I use DashCommand currently, although I'm not sure how deep it investigates. Some 'tuner' background codes aren't usually visible on a simple top-level scan.

It's tuner codes that I'm keen to be able to see.

I think 'Carly' is the way forward them, most generic code readers won't find the 'air mass implausible' background stuff.

Sounds like it is. Thanks.

Bit of a bugger that the wifi adapter doesn't work for VAG cars too though!
