I'll have to look into the upgradeability of my AutoXray 2000. I like it a lot and it'* very user friendly, IMO, but I haven't looked into the active data logging yet.

You talking about the 4000 I sold you? Or have you since moved on to a different scanner?

The AutoXray EZ Scan 4000 worked well for me, though I would've liked more data-logging capability. All in all, it was a great stand alone scanner.

Lash next time we hook up we are going to tinker with that scanner... Ran out of time the last go around...lol


My Actron is great for the 95 and under GM'* and the like... But for OBD2.... Forget it.... Next scantool will mostlikely have the capeability to read enhanced data

I've looked around..and to my knowledge...unless you buy a Snap on that costs tons of money.. there isn't one designed for both OBD1 and OBD2 all in one with enhanced GM parameters.

What about an Auterra? I found this on ebay, it works with a palm pilot or a laptop and looks pretty good. Any input? http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Palm-...53592027QQrdZ1

Here'* an intersting(?) read - EPA OBD-II Scan Tool Evaluation

I also have the AutoXray EZ Scan 5000 - It gives me more information that I need. But, I've haven't used it on an OBD1 yet.
