How about a bluetooth OBDII Scanner with tons of extra options besides the usual code reader and reset CEL! LM327 Bluetooth OBD-II Wireless Transceiver Dongle http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx.sku.16921

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.16921 copy and paste link...

The best part is that for those of you with Android Phones or iPhones there are free apps that will work right from your phone and they are also open platform for writing code which means that theoretically you can program the Dongle to super tune your cars chip, lock the doors, lojack, windows down, auto start... the possibilities are endless. I just ordered mine so I will definitely be updating as to how well this works and if there is anyone else here that knows about this I would love more info. Really interesting. Thoughts Anyone???
Cheers!!!

If it works with an iPhone, it's not going to be bluetooth.

tried using the insert link tool. dont know why it didnt work but you can click on the second one http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.16921 or this one or copy and paste if worst comes to worst. lol. still learning the site... sorry

oh edit: by the way if you have an android phone. ie nexus one, droid, eris then you can go to your market app and search automotive and it will pop up. best part is its so new that is free for now. so best to DL now even if you plan on waiting to by the $50 bluetooth module. iPhone i am not to familiar with but i imagine its a similar deal.

i will definitely let you all know how it works when it gets here, i already spoke to a buddy with an iTouch and iPhone who actually writes programs. So he is gonna let me run it with his devices. I know I can talk him into writing the extra custom codes into the program to if he likes it.
