocols, including the newly released Controller Area Network (CAN) protocol, allowing for more capability and flexibility to manage the diagnostic process. The CAN protocol is currently being used in a variety of vehicles and will be the mandated protocol in all new vehicles by 2008. This tool includes all the benefits of the EZ-SCAN 4000 plus the added ability to scan OBD-I (1982-1995)vehicles(See VEHICLE COVERAGE below). Staying current with the very latest in automotive scanning doesn't have to be a complex effort. The CAN-compliant EZ-Scan makes keeping up with the latest a simple matter. Just turn to AutoXray, of course.

Me and at least one other person have that exact scanner. It will scan anything with an OBD port (1, 1.5, or 2) and is supposed to be CAN ready.

I like it!

I've only used it OBD II myself, and you can get streaming data from it. For a few bucks more (about $90 Ithink) you can buy the software to upgrade it to a 6000 which allows it to save the data.

That'* probably the coolest part of this scanner, you can do all sorts of firmware and/or software upgrades through software or online.

Pretty much. There might be some other little things... Actually the 6000 has one major difference - OBD-II ENHANCED But for $49.99 that can be added (where can I find 50 bucks?)

You've been to www.autoxray.com right??
