SOME GIVE THEIR MEANINGS ALSO

1. Shopping Tips for Selecting an OBDII compatible scanner There are a growing number of scanner compatible with 1996 and newer vehicles with a wide variety of features. With prices ranging from $250 to $2500 anyone looking for a scanner needs to do a little homework to find a tool that best fits your needs.
Will it work on your vehicle
First and foremost, the tool you purchase must support the vehicles you anticipate working on. Although it's true that OBDII is a standard, there are three different types of hardware communications used by OBDII vehicles. Some tools support all three and some are manufacturer specific. If you're a diehard Chevy customer, you may be able to save a few dollars by choosing a manufacturer specific tool.
Beside get to know Supported parameters, and if it is upgradeable?
