Summary
I am still using and testing out the Topdon Plus OBD II scanner tool so far with good results.
 
Finding a problem a vehicles is having is easy by reading the code and then looking it up, from the unit or online.
 
If you are looking for your first OBD2 scan tool, or to replace a older unit than it is a good unit to use.
 
The functions and price make it a good mid range unit.
 
There is more expensive units with more options and low cost basic units that cost less.
 
Since it is a stand alone unit there is no need to have a tablet, smartphone, or laptop to diagnose a vehicles error codes.
 
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
