Hi, It is Dan. Thanks for the request. Are you looking for portable and the most bang for your buck that reads multiple engines and live data streams for heavy trucks?

It can get quite expensive getting the individual programs on a laptop.

There is a shop version for much more money but not necessary if all you need is read and clear codes and view live datastreams.
