diagnostic software

Im interested in getting some diagnostic software for my laptop, what all is available? I know about AutoE, but im sure there's something else too. If there is something other than autoe how does it compare in features and cost?

Re: diagnostic software

I have the snap on solus $3500.00 and the AutoE does more stuff for f350 than it by far. And you can monitor many more parameters vs. the snap on. Buy the AutoE.

Re: diagnostic software

There is auto tap

But I think your general PSD population along with other platforms are using one brand AE.This is largely due to the fact a vendor had something to do with the addtitional support for the PSD community.I.E Dennis at ITP diesel.Even if he didn't.Dennis is the go to guy for AE.Been there when I had issues with updates.

I would agree on AE unless you can find a deal on a used pro-grade tool. If you want one of those Ebay might be a place to snoop around. AE is not perfect but it does work well. I think Neb had his AE for sale.
