I am looking at a Autel DiagLink OBD2 MD802 for Japanese cars. I need live data, ABS scanning is not necessary. Any other suggestions?

Without knowing your budget, any answer is a guess.

If all you need is a basic one with live data stream ability something like this will work.

I have a MD802 Elite and can say that it should do the job. .............lifetime free updates is nice, but its rather slow

The MD808 is probably the more modern answer with more features at the same price.

If you are not interested in logging/storing data then the cheaper Autel AP200 (that I also have) is a more elegant solution ...........I find I always grab this when I need to get a quick analysis

Others will have their own favorites

If all you want to cover are the toyotas in your sig, the ebay techstream dongle is hard to beat.

Would also like to know what sort of live data you want-- the generic stuff is covered by the Torque Pro app and generic ELM327 bluetooth dongle.

I have the maxidiag elite as well and its pretty capable, but it can take time to scan all the systems, especially MB. Be sure about which one youre getting, I know some only work with one model line once selected, and others work with all.
