I've been looking into this OBD will only really do ECU, I've got a plug in dongle works well with loads of android apps, can't reset ABS,SRS etc tho but I found these have been told they are good. Get good reviews etc

 

https://www.autelsto...AxoCMSoQAvD_BwE

 

Or just Google Autel, I had ABS etc lights on after major strip down, getting reset from a mate who's a mechanic. I'm possibly going to buy Autel M808 Pro at some point, the one in the link is for one car and $10 per year per additional car. M808 looks like all cars and 3 years free updates.

Hope this helps someone as I've been looking/trying alsorts.  :box:
