...a PDA with aftermarket software and cable. they work well but aren't really made to withstand the harsh environment of day to day use in a shop. they are also pretty cost effective when compared to industry scanners.

keep also in mind that european manufacturers are the least friendly when it comes to sharing diagnostic info. you may not get all you think you will or should from them...esp compared to the domestics

They're about "useless" on German cars.
