Just bought a cheap one that requires an external app to translate the codes. Their recommendation isTourge another user recommended Piston.
I also looked at the FIXD obdII that I has a built-in app to read the codes and interpret them but it's full of ads and is constantly pushing their upgrades.Any Forum members have any recommendations on apps for the interface?
TIA

I think it would be best to spend a little more on a scanner. Here's some recommendations:

Thanks for the Info. I'm just interested in it for as a curiosity to see what's going on with my engine...I'm long past DIY and was set on a plug in rather than a hand held.
I got a unit called FIXD.. made right here in Georgia and it doesn't require a separate app to read the codes.
Lists at $59 I got it for $20( although I hear it's loaded with ads trying to get you to upgrade to the pro version)

Sounds good. The Innova CarScan Pro 5210 sounds really good at $99.00.

Just my TWO CENTS ... I would not worry much about how things hook up and format. I'd be looking for one that can at least also read ABS and SRS codes. MANY of the cheap readers only do the standard GENERIC OBDII codes and not make specific higher level codes.

Thanks.I think the FIXD unit does bring up the higher level codes but I don't have the specs at hand. I do recall that was one of the selling points.

Yep..the avenger is the 4th Mopar I've had...learned the key dance way back ...also learned about the subcodes or whatever you call them when a well-meaning mechanic friend attempted to fix the transmission in my 300M based on the obd code pulled up in the key dance

Re:NT630Plus
Have you ever tried the ABS bleeding function for our cars? I can't find a specific list of compatible vehicles and which functions work on them. Thanks.

Yes I've done it on mine 2008 2.7
Ok, great, thank you. Is there a list of compatible vehicles that comes with the unit? Just wondering if it's compatible with 2011-14 Avengers. I suspect if it worked on your 2008 then it should work on later models.
