Basic entry level OBD2 + live data graphing comparable with Autel AL519.
Foxwell have appeared in the last couple years and seem to be OK. You could also look at using a decent quality OBDlink Sx or OBDlink Mx bluetooth dongle to get the same features on your Android device or laptop.

However for me even for occaisional home use I would suggest you consider going to the next price range up to get ABS and SRS coverage.

Hi Andy: Thanks for the reply, may well give the Foxwell an outing for the price. All I need is something to keep in the glovebox essentially, not going to be something I use regularly but could come in handy at times.

After looking again at Autel kit, have decided to buy an Autel AL539b it's a bit more expensive but has some good extra features.

A smart battery tester is handy feature. I have a Ring branded tester it shows up battery problems before they give any other warning symptoms. Tip when testing with this type of tester connect directly on the battery post, as even connecting direct to the battery termminal affects the results.
