Nice. You convinced me to buy one, as the more work I do on my car, the more I need this functionality.

If you have a square obd2 port under the dash on the drivers side you should be fine, post a link to the scanner you are looking at and ill be able to tell better

Don't see why not, there is a section in the software for the steering wheel but I'm not 100% on that as I did not go in to see what it does

Awesome, now I'll be turning my drl's off for sure! I thought carsoft and a laptop with the damn rs232 port was the only option. Great find!

Just bought it myself, we'll see how it works on the daytime running lights when it gets here (ebay seller still needs to ship). Figured $40 is worth trying.
