Firstly, what type of computer do you have; Windows, Apple iOS, others?
99% of all OBDii readers run on Windows based OS. There are a few wireless readers that are compatible with mobile devices.
I personally use a Actron OBDii reader. Can read “Enhanced DTC’s.” However, I am currently in the search of a newer OBDii reader that can graph multiple PID’s for comparison during possible troubleshooting.
More specifically a Foxwell NT630 Elite. Have not decided yet. My old Actron is no longer supported and is almost 15 years old.
All in, it really depends on your budget. If you have a $300+ budget(US$ and I know it’ll be a tad more for you in the AU) then there’s a few brands; Foxwell, Actron and Autel just to name a few.
However, for the price point of less than $150 US, Foxwell is a pretty good price point for what I’m looking for.
Check Amazon and you’ll see. It looks to be about $222 AU for the Foxtron NT630 Elite.
Again, depending on your needs, you may want a more comprehensive reader such as the Foxwell NT650. Much more diagnostic functions.
Best of luck
