Useful Tool

"This saves me the time of having to start up the full service computer to just pull or erase codes. I can also tell if the all the triggers are set for the NYS inspection. You will not get any other data other then freeze frame for whatever codes are stored. Oh, it will tell you battery voltage, that's it though.
I can't say anything about any troubleshooting information on the Innova website. I've not used it and probably won't.

"I'm a backyard mechanic and this tool allows me to diagnose check engine lights with confidence and keeps me form having to go to the local auto parts store or auto shop to have them read it. Great for trying to catch problems as they occur with the live data and data save option."

Good tool

"I received this the other day and used it on my 2000 Ranger. The scanner picked up the codes and displayed them. If your going to use the online program to finish diagnosing , do not erase the codes as it erases the scanner info too. The online program needs improvement as some functions don't work as easy as they say. The manual is just very basic and doesn't go into detail and the online info isn't much better. Instructions are confusing and need more detail."

Peace of mind

"Works as advertised. Nice to know when the check engine light is on whether or not the issue is likely to kill my car. Helped me avoid $6000 work that the dealership recommended by making me suspicious about their findings. Went to an independent local shop with a good personal recommendation and got out with the problem solved for about $1200."

"Dummy proof. Have worked on cars for many years and hated that you had to take your car to the dealership to retrieve codes. This unit is easy to use. Would be even better if it would scan older models but for the price it does everything it says it does."
