best auto reader/scanner for weekend warrior mechanic Sign In

I have a 96 chevy 1500 pickup and 2010 Toyota Sequoia. I am interested in buying a reader/scanner to help with problems/maintenance. i do all of the work and maintenance on both vehicles. Can you give me some advice on a good unit. I am not sure if i need live data or not. Looking at Actron 9550 or 9575. What is your opinion on Actron and these 2 units. Any advice (or criticism) is welcome.

Are you wanting something to just gather trouble codes with? Which computer modules do you want access to?

If you have data stream information that's great, but you also must know how to interpret it and understand the system your dealing with to make it effective.

I have a little OBD2 pocket code reader that has some live data PIDs. It is funny, I find myself using it just as much as the more expensive scan tool.
