Default good obd 2 scanner with live data

my girl is making me make her an xmas list, i have no idea what i want so im trying to think outside the box. would love to get a good obd 2 with live data and maybe even up-datable. looking under 250-300 abs would be a plus too

any suggestions on brands, or actual models?

thanks in advanced guys!

Well, I'm not a fan of harbor freight but.... They have a basic scanner with live data and abs for around $100.00 like I said not a fan, but u get the basics with it.....of course there are much better, but I doubt u have a few thousand to drop on a real good scanner???lol

haha i forgot about that warranty, that is true. wonder if the 20% off coupon will work with that, i got like 7 laying around time to go read haha.

as for the gm tech 2, will that work with non gm vehicles?

im pretty sure i've narrowed it down between the innova 3130 and 3160

they are both obd 2, live data, abs readers, and are updateable

the differences are, the 3130 has fix assist, which based on what model it picks up via vin reader, it tells you what likely needs to be done

3160 has airbag/srs read and erase.

no model has both. which in your opinion is more valuable, fixassist or airbag/srs read erase

apparently the airbags/srs is limited , then again the fix assist i feel can put you towards the wrong direction and i could always just ask here on my jimmy if i read a code and am at a dead end lol
