With my Ford, I am able to use Forscan over the OBD2 to interact with the vehicle's software and diagnostic utilities. Does such a thing exist for our TB's?

To be clear, this is much more than simply reading error codes. It can run diagnostic system checks, reboot systems, and modify stored parameters.

EDIT: Forscan forum post directs to the following for GM OBD2 software: OBDwiz Automotive Diagnostic Software
Has anyone used this?

Wow. There looks like a lot of data can be had. I use a $20 Wireless dongle version I bought off of Amazon. Coupled with the Torque(lite) app that is free and I feel I have more than enough information. I haven’t kept up with what is available, but would like to see a reasonable priced version with abs data.

I use the Torque app on android, and it will display everything. it will reset fault codes, etc.. but from what i understand you cant modify other values because the programming is locked.

My father bought a dongle and (I believe) the OBDwiz software long before the cheap ones were widely available and he still uses it to this day. I'm not familiar with all of the features as I've only ever used it to check and reset the CEL, but I know he has used it to diagnose issues with O2 sensors and the like that I think would be beyond the cheap amazon ones.
