Hey guys just wondering what diagnostic tools you all recomend or use yourself. i stumbled across of few software products one from http://www.autotap.com/ and the other fromhttp://www.obd2.com/ that look pretty descent but not cheap
but i like the fact i can put my notebook too use that just sits around collecting dust for the past year and a half
just cant bring myself too sell it so think this is just the thing too give it new life.
anyone try any of these products ?? or something simular.if i were to buy one of these products am i limited too just my jeep or will this service other vehicles as well??
any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Ive seen the system demonstrated on the DIY Network looks pretty Impresive. Its much better than a code reader especially the Graphics. I dont know how much capacity it has as far as ABS and Transmission but for the price its not bad.
