[quote="slick94prix"]Yeah, I could do it that way, but I mean, I dunno, I would rather just have something hand held.

BTW, how does the data from the aeroforce get onto your computer, if say your were datalogging?

I've also even considered picking up a use Palm Pilot off of ebay ($20-$40), and then try to find software to read, delete, datalog, etc.....[/quote

Have you looked for an LS1M? I think you have to buy used though.

Yep, and yes, you have to buy used unfortunately. All I need is the cable, the software is free, and Palm'* are dirt cheap.

I have an auto xray3000 that I think I can sell and get this that does both the new and the older vehicles.

whats the deal with all these cheap scan tools that don't do KR? How hard is it for these manufactures to program that into these things.

It'* pretty much just code, but they're a business, if they can find a way to make some extra money, they'll do it...
