A possible unit to use if the vehicle is pre 1996 would be an Auto X Ray.
This is an actual Scan tool which can give live data, I use mine quite a bit, the only real negative is that
\it only covers GM Ford Chrysler and some Toyota rigs
I have owned the Auto XRay 4000 for many years, and it has worked well. Real-time data, codes, resetting the MIL, etc.
I used mine with Toyotas, BMWs, Dodges, and GMs.
I really want to try one of the BlueTooth dongles and interface with Windows (phone or desktop). I am kind
of surprised the cheaper units do not have realtime data. I have heard of hotrodders using dedicated smartphones
attached to the dash, displaying gauge graphics realtime.
