    Wink OBD Scanner reviews???

    Hi,
    I have a 2003 Toyota Camry LE, 2002 Toyota Sienna, and 2001 Subaru Forester. I am interest getting a good OBD scanner, but unable to find any reviews on the following products:

    OBDPRO
    ELMSCAN 5 serial
    ELMSCAN 5 USB
    ELMSCAN 5 w/bluetooth wireless
    ELMSCAN 327 serial
    ELMSCAN 327 USB

    Any input, suggestion, and comment are appreciated. By the way, I do have a lap top with both serial & USB port.

    Joel,
    Have you try the wireless version? I am leaning toward wireless. Since most of the wireless handle upto 300ft, it would be nice to hook the USB to Bluetooth adapter from the desktop while the car in the garage. There is no need to lug the laptop around.

    Digimoto actually distributes mOByDic based interfaces that are manufactured by this company and they are good looking little units, high quality. I would recommend them as a Bluetooth option, but I do not have any experience with their ELM interface (the one they sell on the website), but I could only imagine it is very similar to the units we sell (just a different chip inside).
