Question Innova 3150

The Innova 3150's newer version is Innova 3150e and Innova 3150f. I am thinking to buy Innova 3150f(latest version). Guys, would you like to share your personal opinion about this model? Right now, it's price is $212 at Amazon.

Are you a professional? Do you know how to use it correctly?
The "fix assist" feature is BS; if you can Google you can get better info.
There are much cheaper options for us amateurs. I suggest you look around a Harbor Freight catalog.
Unfortunately the OBD2 scanners that work with Torque do not do ABS or SRS.
Very few scanners that cost less Than $1,000 wil do programming, only reading.

As a scan tool why not? Info is great to have, it's up to the person to know how to use it and apply the info given.

No no! I am not a professional mechanic or anything like that. I am searching a good obd2 scanner that can figure out my car problems. If a cheap scanner can do that task, then I will not buy Innova 3150. I am looking around and searching the effective guide for this. But, I am not seeing much scanner at Harbor Freight. Although, I have seen lots of cheap scanner at amazon. Will test one of them.

Update: Just bought BAFX 34t5 Bluetooth scanner. Its price only $22.

Do you have a particular problem? For most engine codes you can go to Autozone/advance/O'Reilly etc to have the codes read for free. For ABS or SRS codes you would need a scanner that can do those.

You don't need anything with stupid definitions and advice. If any of it is relevant it is usually wrong.

If it is just OBD2 codes and data you want you should look into ELM327 readers that mate to a smart phone with the torque app.

They come in WiFi, Bluetooth and USB.
The Torque app free is usable from the play store.
