Recommendations for OBDII Code Reader to suit 2007 RX 350

Recommended Posts

Hi fellow contributors, which OBDII Code Reader would you recommend based on the following requirements?

1. Should be $100 or less,

2. NOT a Chinese import UNLESS the unit has Australian back-up, 

3. Either Bluetooth or Cable ( prefer Bluetooth which I can pair with either my iPhone5 or laptop ),

4. Must be capable of reading Lexus specific AND generic DTCs and turn off check engine light,

5. Must support multiple trouble code requests: generic codes, pending codes and manufacturer specific codes, and

6. In conjunction with displaying DTC, should be capable of explanation; eg. Lexus specific code: P1345 - VVT Sensor Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1)

[ Explanation - Variable valve timing sensor - LH bank - circuit malfunction ].

Any code reader which closely matches these requirements will also be considered.

EDIT: As I know very little about Readers, the requirements above were drafted from web pages which offered advice on readers.
