Editor's Notes

October 02, 2019:

Removed the Veepeak Mini because of quality concerns. Removed the Carista Adapter because of concerns with the usability of the app. Added the Autel AP200 and the Jethax 001.

We generally favored those scanners that work off of bluetooth as opposed to Wi-Fi because they can be used while away from home. Many of these scanners require a subscription to unlock all of the features advertised. Some only work with proprietary apps that often limit the functionality of the tool. Wireless scanners are great options for those that just require ECU code readings and deletions because most of these will not require app purchases for those functions. The BAFX Products 3127 is great for the needs of most users. The BlueDriver LSB2 is more expensive but will allow users to read ABS and TCM codes, which will mostly be used by mechanics. If you'll end up paying for all of the extra features for one of these wireless scanners, a wired scanner will often be cheaper in the long run.

Automotive repair can be dangerous and should only be performed by trained technicians to avoid personal injury or damage to equipment.
