I have done minor mechanical work on low tech US manufacturer vehicles 20+ years ago, but have left most complex repairs or diagnostics to professional mechanics or dealers as the amount of technology has increased and I’ve started purchasing European vehicles (Audi A6 and 2017 Range Rover Sport). But I’d like to buy a ODB2 reader for simpler tasks such as reading/resetting error codes.

From reading many posts in this forum I can see a clear bias towards GAP and Nanocom devices. But candidly, I’m scared to use a device with the capability of those two devices in fear that I would screw something up and not know how to resolve my error.

Can anyone recommend a good device for my situation? It appears that the iCarSoft LR 3.0 might be a good fit for my limited skills. What do others think about that device?
