    Is this any good?

    It saves me going to dealer every time I need to read the codes for some reason.

    Also handy if to make sure she is A OK.

    The scanner in the ebay advert is very powerful but the error codes it outputs are a pain to look up.

    It's true that the USB to Serial converters add an extra complication to an already hit and miss process. However, they can work quite successfully.
