Default Easiest OBD-II LAPTOP ScanTool Solution.

Whats the best software as far as ease of use goes. Basically want to plug it in and it works.

Looked at AUTOTAP, it looks pretty cool but are there any other better options out there?

Powetuner or HP Tuners....

For laptop I guess I'd say for just a scantool, the best I've used is Autotap. However, I'd go for an LS1M over an autotap just because using a laptop for a scantool becomes quite a PITA over time. A palm pilot doesn't have the loading times and it makes things go a lot quicker.

one word of caution for the digimoto, it doesn't display KR. It shows timing, so you have to compute kr.
