    Call me old-fashioned, but I believe in paying a fair price for another person’s effort, so I generally avoid anything pirated. For ‘diagnostics’ in my rav4 hybrid I use OBDLink with MX+, which includes OEM PIDs licensed from Toyota. As mentioned elsewhere, it is very convenient for both instantaneous gauges (I miss my gauges..... | Page 2 | PriusChat) and data logs (More on Hybrid 12V (auxiliary) battery charge control | PriusChat). One limitation is that Toyota PID names can be quite cryptic. OBDLink does not provide PID descriptions. So I peeked into Techstream, which seems intended to provide detailed PID descriptions under Data List Manager > Parameter Information. But all I see there is a copy of the PID name. Is this a limitation of all Techstream versions? Can Techstream users advise whether they see more detailed descriptions?
