I'm not an expert on OBD2 Scanners. But Amazon suggested a newer model of this item:
AUTOPHIX 3210 Bluetooth OBD2 Enhanced Car Diagnostic Scanner, Fault Code Reader Plus Battery Tester Exclusive App for Quality-Newer Generation
http://www.amazon.com/AUTOPHIX-Bl...B07P3H3421

This model seems to require Bluetooth connection to your phone.
This "newer" model is only $44 after clipping the 20% coupon.

Is a standalone model the better option on these types of devices (and Bluetooth connections to phones should be avoided)?

TIA

Really depends on the model. The #1 recommended OBD2 scanner was the $99 bluetooth one (forgot the name) but got beat out by one of the other non-bluetooth scanners recently. I had a $30 bluetooth OBD2 scanner for a while and it did most basic functions while being super portable (could keep it plugged in). Unfortunately, that was when I had an android because bluetooth OBD2s don't work with iPhones unless it's a Wifi OBD2 scanner. Overall, if you're looking for something that can do pretty much everything without breaking the bank, get one of these standalone models. If you don't need super advanced features then the bluetooth ones will be just fine, and if you want both the $100 bluetooth OBD2s will do it all if you can afford it.

Also, updating the firmware on my OM129 (micro usb port on the bottom to PC) took maybe 1 minute. It can also record and export logs to your PC.
