Default Good OBDII reader suggestions.

Just looking for a good OBDII reader to purchase. The check engine light has been coming on my car lately. I had it scanned at a Vatozone and it said catalyst was not efficient. I really do not think it is my cat, I think I damaged my primary O2 sensory, or got a false reading when I had to drive with the upper header somewhat disconnected from the lower pipe with the 02 sensor in it. I've looked at some scanners online and at a few stores, as well as the ScangaugeII. Just wanted to see what you guys had and were using.

Probably looking for something that I can hook up to my laptop.

but not with the laptop.

Anyway it was not connecting at all with miatas for some reason. It would connect with his new BWM. He is going to call innovate.

He let me borrow his bluetooth OBDII scanner. PIcked up a cheap Bluetooth dongle and cleared my codes. P420 cat. I think it is my primary 02 sensory.

On topic of scanners, does anyone have one that does live data on a 96? I have no problems using live data on my TL, but I don't get anything on the miata.
