Actron CP9145 Super Autoscanner


Recommended Posts

I have been looking for a handheld code code reader, and was tempted by the Equus 3100, until I found the Actron Autoscanner which displays live engine data as well. I know it is twice the price, but if it does what it says I think it would be worth the extra.

Anybody have one who can comment? Can you read MAF airflows and voltages, oxygen sensors, etc?

Well, if you have a laptop computer I like Car-Code as it can give real time and recorded plots of MAF, O2 sensors, coolant temp, RPM, etc., etc. At $120 for the software and cable I have found it hard to beat.

I have a Davis CarChip EX that I am reviewing now. So far it looks like a good recorder (of up to three monitoring systems) but pretty limited as a diagnostic tool.

Thanks Loren, but I have a notebook system tester ;)

I am looking for a handheld device for quick tests on the 996 and other cars. Is the Davis system hand-held?

Edit:

Just found their web site. Interesting device, but not what I am looking for.

Loren,

Did you need to buy any extra bits or just the standard unit with ISO gateway that they mention on the Car-Code website.
