Don't know much about that product. I have a scangauge II that is quite a bit smaller. You can run it in your car as a gauge. It reads out most engine parameters live like ignition timing, throttle position sensor. It reads and clears codes.
Cost is about $160 I think.

Their faq states most countries have gone to OBDII or EOBD but you wouldneed to have that sorted out. I got mine off Amazon.
if you want something a little more user friendly, also consider the PX Kiwi. Its supposed to work just like the scan gauge, but with real time information on acceleration and shows you how to drive to save gas. Average person saves 20% in gas.. i think its cool just cause it looks better than the scangauge and is really tiny
