    Some time ago I bought a Midtronics HYB1000.

    I bought it with the expectation that I’d learn how to use it, and identify future problems with the hybrid batteries in my two Toyotas that are used as taxis.

    So far I’ve only used it to check for diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs).

    For both checking of trouble codes and hybrid battery analysis Techstream seems to do the same job.

    Is there any reason why I should keep it? Is there anything that the Midtronics HYB1000 does that Techstream doesn’t cover?
