Default Looking for OBD2 reader suggestions

Looking for an OBD2 reader. A gentleman on the HRPT this year assisted me with one that was Bluetooth and used an iPhone app and seemed simple and effective. Iíd love to have one similar but open to ideas. Was looking at the HP Tuners MPVI2+ but I donít need the ability to write or change tunes. Any insight or suggestions would be most appreciated!

I bought this obd adapter and use with an iPhone app called car scanner. It works really well and syncs immediately at startup/ignition. The app can read trouble codes, clear trouble codes and you can setup virtual gauges as well. For some reason a lot of the free apps donít have certain gauges such as oil pressure and require you to purchase add on vehicle or engine specific packs in order to view the gauges and or view/clear trouble codes. This app with my LSA works flawlessly and the only thing I had to pay for was the adapter from Amazon.
