    Code Reader

    With the regular EML problems I am getting, i have decided to bite the bullet and get a code reader and wondered which is the better one to go for.

    or

    Agreed - I have the LR version and it works well.

    It wasn't me! A big boy done it and ran away.

    So better to go for the newer version then. I wondered if there were any extra features on it.

    I haven't tried them back to back to give you a comparison - what I can do though is let you see one in the flesh depending on where you are if it helps?

    The unit itself or photos of the screen in operation? I will get them tomorrow for you, and post them back.

    OK, I thought it might help if you could see it in action (had to dub the audio on this to prevent a copyright strike, but you aren't missing much other than the clicks of the buttons which are nice and tactile)



    And here is a static screenshot of the main menu (sorry it is a bit dark)
