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. Any specific phone app/bluetooth adapter combo you would recommend?

I have the Bluedriver. Works great. They update the app regularly for recalls/TSBs and probably other stuff. You can watch several data trends in real time on your phone w. Bluetooth. I'm planning/hoping to use the O2 sensor data to monitor air/fuel ratio and engine coolant temp. for a v8 swap. Don't have any experience with the other scanners.

I recently picked up a Foxwell NT630 Elite. It can scan and clear codes in the ABS/SRS system, and the reason I bought it is it can also run through the ABS bleed sequence. You can also use the NT650 that costs twice as much but has a bunch more features.

It's not a cell-phone based system but none the less is a really nice ABS/SRS scanner and tool.

I found an OTC 3210 last year that will do all of the engine management, SRS and ABS codes. It will also run an ABS bleed routine for those who need it. It has been discontinued but you can still find them reasonable priced. The replacement will not do the ABS bleed.

I have a cheap eBay ELM327 that I use with Torque, but a Bluedriver for getting codes etc as it is not limited to just the ECU as many are & will pick up codes from all the systems in the vehicle.

I have Blue Driver and it works the best over all on my LS converted JK. The best part is that they keep it updated.
