Id be interested to see how stable the scope is in a pop out window while still using scanner functions.

Ability to overlay and merge the scope pattern and the scanner Pid over one another like a graph merge be pretty cool , maybe move the scope pattern to the right or left , zoom in or out as needed to compensate for differences in image display size and processing times between data pid and scope.

I believe the old VAG ODIS had a known good overlay on screen for scope graphing.

Maybe with enough subscriptions this idea could come true, but i feel like its already been developed somewhere by some aftermarket performance/race applications.

if you have an android device you should check out how the graphing works in the google science journal app. The scaling on the pinch and zoom is seamless.

I agree wholeheartedly!

If our equipment can't provide that it isn't worth the price of a roll of toilet paper.
Unfortunately, the way things are going, everything that's now locally installed on your PC's hard drive or in this case, the scan tool will be internet based only. There will be no local installations of programs...only internet based programs. There will be a basic software operating system installed on your device that can only access internet based programs that will require subscriptions. Once everything has cellular connectivity or satellite based internet connection, those will be the only way you will be able to access those programs and the information.

Wouldn't all the car companies and the Tool Companies just love to have everyone of us lined up and bending over barrels when that day arrives?

That will end aftermarket scan tools if that happens. I wouldn't even want one for free that couldn't function independent of the internet.

The TOTAL RELIANCE on the internet isn't going to work out well.
Virus', scrambled 0's & 1's, interruptions, CONSTANT "revisions" (which are really bubble gum patches for bad software, can you say MICRO-JUNK-?), the list goes on.
Sure, use the technology but don't rely on it exclusively....
The "smart phones" are making people dumber-!!
