OBDII Diagnosis interface buying tips
I am preparing to buy a diagnosis interface for my 159, and I cannot get a good overview of my choices. I searched this forum, and I'm still not clear what should I get. Can you guys help me with this ?
My requirements are:
- Wireless connectivity if possible (Bluetooth?)
- Full functionality with MultiECUScan (probably need adapter cables)
- Capability to read all ECUs inside the car (supported by MultiECUscan)
- (Optionally) Multiplexing switch, instead of adapter cables
My problem is that I see some items on ebay where they specify "no CAN" (for Yellow adapter I think?) - but it's still the same ELM327 as others. Also, I have an old ELM327 (v1.3 I think which doesn't work with MultiECUscan). So, not all ELM327 are the same...
So bottom line, can you tell me what should I check for when looking for interfaces ? Or do you think it's worth it to go for the CANtieCAR (the special interface bundled with MultiECUscan) at 240 EUR ?
