Default Recommend a OBD/ABS/SRS Scan tool

Can anyone recommend a specific OBD/ABS/SRS scanner? From searching online reviews the Innova 3100J and BlueDriver come up quite often. Other brands such as Autel and Ancel pop up too along with other models of the Innova brand.

Any specific brand/model you'd recommend? Want one that can read OBD, ABS, SRS.

I use a cheap Bluetooth OBDII plug with the Torque App (I think it's Android only) for a good amount of stuff. I also have an Aeroforce Interceptor gauge that will read/clear codes. Finally, I have a cheap Harbor Freight scanner that will read/clear OBDII and ABS codes. None of these will activate the ABS purge process though.

I probably use the Torque App most of the time. The HF scanner has been useful in tracking down speed sensor issues.

This! One of the best investments I have made. It does it all. It's very useful trouble shooting any problems and I find it extremely useful when shopping used vehicles.

4.5 star rating on Amazon with over 4000 reviews speaks highly to the capability and quality of it.
